Sunkissed in 5 Min feat. MAC Give me Sun! Skinfinish

Beauty, Makeup

Happy Friday, ladies!

I recently made my, handsdown, BEST MAC purchase ever. I first heard of MAC Give Me Sun! Skinfinish from Kathleenlight’s video. I thought then…’ahhh this probably only works on fair skin’ But when I tried some on at the MAC counter, I was astonished. This baby is really made for babes of EVERY skin tone. Even though this is marketed as a skinfinisher, Kathleenlights uses it as a blush and bronzer 2-1, which is how I like to use mine too. However, if I were to want something heavier for date night, I would put just a pop of pink blush on my apples of my cheeks.

Ok, so I know Give Me Sun! looks super light for deeper skin tones, but I promise it really does work even if you’re tan. Applying more than 1 layer would help to intensify its bronzer effect. I like to pair it with Tarte’s 12-Hour Amazonian Clay Blush in the shade Classic as it introduces some pink to your face which completes the ‘sunkissed’ look.

In the picture directly above, I have some concealer, loose powder and one layer of MAC Give Me Sun! on my face. Yes, just 3 products. (excluding my eyeliner and mascara) I don’t even have any lipstick on yet. I think this 3 face product look is something that can be worn everyday and just looks so very radiant and healthy. So I applied one layer of Give Me Sun! on my cheekbones and forehead – basically the areas where the sun would hit your face. I like especially that it is not a flat dark brown colour but has a peachy undertone which makes it possible to be worn without a blusher.

After applying some pink blush to the apples of my cheeks and smacking on some Velvet Teddy on my lips, this is the finished look! So easy and I love love love the sunkissed effect this combination gives! The only issue I have with this product is that it does not have fantastic lasting power which means that I like to touch up after a few hours – this is not difficult to do since its package comes with an in-built mirror, super convenient!

MAC Give Me Sun! has officially become my daily makeup staple. I know very very few Singaporean/ Asian girls who apply such bronzers because majority of them prefer super fair skin tones, but personally, I just adore the look of nicely sunkissed skin. Thoughts?

P.S. If you’re a few shades darker than me in skintone, you will love MAC Sun Power Skinfinish which will give you the same effect as it is a darker version of Give Me Sun!
