IMO, the best ones are still the sculpt and shape powders. "Sculpt" might be the best shade for you (maybe Bone Beige during the winter). I like to add some "Shadowy" for a more dramatic look in the evening. If you don't want to order from the Pro store, you might want to try Harmony, though it can be a touch too pink on NC skin.
Re highlighter: it really depends what blush you use. I use different highlighters for different blushes. Today I use "Soft Focus" (from the shape powder) mixed with Elude as highlighter, Immortal Flower as a blush, and a mix of Shadester mixed with Bone Beige (from the sculpt powders). To add some warmth, I use Gold-Go-Lightlightly Careblend topped with Flower Fantasy Pearlmatte for sheen. It's a lovely, very natural combination - and perfect for this sunny day on the East Coast.
thank you so much!
That does indeed sound like a lovely combination and it's so nice to get some product recommendations, I have no MAC store nearby so I order from mac directly for nearly all my products which is fine but it means I also miss out on a lot of mac tips and advice.
I haven't ever looked at the sculpt and shape powders so will definitely give them a try.
With highlight do you pair colours, so a more pink highlight tone with a pinker blush?
Still on hold
