On a recent trip to MAC cosmetics I purchased some goodies which I can’t wait to try out.
1.MINERALISE SKINFINISH HIGHLIGHTER:
Described as a luxurious velvet-soft powder with high-frost metallic finish. This powder is a pressed powder highlighter and comes in 5 different shades. I got the Gold Deposit shade. I actually wanted the Iridescent powder but its been discontinued. Apparently Mac has discontinued many lines this past year.
2.PRO LONGWEAR CONCEALER:NW40,
I will use this to highlight
3.STUDIO FIX FOUNDATION:NW44
I wanted to try a matte foundation for my combination skin. I know it can be quite heavy if too much is applied. It looked nice on in the store, but then it always does. ..
4. FLUIDLINE EYE-LINER GEL:
5.TECHNAKOHL EYELINER -RISQUE:
MAC products may not always be the most penny friendly cosmetics on the market, but they are also not the most expensive and they do produce some quality items. I will do a post on good less expensive alternatives which I also use. Have you used any of these? How did you find them?
I’m looking forward to using these products and will let you know how I get on.
Its been a while since I posted due to various reasons. One being that I travelled, then on my return I caught the flu a few times and was completely knocked out. But I’m back now and I must say I have missed you and my blog. I hope you all had a great Christmas and New year – I know it was ages ago :-). Its hard to believe that we are fast approaching the end of January already….
This is a smokey eye that I tried using the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette. This palette has more cooler tones like silvers and shimmery neutrals when compared with the original Naked palette.c
To create this look:
Above crease: Tease
Outer v: Blackout
Inner eye: Verve
Lashes: Ardell Demi WispiesWhat do you think of this look?
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed this post and look forward to seeing you in the next one.
I have never claimed to be a makeup artist, but I do enjoy makeup. So I guess I’m more of a makeup enthusiast!
So this is how I did my eye makeup the other day, using my Urban Decay Naked 3 eyeshadow palette. I wasn’t sure about this palette at first. I wondered if these colours would compliment my skin tone, but I must say, I’m quite loving it. I have never really worn pink shades before, but if you put the right colours together and create a smokey eye, you get quite a nice bright finish… 🙂
I wore this look during the day at the weekend. I wanted an understated, but made up look.
Recreate the look:
Naked 3 colours
Eyelid – Buzz
Outer V – Black heart
Transition colour – Factory
Eye brow highlight – Dust
Liquid eyeliner – Dior
Mascara – Estee Lauder, Sumptuous Extreme Lash multiplying, black
Lips – Jubilee by Mac
What do you think of the Naked 3 palette?
The most important thing is to blend, blend and blend some more, so the colours appear to seamlessly merge into each other.
Makeup is fun, something to be enjoyed and we can all experiment. Mistakes may happen, but the key is to just try again…
