Lorde x MAC Makeup Tutorial

Last week MAC Cosmetics released this face chart letting us all know that they are going to be collaborating with the fabulous Lorde this coming June....

...And of course the internet erupted with excitement, me included! Now I'm not usually one to get my knickers in a twist over celebrity collaborations BUT I do love the uniqueness of Lorde's 'look' and her aesthetic. She very much plays by her own rules and isn't concerned with being pretty pretty. A girl after my own heart! And lest not forget that she is but only a tender 17 years old.
So of course I wanted to recreate this face chart myself to share with all you guys who also appreciate the more edgy paired down looks.

Here's my before & after...

And a side by side with Lorde aka Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O'Connor (Obvs a bit of Irish in there with the O'Connor), with her sporting one of her usual looks.

As usual here are the products I used to recreate the face chart, and scroll on down a tad further to watch the tutorial!
