the MAC glow

All MAC e'rything, say what? Well.. not quite but this is definitely more MAC than I usually wear on my face in one go. Lately my MAC stash has increased to include some other products aside from lipsticks because although a girl can never have too many MAC lipsticks, it's nice to explore new products too. 

I had a voucher for MAC and I fancied trying something new. Lately the whole Prep & Prime range and the colour correcting phase all make up brands have been going through has really been getting me intrigued. With my voucher I bought the MAC Vanilla pigment and the Prep & Prime CC primer in Illuminate but I was also gifted a Prep & Prime highlighter and picked up the MAC Sculpting Cream whilst in Prague. I used all of these together with my MAC Mineralise Skin Finish powder to create a  natural and sculpted glowing make up look.

I have been absolutely loving browsing tumblr looking at all of the gorgeous highlighted looks for summer and it's really nice to incorporate more cream based products in the heat. I used the MAC Vanilla pigment on the brow bones and in the inner corners of the eyes to brighten up the eye area. I also used the pigment to brighten up my base by mixing in some of the pigment with my foundation, it worked really well and didn't add any shimmer or glitter like I expected. I also used the vanilla pigment on my cheek bones which was a little difficult and might work better mixed in with a cream as it's a little stiff to work with - probably since it's not actually for highlighting your cheekbones but hey ho.

The CC cream helps to brighten up my face and stop it looking so grey and dull which it mostly does, but it definitely couldn't be used alone as the violet tones whiten the face so much, so I just use it under my foundation as instructed. Using the Prep and Prime highlighter and sculpting cream you can create a really subtle sculptured look without it looking obvious and try hard this summer. I like to finish it all off with the MAC MSF as it's really light and doesn't make the skin cakey or mattify the skin too much.
