Like fashion trends with clothing, there are also fashion trends when it comes to make-up.
So I spent the day with make-up artist, Raf Manosca at the MAC store in Rockwell.
Raf has been a make-up artist for MAC Cosmetics for 3 years now and he definitely taught me a few new tricks.

Firstly when it comes to make-up I’m not really the type to wear much, so for today he did a look on me that I would not usually do on myself – heavy eyeliner with a drastic bold lip!  If you’ve been keeping up with your fashion trends you would of noticed this dark lip craze hitting the run way during fashion week.  This global glamour look is more so for events, nights out and shows.


The 2 products that I fell in love with while Raf did his make-up tutorial with me were, Pro-ling wear foundation which is sweat proof and water resistant which leaves you with a real natural soft finish.  And then the pink tone concealer he used for my under eye that cancel out dark circles.  When it comes to concealer here are two tips to remember;
– pink toned concealer covers dark circles
– yellow/green toned concealer cover red blemishes   


But I’m not expert so treat yourself and attend a workshop.  They are seasonal so if you are wanting to stay on top of your make-up trends just pop into any MAC store and ask any of the lovely artists.  They are such good value for money!! Or you can have a One-on-One tutorial In-store by appointment.

Beauty comes from within.
