Glam Session with MAC Cosmetics at Gulf Mall!!


Hope you are having a fantastic week. Summer has finally hit Doha and the city is slowly gearing up for prayerful Ramadan. The kids and I, we’ve been treading along, between school runs and plentiful projects – it’s been pretty hands on!

MAC Next To Nothing

Last week I was invited by MAC cosmetics at Gulf mall to try their Makeup services – which is absolutely spectacular! You can book yourself an appointment and get all the expert makeup help you need – from basics to smokey-eye magic it’s well worth a visit.  After much pondering I decided to seek some Mac-Pro hacks into creating the Ultimate No-Makeup Look.

Skin Prep

The MUA started by prepping the skin with their complete comfort crème, followed by MAC Prep & Prime Fix plus.For the base we deiced to use the newest launch from MAC Cosmetics their Next To Nothing foundation.

For the Base Makeup

Next To Nothing Pressed Powder in Medium Deep

Before applying the foundation she used the MAC studio Conceal and Corrector DUO(burnt orange/rich yellow) for  my under eyes and the dark spots. I am an NC42 in MAC the so Next to Nothing in Medium plus was a perfect match for me. She also used Mineralise concealer in NC42 to brighten the under eyes. This was set with the Next to nothing setting powder again in medium plus and some setting powder for the under eyes to prevent it from creasing.

James Kaliardos-Moons of Saturn

For the contour/highlight and blush the MUA went with the MAC makeup art cosmetics James Kaliardos spring summer collection full face set in Moons of Saturn an absolutely brilliant piece and my personal favorite from this collection. On top of this contour we also used Mac Mineralize skin Finish powder in medium deep to give a sharper chilled look. Since it no makeup look we dint contour the nose. The highlighter from this palette was amazing and absolutely on fleek ;)

MAC Eyeshadow x 15 Warm Neutral Palette

Next for the eyes the first step was to use their paint pot as groundwork to give it a more natural finish and for the eyeshadows to stay in place. The palette we used for the look is the Eyeshadow X 15 Warm Neutral Palette.From that palette she used Rule and saddle as the transition color and brown down on the outer corner.Also used dark brew on the lids along with Amber lights.We used one of their best seller fluid line in backtrack to line the upper eyelid, we dint go for a heavy look as it was no makeup makeup look. For the lower lash line we used a little bit of brown down and for the inner corner we used honey lust. This was topped with MAC mineralize Multi effect lash charged black. I love-love-love this mascara. It gives much va-va-vroom to for your lashes.

For the eyebrows we used the brow pencil in shade brunette and to set it we used quiet brunette prolong wear waterproof brow set. Also used the prep and prime to clean/highlight for under the eyebrows and the temple.

MAC Double Shot + Mac Pro long wear Lip Pencil Morning Coffee

Before we started with the makeup weMUA applied lip Conditioner in my lips. For the lips we used prolong wear lip pencil in morning coffee, shaped and filled the lips and then applied double shot lipstick over it. I love this lip combo, something I can wear every day. Final step was to use the setting spray fix plus so that the makeup stay put.
