FOTD: MAC Indulge Collection Make Up Look

I know that a new MAC release is supposed to be a big deal, people who aren't even in to make up get all giddy and excited over it. I don't. The promotional photos rarely ever appeal to me, they're totally unrelateable. So it came as a great surprise to me when I saw the promo snaps for the new Indulge Fall Collection.

The shot that really struck a chord with me had an amazingly pretty lady with a wash of yellow-gold eyeshadow and lashings of thick black eyeliner. It actually looks remarkably similar to what I've been sporting recently, very retro glam, think 60s! 

Obviously I couldn't just wait until MAC release the collection over here in the UK, I had to re-create the look. Like, now! I had a good old rummage through piles and piles of make-up and came up with this:







YSL Touche Éclat Foundation in BD50 (MAC equivelant NC37-NC40)
MAC Prep+Prime LoosePowder


Illamasqua Cream Blusher in Crush


Yellow Shade from the Sleek Ultra Matte Palette Bright V1 e/s
Urban Decay Half Baked e/s ( over Sleek's yellow shade )
Bourjois Little Round Pot in Beige Rose e/s ( Inner Corner Highlight )
Illamasqua Precision Gel Liner in Infinity
Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Kohl Liner in Nude ( Waterline )
Soap & Glory Thick & Fast Mascara


MAC Lipstick in Diva

Can you believe that I didn't use MAC on the eyes? It just goes to show how dupe-able products really are. Despite that, I still cannot wait to get my hands on Gilt Gourmet Fluidline and Just a Bite lipstick. I don't have anything like the Gilt Gourmet in my own personal collection, so I'm devastated that it's already sold out online! As soon as it hits the stores, I'm there. Buying ten.

In the promo photo the woman was wearing a nude lipstick - think 'concealer lips'. I'm sure she's wearing Smash Hit lipstick and I can imagine this looking quite flattering on paler skin tones, but I haven't even looked at a nude lipstick in years. I feel I've moved past that stage now, so I painted on my beloved MAC Diva. I just cannot stop wearing this shade lately - the sumptuous, warming dark burgundy feels strangely comforting as the cold, harsh winter approaches.

In other news, I must apologise for my lack of online activity recently. I've been working on a couple of projects and have been struggling to find a balance although I did manage to find my way to Paperchase to purchase a diary that will keep me organised. 

Me? Organised? Well... There's a first for everything ;)

I have lots and lots to post about, so stay tuned!
