Get Your MAC On

Last week, MAC did a live chat with Eve and her personal makeup artist, JJ. There were countless blogs that posted the conversation. Here's what I got out of it that stood out the most:

  1. Golden Bronze Loose Powder..gets you that fresh, glowy highlight. Use powder brush 150 when applying.

  2. JJ's favorite brushes: 252 & 224

  3. Bang on Blue..great eyeshadow, mix with electric eel for a royal blue treat!

  4. On the daily: Smoulder eye pencil & Golden Bronze Powder

  5. Mascara application: Fibre Rich Mascara and then apply Mascara X for thickening & lengthening lashes

  6. Favorite lip gloss of the collection: She-Boom lipgelee

  7. Best lashes: #7

  8. Face & Body Tint..uses at night for the deifinite dewy, flawless look. Apply with fingers or a sponge

  9. Perfect nude lip pencil: Subculture

Until next time pretty chicas!

Set the Foundation

During this time of year, my skin color changes. It gets darker of course and my foundation is not the perfect wintery shade I've been using pretty much up until now. Below, I've listed a few brands of foundation with the first 2 being the ones I frequently use:
  • Mary Kay Medium Coverage Foundation Shade 500
  • Ben Nye Loose Powder in Sienna

Top 3 to try:

  • Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation
  • Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation
  • MAC Face & Body

So I've made it a point that's long overdue to go out and try some new foundations to see what other coverages will work best! Also, I've heard a lot about foundation primer and wondering if there's really a difference using that? Does primer lift shine or should a matte foundation be used? For those of you out there, please feel free to leave a comment with your favorite brand(s) of foundation!

Ciao Bellas!
