MAC everyday favs.

Hi guys !

I recently uploaded this picture on my beauty Instagram page (@Beautyby_MLS) and everyone wanted to know what was what. So I decided to do a post, write how I use the products and my tip and tricks !

So starting with the Fix+ spray and going clockwise, enjoy.

Prep & Prime Fix+ Spray: I lightly mist my face before and after my makeup application, also throughout the day to hydrate and refresh. Love how it gets rid of the powder finish.

Skin Mineralize in Soft & Gentle: I use this with either a Real Techniques Fan Brush or a Mac 224, lightly buffing into my highest points of my face e.g. cheekbones,bridge and tip of my nose. Also use to highlight inner corners of my eyes.

Prep & Prime Highlighter Pen in Medium Plus: Use this underneath my eyes after my foundation but before my concealer, using a beauty blender in a dabbing motion.

Face and Body Foundation: I apply two layers as it is very sheer, always allow the first lawyer to sink in before applying second. Using a beauty blender.

Blush in Dessert Rose: One of my favourite blushers of all time ! Love applying this to my cheeks after I have applied my bronzer and highlight. Using MAC 168 brush.

Patent Polish Lip Pencil in Make Me Proud: Love this quick and easy lip gloss on top of any nude lipstick. It being a twist up product makes it easy for being on the go.

Lip Liner in Spice: My favourite liner of all time, goes well with pretty much every nude ever!

Lipstick in Spirit: My everyday lip colour, satin finish so it's not as dry as a matte lipstick however has equal amount of colour pay off. 

Bronzing Powder in Matte Bronze: I love using this to bronze up my face after setting powder. I use a MAC 168 brush along the sides of my face in the shape of a number 3, from my temples to my cheeks and down to the jawline.

Pro Longwear Waterproof Brow Set in Brown Ebony: Basically a brow mascara, use once I've finished filling in my brows to set them, also good if you use powder products on brows as if takes away that chalky effect the powder leaves.

Studio Chromagraphic Pencil Crayon in NC15/NW20: Love love love this as it is a multi-use product. Use around the brows and lips to correct and highlight and also in the waterline of the eyes.

Mineralize Concealer in NC20: Love how hydrating it is and highlighted finish it leaves under the eyes.

Mineralise Skin Finish in Light Plus and Medium Golden: Light plus to set my concealer, leaves such a nice highlighted look. Medium golden to set the rest of my face, doesn't leave it cakey and gives an extra smooth finish before applying my bronzer and blush.

Woaah sorry if you've ended up a bit overwhelmed haha !

Much Love
Monica xo
