York - MAC Makeover and Haul.

MAC Makeover in York
MAC Studio Sculpt, Lashes and Impassioned Lipstick
H&M Glitter Bag

So this Friday, me and my boyfriend went to York to spend the day shopping, have a few tipples of alcohol and stay over in a hotel. I love getting away from where I live, especially to somewhere like York; It's got so much more character and not to mention, a hell of a lot of great shops and bars! My Mum was there on the morning and had booked me in to get a makeover in MAC so I went straight there and an absolutely lovely girl called Megan transformed me for our night out. I was so excited as I'd never had a proper 'makeover' before and it was great to learn some tips in applying makeup. She gave me a glowing bronzed look with a brown smokey eye and a bold lip - exactly what I like! The makeover taught me that I NEED to work on my eye shadow skills! So apart from getting my make-up done, eating lots and getting ridiculously drunk in the Evil Eye Lounge (my favourite place in the world), I also did a spot of shopping. Well, it'd be rude not to, wouldn't it?! Seem as though my city lacks in the shopping department, I took advantage of MAC and found some absolute treasures. *CAUTION: Photo heavy post* Here's some photo's of what I picked up and what I wore on our night out...

Studio Sculpt in NC20 - MAC // Eyelashes - MAC // 217 Eye shadow Brush - MAC // Lipstick in 'Impassioned' - MAC // White Pleated Blouse - Topshop // Disco Pant Dupes - Ark // Hologram Purse - H&M // Peach Shirt Dress - Deep

I finally have some cheap dupes of American Apparel's 'Disco Pants'! It sounds silly but I'm uber conscious about my thighs which have put me off buying a pair of these bad boys, but finally I feel comfortable enough to wear a pair. I couldn't resist all of my purchases, especially the hologram purse and the 217 brush! I hope it will swiftly bring my eye shadow skills along... Please excuse my 'shiny scar' in the last photo - hotel lighting was horrendous! Anyway, that's a wrap - If you get the chance to visit York, please do; It's beautiful! Do you like any of my purchases? What are your favourite MAC products? Thanks for reading, let me know!

  13. You look gorgeous!! I'm confused about these makeovers, I've heard you pay £30 for the hour and get £30 worth of products as well as the makeover itself? Is this what you got?
