$100 at MAC: What Should You Buy?
If you had $100 to spend at MAC, what would you get? I get this question many times from all of you, so I thought I would put together a list of what I would get!
FYI: My list is based off what I believe is most unique to MAC. Yes, there are a TON of eyeshadows and lipsticks that you could easily get, but why pay $11 each if you could find the same color somewhere else for cheaper? So…. I picked the more unique colors that other brands don’t have. I hope this helps!
Fix + Spray
This is by far my favorite products that MAC sells! I use it everyday after I finish my makeup to give my skin that youthful glow. You can also mix it with pigments to get a wet eyeshadow look, or spray in your hair to make it shiny and soft.
If you have watched any of my videos, you know that I swear by this brush. I love it because it’s stiff and dome shaped which is great for smoking out eyeshadows, blending colors in the crease, or feathering colors together. You can even use it to apply cream products to the lid as it gives a soft application. This brush is a staple in my everyday kit!
This is another favorite brush of mine that I use every day! It’s the perfect brush for smudging eyeshadow along the lashline, defining the crease, or creating the perfect “outer V”. I don’t even remember what I used before this brush, but I don’t leave home without it!
Expensive Pink Eyeshadow
I realize that MAC has well over 100 eyeshadows, and most all of them are pretty. But… this one is very unique to me and looks great on just about anyone! It’s a medium pink color that works well for an everyday look, and since it is a warm pink, it is flattering and doesn’t make you look sick Plus, I can’t think of any other brands that have this exact color.
Price: $11.00 (for the refill pan)
Amber Lights Eyeshadow
This is another gorgeous color that looks good on everyone, and I mean EVERYONE. I haven’t found a client yet that this doesn’t look great on. It’s a warm golden bronze color that can be toned down for an everyday look, or paired with a black shadow for a fantastic date night look. There are some brands that have colors close to this, but it’s not quite the same texture or richly pigmented like this one!
I am a 100% addict to gel or cream eyeliners. They glide easily, last a long time, are rich in color, and are easy to apply. I like this MAC one since the gel formula doesn’t dry out and look cakey on my eyes. I love to dip an eyeliner pencil in it to line my waterline, or use a bent liner brush for that perfect winged liner. You can choose from 6 colors of fluidlines, but the black one can be used everyday
Total cost for this shopping trip: $105 (ok, so I was $5 off- give up Starbucks for one day )
