The Beginner’s Guide to MAC Makeup, According to a MAC Pro Artist


The Beginner’s Guide to MAC Makeup, According to a MAC Pro Artist

MAC is undoubtedly in the upper echelon of must-try brands for lipsticks. From the classic red with a Rihanna co-sign to newer, limited-edition colors from the Viva Glam family, it’s basically impossible to get bored because the gamut never ends. But anyone who has ventured past the lip section knows that the best MAC products don’t begin and end there. When you want to cover your face in the best of the best, you’ve got options and don’t have to venture outside of the brand for them.

Now, I could easily throw a list of products together and tell you that they’re the best thing since Beyoncé’s LEMONADE. But the truth is I have yet to try a considerable amount of MAC classics and feel confident about recommending them. So instead, I figured the best person to help would be someone who not knows her way around a MAC store, but actually swears by the products and can speak to their versatility. Tika Margarita fit just the bill and most recently convinced me that the newest range of nude lipsticks should definitely be on my radar.
