My Face #12

February 26, 2014

I reverted to an old favourite eyeshadow combination a lot this month. If you are a longtime reader of the blog, you'll know that the little MAC quad I'm talking about was the result of a makeover I had with MAC for my 21st birthday and, while I have never managed to recreate the amazing work the MUA did with these shades, I do wear them a lot as they work so well together and while still neutral, are a nice alternative to the normal bronzes and browns I gravitate towards. 

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer
NARS Light Reflecting Pressed Setting Powder
MAC Pro Longwear Blush in Baby Don't Go 
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Mood Exposure
MAC Vanilla (Lid/Highlight)
MAC Quarry (Crease)
MAC Smut (Outer Corner)
L'Oreal Miss Manga Mascara*
HD Brows Palette in Foxy*
NYX Lip Pencil in Pinky

A word on the blush. I have been pretty much head-over-heels in love with the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Mood Exposure since I got it and did a whole video on it. It looks quite subdued and flat in the pan but, on the face, it just comes alive. There is so much dimension and depth to the shade and I find myself sighing happily every time I see how it carves out my non-existent cheekbones and warms my face up. So much love. 


  1. I need to stop reading this blog, I want everything! You look gorgeous! x

  2. I own Mood Exposure too, it's a great lush isn't it?

  3. Really beautiful! Would love to see yourself and Dee do each others makeup sometime! Or perhaps a post like I did, product association! Who influenced your purchases and enables you girls!! :D


  4. You always look flawless! :) Like "Fiona Bradley" said I'd also love to hear who inspires you girls and your makeup purchases? Share your secrets :) X

  5. Hi, I'm really curious as to the name of the reddish-brown mac eyeshadow in the top right hand corner of the quad?

  6. I really want to try Mood Exposure and the Nars setting powder. I love the look of Smut too :)
