I absolutely love makeup but generally didn't know how to apply the stuff on my face as beauty and makeup has always been something that doesn't come naturally to me, so I tended to stick to very simple classic styles like The Red LIP where you can't go wrong. But recently I've thought I need to start saying yes to more things including trying different shades of lipstick. So I tried Mac Cyber which I've fallen in LOVE with (hence this post). So here is My Version of A QUICK & EASY MAKE UP LOOK. Now I am unfortunately not a makeup artist so this is just my method only but I've learned tons of tips and tricks from my bestest Natalie (natural makeup pro, I hate her!) who years ago showed me a youtube clip of the Professional Makeup Artist sister duo Pixiwoo. From then on I practically stalked their page and they've basically changed my make up life and taught me all about foundation which I spent years hating. (Ok that's probably another post) I hope you enjoy my first makeup post!

The Makeup Stuff

1. Firstly I wash, cleanse and moisture my face. Then I apply Mac Select Cover Concealer on any blemishes and dark circles under my eyes using my 286 Mac Blending Brush.

2. Next I slap on my Mac Mineralize Moisture Foundation using my Mac Stipling Duo Fibre Face Brush.

3. Next I apply Mac Mineralize Skin Finish Powder using my Real Techniques Power Brush (softest brush ever!)

4. Next I move on to my eye balls specifically the lids and apply my Mac Pro Longwear Primer Pot to eliminate and smooth out skin.

5. Then I apply my matte finish Mac Eye-Shadow to my lids using an eye shadow brush.

6. Next I slightly fill in my eyebrows by combing my brows first then using my Mac Eyebrow pencil.

7. Then I  go back to my eyes as I like to add a feline flick using Mac Liquid Eyeliner aka Winged eyeliner (and hope to get both eyes the exact same. The pressure!)

8. Then to add a little flutter to my lashes I use Benefit Roller Lash Mascara to my top lashes and Mac Zoom Lash Mascara to the bottom lashes.

9. I then add a little rose to my cheeks using My Mac Blusher Powder and my 163 Mac Blusher Brush.

10. Next I move on to my lips and simply put on my Mac Cyber Satin Lipstick. Here you can add a liner to enhance your lips making them look fuller. I do wear liners with different lipsticks but with this shade I don't feel I need to as it's already quite a dramatic colour. So lip liner is totally optional.

11. Lastly to complete my look I add a touch of highlight to my cheek bones using Mac Strobe Cream. 

And that is it folks. Quick & Easy!

As you can see I haven't added contour which I occasionally do, bronze glow or done any of the other extra makeup artistry bits but you can of course include that yourself and tailor along the way.
