£40 Well Spent

I bought a Christmas pressie yesterday - for ME! I went to House of Fraser in The City and straight to my favourite counter - M.A.C. I had a wonderful makeup artist from Iceland help me. Her makeup looked good so I knew she'd know what to do.

I wanted to try a primer and also buy a really good tinted moisturiser that suited my skin tone. Both of these products work really well. The primer goes on first - apply with a good brush - let it sink in for a bit and then apply the tinted moisturiser and then blusher or whatever you want afterwards. I actually didn't feel I needed anything else. My pores seem to like it - not heavy at all and face feels hydrated which is good in this freezing weather.

I highly recommend going and chatting to the artists at the counter - take the time to choose the right colour. Don't be scared to say how you feel about things (too much, too dark etc). It was fun for us to talk and I told her about my blog so if she's reading this thanks again!

  1. Did she do your makeup for you? How was it? I've been wanting to try them out but the M.A.C. team here always makes women look like trannies.

  2. I agree Stac - but she knew what she was doing and I sort of gravitated towards her cause her makeup didn't look like drag queen wanna be. You just have to shop for one that you like the look of.

  3. Def. go and get your makeup done at MAC -- they just look like trannies because they are required to wear lots of make up to show off the product. At least that is what one of them told me one time...i have had my makeup done there many times and it has all been awesome. Love the primer! I want to get it!
