Here are some quick tips and thoughts on the new PRO Beauty Powders, Reflects Glitters, and Nudes & Shapers rom one of Temptalia’s favorite senior regional artists, Louise Zizzo! I e-mailed her for some advice on how to make my new PRO additions really work for me, and I thought I’d share what I learned!  (Don’t you love her?  I do!)

Where to use the glitters? “Because they are sold at pro, ideally they are amazing for body and face work, and can be applied easily by using a little bit of lip conditioner and then tap on the glitter with a brush. Lots of fun can be had especially with Halloween coming up.”

Nudes and Shapers? She recommended I try this combo (can’t wait to try it!): “Highlight brow bone and cheek bone with Emphasize, Contour cheeks and eyes with Bone Beige; Deepen eye crease with Definitive, add Warm light to apple of cheeks; Use Shadowy to line your eyes; Absolutely gorgeous and don’t forget lots of mascara!”

Where to use the beauty powders? “The Beauty powders can be used anywhere; Paperwhite is my fave for highlighting on cheek bones for some extra dazzle.”

How to use the beauty powders? “My trick for cheeks is to use any blush and mix with the beauty powders and then apply. Just dip in the beauty powder and then in your blush, it looks fabulous, I like to use Micro Pink or Drizzle gold for this. These can also be used on the eyes, a little tap in the center of the eye lid can spruce up you look from day to night.”

P.S. – If you haven’t been able to purchase these, you can always call up your nearest PRO store (even if that’s eight hours away!) and place a phone order. Shipping is only $7, which isn’t bad at all. However, if you can wait, later on this year, you will find that MAC will launch a few beauty powders from the PRO line plus new ones to consumers in MAC of Beauty. There will also be Nudes and Shapers coming in the form of Sculpting duos! I’ve heard rumors that a few of the reflects glitters will also be making an appearance!

    is there any way to purchase pro products if you are not a PRO member? other than making friends with someone who is?

    • You can purchase PRO products without being a PRO member. You can make in-person purchases at PRO stores, or you can call the PRO store nearest you and have them ship you products (phone order).
