Simple Bonfire Night Makeup MAC Cosmetics

Tue 3 Nov 2015 - posted by SJ Cosh

Autumn is just the best season for me. I love to get dressed up all cozy, the sun shines but it's freezing cold and all the leaves change their colours which always looks super picturesque and beautiful. Oh and then there are also the best night of the year - Bonfire Night! 

I was sent some super sparkly, limited edition pretties by MAC Cosmetics. a few from their Le Disko range (anyone who knows me will know i'm a HUGE Disco fan) and a few from the MAC Is Beauty range. I figured that they would be perfect for some super simple looks for this season for those who don't want to go all out or those who just want to create a cute daytime look. 

Dazzleshadow in 'Let's Boogie'

Cremesheen Glass in 'Japanese Spring'

'Let's Boogie' is a super beautiful dazzleshadow that has minimum fallout like I know alot of black shadows and especially glitter shadows can have. It goes on fairly light so you can layer up accordingly to how dark you actually want it, I decided to start dark and fade out without going too high up the lid and just added a little mascara and liner to give it a bit more gradient. 

'Japanese Spring' is described as a dirty-pink which I LOVE and totally get. I reminded me alot of the old Lady Gaga Viva Glam lipglass, that kinda bluey-pink. I'm not a huge lipgloss fan but this was lovely and subtle and I just adored the colour and pairing it with the black. 

Dazzleshadow in 'I Like 2 Watch'

Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel in 'Brassy'

Amplified Lipstick in 'DIVA-ISH'

I instantly fell in love with 'I Like 2 Watch' even in it's pot! It's a beautiful golden brown with yellow and green hints to it. The picture will never do it justice it is just gorgeous. Again there isn't much fallout - it was on my eyelashes but I loved it so never bothered to cover it with more mascara. I added 'Brassy' to my waterline and just a touch underneath too. Very Bonfire night!

'DIVA-ISH' is an intense fuchsia with a nice creme finish to it. I love a good pink and this definitely stands out from the crowd. 

I had so much fun playing with these gorgeous products so now it's time to put them to good use!

I hope whatever you do for Bonfire night you have a (safe) and awesome time :)
