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.)

Foundation:

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.

Eyebrows:

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

Eyes:

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.

Cheeks:

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.

Lips:

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.

Hair:

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.
