The Makeup Menu featuring MAC Craving Lipstick

As much as I fall head over heels for strong bold colours combined with sultry smokey eyes, it’s not something I reach for very often, in fact it’s rare that I do ‘over dramatic’ make up… unless of course I’m planning on hitting the tiles, and being an often exhausted mama who works her socks off & is addicted to blogging daily, I’m sure you can imagine there’s very little time for dancing around handbags under a mirror balls these days!

So instead I prefer to play it safe with my make up looks. Currently I’m building up a great collection of everyday staples that are affordable, long lasting and easy to wear. A delightful menu of cosmetics that keep my daily lust for a little glam more than happily topped up without going too overboard. Having received one of my most lusted over MAC shades for Christmas (the very beautiful Craving) I just couldn’t resist putting together a little ensemble of what I’ve been opting for this weekend…

Face Makeup Menu

Boots No 7 Beautifully Matte in Warm Ivory: My go to foundation. This is the only foundation that totally retains its fresh looking tone throughout the entirety of the day without fading, drying or going patchy. It keeps my oily T-Zone under control, all whilst feeling softy & velvety to touch.

Maybelline Super Stay 24 Hour Concealer in Fair: The only concealer (so far) that has really worked well without caking or drying. A must have for those who find most concealers either too heavy or alternatively slippy on the skin!

Make Up Revolution Hot Spice Blush Palette: This was sent to me as a tester sample, something that I’ve been itching to try… and it most certainly hasn’t disappointed. The colours are indeed subtle yet completely buildable. Ideal for pretty much all skin tones, it’s a beautiful selection of spicy shades to warm the complexion perfectly!

Eyes

Eye Makeup Menu

Make Up Revolution Iconic 2 Palette: This little eye shadow palette has absolutely gob smacked me. The colour pigmentation is incredible as is the longevity of wear. Shockingly, it’s super affordable yet really does give the high end rivals a run for their money. Combining a predominant mixture of shimmery metallic tones (along with a few complimentary earthy mattes) makes it a great palette for both day & night wear!

Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara in Black: One of my favourite mascaras at the moment, this formula leaves my lashes fluttery, separated yet adds lashings of length without  the dreaded clumping.

Billion Dollar Brows Best Sellers Kit: I’ve been trialing this kit quite a bit recently and have to say it has me utterly hooked. Never before have my brows looked so shapely & in such a natural form. The soft ashy tones work with both blondes and brunettes. Keep your eyes peeled for a full tutorial on the amazing kit that every brow fanatic needs in their makeup bag!

Lips

MAC Craving Lipstick

MAC Amplified Cream Lipstick in Craving: In my opinion this is pretty much a ‘my lips only MUCH better’ tone that is completely buildable to showcase a strong pop of playful pink or applied sparingly to keep a soft and natural lip shade that is perfect for everyday wear. The formula is incredibly comfortable & seems to mimic a feel that sits somewhere between matte & creamy… hence the longevity of a matte formula with the moisturising feel of a very slightly creamier texture. Gorgeous!

MAC Craving Makeup Menu

There you have it ladies, the finished look! For me, MAC Craving simply adds the perfect pop of pink that looks very slightly creamy but is super long lasting and incredibly complimentary to us gals sporting a slightly lighter complexion! Another new favourite to add to the collection 🙂
