After my Drugstore Makeup Kit post went over so well, quite a few people asked to see a MAC Starter Kit. Now I am not pretending to be a makeup artist and this may not work for everyone. I just put together a combination of my favorite products and what I believe will work well for everyone and every skin tone.
I wanted to make these picks based off products that would work for anyone looking for just a nice natural every day look but also build upon for a more glamorous look. I completely understand that MAC isn’t for everyone because of the higher price tags and while I am a self proclaimed “Drugstore Girl”, MAC has over the years, quickly become my guilty pleasure. Reason being, it’s amazing quality and you can always count on it to give you an amazing look.
A gorgeous satin soft pink, which is perfect to give you a natural look.
MAC Paint Pot “Painterly” – $17.50
A cream based highly pigmented eye color that is the perfect shade for “eye primer” for most if not all shadows. It’s long wearing and prevents creasing when a shadow is place on top.
MAC Eyeshadow “Naked Lunch” – $15.00
A highly pigmented powder that blends well. Naked Lunch is a soft pink with a frost finish with just a bit of shimmer and is completely workable for an everyday eye look or to be used as a base to build on.
MAC Shroom – $15.00
Another pigmented powder shadow that also blends well. Shroom is a soft beige with a satin finish that has just the slightest hint of shimmer. It’s completely buildable.
MAC Lipstick “Snob” – $14.50
A creamy light neutral pink that is perfect for an everyday look. It goes on easily and I believe the soft pink shades help to hide any imperfections on the lip.
MAC Lipglass “C-Thru” – $14.50
Tinted lipglass is the perfect “gloss” to provide shine that lasts. It can worn on it’s own or over lipstick. C-Thru is coined a peachy beige gloss with shimmer. It’s honestly the perfect nude that can be worn over ANYTHING, I know because I’ve tried. From a gorgeous nude to a bright red C-Thru is my go-to lip gloss.
MAC Lipstick “Myth” – $14.50
A gorgeous creamy nude that has fast become my favorite lip color, I use this with C-Thru over top and get many compliments on that perfect nude lip.
How do you justify buying higher end products, I know as a drugstore girl, I have to give myself a pep talk and convince myself it’s an *investment* before making an expensive purchase.
