The start of my MAC eyeshadow collection...

Uh-Oh yes, I have also been sucked into collecting MAC eyeshadows and I can tell I am going to have to fill a full palette in the future. I went to MAC on Tuesday and I already knew what eyeshadows I wanted yet I still stood there for ages swatching a lot of colours.

I bought my first two eyeshadows in the original packaging instead of the pan slots, and will be buying palettes to fill soon. I will re-purchase these colours in the future once I have used them all up anyway so it doesn't matter!

All that glitters is such a gorgeous colour and I am going to get a lot of use out of it as it's a colour you can wear all year round! Who doesn't love pink and glitter?

Espresso is a brown matte eyeshadow which is great for working into the crease. It compliments all that glitters well and I can tell this is going to be a eyeshadow i reach for a lot!

I am very pleased with my purchases and can't wait till my collection increases! What was your first MAC eyeshadow?

My go to spring/summer makeup look!

The way I do my makeup changes all the time. Every day I will do the same thing even if I have extra time to spend doing my makeup but every now and then I like to mix it up a little and go all out. I am not an expert at makeup and definitely not when it comes to eye makeup but I am learning!

This makeup look is perfect for the days where you want to change up your makeup to something fun but don't want to look like you have over done it!  This look is also super girly!

Just a little side note, you may be wondering what blusher I am wearing however, believe it or not, I am actually not wearing a blusher. I have also put concealer over my cheeks to try and hide the redness but it doesn't cover how pink my cheeks actually are. It is a good and a bad thing. Good- I don't need blusher Bad- it looks like i cant put on blusher properly sometimes..

Hope you like this makeup look! What are your favourite products to use this spring/summer?
