I had the best day yesterday! I don’t want to give away too much, but my mug will be coming to a magazine near you very soon.
I needed to have my photo taken to stick next to my words (pretty nifty) and I had the pleasure of being made up for the occasion. The makeup artist was so super cool; she didn’t mind answering my 101 questions about what she was doing, what she was using and why she was doing it.
This was my first experience with having foundation airbrushed on. It feels like getting a fake tan on a much smaller scale. She used MAC face and body, and I was so pleased with the result that I am heading off to buy some on pay day. She did my cheeks with Shu Uemura glow blush in matte warm pink (m30). I normally do a bronze or peach cheek, so it felt unusual doing pink but I really liked the look. My eyes were done using a Nars eyeshadow duo, although I didn’t catch what colour (bad blogger!). She curled my lashes then slicked on a couple of coats of DiorShow, whilst commenting that it was her #1 choice for mascara (I debated this because I passionately love Covergirl Lash Blast, but I have to admit my lashes looked kickass).
The finishing touch was fairy floss pink lips using my new love, L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Anti-Age Serum lipstick in Freshly Candy. I have been preparing a post wholly devoted to this lippie because, OMG, it is just the sweetest pink ever. I have been planning my ‘looks’ for the two weddings I have coming up, and was thinking this pink lip with a Nars eyeshadow duo I was sent to review. Talk about kismet!
By the way…she did my hair with a medium curling iron. A large one would be too big for my fine hair, and a small one would make Shirley Temple ringlets. The medium one is juuust right, and gives a better curl than I can do with my GHD! Hmmm…another thing to add to the shopping list.
**This is not the best photo, but you can see how nice and even the foundation looks. I promise to post the proper ones in a couple of months once they are published.
