MAC Makeup for Dry Skin
My first forays into makeup were as a teenager with a Collection 2000 beige concealer, Rimmel Coffee Shimmer lipstick and Carroll shimmery blue eyeshadow. Yes. I did look as amazing as you are imagining. It wasn't until I found MAC that I discovered there were products actually made with brown skin in mind and while I have long thrown away that first NC45 concealer (was every MAC artist trained to give every Indian girl NC45?), I am still grateful.
I do think that MAC has been over taken by newer brands coming out with better shades of base products with a wider range of undertones. I myself still encounter shade problems with them but I continue to be appreciative because MAC make a corrector, concealer, foundation and powder suitable for my very dry skin. Here is a run down of my favourite MAC products to create a base with shade and application tips.
