If there is one thing I love just as much as Makeup, it’s music.
And Shawn Mendes.
My blogging BFF Cortney is also quite the fangirl (she went to his concert two nights in a row #goals) so we’ve decided to share our MOTN with you all- to show what makeup works, and doesn’t work, for a concert!
I really do love this Primer… but since I have tried a few others recently- I’ve discovered that this one is good for everyday wear as it leaves a satin finish- but I need something with more durability for a sweaty concert.
Tribe Anti Redness Serum / here
I think this may be the product that occasionally causes my foundation to pill when applied on top. But the effectiveness of this serum trumps that. Pricey- but you truly only need a tiny bit each application.
Chi Chi CC Cream / here
This has a funny scent- not added fragrance but just the way it is. Once you look past that- this is such a great product. Buildable coverage and lasts well. Wears around my nose and chin but everything does.
Australis Fresh and Flawless Concealer / here
I really enjoy this concealer- does the trick to brighten my under eyes well.
Australis Fresh and Flawless Powder / here
I use this as a setting powder and think it’s super effective, especially considering the price point. And it seems to last for ever. Literally!
MAC Fix+ Setting Spray / sold out in this scent
This is the white tea scent and it’s divine but I actually think the spray is quite uneven and heavy. So not my fave. But a convenient travel size.
Australis Eyeshadow Primer / here
Great… when I remember to use it!
Mecca Max Sugar Queen Eyeshadow Palette / sold out 😩
All these months on and she is still sooooo pretty. I challenged myself to use the silver shades- normally I’m a gold girl- and it was so fun!
Mavala Eyeliner in silver / here
The tip of this product makes eyeliner achievable for even people like me (aka hopeless eyeliner people!). So good! (Gifted)
Ulta3 Bloom Blush / here
You know I’m scared of liquid blush at the best of times. I think the formula will take a bit of getting used to because I definitely applied too much. But I adore the colour and it is very convenient for travel. I will have to keep practising! (Gifted)
Elf Bronzer / here
So. Good. But I was terrified it would break during the travelling. Seriously though, so pigmented. I love.
NYX Illuminating Powder / unable to find online
Used this as highlight because despite the fact I took my Colourpop… I FORGOT TO USE IT 😩 This powder is nice enough but don’t really have a specific use for it. (Won in a giveaway)
Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil / here
Took this particular product because it has a spoolie attached. Win!
MCo Beauty More Brow / here
This product is cheap as chips, located at Woolies and definitely worth a try. I use it for the tint rather than its staying power. A clear gel on top wouldn’t hurt to keep your brows in place.
Rimmel Wonderluxe mascara / here
Ok, so first impressions when I used this a while ago, I didn’t like it. So wet and clumpy, and the plastic brush was not my jam.
BYS Illuminating Body Spray / here
Wow ok I thought these sorts of products were all hype and had no place in my beauty pile… I was wrong! So. Much. Glow! And it’s a really “I’m a model” kinda glow, not a “sweaty mess” glow and I appreciate that. So easy to spray and apply- and so cheap!
Flower Beauty in Spiced Petal / here
Super affordable and I do love Flower on a whole, but I actually found this quite drying. It’s a beautiful colour though. This lippie is supposed to be a dupe for CT “pillow talk” too FYI!
Essence Gloss in That’s Big / here
Katie got me onto this lippie and omg I adore it! Gloss is back and in a big way. It has a slight tingle but not a major plumping effect. The colour and feel is gorgeous.
Overall, my makeup lasted pretty well for the concert.
I’m really loving a natural, glowing base at the moment, and then I have a play with eyes and lips.
As a bonus feature of this post, I thought I’d leave you with my 3 fave songs from the night…
Dan + Shay – 10 000 Hours: the support act were amazing, and maybe even my fave part of the show 🙊 (controversial?!)
SM ft JuliaMichaels – Like To Be You: Julia Michaels is my fave artist, but Shawn really held his own in this performance. It was captivating!
SM – There’s Nothing Holding Me Back: this song was sooooo fun! Everyone was jumping around and dancing, I think it would have been much better placed at the end of the setlist. Nonetheless, a fab tune!
Thanks to Cortney for collaborating with me again- love ya girl! 😘
