A year ago MAC upgraded their store in Kaubamaja and this weekend I had an amazing opportunity to go and celebrate their anniversary with them. I had a play around with their new Nutcracker Sweet Collection and a free makeup session by their talented makeup artist Kaisa Koppel ( Instagram).
Kaisa has always been the main makeup artist in MAC who I’d turn to if I’m searching for something special. So you can imagine my excitement when it turned out that she’d be doing my makeup. We decided to go with a smokey eyeshadow look and use the new Nutcracker Sweet Warm Eyeshadow Compact. I asked her to do something different, as I tend to stick to browns and lilacy shades mostly. She created the whole eyeshadow look around this really nice mustardy shade in the palette, again not the shade that I’d even reach for. But it worked!
For the base we went with the Victoria’s Secret vibe, nicely bronzed and highlighted. And for the lips we went with something that isn’t even a slightest a wintery shade – peachy pink. 😀 It was just the shade I’ve been in a hunt for summer time and it tied the whole look together. Added some peachy blush and all was done!
Here’s the finished look. A bit gloomy one, but what can you do if the sun sets here around 3 in the afternoon. I wore this look for my besties birthday party and I must add that my makeup was on point the whole night. Usually I’d have to check my under eyes once in a while and add some powder on top. But not this time, so I was pleasantly surprised.
Many thanks to MAC for inviting me and to Kaisa, who did such a wonderful job!
