— also known as “my gateway MAC collection.” I remember that Pearl Blossom was one of the pieces I bought in my little MAC Barbie haul (this was back in 2007), and even though it’s a re-promote in the new MAC Is Beauty collection, I still get fired up about it. Because it’s just so versatile. There are so many things you can do with MAC’s Beauty Powders (which are basically like the, from before the time there were Hourglass Ambient Powders), especially light pink Pearl Blossom, which also has silvery pearl. You can wear it as a blush, or a highlighter, or if you have lighter, cool-toned skin, lightly dusted all over your face as a brightening powder. I love Pearl Blossom’s finish because it isn’t overly frosty. I use it mostly as a highlighter, targeting the soft, subtle iridescent sheen on the tops of my cheekbones, down the bridge of my nose, in the inner corners of my eyes, and above and just below the arch in my brows.

MAC Beauty Powder in Pearl Blossom For reference, I’m an NC42 in MAC I’m all about highlighting, but I’m not big into contouring, which is the other half of the sculpting equation. The contour is usually when you use deeper colors to simulate shadows and make certain areas appear to recede into the background. Mac compatible usb bluetooth adapter. Highlighting does the opposite, where you focus attention on certain areas. The soft powder formula lasts all day long on my combination skin. I just dust it on in the mornings after foundation, bronzer, blush — the whole shebang — to add that subtle glow. I’m Karen, your friendly neighborhood beauty addict, and I’m a Bay Area girl who hoards brown eyeshadow and covets coral lipstick.
Every morning, I wake up and say, “I’m going to do something other than a smoky eye today.” ThenI end up doing a smoky eye anyway (most days). When I’m not putting on makeup, taking pictures of makeup or writing about makeup, you’ll find me hanging out with my hubby (“El Hub”), my almost-three-year-old daughter (Connor Claire) and my kitty supermodel cat (Tabs).
