Mac Pro-Longwear Concealer in NC30

This has been a favourite look of mine over the past week or so, which came about when I realised that I was a little bit bored of sporting the same neutral eye on a daily basis (from the same palette - shades 3 and 5 - numbers go from left to right).
I decided on doing a subtle gold and bronze smokey eye using shades 6 and 7, and when paired with a peachy-coral lip (my favourite) I found that it really perked up my face and gave me a bit more of a healthy glow.
I really like using the Estee Lauder Invisible Fluid Makeup as a base, as while it gives a bit more coverage than a tinted moisturiser, it still looks really natural, and blends in seamlessly, eliminating any concerns about lines or tide-marks. It matches my skin perfectly, and with MUA Bronzed Perfection as a contour and dusted lightly across my forehead and nose and blended well, it provides a nice, healthy base.
As I was going for a peach-coral lip, I chose the Mac Mineralize Skinfinish in Light Year for my cheeks. What I love about this is that with it's peachy-gold hue, it doubles up as both a blush and highlighter, so a small amount dusted across my cheek bones is all that's required.
As I've mentioned before, the MUA Pro Brow Kit is now an every-day staple in my routine, and something I can't live without. It's got everything I need to shape my brows and keep them looking neat and tidy all day (review here).
Mascara-wise, I'm still staying loyal to the L'oreal Volume Million Lashes, although I have now branched out slightly and am giving the Excess Mascara a go. I'm still undecided on which of the two I prefer, so keep an eye out for a comparison post, which will be coming up soon.
You may have noticed that the concealer seems to be a little darker than you'd expect. Well, all will be explained very soon, as I'm also getting ready to write a review on that and will tell you the whole story in that post!

So that's what's on my face today. What's on yours?
Have a lovely day everyone.



  1. Hello dear :) nice your blog and cute post, now I follow you with pleasure on GFC and Bloglovin! you expect from me if you like :)

    Kiss Tea.

  2. Absolutely love the look of that lipstick!! xx

    1. It's so nice, I'll be popping a review up next week xx

  3. Some great products here - I really want Light Year! I've been eyeing up the MUA bronzer for a while now but as I'm so pale I'm worried it will make me look orange or muddy! Would you recommend it for pale skin? xxx

    1. I think it would be ok as long as you have a decent brush to blend it out with. It's not as orange as it might look. I always think of myself as being a paley, but I think I've naturally picked up a bit more colour over here. It's cheap as chips though, so at least you wouldn't have spent too much if you don't like it, and you get loads of product for your money which is a bonus if you do xx

  4. Your blog is very cute, just come across your blog from the Bloggers Birthdays.



    1. Thanks very much Sammie, glad you like it :)xxx
