M.A.C Candy yum yum dupe

M.a.c has recently re-released candy yum yum along side ‘moxie’ and ‘rocker’ as part of there most voted for favourites collection and it has been one hell of a struggle to get my hands on one as it has constantly been sold out but finally I managed to bag myself one.

Candy yum yum is a bright matte neon pink lipstick which all make up artists and make up junkies are going mad for and on photographs it looked like the perfect pink so I bought it. It arrived this morning and I’ve gotta be honest I wasn’t impressed with the colour as it is a lot more neon than i thought it would be. Don’t get me wrong it is an absolutely beautiful colour and I do recommend it, it just unfortunately is not a colour that I can pull off, anything too bright or neon makes me look like a clown. I love the feel of it on my lips and the finish, I love matte finishes for lipsticks. It cost £14 and there is free delivery on the M.a.c website until the 25th so go get yourself one before it sells out again!!

After I put it on I realised I already have a lipstick like this and that is Barry m’s lip paint in I think either shade 62 or 52, the sticker has fallen off so I cant be too sure but its definitely one of those shades and it only cost £4.49 and the colour is exactly the same, they are just different finishes, this one is more of a satin finish and has more of a creamy texture, where as candy yum yum is matte.

They are exactly the same colour so the only thing i can comment on that I prefer are the finishes so for that I do prefer candy yum yum. If you’re happy to spend £14 then go get yourself candy yum yum, if you’re desperate for candy yum yum but its a tad too pricey for you then go buy Barry m, you wont be able to tell the difference.

Eyes using Naked 2 & Undress me too palette

  1. Use a white or cream shadow as a base and apply it all over the lid. For this i used Foxy from Naked 2.
  2. Take a deep purple and blend it all across the lower lash line and then up through the crease blending it outwards into a subtle flick. I used Busted from Naked 2
  3. Take a gold highlighter or glitter and apply a small streak in the middle of the lower lash line. I used Illamasqua illuminator in Glimmer.
  4. Highlight the inner corner of the eye with a shimmery white or silver and blend a light brown through the rest of the lid. I used Verve from Naked 2 on the inner corner and a mixture of lavish and obsessed from the Undress me palette across the lid.
  5. Line the whole eye top and bottom and go out into a flick in the corner with a black liner. I used Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner for this.
  6. Finally apply fake eyelashes, coat your bottom lashes and the falsies with mascara. Then as a finishing touch darken the tail of your eyebrow with the gel liner. I used Red cherry lashes in DW and volume flash mascara from Rimmel

ImageOmbre Lips

  1. Line the lips with a deep brown. For this I didn’t use lip liner I used an eyebrow pencil from in the shade black/brown.
  2. Apply a mid tone purple lipstick. I used Mac lipstick in the shade Rebel.
  3. Take the lip liner and colour in the edges of the lips and blend in with the lipstick
  4. Finally take a highlighter on concealer and pat it in the center of the lips. I used Illamasqua concealer.

How to get dewy skin with M.A.C Strobe cream Pictorial

1. Before

2. Apply Strobe cream all over the face

3. Apply your foundation with your beauty blender

4. Apply your concealer where needed also to highlight apply on the chin, cupids bow, nose onto the forehead and cheekbones and set with powder.

5. Apply a bronzer with your stipple brush, I like to use a cream bronzer for this look and add a pea sized amount of moisturizer to it to add to the highlighted look.

6. Apply more Strobe cream to the chin,cupids bow, apples of cheeks up onto the cheekbones, the forehead above the arch of the eyebrows and a small amount on the nose and you’re done!

If you want to add some extra highlight, I recommend Illamasqua illuminators on the cheekbones and brow bones.
