My favorite three... M.A.C

Hey Dolls :)

I found this bloomin' hard as I would say the majority of my favorite products comprise of M.A.C. I had originally narrowed it down to five products but was ruthless and stuck to the three product rule!

Pearl Cream Colour Base

I am in absolute love with pearl. Highlighting products make me happy and pearl is definitely one of the prettiest around. MAC's cream colour bases are multi use products - you can use them on the eyes, face and lips (however, not all of the colours are suitable for all parts of the face but you get a handy leaflet explaining all of this). Pearl is amazing on the eyes to be used to amplify eye shadow colours however I would always use another eye shadow base first as it does crease a little. However, my favorite use for pearl is as a highlight.

It's a really sheer product without any hint of sparkle of glitter - it just reflects the light in a really pretty way. It's perfect as an everyday highlight and in particular on days where I'm not wearing a lot of make up. One thing I love is that it doesn't drag at other products on my face because of the way it melts onto the skin.

Club Eyeshadow

I've posted about this lots but club is my number one mac shadow - the green/red/brown duochrome looks so beautiful together and is a quick and effortless eye. I definitely recommend using it under a dark base so as to get the most effect out of the duochrome. You can read more here.

Well Dressed Blush

Well Dressed is my most used blush of all time I think - it's one I don't really need to think about as it seems to go with everything. It's a cool toned pink with a subtle silvery shimmer running through.

It's quite buildable so you can go from a lovely light flush to bright dolly pink cheeks easily. It's an absolute staple of mine!

I think I'm going to do a separate lipstick post soon as I didn't include any here - I just couldn't pick a favorite! Next on my favorite three is Illamasqua...also let me know if you have any other brands you want me to feature!

Lots of Love
