Kinda new to MAC

Hi everyone. I'm a long-time customer of high-end makeup brands, but for some reason I haven't really been into MAC until recently. I do have a small collection, but I would definitely like to expand it.

Here's what I have so far:
  • Select Cover-Up in NC15
  • Studio Fix Powder in NW15
  • Paint in Mauvism
  • Fluidline in Macroviolet
  • Lipstick in MAC Red
  • Lipglass in Malibu Barbie and Lure-X
  • Lustreglass in Angel Wing
  • Lipgelee in Lu-Be-Lu
  • Blending Brush #217
I have very fair skin, dark brown hair with blonde highlights, and green eyes.

I would really like some recommendations for pretty much everything: lipsticks, lipglasses, lip pencils, eyeshadows, shadesticks, paints, pigments, eyeliners, powder blush, and brushes. I would like some very neutral colors that I could use for everyday, as well as bright colors for when I want to have a little fun.

Any help would be appreciated so much. Thanks.

l/l really depends on what color your lips are normally and what your'e wearing that day. my staples are: Dervish, Mahogany, Stone, Whirl, Half-Red

i don't use shadesticks or paints, so i can't really help there, but Bare Canvas is the standard neutral base paint that ppl rec on here.

pigments:
Golden Olive
Goldenaire (you can find it being sold on here often, it'd be great w/your green eyes)
Vanilla (STAPLE)
Violet

You have a great start to your collection. If you have oily skin, at all, you need Blot Powder. I love the liquid foundations from Mac. Select SPF15 is a nice coverage, never looks heavy, I can layer some Studio Fix Powder over it if I want more coverage. I go through phases of using the Prep & Prime Eyes, Paints, Shadesticks & Fluidlines as bases. The Fluidlines make really nice cream eyeshadow or base. Graphic Brown Fluidline (if you can find one) is great as liner or as a shadow. Bare Canvas Paint, if you want a nice basic, no shimmer base, is essential. Mascara X is my favorite mascara, but I really like Fibre Rich for more volume. Studio Finish Concealer for areas that need a bit more coverage is nice. I use the #252, 217, 239 & 266 eye brushes dailey. The #109 & 187 brushes for my face. If you need any skincare, the Cremewash & Microfine Refinisher are both excellant. Fast Response For Eyes makes Shadesticks glide on really easily & is great, on a QTip to clean up mistakes w/o irritating your face. I could go on forever about eyeshadows & blushes, because I love them all, so you just need to go & pick out some fun ones!
