Mac Starter Kit

Hello! I know there are probably absolutely loads of Mac Starter Kit videos and posts out there, but I thought I would make my own and hopefully some of you will enjoy reading this post and watching my video.

When I first started going to Mac, I never knew which products were good or worth the money as there are so many to chose from! I thought a post/video like this will be useful for everyone because if you are new in makeup then it will hopefully help you decide what to try from Mac, and if you aren't new in makeup then you can just see what I would recommend!


I haven't chosen too many products as I know Mac can be fairly expensive.

I do go into a lot more detail about each product in the video so if you would like to hear why I like them and just generally lots more information then you can watch that here! This blog post is mainly just so you can see lots of swatches and close up photos of each product!


Here are all of the swatches!


Left to right:

Blush in Well Dressed
Studio Sculpt Foundation in NW15,
Tinted Lip Conditioner in Petting Pink


Top - Eye Shadow in Satin Taupe
Bottom - Eye Shadow in Naked Lunch


Top - Eye Kohl in Smolder
Left - Eye Shadow in Satin Taupe
Right - Eye Shadow in Naked Lunch



I hope you have enjoyed this post and video! I would love it if you subscribed to my Youtube channel if you would like to and if you do then it means you wont miss a video, even if I don't write a post about it!

What are your favourite Mac products? Do you have any recommendations for me?

  13. Great post for a MAC novice. I wish I had this kind of insight a few years ago because sometimes the counter is a little daunting :)

  27. I agree with a lot of your recs, especially the MSF Natural! I love your eyeshadow suggestions, and I've been dying to try the Studio Sculpt foundation, as I had a lot of luck with the sculpt concealer. I've been wracking my brain trying to come up with a lipstick suggestion, but colors are just so subjective that I think you were right not to include one. Nice collection, and beautiful blog! xx
