Do we all love Mac Cosmetics right?
When I first move to UK, Mac was that brand I could not stop buying from, everything had to be mine, all the collections where driving me crazy, all the lipsticks I was used to see just on magazines where there in the flesh, it was a proper addition.
Then I kinda of slow down a bit, probably confused by the constant dropping of new products, shades, collections, it was just too much, but in my make up collection, some staples are and will always be from Mac.
Lady Danger, Show Orchid lipsticks, Stereo Rose blush, Feline eye pencil to name a few, will never ever find competition in my top 10 make up must have.
Just for this reason, when my friend Rowena told me that Mac Senior MUA, Dominic Skinner, was gonna be at Selfridges Trafford, I booked my make over with him within seconds.
Walking around Selfridges Trafford Centre with no make up on was like going around naked for me, but there I was, all ready for my Mac make over.
First of all, let me tell you Mr Skinner is a proper gentleman.
He is incredibly nice, polite, elegant, gentle, funny and oh dear you will have to stop me cos I could go on for hours, I am not surprised he is Senior MUA.
I did not have just my make up done, he talked me about every single product as a mother talks about her child.
Textures, colours, trends, every single aspect was covered.
He blended, contoured, highlighted and that was all it took for me to fall back in love with Mac Cosmetic
I asked for a subtle smoky eyes, I know I know, I am boring but I just cannot get enought about this style.
Here is my own face chart I was kindly gifted (that will be probably framed and placed on display in my room) on the day and this is the products breakdown Dominic used.
Cleanse off oil, fix plus, softening lotion, marine serum, mineralize eye cream, strobe cream peachlite.
NC37 sculpt foundation
Prolongwear concealer (both must haves!).
brushes #190 and # 286
Taupe Velux brow liner
All that glitters, twinks, mustache (from nutcracker collection) eyeshadows
Long espresso, cat's meow liners
Instacurl lash mascara
Prep&Prime loose transparent powder
Give me sun, sof and gentle blush
Creme in your coffee lipstick
brushes #219 and #217
I could not stop admiring my eyes.
I normally wear a thick line of black liner so when he suggested to use just a pencil liner and beld it out I was a bit uncertain about it.
I was wrong of course, it's so natural yet so intense!
Now, I need your help, can we start a campaign to have Mr Skinner as a regular guest in Manchester?
Once a month should be fine.
Thank you Dominic!!
