Must Haves From MAC

Hello Beauties,

MAC is a much loved beauty brand for all, but can be daunting if you’re new to makeup so today’s post is all about the hits from MAC. To this day I still get overwhelmed by the variety at MAC, so even if you’re a regular MAC shopper hopefully you’ll find some new faves!

MAC Pro Long Wear Concealer

This is a great heavy duty, long wearing concealer for blemishes. I personally find it too heavy under the eyes, however many people do use it under the eyes. This provides full coverage and is great at hiding those pesky spots!

MAC Kohl Eyeliner- Teddy

Teddy is a beautiful chocolately brown, shimmer eyeliner! Because its brown it’s a lot softer than black. I use this both in my water line and my top lash line for added definition.

MAC Eyeshadows

You can’t go past MAC eyeshadows, they have a beautiful selection of colours and the quality is impeccable. The eyeshadows are really pigmented and easy to blend. Yes there are cheaper alternatives out there, but if you wear eyeshadow a lot then you need some MAC ones in your life. Click here to find my top picks for MAC eyeshadows.

MAC Mineralize Skin Finish- Soft and Gentle

While Soft and Gentle is not my all time favourite highlighter, I do think it’s pretty special. Its definitely grown on me as I’ve realised you can keep it subtle or build it up for an intense highlight. Soft and Gentle is quite a neutral highlight, leaning more towards the silvery/ pinky side and is universally flattering.

MAC Lipsticks

MAC lipsticks are definitely the best on the market! I love all the finishes except Retro Matte, which are exceptionally drying. Click here for some of my favourite MAC Lipsticks, including lipstick swatches. They’ve kinda changed so I’ll recap a few of my faves, Twig, Rebel, Lady Danger, Whirl.

MAC Fix Plus +

MAC Fix Plus + should not be confused as a setting spray as it will not prolong the wear of your makeup. MAC Fix Plus + can help settle makeup so it looks less powdery but won’t prolong it. I like it both to settle my makeup but also to intensify my eyeshadow or pigments to become more foiled. I spritz my eyeshadow brush and it automatically changes any eyeshadow to become a foiled eyeshadow.

I hope this post helps you all on your next MAC visit! Make sure to tag me in your purchases @rachelbeautystyle

  1. As a M.A.C lover we definitely share a lot of the same must-haves! I will have to pick up the Teddy Kohl Eyeliner though, it sounds gorgeous! xx


      1. I love their Pearlglide Intense Eye Liners – just as the name suggests they glide right on and I love smudging them out for a soft smokey line or applying strokes over my eye lid and then smudging it out 🙂 x


  2. I would love to try more base products from MAC, but for now I LOVE their lipsticks. Need to try Whirl, Twig and Lady Danger sometime! 🙂


  3. Oh wow, that Lady Danger looks stunning Rachel! Believe it or not I haven’t tried ANY MAC lipsticks – will have to do something about that hey lol. I use their Omega (matte) eye shadow to contour my nose – have done for years, it’s the best shade for my skin tone, and I haven’t found anything else on the market to match it xxx
