MAC Cosmetics Shadestick

MAC’s Shadestick is a rich, smooth eye shadow stick with a shiny, silky finish. Shadestick can be used as a shadow or an eyeliner… or both! When you apply it to your eyelid, the first layer will appear quite sheer. Use just a little if you want sheer coverage, or apply in layers for a deeper, more intense look.

Eyeshadow is a great way to emphasize your eyes and create some really pretty looks. Most shadows come in powder format in little pots without any instructions. With so many different colors and brushes, it can be difficult to know where to start when applying eyeshadow. Since this “how-to” is part of our beginner’s How to Apply Makeup series, this is a basic routine for an everyday eyeshadow look. We have instructions on more advanced looks on our eye makeup page.

1. You will need a minimum of three colors to achieve a pretty eyeshadow look. Choose three shades in the same color family: one very sheer, one with a medium tone, and one dark color.

2. Begin with the sheer shade. This will be used as a wash over the entire eyelid. Neutrals are best for this purpose. Sweep the color over the entire eyelid all the way to your brows using a flat eyeshadow brush.

3. Next use the medium shade. Apply it only to the lid using a tapered brush and stop when you reach the crease. This color should fill the space between your lash line and the crease.

4. Finally, use the darkest color. This color should be applied sparingly. Remember, you can always add more but if you start out with too much, your look will be ruined. Using an angled brush, apply this color into the crease and then extend it slightly past the outer corner of your eye using a light sweeping motion.

5. Blend, blend, and blend some more. This is the most important step to achieving a natural look. Use a big, soft blending brush and brush in an outward motion from the inside corner toward the outside corner of each eye.

6. To tie the whole look together, you can take the darkest color and use it to line your lower lash line. A wet eyeliner brush can transform dark eyeshadow into a great eyeliner.

MAC: Warm and Cozy Collection

Sep 09 2009 | Categories: MAC Cosmetics Care Blends Essential Oils, MAC Cosmetics Limited Edition Collections, MAC Cosmetics Lip Conditioner Stick SPF15, MAC Cosmetics Lip Conditioner Tube, MAC Cosmetics Mineralize Face and Body Lotion, MAC Cosmetics Mineralize Skinfinish, MAC Cosmetics Nail Lacquer, MAC Cosmetics Shadestick, MAC Cosmetics Tinted Lip Conditioner

Release Date: December 9, 2009

A fireside fantasy far from the maddening crowd is undeniably appealing. Seek refuge in the warmth, the glow of skin rosy with Refined Golden Mineralize Skinfinish, Shadesticks in Cuddle, Nurture and Snuggle shades, cozy as a mug of cocoa on a bearskin rug. Care Blends Essential Oils in Sweet Orange + Lavender, or Grapefruit + Chamomile feels soothing and sultry when elements are harsh and extreme…add MAC signature innovation with Mineralize All-Over Moisture Lotion, a new permanent product, and see new radiance, revivified lustre, optimum health. Like going on retreat and communing with nature, it’s an earthly way to bring back what the city takes away, and a sensual solution to make life simple, but luxurious. Winter beauty begins here.

MAC Warm & Cozy features many of the colors that you might expect a winter collection to carry: darker shades and neutrals with color names evocative of cuddling up by a warm fire such as Mulled Cider eyeshadow and Warm Me Up lipstick. Part of the fun of winter makeup is getting away with darker shades that you might not be able to pull off during the rest of the year, and from that standpoint this collection does not disappoint.

Warm Me Up Amplified lipstick is a particularly noteworthy shade. It is a great warm pink color that is perfect for everyday wear. It somehow always happens that the best shades turn out to be limited edition and this is no exception. It’s a color that will look great on nearly everyone so grab a few if you really like it.

There are two shades of MAC’s ever-popular Mineralize Skinfinish: Comfort and By Candlelight. By Candlelight is a soft pink color that makes a great highlighter on the cheekbones. You can also use it lightly on your entire face for a pretty all-over natural glow. It is much prettier in person than the description implies.

The Close for Comfort Tinted Lip Conditioner is another great everyday color that gives lips a hint of color without looking overdone. I only wish they would have made it in stick formula for neater application. The Two Tinted Lip Conditioners plus the Lip Conditioner tube and stick in this collection arrive just in time for dry, chapped winter lips.

A new offering is the Care Blends Essentials Oils. These oils are designed to hydrate skin while relaxing your senses. The Sweet Orange + Lavender variety is particularly lovely. You only need to use a small amount, rub it into your skin before you apply foundation, and the result is very soft, dewy skin and a pleasant, uplifting fragrance.

Warm & Cozy is a large collection filled with such a great range of colors that everyone will be able to find something that lights their fire.
