Hey everyone! I am not one to have a full face of make up. I simply just don’t have the energy to do it every single day. Besides, transforming your face every once in a while makes the process just a tad bit more exciting. I have been looking for the right brown lipstick for everyday wear and I have finally found one. It is called Antique Velvet by MAC. It’s not too dark and it’s not to light. I’m not about that everyday red lip life. It’s too in your face. If you haven’t noticed already…I have a slight obsession with lipsticks *wink wink*.
First, I primed my face with Rimmel Match Perfection Fix and Perfect Pro Primer. I used to use the Matte Me Rimmel primer but Superdrug seem to have discontinued it. I don’t understand why they continually stop selling all my favourite products *sigh*. Anyways, I applied my Sleek BB cream in the colour medium with my finger tips. I have found that this is the most effective method for applying BB cream. Only two squirts are needed; anything more and it will give an unnatural finish. Afterwards, I filled in my brows using Embark by MAC and did my eyeliner using liquid eyeliner by Collection. If you want a step by step guide on how I did my eyeliner you can check out my how to achieve perfect winged eyeliner post!
One thing I love about Embark is the fact that I can use it as contour too.I applied it to my cheekbones using a contour brush and blended it out.Lastly, I lined my lips with Chestnut by MAC and applied Antique Velvet by MAC to my lips. The matte lipstick range by MAC is by far the best set of lipsticks I have come across so far. They are matte, pigmented and long lasting but keep your lips moisturised over a long period of time.
