A few years ago (like in high school but we aren't saying just how many years ago that was ;0) I made my first M.A.C. Cosmetic purchase... It was a plum lip liner with fluid lipstick.. I absolutely loved it and must admit that it sparked a slight obsession. While on our trip to California I was tempted to stop in every M.A.C. store in hopes of finding a new product that I "needed." I decided to suggest a few items that I think every girl could benefit from using if they don't already. First things first, a good mascara.. My personal favorite is Mascara X. This mascara really plumps my lashes but allows them to look soft at the same time. I love that this mascara is not gumpy or flaky but has the perfect consistancy. The wand is also very nice and separates the lashes helping with the "fuller-look."
All right girls if you don't already know about M.A.C. pigments you are seriously missing out.. These are highly concentrated color dusts that you can use either as a substitute for eye shadow or to enhance the color on your eyes... I have a color similar to the one above that I actually use to highlight just below my brow and in the corner of my eyes after i have applied eye shadow.. I also recommend the colors Chocolate Brown, Rose, and Olive... They are all beautiful by themselves and great compliments to other colors..
M.A.C. has great eyeliner colors if you are looking for a little softer look that just black. Two colors that I recommend are Prunella(a deep purple) and Teddy( a lighter brown/gold).. I find that these colors are dark enough to accent the eyes but with a day look to them as well.
Now it's on to lips.. My friends will tell you that I have a slight fetish for lipstick and lip glosses... I have three lip liners that I use and surprisingly I use all three with the exact same lipglosses depending on my outfit and the situation. My three favorite are.. Plum (still after all these years it is a great color,) Half-Red (my newest find that I have found is lighter than plum but still looks good for both day and night) and Whirl.. this is the lightest of my lip liner colors and honestly it goes the best for day looks and especially just a little liner and clear gloss..
Last but not least... not by a long shot... LipGlass!!!!! I really could never list all of the colors that are currently in my purse but the two I use the most are Blissfully Buzzed( a creamy shimmery light color)... Viva Glam VI( pinky/red with a slight gold shimmer)... and Hot Stuff ( slightly pink shimmer with lip plumper)!!
Hee Hee I hope that all of you who share an interest in make-up enjoy some of my suggestions.. For all of you who don't really get the make-up thing I am sure that you can enjoy at least the Lip Gloss!!
