Need a Makeup Makeover?

I was at the mall on Saturday and I just needed to pick up some new lip liner and mascara, but MAC was launching their new "Fafi" line and doing some fun makeovers so the guy helping me offered to do my eyes. I had just had my eyebrows waxed and didn't have any eye makeup on (which is probably why he offered). I was more than happy to let somebody else do my makeup for me. I love to see what fun things they will do. Plus, it's always fun to learn some new techniques. If you've never done it before, you've got to have a professional do your makeup for you!

I ended up getting this color palette. I love these colors together. Aren't they fun?


Also, I normally buy Estee Lauder's "More Than Mascara," but the guy helping me talked me into trying this mascara. I am very picky about mascara. Everything else I've tried I have not liked as much as Estee Lauder's, but so far this mascara has been great! It washes off very easy, which is an absolute priority for me. Plus, it goes on great. I also love that it comes in a squeeze tube so that you can get more out of it.


When I was looking at MAC's website, I noticed that they had a ton of different examples of makeup "looks." It shows you a picture (like the one below) and tells you exactly how to achieve the look. If you didn't want to go to the store and get a makeover you could do your own makeover at home. I thought this was so fun because I have a ton of different colors at home, but I would love to find new ways to use them. Check out the link below:

I love MAC makeup, especially their Mascara, I think you'll like it. I have their Gentle Fume Eyes Shadow X4. Its a little too dark for me, but I love the colors you have.

You'll have to let me know when you are wearing your new colors. I actually could probably really use a professional makeover. I don't really change my makeup very often.

I love that color pallete. I might have to take some time out and head over to Nordstrom. We don't have one in Memphis. Crazy! The idea of the squeeze tube is great too. I love putting eyeshadow on after I've had my eyebrows waxed. I seriously look forward to putting my makeup on.

I have been to several of the MAC make up events and classes I LOVE MAKE UP! Especially MAC I love their glosses eyeshadows etc but I don't like their mascara I have found DIOR mascara from Sephora and I LOVE IT! Better than Lancome, MAC, any others I have tried! I almost bought this pallet on Friday! FUNNY!

Someday, I will learn how to do my eye make-up like a professional. That's my goal anyway!! I always love makeup tips, and your post makes me want to try some new colors. I'm not very daring that way. Thanks for the inspiration!

Thanks for sharing Brittany. I fell in LOVE with MAC a couple years ago...(jarod wishes I didn't know what it was) I had no idea that you could download different templates.

I just wanted to let you know, that you look AMAZING! (I am positive you don't need make-up) You are a glowing prego mommy that is for sure!

p.s. Love the update on organization. I actually might be teaching some organization ideas to our relief society...I have a couple, but you are the QUEEN! If you have any ideas that you think would be GREAT to share, can you e-mail them to me?? (I am already planning on sharing your closet ideas for the boys)

Thanks,

Fun! I love the colors. I would never dare by them. I need professional help. The MAC guy wasn't a flamboyantly (SP?) gay black guy named Cheron from Alabama was he?
