MAC MAKEOVER AND MINI HAUL









Hello lovelies, it would appear of late that I have done nothing but haul recently. Even after I've photographed a little haul I go out and buy more, I seriously need beauty spending rehab! I think it's because I'm due in May I need to reign it back and I'm panic buying before I have to cut back massively. Not just for the baby but I am wasting money really, I don't need any more make up I have a pretty big collection, bigger than a normal persons beauty stash anyway but I don't drink alcohol, I don't go out at all to be honest, smoke etc or buy pretty dresses so my money goes on Oscar and make up, shoot me aha. 

Anyway, a few weeks back I finally got a Mac makeover I have wanted one for so long but going into a makeup shop full of pretty make up artists was making me quite anxious but I finally took the plunge and I am so glad I did! I had a gorgeous and most lovely make up artist Danielle do my make up for me and she made me feel so at home and talked me through everything she was using to give tips and help me in anyway she could, she even complimented me on my skin and how good my features were to work with. I asked for a spring look and told her I wanted to try and shy away from my more safe neutral zone so she added a bit of purple in to the mix to create a gorgeous smokey eye. You can find Danielle on Facebook and see all her great work and I would highly recommend going to her in Canon street in Birmingham if you live near, the staff are much more lovelier in there than they are in the Mac bit in Selfridges, it was the first time I didn't feel uncomfortable. 

After the makeover I could of easily bought it all as I absolutely adored the look Danielle came up with but that would have cost me a fortune! I spent just under £80 above and was very happy with my purchases but will definitely be going back and getting the other things at some stage. It's the first time I have been properly foundation matched as I used to use NW20 but Danielle thought NC would suit my skin tone much better and as I used to use Studio sculpt I wanted to used a foundation a touch lighter as I found that one really heavy for a day time look, I am now a huge fan of Studio fix fluid in NC15 and it matches my skin perfectly, the only foundation that has truly matched my skin tone, I am in love it has amazing coverage, slightly matte finish to it and lasts all day! I also had to purchase the strobe cream as it made my skin so radiant before Danielle applied my foundation, I couldn't believe how healthy and glowy my skin looked, I got it in the smaller sizes they do just for £10 too so was a bargain.

I got the lipstick in Creme Cup, I heard a lot of bloggers go on about this shade but never swatched it myself, Danielle recommended it with the look she went for and I instantly fell in love with the nudey pink shade, it really suits my skin tone and is just so pretty and matched the mineralize blush in Dainty perfectly another one of Danielle's recommendations and one of her favourite products. I loved the whole make over and felt so confident afterwards, I even stopped into Starbucks before my train and the girl who worked there said my eyebrows looked incredible aha! I have tried to do them like this since that day just a little less extreme and always get compliments thankfully. I love how the makeover only costs £30 and that £30 you have to spend on the products so its a free makeover practically! Every girl needs a pamper once in a while so if your after building up your Mac make up stash go get yourself booked in, you won't regret it.

Have you had a Mac makeover before?
