As I said, I'm going to post pictures of my McQueen Makeover. My first makeover at MAC was from the Blue Storm collection and though it wasn't bad, it wasn't dramatic. Last Thursday when I bought the McQueen Collection, I was flipping through some face charts and saw this look. I wasn't able to take a picture of the face chart, but it was absolutely gorgeous! The only exception was the the liner winged out in the inner corner instead of the outer.... sounds weird, but it looked fabulous!
I love it, but there are a few things that I didn't like too much. For one thing, on the left side of my face, I think she didn't blend in the contour color of my cheeks well so it looks like a streak of color. And she set my face with Studio Fix Powder and didn't blend in the powder on the left side, so you can see a blotch of white lol :) My skin must have gotten darker because I wear NC30 in Studio Fix Fluid, but when she used the Studio Fix Powder in NC30 on me it totally washed me out. It may also be the combination of Strobe Cream... the luminescent particles may be why I look so.... white :D Anyways, I like the Studio Fix Powder stuff, I'll probably get it in NC35 later. Oh and the Strobe Cream is great, it makes me glow in real life, but taking a picture just looks too disco ball-ish.
What really ticks me off with makeovers is the lashes. In my opinion, lashes are one of the most important features, especially for Asians since for the most part, our lashes are straight. Anyways, she didn't curl my lashes which bugs me because just curling your lashes can make your eyes 100 times bigger! I curled them myself when I got home & added some of my Shiseido Mascara since I HATE MAC mascaras. I'm looking forward to the Mascara X coming out with the Holiday stuff, but from my past experiences with Zoomlash, Loud Lash, and Plushlash, I don't expect any miracles. Alright, on with the pictures!

So what do y'all think? I want to recreate this look sometime in the future.
Usually with makeovers, you have to pay $50 which you can spend on products. I bought some Prep + Prime for skin... I use Smashbox, but I might as well stick with MAC :)... also I bought a sharpener, 266 & 224 brush. I'm loving the full-size version of both. I have the SE ones, and the 224se is too harsh on my skin, but I LOVE the full-size one. I'll be doing a video on the differences from the brush sets to the full-size ones soon. Anyways, here's the pic:
That's it... I'll be posting a few videos soon!
