Friday Fave! Mac Face & Body Foundation

This has been my go to foundation of choice this summer for most of my clients as it is a sheer and natural coverage, long wearing so need for primer, and it is super comfortable to wear in the hot weather.

It is always a favourite in many a Makeup artist's kit, certainly an oldie but definitely a goodie!!!

It is a buildable light to medium coverage, just perfect if you like a natural look and do not like the feel of foundation.  It achieves a beautiful skin finish and as the name mentions it is great to wear on the body as well, excellent for covering thread veins and pale uneven skin tone anywhere on the body.

Possibly my favourite foundation ever if not its definitely right up there!


£24.50 50ml
£30.00 120ml
Available in 13 shades.

Friday Fave! MAC Shape & Shade Brow Tint.

MAC Shape & Shade Brow Tint is my new favourite go-to product!

I have been using shade 'Fling' for about a month now and I absolutely love it!  I find it really easy to use and it creates natural long lasting defined brows effortlessly.

Dual-ended application.  Although I must admit I mostly just use the felt tip end and feel this is enough for me on its own.  One end consists of coloured powder on a small sponge applicator which you can apply to brows to fill in colour and set,  just using the felt tip end to draw on strokes of hair.  The pen is great if you have sparse brows, it mimics natural hair beautifully.

In my opinion it is the best brow product I have come across in a long time!

The results are also waterproof and long-wearing.

Available in seven shades.
