Highlights to the moon and again! The MAC Shiny Pretty Things Holiday 2018 assortment, which is out now in case you were craving high-intensity highlights, is a restricted version launch break up into two components — 1) a make-up assortment with eyeshadows, liners, lipsticks, glosses and highlighters, and 2) a complete lotta present units.
Here’s a glance I did right now with each of the highlighters from the assortment, simply to provide you an thought of what you possibly can do with them. Mind you, I’m not likely a gal who likes to stroll round highlighted to the gods, however I used to be taken over by an otherworldly power once I noticed these two new Extra Dimension Skinfinish Powders, and it mentioned, “GIRL, YOU NEED TO SPREAD THOSE GLITTERS ALL OVER YOUR FACE LIKE BUTTAH.”
Soooo I did. 🤗
Highlighter #1: Snowflushed ($35)
This one’s a metallic bronzed pink with medium-sized items of pink glitter, and it appears to be like like a glittery powder model of MAC Strobe Cream in Pinklite. I’m carrying it on my higher cheekbones, and I like it!
Highlighter #2: Oh Darling ($35)
I patted a small quantity of metallic gold Oh Darling in the internal corners of my eyes, then dusted it throughout my face with an enormous fluffy brush.
Yup, ALL. OVER. MY. FACE.
You can completely do that with any of the Extra Dimension Skinfinishes if you happen to actually wanna go for sparkly, shiny pores and skin, however go simple on any areas the place you’re breaking out, or skip these locations utterly.
For the most half, all the things else I’m carrying right here is from MAC, with the exception of what I utilized in my brows (NARS Brow Perfector in Atacama). The basis is a mixture of MAC Studio Fix in NC42 and Strobe Cream in Pinklite, which I additionally used beneath my eyes to cover any darkness.
No face powder, though I did mud a little bit MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Give Me Sun on my cheekbones, after which tapped matte scorching pink Both Cheeks Lipstick, which can also be from the Shiny Pretty Things assortment (it’s like a matte model of Show Orchid) on high of that with my finger as a blush.
So as to not blind the astronauts on the International Space Station, I saved my eyes and lips matte. So that’s Kajal Crayon in Flourish Me Beautiful (the Kajals are back on the MAC website, by the way, so seize one when you can), Paint Pot in Layin’ Low, Extra Dimension Waterproof Mascara, Matte Lipstick in Both Cheeks, and the Lip Pencil in Talking Points.
What do you assume? I really feel kinda ’80s on this, however in a great way. Is this one thing you’d put on? Or are you not into shimmer?
