3 essential MAC lipsticks to slay any occasion



Lipstick was for me, like a lot of girls, the first item that found its way to my make-up bag. I remember buying my first MAC lipstick with my mum, in one of their store on the Champs-Elysées in Paris. It was a matte, pastel pink (Pink Plaid) and kind of the perfect shade for a 15-year-old. 

Today, I can bring back my lipstick collection to three essential shades that I could survive with and still slay any occasion (although I have a bunch of varieties on them!). So if you're looking for the three MAC shades that I recommend you to buy, read on!


WHIRL - AN EVERYDAY TAUPE
For me, brownish nudes and taupe are my most worn lipstick shades. It's my go-to for an everyday look because it warms up my face and spices up a rather casual outfit without making it too much. Whirl is a comfortable matte shade that I like to combine with the Spice lip liner to define it a bit more or just wear on its own. 

RUBY WOO - A POWERFUL MATTE RED
Every girl needs a good red lipstick. I used to wear red a lot, but nowadays I tend to opt for it on rather special occasions and to go out-out. A lot of people seem to be afraid to wear red lipstick and in my opinion that's a really sad thing because it can make you feel so strong and feminine and it makes you look awesome as well. Ruby Woo is my all-time favourite MAC red because it's a very blue-ish one (which means it makes your teeth look extra white) and it's SUPER matte, which may be less comfortable at times but is really solid on your lips and looks very 50s. 



VEGAS VOLT - A JOYFUL SUMMER SHADE
Although you'll see me go for nude and red in Summer a lot as well, I try to add in a brighter shade whenever the sun is out and I feel like I could use a bit more colour. Vegas Volt is my favourite for this because the coral pink look amazing on tanned skin and makes any simple Summer outfit a lot more joyful. The Amplified finish is something I have to get used to a little more sometimes, but to be honest I like something creamy like this more in Summer than a dry, matte one.

Hurry to your nearby MAC store or buy online this week to get yourself a 20% off on two lipsticks!
