Mac Shiny Pretty Things – Holiday 2018

Mac Shiny Pretty Things – Holiday 2018

Je déclare la saison des collections de Noël ouverte ! Le blog va doucement mais surement être envahi de packagings festifs, d’inspirations enchantées et surtout de paillettes ! 

Et comme souvent c’est la collection de Noël de MAC qui ouvre le bal avec la collection Shiny Pretty Things à traduire littéralement comme “jolies choses brillantes”. Des paillettes, du duo chrome, vous l’aurez compris il ne m’a pas fallu bien longtemps pour craquer sur ces Shiny Pretty Things. 

I declare the Holiday Collection season open ! The blog is going to be slowly yet surely invaded by festive packagings, enchanted inspirations and sparkles !

As usual, it’s the MAC holiday collection that is going to open the dance with the Shiny Pretty Things Collection. Sparkles and duo-chrome, you would obviously understand that I had to collect some pieces from this collection. I have a thing for Shiny Pretty Things.

Mac Fix Plus Matte & Highlighter – The Perfect Aide to Flawless Makeup

Mac Fix Plus Matte & Highlighter – The Perfect Aide to Flawless Makeup

(English Below)

La Brume Fix + de Mac est un essentiel de la trousse beauté de n’importe quelle Make-up Addict. Je vous en avais déjà parlé dans mon article sur mes essentiels d’un maquillage d’été réussi et je vous en parle assez régulièrement car je l’utilise au quotidien. Cette brume infusée d’eau de concombre, de camélia, de caféine hydrate, rafraîchit et fixe le maquillage mais elle a aussi plus d’un tour dans son sac! Je l’utilise pour intensifier mes fards à paupières, pour patiner mon teint et en brume quand j’ai besoin d’un coup de frais. Il en existe même des parfumées à la rose, la lavande, la noix de coco… Bref, un essentiel je vous dis! 

The Mac Fix + Mist is an essential in any makeup addict’ makeup bag. I already shared my love for this product in my summer makeup essentials post and I also talk about it rather regularly because I use it daily. This mist is infused with cucumber water, camellia and caffeine which not only helps to hydrate, refresh and fix the makeup but it is also full of secrets! I use it to intensify my eyeshadows, to help with patchiness and to refresh myself when the heat is just too much. It also comes in fragrances such as coconut, lavender, rose… As I said, it’s an essential!

Mac Fix + Matte & Highlight

La bonne nouvelle c’est que la gamme Fix + s’élargit avec une version “Highlighter” déclinée en deux teintes : Gold Lite & Pink Lite et une version “Matte”. Et c’est évidemment de ces deux nouveautés dont je souhaite vous parler aujourd’hui avec au programme mon avis, comme d’habitude mais surtout des astuces d’une maquilleuse professionnelle MAC qui ont fait évoluer ma routine maquillage du teint!

The good news is that the Fix + Range now welcomes “Highlighter” versions available in two shades : Gold Lite and Pink Lite and also a “Matte” version. Of course it is about these latter two new releases that I want to talk about today. On the menu, of course my thoughts on the products but also some makeup tips all the way from a MAC professional makeup artist that completely changed my makeup routine!

All about that base (’bout that BB base)

All about that base (’bout that BB base)

The base. For me it is the most important part of makeup. With a perfect base you can only wear mascara and a lippie and you will look fabulous. (Of course you will look gorgeous on a no makeup day too 😉) Anyways, a perfect base will help you feel confident and yourself but better (at least this is how I feel). But the perfect base routine is very hard to find. It depends on your skin type and your will but also on the quality of the products you use. But we are makeup addicts (Junkie, hoarder) and we LOVE testing products. Hunting for the perfect formulation, perfect result, perfect finish and all this for more than 3 hours. Because we are makeup junkie but we also have a life, a job, activities and we can’t just stay home looking at our perfect base like “oh raining today, not going out will ruin my makeup “😂 Makeup needs to be LIFE-Proof!!

My name is Lyna and I am a makeup junkie. But I am also a crazy perfectionist. And if you combine both in a beauty shaker you will get a special cocktail of a never ending hunt, hope and disbelief (topped with breakouts).
