Continuing from my previous blog, I’ve swatch the three new lipsticks on my wrist and fairly pigmented lips to provide insight on how the shade may look on medium to tan skin/south east Asian warm tone complexion.
I only wore a hydrating serum + lotion, so my face is really bare.
For reference: I normally wear Natio’s BB cream in ‘TAN’ and this matches my neck. I have dark brunette hair and dark brown hooded eyes.
I’ve been eyeing some nude MAC lipsticks and knew I was going to buy at least 3 which would have cost $108. At the time, I also had an event on in the next couple of weeks so thought, hey – why not get a make over, which is $95 AUD and redeemable by purchasing products. Win – Win.
I booked an appointment over the phone at my local MAC pro store and to my delight, they had an appointment at 4pm on the date of the event. Normally, you would have to booked at least 3 weeks in advance because they’re so busy so I was extremely lucky.
Day of make over: It took about an hour for the artist to complete my look. I had asked for medium to full coverage, a rosy lid, wing eye liner, bold brows and nude lips.
The artist used:
Base/face – essential oil + strobe cream for hydration, Prep + prime skin for the primer, Pro longwear spf 10 foundation, bronzing powder, pinch me blush, soft and gentle highlighter and pro longwear concealer
Eyes: fluid line for eyeliner, Great brows kit for brows, eyeshadow palette x 9 burgundy for shadow,
Lips: hip n happy lip liner + peachstock lipstick + angel lip glass
I opted to not get lashes as I had my go to lashes at home and I prefer to apply them.
I ended up changing from peachstock to shy girl (left: peachstock Right: Shy girl + false lashes)
