Make Up Monday - MUA Pro Range

I'm cheating a little bit with this weeks Make Up Monday as I am not doing a tutorial or make up tips, but I am going to tell you about the MUA pro range that is being launched this month!

This range of make up has been designed by MUA along with make up artist Lisa Valencia as part of the team to ensure they brought out a range that was great quality but staying at affordable price!  I got to see these products at TOWIB in London at the weekend (find out more about it in tomorrows post), the team from MUA (Make Up Academy) were there to talk to us and demonstrate with the new products and to make it even better we all got goodie bags at the end with some of the new products to play with! If I am completely honest I was a tad sceptical about how good the quality could be for such low prices but I am more than happy to eat my words as they are AMAZING!

As a make up artist I do find it hard when you buy palettes which more unusual colours in as they don't get used that often and for hygiene reasons its not ideal to have them for too long but with ranges like MUA you don't have to worry about wasting money! Their Pro range palettes have 12 eye shadows in and cost just £4.00, the quality is great, the powder doesn't drop too much and the pigment is really high so you get full colour with out to much product!

 This palette aptly named Poptastic is perfect for creating on trend colour blocking looks, also a great item to pack for festival goers!
Heaven & Earth is a palette full of more neutral and muted tones, an essential palette for everyone as the colours will work well on all skin tones. Great for beginners as you can experiment with out having to go too wild! You will be in smoky eye heaven with this palette!
The palettes come with a double ended sponge applicator brush.

The primer priced at £4.00, this is quite a light product and would be applied after moisturiser before foundation a top tip from Lisa Valencia is to apply with a foundation brush, this will ensure even coverage.

The MUA pro and standard range are available from superdrug and their counter is well worth a visit just be prepared to part with your cash as you will want it all (I know I do!)

So watch out for next weeks Make Up Monday, I will use the MUA products to create next weeks look!
