I think one of my goals always is to get better at make up and for a while I'd been thinking about booking a class or something along those lines. So when my work's Christmas party came up I decided to book myself in with an artist to get it done professionally.
My ultimate favourite make up brand has always been Mac. Ever since I was younger and obsessed with Christina Aguilera and she collaborated with them for Viva Glam, its always been an iconic brand for me and optimises great make up.
So I booked myself and the girl who did my make up was super friendly and asked me loads of questions about what I wanted and what I was wearing so it would compliment it. I had a pretty strong image in my head of what I wanted as I spent about 2 weeks obsessing about my look for the night.
It took less than an hour and I absolutely loved the finished look. The great thing was that with Mac is, it costs £40 but you get that back to spend on products, so I bought Studio Fix foundation, Kinda Sexy matte lipstick and also a set of eyelashes which I wore for the night.
