MAC Cosmetics Master Class: Eyeliner Focus

This rainy week, caused a lot of hectic rescheduling but I manage to attend the MAC Cosmetics Master Class: Eyeliner Focus. We learned lots of things happening with the eyeliner, focusing on spring trends hitting the runway this season. The big portion of class was technique, how-to do the latest wing eyeliner, more focus on big eyeliner, think of 50s and 60s liner, but now incorporating into the outer portion of the eyelid as well into the crease.  Adding pop of color into the bottom waterline and to be more bold with spring colors. A metallic green, purple, and even blue were showcased. 

I had so much learning these techniques. I can't wait to try out some of these techniques on myself and clients. 

Below is our model to showcased the key points in this class.

Self-taught Acrylic Nails

Working my way to start doing nails, I really like doing nails. But not those extreme creations, I want nails looking nice. My mother kindly, gave up her nails and trust in me to do them right. I've come a long way. At first I really couldn't grasp the acrylic consistency. I think it was the brushes and the acrylic-challenged mind. But now, I can say I can start doing nails. I've been getting better with each set, I've done. I grab friends and family and get started!

Once, I get some confidence and skill I will do another status update.

Bulk Makeup Wipes, can't have enough!

Volcanic Ash Exfoliate- I've been dying to try this and it doubles as mask.

In Extreme Lash Mascara- The mascara I love using for everyday and a couple of more coats, for days I don't want to wear lashes.

Cold Comfort Creme- A cream that does the job, without adding more oil to face and keeping it hydrated during winter months
