Here's a blue and lavender look using products from the MAC Give Me Liberty of London collection. I quite liked it. Hope you do too! ♥

I used:

EYES
MAC Soft Ochre paint pot
MAC eyeshadows in Yogurt (highlight), Birds and Berries (lid), Bough Grey (crease), Carbon (outer V)
MAC Black Russian pearlglide liner (black)
MAC Spiked brow pencil
Maybelline Falsies mascara

FACE
MAC Select Moisturecover concealer
MAC MSF Natural
MAC Prim and Proper blush (lower half of cheek apples)
MAC Summer Rose beauty powder (upper half of cheek apples)
MAC Pearl cream colour base (highlight)

LIPS
MAC Blooming Lovely lipstick - blotted for a matte look (lip swatch below shows un-blotted)

Sorry about so many pictures! I got a little snap-happy this time :)

Birds and Berries turned out lighter blue than I expected, instead of a blue-green, which I don't like. It reminds me too much of Suave Intentions from last winter's Love Lace collection. Hmm.

And its the first time ever I've used my Carbon eyeshadow on myself! For you MAC-enthusiasts, this must be really strange, huh? I used it on my bf's Halloween look before, but I've never really used it on myself. I used to be really intimidated by it, and now, I think I'll be using it on the outer V more often. Its a lovely colour! A matte black. The texture's great too; if I'm semi-careful, I don't have to worry about applying too much!

Oh incase you didn't know, I always put my makeup on in the order that they're listed. So if you want to re-create this look, well, at least you know the order I applied them. Helps me too when I want to do it again :)

How do you feel about the larger face photos? Do you prefer this or the smaller ones? ♥

  5. Livia you are super stunning and i love your dress/top? fashion post please! LOL.

    I wanted to get blooming lovely but the silly woman in selfridges said I couldnt b2m on ltd edition items. This was a lie as I went to the carnaby street store and they said you can but it was sold out there..grrr. I was super annoyed that day.

    P.>S. Please dont forget to check out my mini giveaway, its open internationally too :)

    BIG love

  6. @Charlee- Thank you hun! x

    @Imo- Oh I'm sorry to hear that :( Selfridges MAC sucks :( I always go to the Harrods one for LE back to MAC's since they let you B2M for LE items and keep the packaging too! I was contemplating on doing a fashion post for what I'm wearing, but because of your request, I'll try! :)

    Thanks for reminding me of your giveaway xx

  9. This is such a pretty look! I love the eye makeup, I'm not too sure about the lavender lips but that may be because I don't really like the trend...I love the blush too, so pretty and glowy and fresh!
    How was your weekend? Hope you have a nice week! XO
