Hello Pretties and Happy New Year!
If you follow me on snapchat prettyandp or on Instagram prettiesandpearlsblog than you would have seen I went on a mini makeup shopping spree inside Brown Thomas the other day! One of my Christmas presents this year was a voucher for Brown Tomas. Like many of you girls, I have a list as long as my arm of all the makeup products I want to buy but don’t have the funds to buy!
So, what did I buy??
MAC Strobe Cream is a base/primer used to illuminate the skin. I was a makeup model a few weeks ago and the makeup artist used this as a base on my skin for every look and I was hooked! It makes your skin glow through your foundation brightening your face. Its just so fab! Plus for only 10 euro you cant go wrong.
MAC prep and prime spray can be used on top of your strobe cream. Just a light spritz on the face, and again when your makeup look is complete another light spray to set the look. You can also spray your beauty blender or your eye shadow brushes to help boost the pigment in the shadows and setting your makeup.
Laura Mercier Foundation and Translucent Loose Setting Powder
These were my two big spenders. Foundation coming in at 48 euros and setting powder at 42 this was a 90 euro decision so I wanted to make sure I was making the right choice. The shade I went for is 1w1 Ivory this is the shade of my normal, untanned skin. The foundation is supposed to be 15 hour wear and the loose powder I have seen just about every top beauty blogger use. So far I am loving them both but I’ll have to get back to you will a proper review after a few weeks using these two.
Happy New Year Everyone! Let me know if you use any of these products or if you decide to try any of them! Aoibhinn xxxx
