Hello and welcome to my blog. I know i have been a bit silent and it is because i have exam i am preparing for so during lunch and the weekends i am in my books. Once again thanking God for another week: glory to Him alone.
This picture was taken at the wrong time but looks very posey lol
I was going for blue and red. The eye shadow is max factor 45 Sapphire rage and the outer corner i used MUA midnight blue. It is not that visible, i know but it looks very dark blue like navy blue but darker. In my tear duct, i used Bare minerales morning glow.
I have struggles to work with that Max factor blue for a while. I think it was ok this time round
I love the finish of the elf lipstick in ruby red. It tastes sweet lol and it has a velvet finish. Foundation and conceal is mac. My usual shade. Ben Nye in Topaz to set my under eye.
This is the final look this sunday. The top and skirt are both Primark i bought this a long time ago. I am part of the protocol team in my local church and we wear uniform every sunday. When i do visit i do wear the uniform. The shoes are from New Look i also had this for some time.
Until next time happy sunday.
Hello and welcome to my blog. This is yet another beauty blog about my recent MAC purchases. I have worn this on three occasions; twice last weekend and on new years eve so i thought a review was befitting.
A quick recap regarding my recent purchases are the NW55 Studio fluid in NW55, concealer in NW45 and prolongwear powder in deep dark.
The fluid gives you a full coverage and holds up really well. It covers dark circles around the eye area and gives you a good canvas to work on and due to this, you can actually wear the fluid and powder for a natural no-makeup makeup look. For primer i used a bit of the loreal and milk of magnisia as i was going to be out for a while. I concealed with the MAC NW45 and set my under eye with ben nye powder in topaz and ebony to contour. I also used the Anastasia Beverly Hills glowkit bronze to highlight.
Having applied the MAC NW55 foundation on
I really love this foundation shade and would buy it again but will only wear it to weddings or other events that my makeup will be required to be on point.
When i applied the foundation in NW55 and concealer in NW45. You can stop at this point for a more natural look or opt for an eye liner.
I will also keep to the NW55 although i think there should be another shade between that and the NW58. Its slightly bright by itself in pictures but i can work with it. One can wear the foundation and powder as is because it gives you a really good coverage in addition you can get really good pictures at this stage as well.
I took this pictures using my Huawei P8 and using filter demist which helps make every detail of your makeup stands out and one layer beauty filter.
Apart from the NW58 i feel MAC foundation when applied tend to be a bit brighter. And this is a mon avis (in my opinion). May i also add that they make the best concealers ever. I have tried other concealers but i find myself going back to MAC. I like the NW45 both the fluid coverup and cream one. For a more affordable one i will use the LA girl pro which i got from Beauty Bay.
You can get professional natural looking shots both for portofolios and personal keep in addition to artistic shots.
I hope this has been helpful.
Until next time, its bye from me.
It looks like i have another review coming up. I love M.A.C foundations so i was adamant about finding my shade with them again. I recently purchased these items from them on HOF.com. Their cream foundation helped me in my late teens in covering up my hyperpigmentation so we kind of had something good going on. You can call it my first love. 😍
I initially had the NW50 but over time i felt my complexion had changed so it was no longer matching my complexion. The cream foundation i usually wore was constantly out of stock so out of frustration i stopped searching.
I turned into a mixtress and started mixing NW50 and NW58 which is basically espresso-like shade, their darkest. This was during the past 2 to 3 years until i got my hands on l’oreal true matches: deep golden and deep cool. I think NW55 is inbetween NW50 and NW58 so i am in good hands. I will review this with pictures once i try them on this weekend.
Swatch me: The studio fix fluid blended in with my skin so well i had to keep adding more so the shade stands out.
These are the items i purchased
MAC Pro Longwear Powder/Pressed
Product code: 221722114
Colour: Dark Deep
MAC Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 Foundation
Product code: 160690735
MAC Pro Longwear Concealer
Product code: 160693571
This purchase was partly subsidise by a £25.00 HOF voucher given to me by my old work colleagues, so I paid about £39.00 out of the total of £64.00.
This was not what i had planned to post however i couldnt contain my excitment so here it goes. Thank you for stopping by.
Until next time its bye from me.
