So I ventured up to Dublin 2 weeks ago with my Sister to stock up on my makeup kit and for some serious shopping therapy mostly window shopping I might add, but still thoroughly enjoying!
I usually do my makeup hauls over on my snap chat @makeupbylisa but decided to just put into a blog and write a little about the products just if anyone wanted extra info. I have spilt this post into two parts as I think you’d have eyes of gee by the time you finish reading it!!
First up are one of my favourite bridal foundations to use Mac Face & Body. I purchased C2, C3, N1 & N2. I will do another blog post next week going through what these shade numbers mean!
These foundations are extremely liquidity and probably best suited for dry to combination skin type in my opinion. It photographs beautifully hense why us makeup artists love them so much. You can also apply onto the body or make those pins look super dewy, that’s why these make a popular choice for makeup artists that work backstage on fashion shows!
The coverage is sheer to medium but very buildable! So just apply extra on the area that needs more coverage usually the chin and nose area. I have been using these foundations for almost 5 years and still love them as much as I did back then!
This foundation is priced at €39.00 for a 120ml bottle which is a fair size foundation and can be purchased at MAC Cosmetics in Brown Thomas on Grafton Street, Dublin.
Mac Pro Longwear concelears are definitely a must-have for any Makeup Artists kit! They are my all time favourites for concealing those dark circles while highlighting the under eye area!
These are the Pro-Longwear Concelears I have always used these and get it hard to breakaway, I have tried different brands but I always end up staying true to Mac!
There are numerous shades to choose from so you will be guaranteed to get the perfect shade for you! These retail at €23.00 which is pricey but worth the investment!
The one thing I would say is that you have to be work with them quickly when applying onto the under eye area as they set quite quickly. I apply mine with either my Cailyn Cosmetics ‘O WOW’ Brush or a damp beauty blender (I will leave links below).
Either one is great, using patting motions which helps the product blend into the skin! If you don’t have either try using ur ring finger with the same patting technique. I then set this in place with my setting powder!
To purchase the O’WOW brush just click Cailyn Ireland
That’s all for now and I will update with part 2 before the weekend! Any questions on these foundations or concealer just leave a comment below.
