MAC 15 Pan Palette Update – I did it!

I did it, I finally depotted most of my MAC shadows into a MAC 15 pan palette and am LOVING it! Depotting the shades was actually quite an easy job and I can’t believe I haven’t done this sooner. If this is somehing you would like to do yourself, click here to see the method I used.

I realized I actually have a few more shadows then I thought I did, so will need to buy another 15 pan palette, MAC shop here I come haha. See the result below of my new MAC Palette which includes most of my all time favourite shades.  (first photo no flash, 2nd photo with flash)

2x FOTD’s – Pretty at the Races vs Rocking out at ACDC

Had a pretty busy day yesterday. Wellington turned on a GORGEOUS summers day, which was perfect for the Wellington Cup  Day races I was going to with my flat mate. I got my make up done for the event at Mecca Cosmetics because I had purchased something from their store back in December and they offered me a free make up session in January. A girl can’t say no to that right?
Because I was wearing a pastel yellow dress I requested for my look to be bronzy, goldy & pinks with a soft/barbie pink lip. See look below – what do you think?

Some of the main products (the ones I can remember)  the make up artist used on me were: 
FACE: Prescriptives Flawless Skin Liquid Foundation,  Prescriptives Magic Powder, NARS Blush – Lovejoy, NARS Laguna Bronzer,  NARS Albatros as highlighter.
EYES: NARS hula hula eye shadow duo on the lid (I own this one and love it!), for the crease and lower lid she used a warm gold colour from the Stila charmed eye shadow palette mixed with a Fig eyeshadow (can’t remember the brand – woops) Liner: Stila Smudge pot in black.
LIPS: NARS Roman Holiday Lipstick & NARS Turkish Delight (both on my wishlist! If only NARS wasn’t so expensive in NZ!)

It was pretty funny because I think I am quite particular in the way I like to wear my make up. In beginning the look was pretty natural so I had to ask the make up artist to darken the crease a bit & to add eye liner..don’t think I could ever really leave the house without eye liner so that was a definite add on! Another thing I always find interesting about getting your make up done is that they never curl your eye lashes. I ALWAYS curl my eye lashes so they felt a little flat to me without the added “oomph” curling them gives :) But overall thought the look was really pretty and matched my outfit really well.

OOTD  above. We had a great time at the races, checking out everyones frocks, having some bubbly and seeing the horses race. I didn’t win any $ (haha I never win anything) but was a fabulous day!

Then after the races I had to rush home to get changed (and of course change my FOTD) to head off to the ACDC concert.
It’s not really my kind of scene/music etc but I got offered free tickets (corporate box ones) through work so thought;  hey why not,  it’s a great opportunity to see a band like that! I changed my look by adding grey & black shimmery eyeshadows from my Bobbi Brown Chrome Palette (love it!) and lots of black MAC smolder eye liner.

Even though I didn’t really know many of their songs, I thought they put on a great entertaining show & had a really fun time. Plus they clearly prove; age doesn’t matter because these “oldies” know how to ROCK ON! :P

MAC 15 Pan Palette

Exciting news! Received my empty MAC 15 pan palette via courier today. My goal this weekend will be to depot most of my individual MAC shadows to create my very own MAC template.

MAC Palettes 4853 MAC 15 Pan Palette

This has been on my list to do for so long! By doing this I will create lots of space in my make up case plus I can’t wait to return 6 empty plastic MAC items to their store to receive a FREE lipstick.

Will have to start thinking about which one to get, any suggestions?
