I totally didn't get a foundation when I had a MAC makeover on Saturday, I can get that any time! I just said do something dramatic with dark eyes as I was going out, so the makeup artist did toootally black eyes and bright coral cheeks with a red/coral lip. Also apologies for photos in the Bullring toilets! I just wanted to get some photos right after haha!
I did take some lashes but apparently they really have to be MAC ones that they use so I got a pair of theirs and got the blush and lipstick because they're limited edition! I've read on a few blogs that people weren't really fussed with the Surf, Baby! collection as the stand out colours are greens and oranges but everything else is coral, which is right up my street.
Also I used to wear a really orangey-red lip if I ever wore red lipstick, but since my hair is darker, I wasn't sure what to do! So I got Hibiscus, a rich coral-red that looks great with dark eyes and warm cheeks. The blush is a gooorgeous popping coral, much brighter in real life!
I'm not sure how to use this as the gold shimmer is just an overlay so will use up quite quickly. I might swirl a bit in so the blush has a little shimmer for now, as the gold is a bit too yellow for a highlight.
These are swatches of the lipstick and then blush, the shimmer, and both swirled together (top-bottom).
So check out the collection if you love corals, I hope it gets more love! The blush is sold out online and I got one of the last ones at that counter, but I'm sure there are a few more floating around.
