Shadowy Lady

Today I decided to use my m.a.c shadowy lady palette. I like the colors. They're very pretty. Hopefully you like the look... I created a look that you can wear in the daytime but you can also use this palette to create more dramatic ones and what not. Very versatile which I like :) Below are the photos...

As you can see by the photo of the palette, the colors are prettttttty! For this look I used the top left color all over my lid and blended upwards. Top right color blended in the crease and blended softy above the crease. Bottom right color blended only in the outer v. I lined my upper and lower lashes with a black eyeliner and then went over it with a pencil brush dipped into the bottom left corner to soften the harsh line and add that pretty blue to the look.

Hope you guys like it and as always, thanks for looking!

Recreation of Julieg713 Burning Sunset

So I saw this video of a look I really liked. you can watch the video here Julieg713 Burning Sunset... hers is most definitely better than what I did. But I was just playing around with my 88 matte color palette from coastal scents and I quickly tried to do a re-creation of her look. Below are the photos. If you are interested in what colors I used, just leave a comment and I'll post them. :) Thanks for looking!

Cut Crease Look

Hey guys,

So I created a very dramatic cut crease look using my mac pigments. I love the way this came out and it's a look that I've been trying to master for a while. I think it came out really well. Practice makes perfect! Once I get it down completely I will do a tutorial on how I created the look. I listed the products used below all the photos. Click the pictures to make them bigger :)

All the colors I used were my m.a.c. pigments.

Pure White on inner corner of my eye and half way in the middle
True Chartreause on the middle and outer half of my eye
Kelly Green on the crease and outer corner
Emerald Green over the crease and blended upwards and feathered into the outer corner
Black over the Kelly Green and Emerald green on the crease and blended upwards
Pure White blended on my brow bone down into the dark green and black
Blacktrack Fluidline on my upper and lower lashes
Ardell Hotties false eyelashes
True Chartreause and Emerald Green smudged along my lower lash line

I hope you guys like the look and thanks for checking it out!!!
