FOTD: Coral Lips (MAC’s Vegas Volt)

Hey everyone,
Today I thought I’d do a FOTD post, so you can see how I did my makeup yesterday. I bought my first Mac lipstick, Vegas Volt, months ago, but did not get on well with it, it clung to my dry lips and highlighted every single crack in them. But, I thought I’d give it another go because after using Lush’s lip scrub and a combination of amazing lip balms (Nuxe, EOS and Soap and Glory) for the past month, my lips are so much better.
I was really happy that it looked so much better on application, not perfect but it lasted for hours so I was really impressed with that and I think if I go for a lighter shade or a different formula next time I get a Mac lipstick, I will maybe get on a bit better with them!
So, here’s how I started off, brace yourselves for a no makeup snap!
Here is me completely free of makeup but I thought I’d show you guys a blank canvas first! Also, I was practicing doing a messy bun and I really got the hang of it after a few tries, let me know if you want a tutorial for that! I’ve always struggled with them but I’ve finally worked out how to do one and its super easy! :)
and here’s the end result!
