    MAC Spring Master Class-- what to expect?

    I have only 1 Master Class being offered in my area, and it's the Bridal Makeup class. I'm interested in booking the class, but I want to know what to expect. Are you just watching the MUA do a few looks? Does my $25 class fee include anything? Do I need to bring anything?

    How does Rebel l/s look on you?

    I'm NC25, and I wore Rebel yesterday for the first time. I couldn't wait to try it -seeing how dark, pretty, and plummy it looked in the tube. I applied 2 coats and was disappointed to find that it looked like a dark fuchsia on my lips, nothing like that dark berry color I've seen on other...

    Please help! Bumps all over my face...are these clogged pores? (Pics)

    These bumps are all over my cheeks. It looks so bad and I don't know what to do to even begin combating it. I started using Stridex pads (in the red box) and it seems like I've gotten more bumps since using it. I use a cleansing oil to remove my makeup and then cleanse with Cerave.

    Why do you love MAC products?

    We are all here on spektra because we love MAC but what are everyone's reasons for loving this brand? Is it the collections, the colors, the quality? Personally I love MAC because the foundations are the only ones that stay true to color and don't oxidize on my NC25 skin. I've tried so many...

    There are so many pages on Instagram for various clothing "boutiques". I've noticed many of the pages are selling the same current, trendy items...the model is the exact same blonde-with-dark-eyebrows model against a white background.

    I don't know if I am not using enough foundation or if I am over-buffing my foundation to the point that it is sheer....but I don't find that my foundation has that full coverage flawless look. I apply a squirt of Studio Sculpt to my hand and dab my MAC 187 stippling brush into it and dab it...
