10 of the best MAC products
1.MAC Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 FoundationMAC's bestselling foundation, the Studio Fix Fluid is one of our favourite face bases of all time. It contains silica which absorbs excess oil and minimises shine on the surface of the skin, so the complexion appears flawless throughout the day. Vitamin E helps to hydrate without ever making the foundation feel heavy, and it's also humidity and sweat-resistant, suitable for all skin types and comes in 64 shades.
2.MAC Prep + Prime Fix+The MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ is a makeup product your bag should never be without. A facial mist that can be used in a multitude of ways, it's packed with nourishing botanicals, which help to soften and condition all while combatting environmental aggressors. We like to use underneath makeup as a primer, and then over the top to set our foundation. Plus, it now comes in different scents outside of the original, including coconut, rose and lavender, as well as 2 Fix+ Strobe shades in Pinklite and Goldlite.
3.MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish HighlighterFor a highlight with super wattage, there's no better product than the MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish Highlighter. Made from a unique liquid-powder hybrid formula, the texture feels super creamy and melts seamlessly into the skin for a gorgeous lit-from-within glow. Infused with pure pigments and spherical powders, the highlighter gives a "second-skin" finish which stays put on the skin for up to 10 hours.
4.MAC Pro Longwear ConcealerMAC's Pro Longwear Concealer is a liquid concealer that once applied, doesn't budge. A matte finish, it doesn't feel drying on the skin or settle into fine lines, meaning your makeup won't ever look cakey. It uses unique film former technology and micronised pigments, which help the concealer to stretch over the skin and camouflage a range of imperfections from dark circles to blemishes.
5.MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot Eye ShadowOne of the most well-known eye shadows in the beauty industry (and one of the most-used by professionals), the MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot Eye Shadow comes in a range of shades to help you create your perfect eye look.
