My M.A.C. Love Affair

A peek into my make-up bag will tell you that I am obsessed with M.A.C. cosmetics. I love the chic black packaging, the silver embossed M.A.C. logo, but most of all, I love the products themselves. My love affair began at least five years ago when I first experienced the M.A.C. powder blusher in Pink Swoon - I was hooked from the beginning! The list of M.A.C. products that I rely on has grown steadily over the years, so here is a look at my top 5 products!


 Powder Blush

I love this product because it makes my otherwise-pale-cheeks look rosy and healthy every single day. I apply my foundation first, and then the loose powder (below), and then the blusher on top. It's great for highlighting your cheekbones and giving you that extra glow! I really couldn't do without it!
 Select Sheer/Loose

This powder is perfect for putting on top of liquid foundation as it really gives the skin that youthful dewy look that everyone desires. Like the blusher, I use it every day to give my skin that extra glow, and to even out my skin tone.
 182 Buffer Brush

I have had this brush for at least two years, and it is perfect for applying the above two products. It is a ridiculously soft brush, made from goat hair, and has lasted incredibly well. Don't forget to wash your brushes weekly to rid them of any bacteria and built up make-up!


 Eye Shadow

This eyeshadow is the newest M.A.C. product in my make-up bag (bought only two weeks ago), and I am so glad that I have discovered it! It is a great all-round eyeshadow, not too heavy, yet just enough to enhance the eyes and make an impression. My life often involves a long day at the office, and then going out afterwards, and this eyeshadow is great for day and night.

 228 Mini Shader Brush

This brush is another recent addition to my make-up bag, and as with the eyeshadow, I am delighted with my purchase! It is small and thin enough to fit in my make-up when I need it to, and it is the perfect multi-functional eyeshadow brush; as well as using it for my lids, I also use it in the outer V of my eye, as it is dainty enough to give the right effect.

What are your M.A.C. must haves?
