MAC To The Beach


Here is another fun and beautiful collection from MAC to ring in the summer season! To The Beach includes bronzy shades and scorching lip and eye colors.  For summer, I love light makeup- lightly bronzed cheeks and a pop of coral color on nails. This collection doesn’t disappoint. I am thrilled that there are ways to look tanned without stepping out into the sun.

Todays reviews come to us from Samara, a 23 year old mother of two who is way more adventurous when it comes to makeup application than I am!

 Lustre Drops and Powder

Lustre Drops & Powder Blush

On a scale of one to ten, one being the palest of skin & ten being the darkest, I’m about a one and a half.. maybe a two. So come summertime, I am on the lookout for anything that will give me a summery, bronzy glow. MAC powder blush in “Get-Away Bronze” is the perfect bronzer; not too orange-y & not too dark. It’s best applied with a fluffy blush brush (a great one is MAC brush 129) across your cheeks, forehead and nose.. where the sun would naturally tan your face. 
To top it off, I use the MAC Lustre Drops in “Sun Rush” as a highlighter for my cheek bones. You can also mix a couple drops (just remember, a little goes a long way) in your daily foundation to give your skin a subtle glow. It can also be mixed with your body lotion and be applied on your shoulders, forearms, legs, etc.. I’ve tried this and it works great & doesn’t rub off easily (on clothes and such) like a lot of other shimmer lotions do. 

Now lets check out the vibrant eyeshadows from this collection! When I first opened “Firecracker”, I immediately thought of a color that would be found in a breathtaking sunset. It’s a gorgeous coral / red color and as all MAC eye shadows are, it is very pigmented & easy to apply.

“Sweet & Punchy” is a shimmery green color with gold undertones. It reminds me of a day at the beach & would be perfect with some mascara and bronzer for a summer day or with black liquid liner & mascara for a night out.

I have a few more MAC items from this collection which I know all readers will love. Stay tuned for more…To The Beach will be available on May 27th. In the meantime, check out all of MAC’s products here.
