A couple of months back, I had the opportunity to visit the new Scott Miller expansion at their Pittsford Salon and got a complimentary make over at the MAC Cosmetics bar. If you haven't been into the new salon-be prepared! As in-bring your wallet because you will want EVERYTHING! I've always been a fan of MAC Cosmetics. I have a ton of their eye shadows and lip sticks, so I couldn't wait to have a full make over with all of their products! My MUA, Jerica, was fantastic. She started with the mineralize foundation and I loved the smooth, even coverage it gave me without looking cakey. She brushed on some finishing powder which ended up in my "must have" pile. I also bought a highlighting shadow brush. MAC make up brushes are seriously my favorite! I have about 5 #217s. It is the perfect shadow brush. We decided on a neutral eye with a bright red lip for my special date night with my 6 year old. I have to admit, if I could, I would have bought every shadow she used. I find with a lot of eye shadows, you have to rub the powder so hard to get it on to the brush. MAC shadows are so easy to apply and a little bit goes a long way. The matte shadows give the nicest coverage. I never would have thought brown would have looked good on my lids, but I was pleasantly surprised. Jerica also taught me how to do a small wing tip! I was psyched because I love the look but never thought with my eye shape, I could do it. Throughout the whole process, she taught me how to re-create the look. One of the most important aspects of creating make up looks from a MAC make up artist is that they teach you along the way so you don't leave not knowing how to pull it off yourself! We finished with a classic red lip and it was the perfect compliment to my eyes.
Overall, I loved the entire look and wish I could have walked out with ALL of it! I can't wait to go back and try something totally different, like a smokey eye and nude lip. If you are local, you have to stop in from the 4th-6th for their once a year sale!! Run and stock up on MAC and take a look at all of the other great products they have in their new space!!
