Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and couples everywhere are going into a panic, what to buy? What to wear? Where to go? I suppose that’s one positive side of having no Valentine’s Day plans – no stress about what to do! But after countless tweets of me complaining that I did not have a Valentines, I got invited down to Selfridges in The Trafford Centre for a Mate Date makeover!
If you’ve ever been in any Selfridges you’ll know just how many makeup stores are there, and just how many brands there are to pick from! We got invited down to the Mac stand, and from the moment we arrived to the moment we left, all of the lovely Mac employees made us feel exceptionally welcome and we were joking around, singing, and laughing! My assigned MUA for the afternoon was the amazingly talented Jacqui (who you can check out on Insta right here!)
Jacqui and I clicked from the moment I arrived at the Mac counter, and when she asked me what I wanted I left the decisions completely up to her, 100% trusting her to make the right decisions, and she certainly did! Below are a few before, during and after pictures of the look which Jacqui created on me, and because she is a complete BAE she has even given me a product breakdown to share with you all, so you can certainly recreate this look yourself!!
– Lightful C Softening Lotion
-Essentials Oils Stick
-Fast Response Eye Cream
-Studio Fix Fluid NW20
-Mineralize Powder in “light plus”
-Jeremy Scott “Acoustica”
-Burgundy x9 Palette
– Lip Liner “Soar”
– Lipstick “Brave”
I would 100% recommend all the products that were used, with one that I just have to give an extra mention too. The Prolongwear concealer was incredible!! If you’ve followed me on Twitter you will know that I am always trying to find a way to cover up these horrific bags under my eyes (maybe I should sleep more, who knows) and I found it in the form of the Mac Prolongwear concealer!! It was amaaaaazing and completely transformed me from tired to normal in a matter of seconds!
Make sure that if you need your make up done for your Valentine’s Dates or your mate dates, that you head down to Selfridges and see what they can do for you! You’ll leave laughing, and smiling – and looking insane! Myself and my friend Lara had the best time there!!
