Yesterday I was one VERY lucky lady. I was invited to an event hosted by MAC Cosmetics at London Fashion Week at Somerset House and had the most exciting day ever!
I'm going to talk about it in 2-3 posts because I want to tell you EVERYTHING so you feel like you were there too, but this one is just a quickie because I'm more tired than a sloth on sleeping pills.
At one point during the day, we were given the chance to have our makeup done by one of the makeup artists, in any look we wanted- yabbadabbadooo! Now, seeing as I have been in a bit of a rut lately, doing the same looks over and over, I asked the artist (Natasha from the Dublin store- a cosmetic genius) to do strong red lips, as this is something I have never had the nerve to do myself.
I seem to be totally incapable of taking decent pictures of my own face, so here are my shoddy attempts and at the bottom I'll tell you what Natasha used.
Ok, so I look a bit mental here but I was having a 'bleaugh moment' and forgot to smile/use my face at all hahaha. This was taken in the mirror of the MAC media booth (which by the way, was heaven. Actual heaven).
This is Natasha the Makeup Goddess. She gave me so many brilliant tips that I would never have thought of and I really feel excited about trying some new things out.
So, what did Natasha use to create this look?
Lip Pencil in Cherry
Lipstick in Red Russian
I need to buy all of these the moment I have some mula! They are wonder products for sure!
NW25 Pro Long Wear Concealer
Medium Care Blend (not entirely sure what this is)
Fling Brow Pencil
Eyeliner- which I think was Fluidline but obviously I had my eyes shut! ahaha
Anndd I already had my own mascara on.
It was so fun having my makeup done by a professional and I'm looking forward to telling you all more about the day.
What do you think? Would you sport a red pout?
