When I was in Copenhagen yesterday I went to one of the biggest department stores there called Magasin. At the MAC corner I was offered to try on a look with their Style Seeker collection. The whole thing was supposed to take 30 minutes, and since I wasn’t in a hurry I decided to give it a go.
Here’s what I looked like to start with.
The make-up artist who worked with me wasn’t very tall at all, so I had to bend down for her to reach my face.
She applied some of MAC’s famous Painterly Paint Pot on my lids, then smudged some black eyeliner along my lash line and applied some matte purple eyeshadow above my crease. She used the duo eyeshadow called Whims and Fancies from the Style Seeker collection. I must say that this particular eyeshadow didn’t seem to have the best quality, since there was a lot of fall out all over my face from it.
After every step she took with my make-up she kept asking me if I liked it. At first I trusted her completely. But after a while I noticed that she was a bit sloppy with blending out the make-up. At first I was kind of shy and agreed to everything, but then I realized that this was how I was going to look for the rest of the day. So eventually I had to make her redo my concealer and blush, because both of them were just sitting on top of my face, not flattering at all.
Here’s the end result:
The brows are a bit stronger than what I’m used to. She filled them in with the Omega eyeshadow. The lipstick used here is one of the MAC Style Seeker Mattene lipsticks called Fashion Nomad (it’s limited edition). The shade is pretty much pure orange. The finish is matte, but there is some lipgloss on top of it.
On my skin she used a tinted moisturiser called Studio Moisture Tint in Medium.
Looking at this photo above I still think that the blusher isn’t blended out properly. Maybe I’m just being fussy, though.
The Fashion Nomad lipstick was a actually the product that I liked the most. Great staying power!
All in all, even though I’m not crazy about this look, it was fun to try something new. After all, I never do my eye make-up using several shades and sculpting the crease.
