Surf’s Up At M.A.C-------
The official start of summer may be June 21, but this weekend marks its symbolic beginning. Since New York’s weather has proven decidedly meh recently, the arrival of Memorial Day means a lot of us, myself included, are headed for balmier pastures (I’ll be saying “bienvenido a Miami” in T-minus two days). To properly prepare for the trip, I’ve readied my sun protection trifecta—SPF 60 broad-spectrum block, wide-brimmed hat, and muumuu—painted my nails, depilated my soon-to-be-exposed body, and filled my makeup bag with a disproportionate amount of M.A.C’s Surf Baby collection. The line is chockfull of golden pigments and bronzers, ultramarine and yellow shadows, and peachy glosses and blushes, but I’m particularly excited about the Powerpoint eye pencils (gilded white for the inner corners and a golden teal blue to smudge across the lash lines), the punchy coral-hued Hibiscus lipstick, and both nail lacquers—Hangin’ Loose’s dusty pink for fingers and the mellow aqua Ocean Dip for toes. I may not be hanging ten anytime soon, but I do plan on looking pretty damn good from the beachfront lounge chair I’ll be parked in.
