Do your self a stable, you sensational señorita, and faucet a little bit MAC Velvet Teddy lipstick on the apples of your cheeks as an impromptu cream blush.
Don’t thoughts me; I’ll wait [waiting]…
It’s one these tried-and-true multitasking methods many MAC addicts (myself included) like doing.
Additionally up there? Utilizing lippies like Heroine and Ruby Woo as eyeshadows and even eyeliner!
Which brings me to this: The brand new MAC in Monochrome assortment, which is offered now. It takes what MAC fiends have already been doing for ages — re-purposing merchandise — and makes it…official.
Going past lipstick
Six cult-classic MAC Lipsticks (Velvet Teddy, See Sheer, Ruby Woo, Heroine, Diva and Sweet Yum Yum) get the props they so richly deserve within the type of their very own units of matching lipgloss, eyeshadow, blush and glitter impressed by their respective colour. (Facet notice: Why’d MAC cease there? They need to have gone all out with fragrance and liner. In spite of everything, Velvet Teddy, Ruby Woo and Sweet Yum Yum have already been launched as fragrances. HMMM!)
Enjoying with end and texture
Like cat eyes and purple lips, monochromatic make-up is a traditional theme that transcends tendencies. I keep in mind having a convo with a make-up artist as soon as who stated that monochromatic seems to be (the place you put on matching eyeshadow, blush and lipstick) are one of many best methods to do elegant make-up, and I agree 100%. I don’t do it practically sufficient, although.
That might be straightforward to rectify with the assistance of those sub-collections.
Refined variations within the colours, together with completely different textures and finishes, retains every of those units from hitting a monotone notice. Like, if I’m going to put on a matte beige lipstick like Velvet Teddy, I have to have no less than a little bit shimmer on my eyes to distinction with my lips, and that’s the case with this assortment. Every of the gadgets riffs on its namesake lipstick colour with out being similar.

Velvet Teddy: Setting the stage for all jewel-toned liners
As somebody who’s all about that impartial life, I’m all concerning the Velvet Teddy sub-collection. The tones go very nicely with two of my favourite MAC liners in Espresso and Teddy, they usually’re the proper backdrop to the intense jewel-toned liners I’ve been sporting recently.
A bejeweled blue, inexperienced or purple child cat eye, and I’m all set!
