MAC Cosmetics is an OG in the world of makeup. Their stores are synonymous to Narnia for people like me, who step into MAC only during sales lol. Every now and then, when I have mum’s card, I splurge a little during regular days too. (Don’t tell her!) MAC does neutrals really well, but for Spring 2019 they’ve taken a step in a bolder direction – introducing Art Library!

The Art Library was expertly curated by MAC artists.

Take your makeup skills to the next level and ignite your inspiration with the chic, heated shades of the FLAME-BOYANT palette.

Bare your soul with the intensely pigmented neutrals of the NUDE MODEL palette, or go avant-garde with the runway-ready range of IT’S DESIGNER palette.

Each palette is carefully coordinated for high-impact, next-level eye artistry – and designed to get you started on your next masterpiece!

A voracious addict of everything beauty, little did I know I would be treading down this path. Started off as a dentist, occasionally dribbling in the arts. Now full time Instagram browser and money spender. They say money doesn't buy happiness. I disagree. They probably didn't know where to shop.
