What happened when Max Factor met Beaut.ie readers for a dream makeover?

A little while back, we asked our readers to join us and Max Factor for a dream makeover.

We wanted you to tell us how makeup makes you feel, because when you look good, you feel good, and when you know you look good, you feel amazing. Our readers know that makeup should not be about transforming a person, it should be about enhancing your best features. Makeup can be that little touch that ups your confidence and gives you a boost.

New mum Melissa and nurse Yvonne were two Beaut.ie readers who took the challenge and won the chance to meet Max Factor makeup artist Lyndsay Cavanagh for a once-in-a-lifetime personalised makeover.

Lyndsay showed Melissa how to cover those dark circles that inevitably appear when you have a baby in the house, and how to complement the even base with a pop of colour.

The products Lyndsay used for Melissa's gorgeous look were:

  • Smooth Miracle Primer
  • Miracle Touch Foundation
  • Mastertouch All Day Concealer in Ivory– Lyndsey applied this in two lighter layers rather than one heavy layer.
  • Eyebrow Pencil in Hazel
  • Masterpiece Nude Palette in Rose Nudes
  • Masterpiece High Precision Liquid Liner in Black
  • False Lash EPIC Mascara in Black
  • Crème Puff Blush in Lavish Mauve
  • Colour Elixir Lip Liner in Mauve Moment
  • Lipfinity Long Lasting Lipstick in Always Chic
  • Colour Elixir Lip Gloss in Radiant Rose

For Yvonne, Lyndsay focused on creating that perfect smoky eye to show off her flawless foundation.

See every product Lindsay used for Yvonne's incredible look:

  • Smooth Miracle Primer
  • Miracle Touch Foundation
  • Mastertouch All Day Concealer in Ivory
  • Eyebrow Pencil in Hazel
  • Masterpiece Nude Palette in Cappuccino Nudes
  • Masterpiece High Precision Liquid Liner in Black

  • Crème Puff Blush in Seductive Pink
  • Vanilla shadow from the Masterpiece Nude Palette used to highlight cheekbones
  • Colour Elixir Lip Liner in Brown & Nude
  • Colour Intensifying lip balm in Exquisite Caramel

The Max Factor #BeMoreYou campaign celebrates the power makeup has to enhance a woman's individual glamour. Thanks to Melissa and Yvonne for showing how true this is, and to Lynsday for creating the fabulous looks.
