mac fix

My fix it fic for Dennis’ Double Life.  I feel like we were robbed of a little moment of tenderness between Mac and Dennis ‘big feelings’ Reynolds so here’s a little something I would have liked to have seen in the finale.

Taking place between Dennis’ deciding to leave and the gang blowing up the SUV. Mac and Dennis have a brief tender exchange.

I would love to know what you think of it!

dupes/alternatives masterpost ✨

Hey loves, this masterpost was partially requested and I’m so excited.  I recommend to do your research before buying the dupe, some of the dupes are better than others. Some brands are repeated. Here is a dupe masterpost for MAC lipsticks. Here is a dupe masterpost for liquid lipsticks. Here is a spreadsheet of Coastal Scents eyeshadows to MAC eyeshadow dupes. Most of these dupes I found online so I do not take credit for any of those but some I researched myself. This is under read more because this list is very long. :) If you have any more dupes or questions, feel free to send them in.

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF CONTOUR ALEXA GOD DAMMIT WHY IS EYELINER NECESSARY WHY DO EYEBROWS NEED TO BE FILLED WHY SO MANY LAYERS OF FACE COLOURED CREAM WHAT IS LIP LINER AND WHY IS IT NECESSARY DO PEOPLE CONTOUR THEIR EARS WHY DO PEOPLE ONSESS OVER THE PERFECT RED LIP ABD SMOKY EYE AND WHY PRAY TELL DO VEINS LOOK GREEN

Prepare yourself, this is long.

1.) Contour: To accentuate your features. You can place a brown color that is a few shades darker than your natural skintone in the hollows of your cheeks, your temples, above your forehead to make your face seem smaller, various places on your nose depending on the look you want - although my nose is impossible to contour I’ve been trying for a year - , the crease of your eyelids (thats just eyeshadow dont worry), and your jawline. 

Tips: If you're just starting to wear makeup and want to contour then use a shade that isn’t too dark. It’ll be easier to blend into to your skin. Personally, I don’t use bronzers like a lot of people do (bronzers make you tan) to contour because I don’t like the look. I actually use a gray toned brown, which will make some people shriek but I feel like it looks like more of a natural shadow.

What Do I Use:
I use an LA COLORS Brow Palette from ROSS $7???(we’re on a budget okay)

2.) Eyeliner: Eyeliner is not necessary. Makeup is not necessary. It’s just hella fun. The usual way to do eyeliner is to make your eyes pop. Like a thin line on the top of your lids, close to your lashline, or tight lining your eyes. (tight lining in putting eyeliner on your lash line. like that thing in movies where they make a weird face and put stuff right on their upper and/or lower lash line.)

Tips: If you have a paler complexion, use brown for a natural look or black for a more prominent look. For deeper skintones, I would recommend dark browns and blacks. If ya feelin’ risky, pop some color on your waterline. I use pink because I have greenish eyes and it makes then more…..there.

What Do I Use?:
Essence Super Fine Felt Tip Liner $3 (waterproof formula is bomb af but use powder on oily lids before applying or it will bleed, if you do that it stays all damn day.)

3.) Eyebrows: The trend is to have fuller eyebrows. While I already have full brows, they just kind of…. go everywhere. So I give them a shape. Sometimes it’s a dark and dramatic arch, or sometimes it’s a soft straight brow. Depends on the natural shape of your brows and how you like them.

Tips: Unless you dye your hair black, don’t use black for your brows. I dye my hair the blackest black I can find and I still use a dark gray. For beginners, try a pencil or brow gel first. Brow gels are light mascaras but for your brows. They hold the shape in place, give the hairs color, and/or make ya eyebrows look fuller.

What Do I Use?:
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz (pencil) in Granite $21
NYX Pomade in Black $7

4.) Face-Colored-Cream aka Foundation: This is used to even out your skintone. It comes in several forms: Liquid, Cream (thicker form of liquid, often gives fuller coverage), and Powder. There is also a thing called concealer, which is more pigmented foundation that you can use on places your foundation doesn’t cover. If you wear foundation, then consider one for your skin type. Matte helps oily skin and luminous helps dry skin.

Tips: Have someone else match your foundation/concealer you know has experience with makeup and can help you get the perfect match. I go with friends or a beauty store will always have someone to help you. I haven’t done this in particular, but if you bring foundations you already have or samples to someone working to counter at a beauty store, they will probably help match you. Hopefully.

What Do I Use?:
MAC Studio Fix in NC15 $27 (Matte but not matte enough for this oil slick)
Maybelline Dream Cushion in Porcelain $13 (Luminous but not dewy)
Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless in Porcelain $8 (Matte and actually helps my skin)
Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer in Light Pale $6
NYX HD Studio Photogenic in 4.5 $7
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder $5
Cody Airspun in Translucent $5 

I HAVE OILY SKIN BTW SO THOSE ARE GOOD FOR OILY SKIN!!!!

4.) Lip Liner: Honestly, lip liner just helps map out the shape of your lips so it’s easier to fill them in with lipstick. I use it to slightly overdraw my lips for a fuller affect.

Tips: You don’t have to use this. Just find a shade that matches your lipstick and go. I sometimes use lip liner over my entire lips and put a balm over it. Acts like a stain.

What Do I Use?:
Loreal Infalliable line of Lip Liners $3
NYX Suede Lip Liners $5

5.) Ear Contouring: Is a thing that practically no one does cause it’s literally just concealing the redness in your ears. No clue why they called it contouring. I will not leave a link for this because I think it’s stupid.

6.) A red lip and smokey eye are classics in the beauty community so of course, everyone wants to be good at them. I actually hate red on me so I can’t help you there. Also, I don’t do natural smokey eyes.

Tips: Blend. If you think you’re done, you’re wrong. Keep blending.

7.) Undertones: A good way to understand your skin’s undertones is to look at your wrist and see if your veins are blue, green, or in between. Blue means cool toned, Green means warm toned, in between mean neutral. Having a foundation that matches your undertone really helps it blend into your skin and appear natural and flawless. That method is not always accurate btw, so it’s a good idea to have a professional or ya local trash for beauty help you out.
