Last night I attended the MAC event, in association with the Arqiva British Academy Television Awards. MAC have been announced as the official Makeup Partner to the BAFTAs for the 9th year running, and MACs Senior Artist Cher Webb showed us two key looks for the evening and how to achieve them.
During the event, a number of MAC products were used to create first a natural look with a simple eye and nude lip and then a second more glamourous look, including a deep orange lip and a darker, smokey eye.

Model Drew is absolutely gorgeous, and she was the perfect beauty to demonstrate the looks on. As soon as Cher used the Prep + Prime Skin Brightening Serum on her clean skin, I knew I was sold. I can’t wait to get this product as it looks incredible and made such a difference to her skin.
Cher gave us some simple yet great tips to achieve a flawless, natural look and I can’t wait to try so many of the products that she used as she really is amazing.

Cher used MAC Face and Body foundation with Pro Longwear concealer as her base. On Drews eyes she applied Groundwork paint pot with Arena Eyeshadow, before using Lord it Up eye pencil smudged through the top and bottom lash line. On the lashes, which were first curled, MAC False Lash mascara was applied.
Once the eyes were finished, MAC Lustre Drops in Pink Rebel was gently applied to Drews cheekbones and nose, before buffing Cremeblend blush in Something Special lightly into cheeks.
On the lips, Boldly Bare lip pencil was applied as a base, before using Pro Longwear Lip Creme in To The Future over the top.

For the second look, Cher simply added to the first look – she applied Feline Eye Kohl pencil all over the lash line, and then used Pro Longwear Eyeshadow in Make Your Mark all over the lids. MACs #3 Lashes were then used for extra drama.
Finally, Pro Longwear lip pencil in What a Blast! was applied to the lips, before Pro Longwear Lipcreme in Good to Go.

I adore both looks, but I think the first more natural look is my favourite. It’s elegant and subtle but makes Drews key features stand out. I love the orange lip in the second look, and although it may be a bit bright for me I actually really want to give it a go.

Overall, this was a really inspiring event – one of those ones where you just want to go home and try out all your makeup and recreate the look. I actually have a lot of the products used at the event already, such as Something Special Cremeblend blush and Mineralize Skinfinish Natural and this has made me want to try them out and use some of Chers tips.
I’m so excited to say we’ve been given a sample of the Lustre Drops so expect a review on them pretty quickly.

What do you think of Chers looks?
