The birthday blues haven’t left just yet. My auntie was visiting from London and bought my birthday present with her and as you may have guessed by the title it was the MAC Nutcracker Sweet Nude Lip Bag Set.

This set includes:

  • Lipstick: (Shade: Magic Spell) Midtone mauve nude
  • Lipgloss: (Tuned In) Midtone Rosey nude
  • Lip Liner (Shade: In Control) Brown mauve
  • Nutcracker Make-Up Bag

As you all know nude has to be my favourite colour to wear on my lips! These are such beautiful shades as you can tell from the swatches. You could easily change from what lip liner and lipstick to mix and match the nude shade with.

The lip liner has to be my favourite as it’s just such a lovely colour and easy to apply. This lip gloss is something I cannot wait to experiment with as I’ve been so into liquid lipsticks recently so it’ll be good to have that change. Finally the lipstick has such a nice sheen too it and I do love the colour as it’s similar to the lip liner. I love the make-up bag as it’s the perfect size to slide my essentials into my hand bag or into my bag for college plus its such a pretty bag I mean it’s a win win. Thank you to my aunty who I know reads my blog I love my present!

Last week I got invited down to Selfridges to get my make up done at a counter of my choice, I mean this was definitely something I wouldn’t turn down. It was a coincidence that I had a wedding that week so it was a perfect opportunity to get dolled up! The counter I chose was MAC and my younger sister Alisha accompanied me to also get her make up done.

We arrived at the store and went over to the MAC counter and were greeted by one of the make-up artists and given a station to sit at. I then was greeted by the lovely Phoebe who was going to be doing my make-up. After our introductory chat Phoebe asked me what look I wanted to go for. I mentioned that I wanted my make up to complement my outfit which was a mix of a plum purple and a hot pink. We then decided to have a more purple eye with a hint of pink with a vibrant lip. I was excited for the final look.

Phoebe started with my eyebrows by giving them a natural look with the MAC eyebrow pencil. The shape was still there but with a much sharper definition.

Foe the eyes she used the eyeshadow shades, macroviolet, rule, red brick, blackberry and passionate.  This created such a nice combination of the correct amount of pink to purple. One of my favourite parts of this was the glitter to add shimmer from the trolls collection it was in the shade fushcia. I decided I wanted winged liner which finished the eye make up off so well using the precise eyeliner. To add volume to my lashes we used eyelash curlers and then the MAC mascara. 

She used the NC35 prolong wear concealer to cover and redness and then continued onto the foundation. Phoebe then asked about how my skin was either oily or dry. As my skin was quite dry we went for a dewy foundation look using the strobe cream first before applying the foundation. The foundation used was the studio sculpt NC37.

For highlight and contour Phoebe used a creme highlighter which I’d never tried before but she recommended it. I was glad she chose it because it was so pretty and super pigmented. For contour we used the MAC studio sculpt this added dimension to my face strutting the cheekbones complimenting the look perfectly.

Finally for the lips, Phoebe lined my lips with the magenta lip liner and used the lipstick amarous which I loved, it was a perfect match with the eye make up and my outfit!

Alisha got her make-up done by the lovely Hannah. She went for a more subtle make-up look as her outfit was cream and went for a neutral eye and a velvet teddy lip. We both really enjoyed getting our make-up done at MAC from the girly chats to learning tips and tricks on make-up.

I loved my make up that night, it was such a pleasure getting my make up done by the lovely & talented Phoebe! I do recommend going down and getting your make up done for a night out or event you maybe attending it’s a perfect chance to try new products and learn so much more about products (I need a shopping trip to a MAC counter ASAP)  and application of make up because I know I learnt so much that I didn’t already know.

Hey guys!!!

Today I’m starting a new series of posts – ‘I love it, I want it’. I will post this post every month, of the all the clothing,accessories and makeup I love and want.

1. Adidas superstar trainers 2 – Selfridges&Co. If you know me,you’ll know that I love any type of sports shoes! This is the reason I need these they would go with all my outfits as my wardrobe consists of black and white. I really need these.

2. Curved hem oversized shirt khaki – Missguided. Khaki is back in fashion and this shirt is so simple and you could style it up simply with a necklace and look beautiful on a night out.

3. Mariza patent crosshatch lady bag – Ted Baker. I’m not much a handbag girl but when I saw this i fell in love. Its beautiful. Simply so sassy.

4. Ankle grazer skinny jeans white – Missguided. I need to stop wearing dark colour so I thought white jeans are a necessity. They’d look gorgeous with a navy blue top.

5. Braided blucher – Zara. I love wearing brogues. I saw these in Trafford Centre they looked so nice to wear. You can wear them with everything.

6. Shurton crossback top – Jack Wills. This would look so pretty with high waisted white jeans I love it. The back of it is so lovely.

7. Diesel varsity coat zipped hood – Asos. I love this coat. It reminds me of a baseball jacket well I suppose it is one but just a little longer. I love looking sporty but fashionable.

8. Sleek contour kit – Boots. I have been wanting this for ages the colour of is perfect for contour. Next time I’m in Boots I will 100% purchase this!!

9. Well dressed powder blush – MAC. This blusher would look brilliant with spring outfits and just give you a natural rosy cheek look. I love it. It’s a need need need.

10. Naked 3 pallete – Urban Decay. Guys I just wish this was in my makeup draw. The colours in this pallete are actually stunning. They’d make my makeup looks complete.

11. Deep purple lipstick – MAC. I’m tired of wearing pink I want a darker colour so I thought this purple would be nice to tryout.
