MAC Heavenly Creature: Out of This World

Minerals of this earth and hues far beyond it serve as the inspiration for MAC’s latest collection (from shopping to sailors, their ability to switch gears at the drop of a micro-season always keeps me on my toes).

Intense name…intense colors! If you’re looking for an alternative to MAC, Illamasqua is amazing for super intense pigments. Their latest collection, Human Fundamentalism, is choke-full of the brights and metallics that have made them a go-to for the adventurous, but it also has some neutral toned (still highly pigmented though) eye shades for those looking […]
