MAC Masterclass Event: ‘Ageless Beauty’: Part One


MAC Masterclass Event: Some of the free goodies and purchases











Recently, I attended a MAC Masterclass event focusing on ‘Ageless Beauty’.  MAC often runs special Masterclass events where you can learn various tips and techniques surrounding make-up application.  I feel I am experienced in make-up application but I thought it would be interesting to see how a professional make-up artist applies make-up and pick up some tips along the way.

I thought it might be useful to write a series of posts about the MAC Masterclass, with each part focusing on a specific aspect.  I’ve split the post into three parts as I felt that there was so much information I wanted to include and I thought it might be easier for you to easily navigate the content.    Part One provides Background to the Masterclass (what is a Masterclass, cost and booking, structure, goodie bag, after the event), Part Two covers the Masterclass Content and Look Overview (skin care, day time look, evening look) and Part Three provides details on the Tips and Techniques I learned from attending the event.

This particular post – Part One – provides background on the Masterclass event, in terms of how it was structured, the goodies I received and some of the products I purchased.  These details may be helpful to you if you have considered attending one of these events but aren’t sure what to expect.

Eyeshadow ‘fallout’ refers to the little particles of powder which drop down on the face when you are applying eyeshadow.  It can be very frustrating seeing ‘fallout’ on the face when you have spent time creating a beautiful look.  Having little specks of eyeshadow or glitter can make the under-eye area look messy and ruin the overall effect.

New Posts Coming on Make-up Application, Tips and Tricks!














I love writing posts for my blog, as I find it to be such a great creative outlet for my love of all things make-up. 

Friends and family regularly ask me for advice on make-up, which was another motivator for me to set up my own make-up blog.  Having my own blog enables me to point friends/family to a resource where I can write posts addressing all their queries on make-up application, provide recommendations for products or give them inspiration for looks.

I’m really keen to get back into writing posts on make-up application on my blog, as in recent times, I have been focusing more on products, looks and hauls.  I miss writing about the educational aspects, so I’m excited to get back into adding these types of posts to my blog! Products, looks, combo ideas, hauls and make-up news will still be a feature of my blog; I’m just looking to diversify my content and to post on a wider variety of areas.

You will be able to find all existing and upcoming posts on make-up application under the ‘All About Make-Up Guide’ tab on the menu bar.  I’m also going to add in a ‘Tips and Tricks’ category to the ‘All About Make-Up Guide’ tab for upcoming posts on how to address various make-up related issues or concerns.

Are there any areas of make-up application you would like to learn more about? Any issues, niggles or aspects you struggle with in terms of make-up application? Let me know in the comments section and I will see if I can write a post to help you out!
