Wednesday Evening - Today I went to Manchester to go shopping with my family.
I had a hugeee make up splash! Selfridges was calling my name!
Dermalogica - various items
Clarins - Wonder perfect mascara
MAC - foundation
Clarins - Various moisturising goodies
Mac - Primer
Mac - Pump for my foundation
Clarins - Make up bag

I asked the lovely lady at MAC to do my make up because I'm sick of spending £££ on make up but not been able to apply it. She told me that my foundation is far too dark for me and gave me more of a neutral toned one, but for oily skin because my skin is horrible at the moment.
She put a shimmery primer on first which feels amazing!

She recommended this one to me because it is for skin that changes, for instance my skin can be really dry one week and ridiculously greasy the next. Thats hormones for you ey!
The thing I like best is the case (OMG) it's shiny and shimmeryy! I couldn't capture this on camera but it's so beautiful and girlie! It isn't matte so I can wipe it clean and it'll look all new!

As you can see, it's quite shimmery and it feels so moisturising, I will do a full review of it once I've tried it myself. It was £18.00 which I think is amazing considering I usually spend £30.00 on my Shu Uemera primer.
I got my usual foundation but got it in a really light colour (NC25) I was scared because I usually wear (NC35) but it looks so much more natural and because it isn't too dark it doesn't look dirty. I'll let you know how I get on with it when I apply it tomorrow.

Above you can kind of see the make up that she did me. It just looks natural and quite perfect even if I do say so myself. I love the blusher she used, I never wear blusher, just bronzer but she put the bronzer all over my face. The tip she gave me was to put bronzer underneath the cheek bones as she said it emphasizes them more.

I was speaking to the girl and telling her how annoyed I am that my skin is rubbish at the moment and she recommended dermalogica. EVERYONE from EVERYWHERE recommends this. The only problem is, it is sooo expensive so I went for a consultation and got some samples to see if I like it - I will let you all know after a week of using it.

Next I went to Clarins to pick up the mascara that I was recommended. I can't wait to trial it for you all.

BECAUSE I bought one item, Clarins were doing this thing where if you buy two, you got a free make up bag and full sized (I think they're full sized, they're big anyway!) moisturiser and bath and shower oil. I thought why not! And my mum bought the mascara as well. Bargain! 

Okay so I didn't buy much clothing but the few things I did buy are here;

Crop top from Topshop, not sure what i'll wear it with though!
Maybe a waist high skirt or waist high leather shorts on a night out.
Ignore my paleness I haven't tanned!

Yellow/lemon shorts from Hollister.

Cricket jumper from Hollister.

I love the colour of them!

Hope you all like everything I bought today! Can't wait to use them all tomorrow so that I can review them fully for you! Mwah
