I just wanted to share with you some MAC face charts used on celebrities at the V Festival. :)

London, 22 August 2010 - M.A.C Cosmetics and the M.A.C Pro Team decamped to the renowned V Festival to keep a host of top celebrities, performers and guests looking refreshed from dusk until dawn! 
The M.A.C Pro Team were on hand to provide the ultimate festival makeup facilities for guests in the coveted  Virgin Media Louder Lounge area. Presenters Caroline Flack, Zara Martin, Bip Ling and Gemma Cairney,  singers Alexandra Burke, Pixie Lott, Beverly Knight  and  Girl  Band  Parade.   The  Only Way is Essex members,  Sam Faiers,  Billy Fiares,  Lauren Pope,  Joey Essex  and  Harry Derbidge also received the M·A·C treatment.  Actress Ophelia Lovibond, Olivia Hallinan and Actor Harry Tredaway and finally Model Daisy Lowe all visited the M·A·C tent in the Virgin Media Louder Lounge over the weekend for a festival makeup fix.

I stumbled upon these Maybelline 2-in-1 Impact Shadow Liner by Eyestudio at the mall, swatched them on my arms and then walked around a bit more. A few minutes later I tried to rub them of my hand and they didn't! They completely stayed put. I was so impressed. I returned to the counter and decided to pick out a few shades I would wear a lot, and I chose a shimmery white, Pearl White, and Chocolate Brown.

I've been on a purple eyeshadow kick lately, and I wanted to use some of my new products in a look. I used my Me Me Me Eyeshadow trio Elegant Eyes, which I have reviewed here, but have never worn it in a look until now. I also used the Etude House brow pencil which I adore, as well as the Maybelline Eye Studio Eye liner in Crystal White.

MAC Brow Pencils have been my HG brow pencil for some time now (2-3 years) until I met the Etude House Drawing Eye Brow Pencil. These come in a variety of shades, and I picked up the colour No 04

3 Reasons why I love it ♥

1. This is a dark grey colour, which works well on brows of people with black hair, without it looking too stark (unlike black itself). I used to use MAC Lingering brow pencil, which is a light brown, and although it was not so obvious from a far, looking at the brows closely, its a lot different from my eyebrow colour (unless I bleach my brows).

2. The unusual slanted and slightly arrow head-shaped tip. It makes it so much easier to line your eyebrows!
3. It's a swivel product and does not require any sharpening.

I'm wearing it here:

I would say the texture is quite hard and not at all soft, but it applies more smoothly compared to the MAC pencils. The pigmentation is just right not to make a harsh line but enough to apply visible product. I really love this. You should try it!

This has quickly made it to my list of Favourite Beauty Products here.

For some reason I've been wearing purple eyeshadow a lot recently, and I want to share this eyeshadow quad with you. This is Neutrogena's Nourishing Eyeshadow Quad in Moonlit Violet

What Neutrogena says:
New nutrient-infused Neutrogena® Nourishing Eye Quad shadow gives eyes a beautifully smooth, vibrant look. The Base shade protects with SPF 15 as antioxidant vitamins condition like never before. The Highlighter shade visually lifts the area under the eyebrows with a blend of micronized pearls, while the Crease and Accent shades give eyes depth and dimensions.
  • Nutrient-infused color illuminates and defines eyes
  • SPF 15 protects eyelids, while vitamins, silk, and soy condition skin so it's smoother and healthier
  • Crease and fade proof for beautiful wear
  • Available in 8 perfectly coordinated quad palettes
These eyeshadows are soft and have good payoff. I like how they are labelled Base, Crease, Highlighter and Accent, which can be useful to those just starting to get into makeup. The sponge tip applicator may also be useful, but I wouldn't be using it though as I feel my makeup brushes work better and are easier to clean!

I personally do not know how an eyeshadow can be 'nourishing', but I don't mind this palette. I think these eyeshadows do crease a bit and fade a little, but not that much different from standard eyeshadows.

This eyeshadow palette contains a satin pale pink, a frosty pale taupe, a semi-sparkly midtone violet and a semi-sparkly dark grey.

I wore this eyeshadow quad in my post here: 

I used the pale pink on the lid, midtone purple on the crease, light taupe as highlight, and black as a liner on the upper lash line.

I believe you can purchase this at your local or the website: http://www.neutrogena.com/product/nourishing+eye+quad.do

This is a pretty late post, but I'd like to share with you the makeup and outfit I wore on my birthday celebration - on the day after my actual birthday. It was a Sunday and therefore a bigger gathering was more feasible due to guests having breaks off work. I had so much fun meeting old friends.

Mini Hat Hairband Korea

Necklace Vintage

I felt like wearing this colourful number, and I wanted to match my makeup using some purples! :3
