M.A.C Makeup Pickups

Hi Beauties!

This past weekend I ended up in Brighton. I was excited to visit all the stores as my friend had a make up appointment at M.A.C. She invited me to tagalong. 

I’ve been trying to decide on a new foundation that accommodates my skin color. All of my other foundations are more orange base as opposed to golden. I didn’t know that M.A.C. gave 10 day samples of foundation. They were super friendly and helpful. I was given two different foundations NC45 and NC47.

The foundation is the Studio Fix Fluid which is good for people with oily skin. If you’ve been following me you know I have disgustingly oily skin. I explained to the make up artist that I had super oily skin. She then suggested I try the mattifying gel and the oil control lotion. I also was given samples of both of these to try. I will do another post with my thoughts on these two products. 

It’s hard to choose foundations because one matched my neck well while the other matched my face better. I think I’m going to go with NC45, as it blends better on my face. How do you choose your perfect foundation?

I also picked up a few other things this highlighter from M.A.C. called, Oh Darling and it is EVERYTHING!! The golden shimmer is gorgeous on all skin tones.

I also opted for honeysuckle matte lipstick by MAC. This pinky toned nude is gorgeous with MAC’s chestnut liner on my skin tone.

I hope you enjoyed my pickups and if you have any comments or suggestions please leave them down below. πŸ’œ

Thanks so much for reading!!!

    I swatch on my upper chest to find my match. My bare face is way more pale than the rest of my body, my upper chest is a happy medium for me.
