My Everyday Makeup, contest entry.

This is my contest entry to Lorraine at "TheCurrentCustom", for my everyday makeup.

Face products.

First I use a face primer, BareVitamins Skin Rev-er upper (not pictured), then I use Dior Forever Foundation with a foundation brush, next I use the Mac select cover up concealer with the BareMinerals concealer brush and then with a Mac 181se brush DiorSkin Nude over my t-zone.

I fill in my brows using the Urban Decay Brow Box.

I contour using Loreal Glam Bronze Duo in Blonde Harmony.

And the blush iv been using recently is well dressed, and highlighter in shell pearl beauty powder both by Mac.

*Mac 181se, for powder. BareEssentials Concealer brush. Jelly Pong Pong brush for contouring. Ruby and Milly foundation brush. And an unknown powder brush for blush.*
First I use UDPP all over my lid, I put UD Sell out on my inner corner and inner 3rd, with the same brush I put Mac style snob on the outer 2 3rds and then with a 217 I put UD Mushroom in the crease and outer corner. I use a cream shadow to blend everything with a 224, and finally to highlight I use Prestige get loose eyeshadow in jump blended with a 224.
I use Blacktrack fluid line to line my eyes, Urban Decay eyeliner in zero on the waterline, eyelash curlers and Max Factor False Lash Effect mascara.

*Mac 224, Mac 217, Be never to busy to be beautiful eyeshadow brush, and a Ruby and Milly angled eyeliner brush.*

And finally I apply a lip balm, I used Carmex and then what ever lipstick I'm wearing that day.

So sorry this is such a long post! My friend always says for someone who wears so much makeup I look like I'm wearing hardly any!

Thanks For reading.

Products Im loving right now!

Feels like ages since Iv written anything (probably because it is!)

First thing I'm loving, 2 cheek products. MAC well dressed blush, I don't know why I didn't buy this sooner! It gives the cheeks a nice flush of colour without to much work, i.e a slap on and go product :). Next Mac Shell Pearl beauty powder, Iv been reaching alot for this product and I don't usually wear highlighter on a regular basis.
Now seeing as its going to be summer soon, I thought I would break out the bright-summer colours. Mac Made with love, this was released last year in the colour crafted collection, it is a bright sheer coral/pink. It looks lovely dabbed on the lips.

Love it or Hate it. I love it! And its back on are screens tonight (19th) yay! I missed the first several episodes so bought my self half of season 1, to catch up.

So where have I been, well its exam season and I've been trying to cram in coursework and as much revision as possible (this isn't what I'm loving right now!). Art has been taking over my life for ages and now Spanish as crept up on me as well! My first art exam is this Thursday, wish me luck!

I'm hoping to pre-write several blog posts, and upload them gradually!

Give me Liberty.

A small Mac haul. I mentioned in a previous post that I was really excited for the Liberty of London, but to be honest I only got 2 things.
Not sure if thats a good thing or a bad thing?!

Well heres what I got from the collection,

Shell pearl beauty powder, I have to admit that I first got this because of the packaging * hides face*, but I'm glad I bought it. It is a finally milled peach powder with gold iridescent.

I know Mac Polishes can be a bit hit and miss, and this isnt the best nail polish Iv had but all it takes is 2 good coats for good coverage. Blue India is a grey blue, similar to OPI suzi says feng shui but darker.

I then bought 2 things from the permanent line.

Well Dressed blush, is a pale cool toned pink and is a satin finish. Sable eyeshadow pan which is a plumy brown with gold iridescent.

*Swatches, Sable, Well Dressed, Shell Pearl.*

Did you get anything from the latest collection?
