MAC Cream Colour Base

As my thirtieth rolls ever closer I am becoming increasingly obsessed with make up that looks fresh and fun (e.g. young). Clear skin, colour pop lips, healthy cheeks and sparkling eyes. SO far, my greatest ally in this quest has been MAC’s Colour Cream Base in Pearl.


It’s a gorgeous, gorgeous product. Originally presented to me as a highlighter, I’ve also found it makes a wonderful cream shadow on its own a a great base. For a super fresh look, swipe it on alone, to make it last a little longer, add MAC shadow in Retrospeck to set it and for a beautiful shimmer smokey eye, add Satin Taupe over the Retrospeck, line your eyes with a dark chocolate brown pencil (I like Urban Decay 24/7 pencil in Bourbon) and smudge a black pencil into the inner and outer lashline (Benefit Bad Gal Waterproof is my fave). To really add drama, I whack some Club into the mix and smoke the shit out of it all. Amaze. The pearl base adds depth and shimmer to the whole shebang and also helps hold it all night long.

Just don’t get it in your crows feet. Not that I have any crows feet.

  1. I like the sound of this look 🙂 You know the cool think about pearl is that it works on most skin tones. I'm Asian and on my skin it adds a really nice silvery shimmer without the harshness of a true silver- if that makes sense!! Anyway am gonna try this look out and don't you worry about the big 3.0. girl!! Its gonna be bigger, better and even more glamorous than your 20's xoxoxoSeema
