Spotlight On: M.A.C’s Signature Bold Lipsticks

Update your beauty line-up with inspiration from M.A.C‘s cult-favourite lip colours.

If there’s one make-up look that exemplifies M.A.C, it’s other-worldly skin teamed with a daring lip. So as the days get warmer and the anticipation of sun-soaked celebrations builds, a radiant complexion and fresh take on bright lipstick is the perfect spring beauty update.

This is how to pair luminous, bronzed skin with M.A.C’s latest launch – the Powder Kiss Velvet Blur Slim Stick – and reimagine some of the brand’s most iconic lip shades for spring. 

1. Prep your skin

Follow the pro tips of make-up artists across the globe and prep your skin for make-up. M.A.C’s multitasking formula, the Studio Radiance Moisturizing + Illuminating Silky Primer, is a lightweight lotion that hydrates like skincare, softens textural imperfections like a primer and lays down a pearly glow like an illuminator. So you enhance your natural glow without a complicated routine. 

 2. Add foundation

Let your skin shine with M.A.C’s ultra-light Studio Radiance Face and Body Radiant Sheer Foundation. Luminous but buildable, this lightweight formula is your skin but better. So emulate the natural glow seen backstage at fashion week by diffusing a couple of drops of foundation into skin on warm spring days.  

3. Up your glow

For a wash of natural radiance, reach for M.A.C’s Hyper Real Glow Palette.  In three creamy, blendable shades, this is sun-kissed skin at your fingertips. Just sweep over the high points of your face – the cheekbones, nose, Cupid’s bow and eyelids – for an effortless summer sheen.

4. Brighten your smile

The hero of the look is brilliant lips. And for an easy swipe of colour with maximum impact, reach for M.A.C’s latest launch, the Powder Kiss Velvet Blur Slim Stick. 

An homage to M.A.C’s brightest and beloved red lips – including Lady Danger and Ruby Woo – the new Slim Sticks are made for everyday wear. A single swipe delivers just as much colour as their iconic counterparts, but with a hydrating and soft-velvet finish that’s perfect for spring.

5. Set and refresh

To lock in your make-up for the day or rehydrate your skin after hours, opt for M.A.C’s Fix+ Stay Over. With a few spritzes, this cucumber, green tea and chamomile setting spray hydrates skin and maintains the appearance of make-up for 16 hours. So you can top up your glow whether you pull the handy-sized mist out of your beach bag, desk drawer or clutch.
