RAFW- MAC for Seventh Wonderland

Key Makeup Artist:  Sam Correy for M.A.C

M A C_RAFW10_Seventh Wonderland_Sam Correy


"I wanted to steer away from the typical "resort look", instead making the girls look perfectly refreshed and hydrated, as though they’d been drenched in therapeutic waters, not the sun."

Description of the look:

The look called for perfectly concealed skin with a dewy, light-reflective quality. I opted for a nude colour palette over vivid shades, and employed liquid shimmer to emphasis the contours of the face, clear gloss to slick the brows, lids and lips, and natural-looking false lashes, together with a hint of cream shadow, to define the eyes.

Key Products to used to create the Look:

Face: Studio Sculpt Foundation, Prep and Prime Transparent Finishing Powder, Contour with Root Cream Colour Base, Highlight with Strobe Cream and Gloss Crème, Blush with Bamboo Cream Colour Base.

Eyes: Fantastic Frost Cream Colour Base, line lashes with Kid Eyeshadow, Lashes M800-01, Lofty Brown Zoom Lash, Lash, Gloss Crème on lids, Clear Brow Set.

Lips: Freckletone Lipstick, Wildly Lush Plush Glass.

RAFW – MAC for Ginger and Smart

Key Makeup Artist:  Natasha Sevorino for M.A.C

“The inspiration for this collection comes from inner feminine strength and self-awareness.”

“I wanted the make up to be naturally sexy for this show. Skin has been left raw yet made luminous, concealing only minor imperfections. Eye’s are defined and sculpted and gold pigment has been used on the eyes and peak of lips to give a ‘futuristic goddess’ feel to the make up. Soft cream coloured paint has been used as future tribal war paint in the centre of the forehead and temples, to relate directly to ones ‘third eye’ and one’s own self-awareness.”

RAFW – MAC for Lisa Ho

 Key Makeup Artist:  Linda Jefferyes for M.A.C

Description of the look:

Creamy flawless skin with warm copper eye tones shape the eye. Brows are defined slightly heavier and a copper pencil highlights the darker brow. A well contoured face adds shape and definition, lips blend in with the creamy warm skin tone.

Key Products to used to create the Look:

Face: Face & body foundation, contoured with sculpting powder pro palette sculpt and shadowy and Paints Bamboom Set powder in porcelain invisible and dusty rose.

Hair Tutorial- Oscars Inspired Messy Up-do / Bun for day or night

During the awards season I noticed a few messy up-do’s. This is my version of it.

This can easily be worn day or night and is best achieved with dirty hair, (as with most up-do’s). I would recommend  using a hairspray to finish, I just seem to be losing everything lately!

This style can be as neat or as messy as you would like and is a great hairstyle to try if you don’t have much time or need to wash your hair but want a ‘pulled together’ look.

If you don’t have hair extensions to add volume to your do you can easily use a rolled up stocking with the toe cut out and thread your ponytail through it. Or you can use a rat.

The makeup worn in this video is the Napoleon Perdis Walter Runway Inspired look.

The shine spray I used was by Evo that was sent to me, I do have to say its lovely. It smells like watermelon candy!

Sophia Loren Inspired with Benefit Smokin’ Eyes Palette

I really wanted to do a Sophia Loren look and I also wanted to show you that palettes can be used for other looks than intended.

I wish I could have gotten great picture of the look  but unfortunately I didn’t. This is a screen cap, hence the bad quality.


So here’s the video

Sorry that the lighting isn’t great!

The Benefit Palette was given to me for PR consideration, please don’t think this influences my opinion. As you can see the palette is versatile and you can use it for other purposes than just a Smokey eye, you can see from the tutorial!
The Primer was given to me by a fellow blogger for reviewing purposes and I won the Napoleon liner.

This is a tad on the dramatic side but you know me I can’t help it!

For more about the palette I wrote up a review here
