As you can see from my title, I have gone a little mad with M.A.C lately!
There is a reason for this crazy behaviour though.
I went to Travor Sorbie on Monday to be a hair model for a hairdresser's test.
I don't want to put her name out here without permission so I will just say the hairdresser. (I am not being rude. :P)
Since you already know that I have been there a couple of times,
to have my hair cut and coloured.
Then on Monday, it was a big day for the hairdresser.
There were 10 models in total, 9 girls and 1 boy.
5 make-up artists, from a private make-up school.
I arrived there at 3 in the afternoon, and she washed my hair and dried it,
made sure every thing was okay,
I have never had hair cuts like these before, why I am saying this,
it's because she had to cut it in certain angles,
well, I don't quite understand hair cut techniques,
but what I know is that she is amazing,
the Salon is so high standard.
I was having my make-up done by a girl,
she had so many M.A.C products!!!
I loved M.A.C before but now I love it more because the ones she used on me was so stunning!!
She asked me what lipstick colour I normally used,
I told her I didn't really wear lipstick much because my lips are too dry.
Anyway, because she had to put bright colour lipstick on me,
she mixed 2 colours and it was actually alright on me.
She loved it herself though haha.
Then I went back to my seat to rest haha.
This doesn't look so much like me, does it? haha
Anyway, before 7 o'clock, the hairdresser got us all ready.
We then were separated and sat in groups in front of a mirror each, obviously I was in the bob group, there were creative style, short hair etc.)
Then we waited for the big guy to arrive.
I assumed he was the head of the Salon.
The big guy did a brief introduction about what he was going to do, and that he was a very tough guy.
HE WAS! INDEED!
He went through all our hair one by one and used a comb to check every single bits.
Oh man, that was so crazy.
He pointed out so many little mistakes on each of us, the fringe of mine was not even :P
I told the guy that my fringe was never even, always very weird.
and he said, then it is because of the haircut isn't it?
(How mean?!!! hahahha...I was trying to save the hairdresser :P)
She was so nervous I could see.
To be honest, I didn't know what would happen to her if she doesn't pass the test.
Would she lost her job? would she be low-graded in her job?
I didn't know.
There was also a guy who was assisting the big guy.
So once the big guy done checking, the assistant checked again.
(There were also more than 10 hairdressers surrounding us, looking the test.)
Finally, the big guy said, thank you all, and they were going to have a meeting now.
He told us that he was being very tough but that's how he was and he needed to be.
Then they went in for the meeting, maybe only 3 to 4 of them, without the hairdresser.
Then about 15 minutes later they asked her to go in.
And the minute when she came out of the room, she was in tears and said, "I passed!"
We all were so happy for her and we clapped our hands and hugged her.
It was such a moving moment!
It was amazing to go through these moments with someone.
I felt great and felt so happy that I have helped her.
Well, this was such a long story!!! :P
But yeah, I wanted to get a new lipstick from M.A.C as I always wanting to get one but never really have the motivation to buy it.
Now I kinda have the reason :P
So today when I went to the fabric shop to buy 2 buttons for the jacket i am making,
on my way home, I passed selfridges.
I got crazy trying lipsticks on.
so many pretty colours!!!
Then I also tried foundations, concealers, loose powders, and a transparent finishing powder.
And I bought 3 items finally!!
Bad bad bad!
I bought a lipstick, a concealer and a transparent finishing powder.
Was going to buy a foundation but the colour I wanted was out of stock.
This is how the lipstick looks when it's on me!
I love it I love it I love it!!!
Seriously this colour is amazing!!! It is Rough A Levres.
It gives a matte finish, so nice so pretty!
I had it on for 3 hours and it was still in perfect shade and it didn't dry out my lips at all.
It is not sticky because it doesn't have those shiny gloss in.
How can I express my love for it?
I will definitely do a post on the products I bought today again but will do it when I experiment with them!!! Thanks for reading!!! Have a good night! xxx
