If you’re an invested makeup beauty guru like myself, then you can understand how MAC makeup is “Queen B” of the high-end makeup market. MAC has a large focus on professional makeup artistry, with some of the best makeup artists coming from the brand! It says a lot as to why MAC products dominate the beauty industry, and we can thank the many artists who have helped shape it! So in honor of their cosmetic dominance, here are 20 MAC makeup products you need right now!
MAC’s matte lipstick is everything that you could look for when it comes to a matte lip formula. When putting on this lipstick you’ll notice it applies buttery with lots of pigment, however, it still dries down to a nice crease-less matte finish once you’re done. This is the perfect matte formula, and one of the best MAC makeup products!
If you are thinking your makeup may be looking a little too powdery, then have no fear because MAC’s fix + is here to save the day. This lightweight mist is the perfect way to make your skin look fresh, renewed, and like skin. You can give your face a spray before applying makeup, and another when you’re finished and you’ll have a flawless finish!
A medium to full coverage foundation that will leave you with a finish of a photo shopped goddess. The studio fix foundation provides a great buildable formula for oily skin that blends well with both your beauty blender or brush! So if you’re looking for smooth looking flawless skin (I mean who isn’t), I highly recommend this product!
Ask any YouTube blogger and I guarantee you they will have this in their collection. The MAC paint pot is the primer you have been needing for your eyes. Although it is advertised as an eyeshadow cream, this product works best used as a nude shade before putting on other shadows. Trust me, once you apply other eye makeup on top you will see what I mean – no creasing, easily blendable, stronger pigment. There’s no going wrong!
If you’re looking for a bronzy gold highlight, you’ve met your match. The baked minerlized skinfinish highlighter goes on nice and creamy, just apply it to the high points of your face for a dewy look. This powder features vitamin E too, to protect your skin against toxins like air pollution!
6) Lip Pencil
A creamy application that can shape, define, or fill in your lips! MAC’s lip pencils are worth the investment. In addition they come in a wide range of colors to match whichever lip color you may be looking to add a bit of pop too!
The all-in-one pallet that will conceal your under eye, and correct those dark spots! The studio conceal and prep pallet applies nice and creamy on the skin, and blends with your foundation for a flawless and even finish. The pallet provides buildable coverage, as well as two color correcting shades! In addition, there are multiple pallets to match any skin tone, which is why I love this MAC makeup product!
8) Powder Blush
This blush is perfect if you’re looking for a creamy formula that will last you all day long! The powder blush offers a variety of shades that effortlessly blends with the rest of your makeup, leaving you looking healthy and flawless.
This eye shadow will add the perfect amount of glitter to make your eyes look wide, awake, and beautiful. What takes this shadow a step further from the others is how pigmented it is without even dampening your brush. It will blend easily, and apply creamy to every skin tone! A must have that you need to add to your MAC makeup products!
The MAC fluidline collection offers high quality gel eyeliners, brow’ gels, and eyeliner pens. But I’m completely here for the fluidliner gel eyeliner. This product applies smooth and creamy, and DOES NOT BUDGE! Which is amazing if you want a winged eye look for a night on the town and aren’t looking to come home with smudged eyeliner all over your face!
11) Strobe Cream
Nothing is worse then dull skin, and the MAC strobe cream will make that problem completely disappear! This luminous moisturizer will keep your skin clear with it’s vitamins and green tea that are infused into the formula! Just be careful, because if you apply too much you can definitely look too shiny.
These loose glittery powders are SO much fun to use! The best part about them is that there are no rules and they literally can be applied anywhere. So let’s get creative people, add a little to your eyes, cheeks, lips, chest, or shoulders! The possibilities are endless, and it will last you a full day!
This powder is what you are missing in your makeup routine, especially if you have normal to oily skin. Apply this product to your T-zone, or wherever you get oily to keep your skin looking drier throughout the day! Another way to use this product is to just apply it all over your face to have a more matte flawless finish.
Again, this is for my oily/combination skin people out there – this is the primer for you! A lot of people tend to skip priming their face before applying makeup, but I am here to tell you it’s an important step to keeping your makeup last, and keeping your skin looking flawless. This primer applies with a tint that fades within seconds, and prevents your skin from getting too oily. Definitely a MAC makeup must have!
An oldie but a goodie MAC makeup product, this is a lightweight yet medium to full coverage concealer that is very buildable and applies on smooth to the skin. The concealer provides a matte finish, and definitely covers any dark circles under the eyes!
16) 48 Lash
Yes everyone, it is now time for some lashes. The MAC 48 lash provides a natural whispy look that makes your eyes look completely out of this world. The best part is that if taken care of correctly, the lashes can even be reworn!
The fruity juicy collection has released these cremesheen glass lipsticks and the colors are to die for! These vibrant lip glosses look great paired on top of another lipstick, or worn plain for a more simple look. The cremesheen glass formula is smooth and soft, and provides great hydration!
This gel provides the perfect sculpting consistency to your eyebrows, while keeping them looking natural and sleek. The formula isn’t too greasy or thick, and is great for a quick apply if you don’t have all day to work on those unruly brows of yours!
19) Upward Lash
This mascara does everything you could possibly ask a mascara to do. It lifts and shapes your lashes, provides tons of volume, and turns them ultra dark and thick for a dramatic look. In my opinion, the best part is the small wand which allows you to reach the tiniest of lashes in the corner of your eyes!
This is a new favourite product of mine, as it offers all the best burgandy shades for the change of seasons. In addition, I love that they provide us with some matte, satin, and glittery formulas to play with. Overall, the product applies easily and the color options allow for some fun shadow’ looks!
