My mac lipstick collection

I wanted to do a post on all my mac lippies as I knew that it would be helpful to those of you who are searching for swatches, or even maybe if you are looking to purchase a new mac lipstick but you don't know what to buy. As I had so many to swatch I made two videos, so I've done a video on my nude shades and one on my more colourful ones.
Did you see any lipsticks that you might want to purchase?

My concealers

Now I've not tried a ton of concealers, the ones you see here are pretty all that I have ventured to give a go. However I really love the ones that I have and thought I'd share them with you all :)

The first one is the Mac studio finish concealer (NC50) which is pretty full coverage, so It's great for hiding all my annoying blemishes and cleaning up round my brows. I initilly bought it as an undereye concealer but I found to be just too heavy for that task. As you can see its well loved and I'm very close to hitting pan!
Mac Select cover-up (NC50) does a great job of concealing under my eyes, I'd say its medium converage so its not too heavy and blends in like a dream.

I use these two Eyes lips face (E.L.F)  products to lighten under my eyes. I add the E.L.F tone correcting concealer (Medium) to my select cover up as it lightens it up really well. You really can't use this on its own as you will look ashy, and we all know that's never a good look. The same goes for the E.L.F mineral concealer (Warm), this I don't use as much, when I want super light kim K looking under eyes then I'll reach for it. I use it with a big fluffy blending brush and pat it under my eyes. Be warned though, as a little goes a long way with this stuff!
Have you tried any of these? What are your go to concealers?

Greener pastures makeup tutorial

 One of my subscribers had requested this green and yellow look. These aren't colours that I would usually choose to use, however I enjoyed the challenge :)

Lipstick and blush

I've had these images on my laptop for a while now, I wanted to make a beauty tab for my fashion blog so I took a bunch of photos of some of my lipsticks and blushes. I actually ended up using some of these picture for my header if you look closely:). So I'm clearing out some of my files and thought it would be a great idea to post these pics here before they're deleted.

The polish files: Barry M peach Melba

{image taken with flash}
If you don't have this colour in your collection, then you need it asap, it's too pretty to not own! Its a beautiful peach colour that honestly suits everyone I've seen wear it. The formulation is a bit runny, but that's the case with a lot of barry Ms lighter more pastel shades, it takes a bit of working with but the end result is worth it.
What do you think of this shade?
