Ten of the 11 pieces from the new RiRi Hearts MAC holiday Collection, coming December 2013
The new 11-piece limited edition collection is loaded with products ideal for going from the office to your after-work parties.
You can even employ these quick and easy party prep tricks from your desk. just make sure your office crush isn’t lurking…because it’s kind of strange when someone you like hangs around to view you line your water lines.
Trust me on this.
1. swap that daytime nude lipstick for a bright, bold shade.
Lipsticks from the left: pleasure Bomb (a matte fuchsia with a Matte finish), RiRi Woo (a matte amazing red with a retro Matte finish), and Badgal RiRi (a taupe-y nude with a Matte finish); $16.50 us and $20 CAN each
Nude lipsticks like taupe-y nude bad Gal RiRi keep you looking polished and professional throughout the day, even when you’re this close to beating the crap out of that prehistoric copy device (why is that thing always broken!?).

But when quittin’ time rolls around, swap that nude lippie for a brighter shade, like amazing red RiRi Woo or fuchshia pleasure Bomb.
Bom! just like that, you’re one big step closer to a party-ready look.

A bright lip pumps up the jam but takes very little effort. Plus, this one’s long-wearing matte finish photographs very well, and it’ll last through dinner and drinks, so you won’t even have to touch-up throughout the evening.

2. forget the force, Luke. embrace the shimmer!
Veluxe Pearlfushion shadow in 2X dare ($44 us and $52.50 CAN)
As for your eyes, you won’t need hours (or years of experience) to get them party-perfect. A easy wash of shimmery eyeshadow all over your lids, followed by one or two coats of mascara, does the job in less than five minutes.
If you like yourself in cooler color temps and tones, try the cooler shades from RiRi’s Veluxe Pearlfushion shadow in 2X Dare. Gals (and guys, of course) with warmer skin tones, try the warmer-toned Phresh Out instead.
Both palettes of shimmery, high-shine eyeshadow have creamy textures that blend like the proverbial butter.

3. All that glitters is good!
Superslick Eye Liners in Cockiness (a shimmery rosy gold) on the left and Pisces Persuasion (a shimmery white frost) on the best ($20.50 us and $25 CAN)
No time for eyeshadow? Ikke noe problem. get a glittery liner like the Superslick Eye Liners in shimmery white Pisces Persuasion and shimmery rose gold Cockiness, and rapidly run a thin line along your upper lash lines.

With both of these liners, thanks to their fine flecks of glitter, you get a glimmer of sparkle without looking like you’re headed to da club. Of course, if you want to look like you’re headed to da club, all you have to do is make your lines thicker and much more dramatic.
And because the Superslicks wear well and last long, you can do the robot till dawn without them disappearing.

4. Who’s down for a two-step…smokey eye?
Easiest smokey eye evah!
If you feel like going smokey with your eyes, try this quick two-step…
Smudge your favorite creamy black or brown liner on your lids, feather out the edges with a brush (or finger), pat a shimmery eyeshadow on top, and blend out the edges with your favorite blending brush.
And if you want much more drama and depth, bravo! also line your water lines.

5. forget sexy! Bring the bronzer back.
Bronzing Powder in Love, Rihanna, a soft golden brown with gold pearl. The “R” is an overspray, unfortunately, but it doesgå ned ganske dypt i pannen – selv om ikke helt til bunnen ($ 30 US og $ 35 kan)
Spar tid ved å lage din Bronzer Multitask!
Visst, du kan bruke den til å legge varme over og konturer kinnene dine, men du kan også bruke den til å definere øynene dine.

For eksempel, etter at jeg er ferdig med to-trinns smokey-øyet ovenfor, lastet jeg en Mac 217 med Riri bronsepulver i kjærlighet Rihanna og feide det i min krone for å myke kantene på de smokey skyggene og gi ekstra dimensjon til øynene mine.
Jeg feide kjærlighet, rihanna bronsepulver på kinnene mine, over pannen, nedover sidene av nesen min, i øynene mine og langs kjeven min for å konturere og legge til total varme til huden min (det er den nye $ 48 Riri Hearts Mac Makeup Bag i min hånd, forresten, som er $ 40 US og $ 48 CAN)
Og der går vi! Fem enkle, breezy måter å gå fra kontoret til en ferie arbeidsgruppe med Riri Hearts Mac Holiday Collection, som kommer i desember til alle Mac-steder i Nord-Amerika og Maccosmetics.com (også i desember til internasjonale lokaliteter, med unntak av Kina).
