Review // Mac Rubenesque Paintpot // MOTD

Hi guys!

Just a quick post today as I’m not feeling too good! I had to have a play with my new Mac paintpot in the shade rubenesque, its so gorgeous!


I used it as a base for a golden shadow (Half-baked in Urban Decays Naked 2) and I can’t get over how beautiful it looks!


Sorry for how rough I look! I’ve got a migraine on the way bit I but I had to share how beautiful this combination looked!

I love the smooth texture of the paintpots and the way that they really give life to the shadows that you put on top.

What do you guys think?

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend!

Makeup of the Day – Work Style!

Hi Guys

So todays MOTD is a look that is usually my go-to look for work, some may call it my no makeup-makeup look! 

For this look I used two new products from my drug store haul the other day with amazing results.  Firstly the MUA baked highlighter, this highlighter is off the scale, its amazing, so cheap £3!  The next product was the MUA brow mascara in mid brown, this gave me a really full but natural brow look which is still on 12 hours later at 6pm.

Sorry for the bathroom shot, my husband was still asleep when I took this! 

Products Used

  • Foundation – Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation
  • Concealer – Mac Pro Longwear Concealer
  • Powder – Mac Prep and Prime Translucent Setting Powder
  • Blush – Benefit Dandelion
  • Bronzer – Benefit Hoola
  • Eyeshadow – Naked 2 Palette
  • Brows – MUA Brow Mascara
  • Mascara – Benefit They’re Real 
  • Lips – Mac Whirl Lipliner and Mac Twig Lipstick
  • Highligher – MUA Baked Highlighter

Brushes used are the Real Techniques brushes, the NARS Ita brush, and the Beauty Blender ❤

This is the product shot (Minus the Benefit Bronzer/Blush)! The only difference is that I changed the highlighter to the MUA one as the Revolution on wasn’t very pigmented.

Can we just take a minute to adore this highlight… £3 really.



Heres an out-take from yesterdays eyelash tutorial which includes lovely Apollo trying to eat the eyelashes! ❤
