MACaholic? I say yes! Must have brushes!! | Review

Aren’t these just exquisite? So classy and sophisticated. I have been looking for the perfect brushes for a very long time, and I mean a veryyyyyyy long time…and that must have been harder than finding a pin in a haystack. It was exhausting to say the least. Sometimes I wonder why I didn’t go to MAC earlier (always read positive reviews), my life would have been a lot easier and to be honest I would have saved some money. Now I know that MAC brushes are not cheap by any means, but if I were to add up the money that I spent on other brand’s brushes…it would equal more than what I have paid for my high quality MAC brushes. I have picked out the brushes that I use on a daily basis that I really could not live without! This is the perfect set to have whether you are just starting out or use make up on a daily basis.

FACE BRUSHES:

MAC 138 Tapered Face Brush

IMG_3199

This is the perfect brush for setting powder underneath the eyes and all over the face. It is dome shaped so it gets really close to the eye and it’s fluffy enough for all over the face. It can also be used to blend out contouring, blush and/or highlight that is too strong.

MAC 129 Powder/Blush Brush

IMG_3198

Perfection when it comes to bronzer and blush application.  Use it to bronze with this all over the face and then contour with a different, more precise brush. It doesn’t hold on to makeup so you can go ahead and use the same brush to apply blush right after. Two birds with one stone! WOO!

 

EYE BRUSHES:

MAC 224 Tapered Blending Brush

IMG_3200

Best blending brush that was sent down from Heaven! It is so fluffy and round and somehow still perfectly fits into the crease. It doesn’t hold on to pigment so you can be as sloppy as you want with the transition colors. It blends everything out so impeccably. Also, can be used as a highlighting brush!

MAC 217 Blending Brush

IMG_3201

A smaller and more precise blending brush. This is more of a flat brush that fits right into the crease. Very easy to apply a good amount of pigment and keep it in the crease, without going up too far and making your makeup look crazy.

MAC 239 Eye Shader Brush

IMG_3202

A flat brush used to apply eye shadow all over the lid. It picks up a lot of pigment which is great!! Its also very flat and densely packed so its easy to make sharp lines with.

MAC 275 Medium Angled Shading Brush

IMG_3203

If you love creating an outer V, but have trouble doing it with other brushes, this will be your new best friend! This has a slanted shape which makes working  eye shadow into the outer edge of your eye a piece of cake! Also the perfect brush for highlighting under the brow and in the inner corner.

MAC 210 Precise Eyeliner Brush

IMG_3204

This is probably my favorite brush in the history of man kind. It is the best eye liner brush!!! I love how tiny it is because it helps with precision. I was never able to get a hang of the angled brushed, could never get a sharp point but those days are over!!! Use this with some gel liner and you are going to have the fiercest cat eyes ever!

Overall, MAC brushes get a 10/10 rating from me. They are hand made with the highest quality of hairs, which makes them extremely soft and long lasting. It is absolutely worth the price for something that will last you about ten years (if you take care of them properly). I wouldn’t trade these babies for anything!

 

I am always willing to try other brushes so if you have any suggestions, leave them down below and as always, please subscribe!

XOXO, Ruta.

Ever since I was a little girl I have loved makeup! At the age of ten I couldn’t even walk out of the house without some lip gloss on.

Over the years I have tried out hundreds of products, of which some were successes and some were miserable failures. I am happy to say that I have found my ride or die products, at least for now! I mean it only took me 21 years of my life!! Below you will find the name, a description of the product and how to use it, and if you click on the image, you will be redirected to a site where you can purchase it (they will be listed in the order that I usually apply them).

  • MAC Prime+ Prep Fix +

mac_sku_MW5K01_640x600_0
Apply this before the primer. Allow it to dry into the skin and then proceed. You can also use this after you have set your foundation with a setting powder to prevent the make up from looking too dry. This gives your make up a more natural finish. This also works wonders when it comes to eye shadows. If you have a sparkly shadow that you want to have more of a pop to it, spray a little bit of this on your brush, dip it in the eye shadow and apply on the eye.

  • COVER FX Natural Finish Oil Free Foundation

s1487487-main-hero

Foundations are pretty simple. After priming your face, apply a small amount of this to your face, a little really does go a long way with this one. It is oil free therefore it is unlikely to break you out. It is pretty full coverage and makes the skin look flawless. If you have anything you want to hide, a pimple or some freckles…you cannot go wrong using this product.

 

  • Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette

s1654110-main-hero

Use this to highlight under the eyes, under the mouth, and above the eyebrows. This works as a great setting powder for under the eyes!! It is an amazing and creamy consistency which makes contouring and even bronzing a breeze. I do suggest getting the Kat Von D brush which has two ends, one for highlighting and the other for contouring!

 

  • BECCA Becca x Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector® Pressed – Champagne Pop

s1721240-main-hero
FAVORITE HIGHLIGHTER EVER! This may be because I am obsessed with Jaclyn Hill, but it is a beautiful peachy tone perfect for my skin tone which fairly light. Use this to highlight and even as a shadow! Just brush some on the high points of your cheeks and in the corner of your eyes and BOOM, you are good to go!

 

  • Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

s1533439-main-hero
This mascara is a little hard to work with, yes, it’s a bit messy but if you wipe off the excess product off the wand before applying….oooh it’s wonderful. I have pretty long lashes to begin with, but this mascara makes them thick and long and perfect! I never wear any fake lashes because with this mascara you don’t need to!

 

  • Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in shade Lolita

s1552413-main-hero

Best mauve shade for lips. The formula is beautiful! It dries perfectly matte and stays on all day. Compliment worthy! Try it out!

 

 

 

  • Urban Decay Chill Cooling and Hydrating Makeup Setting Spray

s1458199-main-hero
Use this spray after all of your make up is already on! Spray about 4 spritz and let it air dry. Setting spray prevents your make up from sliding around or transferring on to other surfaces. I also have noticed that it makes my make up look more natural!! Who doesn’t love that?? It is quite pricey but it does last a long time. I have been using it for about 3 months (basically on a daily basis) and my bottle is still half full.

 

**As a tip from a person who really loves makeup and the power behind it, I do suggest investing in higher end products. Yes, you could buy from drug stores but the overall quality is lower and the longevity of the products is as well. I started my make up journey with drug store products and at this moment in my life I wish I would have saved that money and spent it on products that may be a tad bit more expensive but better for my skin and just overall better quality.
