I've changed my blog contact email, as some of my emails were going missing and I had no idea til I was told later...I'm guessing it might be the spelling "watercolour" that may be causing issues...not sure. But just to be safe, I've changed it to something completely different: spicysalmonroll [at] gmail [dot] com.
Also here's an update on my blogsale - if you buy anything between now and Oct 10 (a week from now) you get 20% off your order!
Here's a couple of questions from my previous post:
Chi asked if the Korres Guava lipsticks were hydrating - no actually they are a bit on the dry side, so you definitely need to have lip balm on underneath.
Alienman asked if I have any lip exfoliators I'd recommend - I usually just use a bit of my face exfoliator (Clarins Gentle Exfoliating Refiner / aspirin honey mask) if needed. I'm sure a bit of homemade sugar scrub + honey would work just as well too :)
The past few weeks have been a bit of an emotional rollercoaster ride for me...so I guess I haven't really felt like blogging or even putting on a full face of makeup. But anyway I'm going on vacation mid-Oct (less than 2 weeks yay :)) so hopefully things will be better once I get a chance to unwind a bit. I do apologize for my absence and thank all those who still check for new posts!
In any case here's a makeover I got at MAC a while back...using products from the Makeup Art Cosmetics collection and Starflash:
I think the cheeks are overdone in my opinion, I blame the Cheek and Cheerful mineralize blush she used on me. At first she only used The Perfect Cheek, which was fine, and then asked me if I wanted her to use a highlighter. Should've said no to that.
In any case the base makeup was done well. Lipcolour was Shy Girl cremesheen lipstick.
The eyeshadow blending was pretty good. I had asked her for a smokey eye but emphasized that I didn't want heavy liner all around:
I think the eyeshadow colours she used here were Vex to highlight and on inner corner, Smoke and Diamonds on outer 2/3 of eyelid, and some Carbon in the crease to darken.
Brun was used to fill in the eyebrows, Blacktrack fluidline to line. I loved that she asked me if I usually curled my lashes, and because I said yes she curled them. In all the makeovers I've ever done the makeup artists NEVER use a lash curler, probably because its hard to use it on someone else (or maybe to save time). Major points for her for doing that :)
Next up - a quick review of the Korres Mango lipstick
