Work ball & makeup consult with MAC

Well., it was my first time going to the MAC counter to get my makeup done., and I LOVED it. Was quite nervous as I went there with absolutely NO makeup on. Plus the fact I don't have the most perfect skin. I am a long sufferer of acne since my teenage years. However I braved the shiny Smith & Caughy building to meet my makeup appointment.

I got to sit right in the corner which was a relief. No one wants to sit right where everyone is walking past and can gork at you while you're having your makeup done. It's more like that when you get your makeup done at the Bobby Brown counter. I have nothing against Bobby Brown, I think their makeup is gorgeous, its just their counter is not as private as the MAC one. (I am speaking only about the Smith & Caughy building on Queen St).

Since my makeup was for a formal evening event I thought I'd go hardout with the makeup. Why the hell not. It was a little more out there than I would have done myself, but the MAC makeup artist did an awesome job. I love the colours she used on me. It was a dark blue, but it was a mineralised eyeshadow which gave off a lovely iridescent appearance. Not sparkly but had a slight shimmer. It's gorgeous. Obviously I took that home with me with the $90 I put down as a deposit.

The foundation that they used on me was really nice too. Very moisturising which is what I love because I suffer from very dry skin even though I get pimples. So it was great. The foundation left my skin feeling dewy and didn't budge either.

I also had fake lashes put on. Which were awesome by the way but were soooo expensive! they were like $45 or something crazy. I probably wouldn't do that if I went again. Just too expensive. They were awesome though.

With the rest of my deposit I also bought the select cover concealer in NW25. I now use this concealer everyday. Its pretty good at concealer my under eye area and also blemishes.

Overall I found the experience to be alot of fun. Its definately worth it if you want to try out some MAC makeup and are not sure where to start or what to buy. I would definately do it if you are going to an event of somesort so that the makeup application is not wasted. Its something I think every girl should have the chance to do at least once!

And here is a pic of me in my outfit! Hope you like.

And here's a pic of the makeup. Please excuse my eyebrows! I forgot to shape them before hand. FAIL. I guess that's something you can learn from me!

Hope this is helpful to someone! :-)


Morrocan Oil

Ok so I found out about this stuff after getting my hair cut at Vada Salon here in Auckland. Which by the way is a friken awesome salon! If you can afford it , its so worth it! The only reason I decided to go there was because I had a voucher to go for a cut, colour & treatment all for $80 which I thought was such a great deal :-).

And it was! I loved my colour and my cut. awesome.

Anyway it was there I was reading about this Morrocanoil in one of their magazines while my colour was processing. And I thought it sounded interesting. Now I don't know if it was planned but Vada also stocks this product and they used it on my hair after it was washed. (Co-incidence? I'm not sure lol. But the was very wise if it was all planned coz I was totally sold! haha) Let me tell you, this stuff is AWESOME. Now I can't say how well it works for those with thin hair., mine is fairly thick (relatively normal thickness) and it just makes your hair feel so soft and healthy! It smells damn good too. It doesn't come cheap though., I think I got 200ml for about NZD$60 or so. But omg., its the bomb. I really do recommend it, especially if you have dry, colour damaged hair like I do.

If you visit my "about me" tab, the photo of me there is right after I had my hair done at Vada. I have not been able to get it so nice ever since haha. Awesome Salon, but it also shows how the Morrocanoil can make your hair lovely and shiny. Of course the straightening helps as well.

You can also feel good about purchasing this product as they use recycled materials in their packaging and do not test on animals.

So yeah., anyway check out the website here. They have a range of different products but my stylist used the oil treatment on my hair. It's supposed to restore shine, strengthen and condition and I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT... I also saw they got a mention on the Rachael Ray show haha. I was like, hey I have that stuff! Cool!

Anyway that is my post for this week. Hope its helpful so someone :-) I know its not strictly makeup related but now and then I will be posting about other beauty products that I find work for me so hope you still enjoy it too :-)
Have an awesome weekend!
