Makeup of the day – Mac Heroine

I decided to start a new series. I usually post a makeuplook on IG on Wednesdays and I don’t want to over-load the post with product description and other details so I am going to do that here, see if you like it.

I’m going to start with this week’s look where Mac’s Heroine lipstick was the focus. Sometimes I just love a strong lip, it is easy yet very effective and brightens up a very simple outfit too.

Here are the details:

Skin Prep:

Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel, The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 Serum, Liz Earle Superkin Moisturizer (unfragranced), just before applying the foundation I popped on a touch of Pixi Caviar Essence for extra hydration and used the e.l.f lip scrub followed by lots of PawPaw lip balm. (No heavy SPF this time, I wasn’t spending much time outside that day.)


A mix of YSL All Hours B30 and Make Up Forever Ultra HD Foundation in Y215 (to lighten up the shade and texture a bit) buffed in with a Real Techniques sponge.

Colour Corrector, Concealer:

Garnier SkinActive BB Eye Roll-On,  Mac Pro Longwear Concealer in NC25.


Kiko Precision Eyebrow Pencil in 04, Benefit Ready Set Brow.


Mac Pro Lonwear Paint Pot in Utterly Becoming (base), Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look in a Palette in Natural Beauty 2. Enhance shade applied with fingers all over the lid and a little bit of the smoke shade along the socket applied with a Mac 217 brush. The finishing step is lash curling (I have the Mac curler) and lashings of  e.l.f Length and Volume Mascara.


Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid in Pearl, Makeup Revolution London Reloaded Newtrals 2 palette, top left corner shade, Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look in a Palette in Natural Beauty 7. Highlight shade and a touch of 6. Cheek Pop shade in the centre.


Mac Heroin lipstick (two layers for longevity) and Heroine lip pencil and a touch of Tanya Burr’s Birthday Cake gloss in the centre of the lips.


I have used a Liz Earle SLS free shampoo, Aussie Winter Miracle Conditioner and used the Maui Coconut Mils Weightless Oil Mist on towel dry hair. After a blow dry, I straightened it with a classic GHD straightener.

The glasses I wear are a very simple pair from the Boots men’s range.
