If the Snapchat messages are anything to go by, an absolute ton of you want to know about the makeup products that were used to create my look for my Limerick workshop on Sunday.
Below I have listed all the products that were used by an extremely talented Limerick make-up artist, Fiona McNamara.
I first met Fiona last month at the Limerick wedding fair and was so impressed by her results that I booked her right there and then to do my makeup for the workshop. I also asked her to take care of my sister Katie’s makeup as she was going to be my on-stage model for the demos.
Normally, I do my own makeup as I am SUPER fussy, but after seeing Fiona’s work at Wedding’s Live – I knew I was in good hands, and I was DYING to try the airbrush foundation that she is an expert in!
For more details, read on!
Concealer & Foundation:
First, Fiona applied a little concealer to my face using MAC’s Pro Long Wear Concealer in the shade NC20.
Once it was blended in, she sprayed on the foundation using a machine! I genuinely did not know what to expect from this and to be honest, I was a bit dubious of it…ok very dubious! I just assumed the foundation would look very wet and unblended-looking. Well I couldn’t have been more mistaken!
The result actually left me stunned! The foundation was flawless, almost as though my skin had been airbrushed (hence the name Airbrush HD Foundation!)
The spray is so super lightweight that you can barely even feel it as it’s being applied. In fact, it’s probably more accurate to describe it as being like a very light mist. Either way, after having experienced it myself, I’m definitely now a huge fan of this technique! It’s perfect for brides too because it’s so long lasting and doesn’t require any touch-up’s.
Contour & Blusher:
To contour and highlight, Fiona used MACnificent Me Sculpt & Shape, before then adding some colour to my cheeks using MAC Blusher in the shade ‘peaches‘.
After setting my foundation with MAC’s Prep+Prime Translucent Powder, Fiona dusted on a little Sparkling Dust from Inglot (in the shade No.2). I have long been a huge fan of the Sparkling Dust. In fact, I even featured it as one of my Top 5 Highlighters last year.
It’s such a great product and one I always have in my makeup bag.
EYE’S & LIPS
To prep the lid, Fiona applied Urban Decay’s Eye Primer in the shade ‘original’.
Eye-shadow & Eye Liner
For my eyes, Fiona primarily used shades from the MAC Eye Shadow Palette – warm neutral. She started by applying “dark brew” on base of the eye, followed by the shade “saddle” both in the crease and underneath eye. She then blended it out with the shade “rule”. Next she used Inglot no.395 on the brow bone and in the corner of the eye.
The liner Fiona used was Inglot’s gel liner no.77 which she applied on both the upper lid and lower waterline. This is a brilliant liner and one I use myself on occasion. In 2013, I featured it as one of my Top 5 Eye Liners, and even now, two years on, it’s still one of my favourites!
On the lid, Fiona applied my SOSU Lashes, and for dramatic effect, she added a few Salon Professional fake lashes to my lower lid.
When styling and shading my brows, Fiona used MAC’s Eyebrow Pencil in the shade ‘spiked’, and ELF’s Brow Palette in medium brown.
Fiona lined my lips using MAC’s Nice+Spicy lip pencil. She then painted on a MAC lipstick in the shade Kinda Sexy, before following it with a touch of gloss.
