I’m going to divide this post into 2 separate parts, just because I have way too much to talk about! If you have me on instagram (click here to follow if you don’t already!), you’ll know I was lucky enough to be invited down to Mac Leeds in Harvey Nics to have my make-up done. Me being me, thought I’d take full advantage of this and get my make-up done for my course ball. So this post is all about my mac experience, and the second will be about all the products I HAD to go back and purchase!
After taking my friend Sarah along for moral supporting, I was greeted by Shaz who was the girl who was going to do my make-up. I haven’t actually had my make-up done professionally before, so I was pretty nervous and didn’t really know what to expect. However, Shaz was so lovely and make me feel really comfortable. As I was going to a ball and wearing a LBD, I wanted a classic red lip, minimal eyes with winged liner, defined brows and a heavy contour and highlight. I probably was a bit of a nightmare, ’cause I just wanted the look to be perfect for my event. I’m just a girl who knows what she wants!
I used to pretty much buy all my mac up from mac up until about 2 years, when I started branching out more with different brands. Apart from lipsticks, you really can’t beat a mac lipstick can you? I took my latest mac lip purchase along in Fashion Legacy from the liquid lipstick range. It’s just that amazing classic red shade that you’re always trying to get your hands on. And with it being a liquid lipstick, I didn’t have to worry about re-applying because it really doesn’t budge!
I couldn’t believe how much I loved the final look! I was worried about the make-up lasting the night. However, with plenty of primer and setting spray, I really had nothing to worry about! A full list of the products used on my face is below.
I was so obsessed with some of the products used. So keep your eyes peeled for my next post to find out which products I just had to have! Have you ever had your make-up done professionally before? How was your experience? Let me know in the comments!
