M.A.C One-on-One Class: Scott Barnes Inspired

Today I took a one-on-one lesson at my MAC store. I love these lessons because for $100, you get a 90-minute makeup lesson with any of the certified Makeup Artists and learn whatever look you want; natural, everyday to over-the-top drag queen lol. Plus, you get 20% off on all products for a month*! This may be my 8th or 9th lesson (can't keep track!) and I've always learned something new from each MA.

The look I wanted was something dramatic but with neutral colors, sort of Jennifer Lopez-ish. I also wanted to learn how to contour and highlight the face. So I took a page from the new Scott Barnes's book I picked up recently but made it a bit more dramatic. I learned a lot of new techniques, can't remember them all but promise to show them in upcoming videos. One of my favorite tips though was how to make your lower liner last longer. My liner always smudges, doesn't matter what I use or how I apply it. But Heidi (the MA,duh) used the Liquidlast Liner and smudged with a pencil brush, then set and softened it with eyeshadows. I've been wearing the look all day and it hasn't budged! Definitely need to practice this technique.
