Nothing like playing with new makeup to make getting ready in the morning a little less painful.
I’ve been experimenting with the MAC Fashion Pack collection this week and snapped these pictures one morning before going to work. It was so gray and gloomy outside that I decided to go all out with my FOTD.
Well, “all out” is a relative term. Normally I stick to neutrals for my going-to-work makeup routine, but sometimes it’s nice to switch things up a bit.
MAC Fashion Pack
Available online June 9, 2016
Available in-store June 23 through July 28, 2016
“Lead the way with a new wave of front-row worthy hues. Fuchsia, violet, emerald, deepest plum, midnight…ready to wear, any way we dare! So, be a doll and show us how — the Fashion Pack is always in the know.” -MAC
For this makeup look, I used a few of the shadows in the new Runway Worthy Eye Shadow x 9 palette. I used Dress Me Up all over my lids, Runway Worthy in the inner corners to brighten my eyes, and then applied sparkly violet Zip Me Up along my lower lash line.
I finished with navy blue MAC Fluidline Pen in Indelibly Blue for a nice winged liner. It’s dark enough to define, but the dark blue isn’t as harsh as black.
I rarely wear eyeliner, but this one is so easy to apply that I’m thinking I may have to wear liner more often :-).
This x 9 palette has lots of bold colors, and it intimated me a little, but after playing around with them, I can see why MAC chose this lineup of colors.
They look really nice together, and you can work them into so many different looks!
So, yeah, I guess you could say that MAC knows what it’s doing, LOL.
More MAC Fashion Pack collection reviews/goodness
The lipsticks in this collection are gorgeous, so I had a hard time choosing which one to wear with this look. I ended up going with By Special Order, which is a red/fuchsia with a stunning Amplified finish.
OMG, this lipstick is so smooth and creamy, but it doesn’t feel thick at all. Love. It. Definitely check this one out. There are lots of red lipsticks on the market, but I think this one is special. It’s right in that middle ground between red and pink.
