Ellie Goulding is one super cool lady with effortless style. If, like me, you could do with a little help in that department, Ellie has teamed up with MAC to create a dreamy make-up collection so we can steal her beauty style.
The MAC x Ellie Goulding collection includes romantic, neutral shades inspired by the lady herself. Named after her songs, standouts from the range include all-in-one bronzer and eyeshadow compacts, a sheer coral lipstick and a rose gold liquid illuminator – all presented in stunning packaging with Ellie’s rose gold logo.
I did my best Wannabe-Ellie-In-A-Dodgy-Photoshoot in the gallery above with three of my favourites from the limited edition range. Here are my thoughts so far:
MAC x Ellie Goulding Halcyon Nights all-in-one palette (€55)
It was love at first sight with this dual-purpose palette. Featuring four easy-to-wear shadows and a cream colour base, this is definitely a collection highlight for me.
For an effortless smokey eye, I worked You My Everything (mid-tone peachy brown matte) into the crease and blended followed by Saddle (golden orange-brown). I finished with Hanging On (muted plum brown satin) on the outer corners and under the lashes and Starry Eyed (cream pearl) on the inner corners and under the brow bone.
I completed the look with highlights of This Love cream base (pinky-orange pearl). Love. It.
MAC x Ellie Goulding Plushglass in Goodness Gracious (€25)
You just can’t beat a MAC lip gloss. As you’d expect, this gloss is super shiny and gives the glossiest pinky pout imaginable. I adore it but just don’t wear it out in the lashings of wind and rain and expect your freshly blow-dried hair not to stick to it (speaking from bitter experience here peeps).
MAC x Ellie Goulding Patent Polish Lip Pencil in Revved Up (€25)
The lip pencil, on the other hand, can be worn in all weather with great abandon. This creamy peach lip pencil has a subtle shimmer to it and gives beautiful soft-focus lips. It’s a joy to wear with not a single solitary hair stuck to my pout.
So ladies, will you be trying Ellie’s new MAC range?
