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.
