MAC Favourites

Mac is by far my favourite makeup brand so I thought I'd do a post on my favourite Mac products. I am currently getting into wearing eyeshadow more and am building up my mac eyeshadow palette at the moment, however I only have 4 eyeshadows so far so that's why I didn't include any eye products in this post.

Mineralize Skinfinish Soft and Gentle -
This is possibly one of the most well known products from Mac, absolutely amazing highlighter! Leaves a beautiful sheen on the skin. I'm obsessed.

Studio Fix Fluid NC35 -
This has been a favourite of mine for years. No matter how many foundations I buy and try out, I always find my way back to this one. I love the finish it gives and the colour matches my fake tan perfectly.

Mineralize Blush Warm Soul -
I'm not really a big blusher fan, this is the only blusher I wear on a regular basis. It gives a gentle glow to the skin and is such a pretty colour.

Boldy Bare Lip Liner -
I love Macs lip liners, I always tend to lose them on nights out though. Spice and Redd would have been in my favourites if they hadn't magically disappeared out of my bag. Boldy bare is my current favourite as its a very natural pinky brown colour that's easy to throw on.

Blankety and Velvet Teddy lipstick -
My favourite product from MAC are their lipsticks, no brand does lipsticks like MAC does! As i am obsessed with browny nudes, My two faves are Blankety (as you can tell I really need to purchase a new one.. this is my most worn MAC lippie) and Velvet Teddy.

What are your MAC favourites?

Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit


 After seeing all the hype on this palette and debating whether or not I need it for so long, I finally gave into temptation and purchased it. As a contour-aholic I just couldn't resist any longer. I bought this palette a few weeks ago and haven't stopped using it since, I am in love. This palette is very versatile you can use it to set, contour, bronze, highlight and you could use the shades as eyeshadow.

 In the picture above I used a mix of Banana and Vanilla under the eyes to set concealer, Fawn to carve out the cheekbone, Java and Havana mixed to bronze up the face and Sand as my cheekbone highlight.

August Favourites

Urban Decay Smoky Palette - 
I had to include this as I haven't stopped using it since I got it, I use the more natural colours for an everyday look and go all out with the glittery shades on a night out.

Essence Lip Liner Satin Mauve - 
This is one of my favourite lip liners at the moment and it's only £1, absolute bargain.

MAC Lipstick Creme Cup -
I've had this lipstick years and at first I wasn't that keen on it, but this paired with the essence lipliner has become my favourite combo! Makes my lips look so much more plump.

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation - 
I decided to pick this up after hearing about how good it is for us dry skin girls and I wasn't disappointed. The only down side is that because it is a foundation aimed at more dryer skins it tends to not last as long as foundations for oily skin, so I do have to set it with the maybelline fit me powder which I also love.

NYX Matte Bronzer Deep Tan - 
This has been my go to bronzer this month, its quite a deep dark warm toned bronzer I love it for contouring or just for adding some colour to my face.

Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tan - 
This tan is quite natural and subtle compared to other tans, which isn't really what I tend to go for but it can be built up with a few layers on. It has quite a pleasant floraly scent to it which I love. It develops in 1 hour but I tend to leave it on overnight as I like a deeper tan.
