The importance of using a primer

  • Using a primer will create a smoother finish when completing  your make up.
  • Primers provide a long lasting finish.
  • Using a primer seal pores. If you do not use a primer and apply liquid foundation then pores will be more visible.
  • Overtime you may notice that your skin has become softer.
  • Primers are very easy to apply.

Tip; The senior make up artist at Addictive believes for a flawless finish apply your primer with your fingertips.

The best high street primer is: NYX HD Studio photogenic primer base

The best high end primer is:  Smashbox photo finished foundation primer (clear)-light

The Top 5 HOT Red’s From MAC


Welcome to Addictive Beauty’s first EVER blog post.

Why not start the new month with a sizzling, HOT red lipstick from MAC?

Our make-up artist at Additive recommends the following MUST HAVE shades from Mac Cosmetics:

Russian Red (Matte); Russian red is a luxurious colour which is perfect for a night out or an evening function. This colour suits all skin tones and is a very popular shade and is used for our traditional Asian bridal looks.

Ruby Woo (Matte)Ruby woo is a must have for your make up kits ladies!! This shade is very popular and you can wear this colour all year round.

Chili (Matte); The pigmentation for Chili is fantastic as any of the other Mac lipsticks. This shade has hints of an orange tone and compliments medium to dark skin tones. Chili is definitely our go to shade during the Autumn/Winter seasons.

Relentlessly Red (Matte)Relentlessly red is a very bold shade with hints of pink. Definitely the IN shade during the spring/summer seasons.  This shade compliments both pale and warm skin tones.

Ladybug (Lustre); Ladybug gives a beautiful satin finish which adds the extra finishing touch to the classic red lip. Ladybug goes well with pale skin tones

Recommendations: ** Cherry and Ruby Woo lip liners are perfect for outlining the lips for all the red shades mentioned above.**
