Get the look: Eid eyes by MAC Cosmetics

There’s something so special about doing your makeup before a celebration. No matter the occasion, applying that glitter eyeshadow and extra swipe of highlighter makes a world of difference. Eid al-Fitr is no exception to the rule and the team at M.A.C Cosmetics have pulled together the perfect look for this year’s festivities.

All about that base

Begin by prepping the skin using a combination of Lightful C Marine Bright Formula Softening Lotion Spray, Prep + Prime Fix +, Oil Control Lotion and plenty of Strobe Cream in Goldlite.

Strong foundations

Creating the perfect base is all about the perfect foundation. Luckily, we’ve got Studio Fix Fluid on our side and with the addition of Studio Finish Concealer you’ll be left with a natural, dewy finish. Dust over some Translucent Powder under the eyes and t-zone before adding Studio Fix Powder in the remaining areas.

Take it to a new level with Matte Bronze and the famous Mineralize Blush in ‘Like Me Love Me’. Add a pop of shine to the top of your cheeks with Extra Dimension Skinfinish Highlighter in Whisper of Gilt.

Eyes by numbers
