XMAS and NYE Mac haul

Hey Everyone 

I'm back with a mac haul.  Over the Christmas holidays I received mac vouchers as gifts and went to get my makeup done for my work christmas night out and then for New Year's Eve.  Of course at mac you can pay for this service by purchasing producs so these are the products I purchased over the festive period.

For my work Xmas night out I had a dark smokey eye with a rose gold shimmer tint and the products I purchased were the;

Mac Pro Longwear foundation in NC15 which I now use as my every day foundation when I am wearing fake tan (which is most of the time). It's amazing I wear it during dance class and it doesn't budge even when I sweat and it also held up during a rain storm as I stood outside for 40 mins waiting to meet jack black (which was also amazeballs).

A pigment colour powder in the colour tan and also the mineralize skinfinish natural in medium deep

The girl who did my makeup chose the colour tan as it matched my rose gold watch and would compliment other jewellery that I was wearing that night.  And for an all over bronzed look she used the mineralize skin finish to bronze up my face/neck.  

She also measured, cut and applied a pair of natural false lashes (no 7) which can be reused which is amazing.  I had enquired about a primer as I am allergic to urban decay primer potion so she gave me away a mini mac pot tester of the prep and prime eye (light) so I am in the process of trying it.

On my second trip to mac for New Years eye I had a different artist do my eyes which I also loved however her service wasn't as good as the first time (however it was busy so she was clearly rushing).
She gave me a purple/black sparkly smokey eye which I absolutely loved.

Instead of a primer on my eye she used a paint pot which created a fantastic base and a Matte finish onto my eye so I purchased it and it is in the colour painterly.  She also used a combination of eye shadows to create the look and then topped it off with a pressed pigment in the colour moth to add the sparkle which I purchased also.

Instead of using fake lashes on New Year's Eve I decided just to go for some mascara so she used the in extreme dimension lash in the colour black extreme which I also purchased as even though I'm not 100% keen on the brush absolutely loved what it did to my lashes.

And to finish off both of the looks I bought two separate lipglosses, one dazzle glass and one cremesheen  glass in the colours love alert and just superb which I love however not so keen on the brush applicator of the dazzle glass lip gloss.  Love the colours though and they finish off a makeup look perfectly.

So that was my two trips to mac.  Sorry I don't have decent pictures of my eyes after the were finished I was mostly in a rush this Xmas and didn't think to take pictures in good lighting for my blog.  

Hope you enjoyed this post and I'll see you next week with an urban decay naked inspired post:) 

Check out my YouTube as I will be uploading a video there on my mac haul as soon as I get 5 minutes alone to make the video :) 

Lots of love

Where have I been!!

Hi Everyone 

I can't believe it's been so long since I posted a blog and filmed a video.  For months I have been saying that I really wanted to get back into it however have just been so busy with moving back home and starting a new college course that every time I tried I would always film/write an "I'm back" style post and then never follow it up.

Last night I spent the night looking through my old YouTube videos and saw that I had over 200 subscribers and I couldn't believe it.  I also saw that on one of my videos I had over 28 thousand views which is absolutely incredible.  This has really urged me to get back into filming and stick with it this time.

I want to start with a mac haul video as we have just had a store open up where I am from and I have been buying things like crazy and I love it.  I also have a lot of empty products for a video and lots of other things planned.  I am aiming at the moment to do 1 video and 1 blog post a week so hopefully I will be able to keep that up :) 

Speak soon 

Love secret beauty
