My 5 MAC Hearts | Zahra

*Barbie voice* 'Oh I love you MAC!'

Top to bottom:

5. Shanghai Spice:
To this day, it's still my only Mac lippy, but I am planning to expand on it (that is if Topshop doesn't bring out more shades...)
The colour of this is more of a 'your lips but better' colour on me as my lips are quite's a sheeny, shiny nude-y/ peach colour (creamsheen finish), perfect for all skintones I reckon because it's not too pale or nude or opaque. I like to wear this when I've gone a bit more peach/brown/heavy on the eyes.

4. Woodwinked eyesadow:
Probably one every eyeshadow lover's favourite eyeshadows. I wrote a little review of it HERE.
It's a shimmery 'suits all' gold colour, with the perfect amount o gold in it-it's more on the warm side, but it doesn't look like you're ill at all, also with a bit of blending, you've got yourself a pretty quick, subtle smokey eye.

3. Bare Study Paint Pot:
This and 'Satin Taupe' are my everyday colours.
I've actually done a whole review on this if you want to see it HERE.
It's a shimmery, champagne that looks super pretty on it's own, or paired with other eyeshadows.

2. Satin Taupe eyeshadow:
I love this eyeshadow to bits- it's quite shimmery, but not glittery and is like the perfect shade for this season, hence why I wear it everyday. It's a grey/purple/taupe sort of colour, and I think this looks so pretty on darker skintones.

1. Studio Finish Concealer:
Lastly, my most used and loved Mac product that I couldn't go a week without (I've gone several days without using it). The concealer. The shade I'm in is NW25 which I only use under my eyes as it's too orange (I reckon I'm probably an NW20 all over the face)- I can use it all over the face in the late summer though.
This has the best coverage ever - paired with the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer and any foundation, you've got yourself some flawless skin. It blends out so easily and gives a full opaque coverage (it basically covers up my horrid dark circles), although I will warn you that it hasn't got the best look on dry skin

Ant MAC recommendations?

The Most Gorgeous Quad- Charlotte Tilbury 'The Vintage Vamp' | Zahra the prettiest thing I have ever laid my eyes on

Typical for my phone not to pick up the purple....'Pur'fect

Why so dead?

Why do my fingers look so short :,)
Lets just appreciate the rose gold packaging (I have an addiction to rose gold), and then look at the colours.
The pigmentation of these are incredible, I manged to create a very natural smokey eye (which WAS in fact purple-y but my phone doesn't have the best front-facing camera) but it looked SO SO pretty and I'm super excited to wear this look during the Autumn/Winter.
I used the lighted shade all over my lid, then the lighter purple in my crease, the darker purple on my lower lashline and the gold patted in the center of my lid.

Story time
My sister bought me this palette on her birthday: we were in the Bullring in Birmingham and obviously Selfridges wasn't going to be left out. For her birthday, I bought her Mac's 'Ruby Woo' and she then asked me what I wanted so I panicked and said Charlotte Tilbury. I have no regrets of panicking. We were originally going to go half and half for it, then she decided to pay for it as it was my birthday exactly 3 weeks later (I had to live with the torture of it being wrapped up in my room for 3 weeks-it was painful). It took a pretty long time for me to choose between this and 'Dolce Vita' but you can clearly see which one I chose.

What else is on me...
Rimmel 'Wake Me Up' foundation- 'Soft Beige'
Collection 'Lasting Perfection' concealer-medium cool
Mac 'Studio Finish' concealer (under my eyes)- NW25
Nars 'Orgasm' multiple stick thing

Charlotte Tilbury: 'The Vintage Vamp'
Collection brown eyeliner
Rimmel 'Retro Glam' mascara
(eyebrows)- that brown colour in the Sleek 'Storm' palette

Topshop 'Chuck' sheer lips (blotted slightly)

Primark (only £6 as well!!)

*I you're wandering why I look so tired, it's because I had a very eventful day in London before I took these photos :)*
