Here is a full run-down of the Max Factor products I used on my live Stories. Over on the Boots website are also videos of Caroline Barnes, giving a slightly more visually-appealing and pro make up demos than mine.

First the foundation was this:

The colour I used is Golden 75, which was the colour a lot of us used in the tutorial, so if you are roughly my colour, go for it. It has a primer element to it, which means that the colour will adjust to your skin tone.

The concealer I used was MasterTouch All Day Concealer in Fair 306 – rather frustratingly not listed online at Boots, but will be available at counters. I mean, it’s hard not to get pissed off about discrepancies like that, but I suppose that’s just life isn’t it.

This is the very innovative liquid eyeliner in the funny paddle-shape, which I rather like, though might be total anathema to some of you:

The reviews for this aren’t great just because I don’t think they quite got how to use the shape of it.

The highlighter – remember to apply it in a “C” shape

And finally – the new Dark Magic mascara! MF are seriously proud of this one.

The bronzer, alas, isn’t listed on the Boots website :( – and the blush I used was Bobbi Brown in Nectar.

THIS is the amazing nail polish I was talking about! Love this so hard and I never wear nail varnish. Very easy to apply, dries quickly and such a jaunty colour. The bloody picture won’t upload on here because, I don’t know, THE INTERNET HATES ME? But the link should still work.
