Buff Make Up Masterclass with Maighread - Julie's Diary - Week 16

Hey all πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹

Its week 16 yipeeeeeeeee!!! πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ

I’m up in Mint again, I know... I may as well move in at this stage lol πŸ˜‚πŸ‘

Anyhoooo.... this weeks appointment was gonna be FUN!!! πŸ˜„ I was booked in for a Mint Make-up Masterclass with Maighread (yes that’s a Mouthful of MMMMM’s πŸ˜‚)

I decided to do the masterclass as I was looking for some hints and tips on how to do my own makeup and wanted to get up to date on the most recent trends.

As I settled myself in to Mints fabulous makeup bar, My jaw was literally on the floor with the huge selection of products that Maighread had laid out for us to play with.... serious excitement!! 😱

Mint is a stockist of Buff professional Makeup range. Buff is a fantastic multi award winning Irish company which is fastlygathering a cult following having picked up an IMAGE beauty award, Irish Tatler award, RSVP magazine beauty award and the Social and Personal best buys..... Fab!!! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

After I had finished drooling over all of the amazing colours πŸ‘…, we got started on an everyday daytime look. Maighread explained in detail as she applied the amazing Buff products to my face, stopping from time to time to allow me to do it myself, under her guidance. This way, I really get a feel for what to do and by practicing it myself, I was able to remember all the tips so much easier for when I went to do it at home myself. πŸ‘πŸ‘

For the daytime look we used the Buff HD foundation to suit my skin tone with a little β€œSheer Glo” liquid highlighter (which is aaaaaamazeballs by the way!) to give a natural dewy look, we filled in my brows a little and then smudged just a little black pencil on the upper lash line and used a GORGEOUS brown shadow called β€œHefner” (this is literally my new favourite!!!) on the lid and a little on the lower lashline. We finished with a little bronzer on the cheeks, a swish of mascara and some subtle lippie and we were done. This look will be a super easy one for me to re-create myself. πŸ‘ŠπŸ‘Š

Next it was on to the night time look and we really amped it up for this one!! Maighread started by building up the colours on my eyelids and blending it out. She loves colour, so we went for a twist on the smokey eye and used a fab cranberry coloured red in the crease and wow did it make my eyes pop immediately!!! πŸ‘€

I then chanced my arm at the gel eyeliner... now this normally scares the bejaysus out of me 😨 You know yourselves... when you’ve spent aaages trying to perfect your eyeshadow and then it’s time for the β€œdreaded eyeliner” and you end up with your line nearly up as far as your eyebrows by the time you finally get both eyes to look remotely similar lol!!! πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

But, with maighreads help I actually managed to get a half decent line! Yay!!! 😊

 She then done some contouring, a little blush and finished by lining my lips and giving them a slick of a gorgeous red lipstick called β€œLip Love” (another one of my favourites from the day!!) And that was it, I was all glammed up and ready to go!! πŸ˜™πŸ˜™

I have to say, the masterclass is a brilliant idea and I really really enjoyed it! 😊 It’s a fun, one on one makeup tutorial that gives you a step by step guide on make-up looks and at the end of it all you are left with your make up done and you go home with lots of tips and a bit more confidence in doing it yourself. Whether you’re already a pro at it or if you’re just learning, you will definitely come away with something from it! πŸ‘πŸ‘

Ask the girls in Mint about it and they will be happy to help.

You can also book in as a group. Perfect for a girls day out!! πŸ‘­πŸ‘­

That’s all from me for this week,

Hope you guys enjoyed reading and I’ll see you all soon 😊😊😊

Bye for now πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹
