Mark Does My Makeup

I love watching the tag videos on YouTube and one of my favourite is my husband/boyfriend does my make up. Now while I'm not quite brave enough to do a video (maybe one day) I thought I would do a blog post.

So here it is...
The not so lovely before.
I gave Mark a selection of make up products to use and tried my best not to help. I thought he would do a bit better than he did but in the end the only thing he didn't really do well was my eye make up but he did skipped part of that anyway... more on that later.

First off he started with foundation. He used my one and only foundation which is Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid in Ivory and I love it. To my surprise he decided to blend this in using a blusher brush!! A new technique that I wouldn't recommend but it worked ok! This foundation really is amazing even when applied with a blusher brush.

Next up was eye shadow... He had a couple of MUA palettes to choose from and decided to choose a gold colour. He chose this colour because it looked like the funniest one (his words not mine). Staying with the eyes he then applied eye liner. He used a black pencil from Rimmel. He then tried to use a lip gloss as mascara and I had to step in. I didn't fancy that happening! He then decided that he didn't like my eyes with mascara on anyway so missed it out. Personally I think he was scared by it :)

For my face he used a Maybelline cream blush and blended this in using his fingers, I think he did a pretty good job. He also applied a little bronzer using an eye shadow brush, hehe.

Mark normally says that he loves my freckles, me personally I hate them! So I was very surprised when he said that he was using a concealer to cover my freckles. Thanks babe!! Personally I'd use it to cover my dark circles.

He finished off with about five different lipsticks and there we have it.

The finished look!

Overall he didn't do a bad job. My face make up looked good but I'm not too keen on my eye shadow.

What do you think?
