Here you'll find products that complement a range of skin tones and are suitable for oily, dry, and combination complexions.

Sure, drugstore makeup may be affordable and convenient, but oftentimes those formulas lack the punch of professional-grade cosmetics, which is why we've put together this diverse list of MAC products. Here you'll find a sampling of popular items such as blush, bronzer, foundation, eyeliner, and more. MAC is known and beloved by beauty experts for its smooth formulas that boast both ease of application and strong pigment payoff (which means that small amounts of product go a long way).
Some of these selections come with applicators, but others do not, and using your fingers to dab eyeshadow onto sensitive skin is not recommended. If you want to come away with truly flawless results every time you get dolled up, be sure to invest in a set of high-quality makeup brushes.
The following items have been either removed due to availability issues, or replaced with updated versions: Blot Powder Pressed in Dark, Studio Fix Fluid Foundation, Bronzing Powder in Refined Golden, Fluidline Eye Liner Gel in Blacktrack, Paint Pot in Soft Ochre, and Lip Pencil in Spice. Prep and Prime and Fix has been added to provide users with a quality makeup base/setting option.
Studio Face and Body Foundation This lightweight liquid foundation can compete with the most popular BB creams on the market. Coming in an impressive range of shades, it can be used to disguise sun damage on the chest, arms, legs, and pretty much anywhere else. It has an alluring satin finish, too. macys.com
Little Collection Pigment Create a dramatic look when you're running short on time with this loose pigment. You can use either a dry or wet brush to apply the powder depending on your preference, and you won't have to worry about it caking or streaking over the course of the day. bloomingdales.com
Studio Conceal and Correct Palette This six-shade palette is all you need to hide blemishes, discoloration, under-eye circles, and more. It's also a good option if you want to experiment with highlighting and contouring. It's crafted to withstand eight hours of continuous wear. dillards.com
