M·A·C alice + olivia Inspired: Turquoise and Purple FOTD.

It’s been a long time since my last look.  I actually haven’t been wearing that much funky looks these days, so this look is a nice way to change it up.  I find that wearing brights really boosts my mood!  This was inspired by the colours from the alice + olivia collection that’s coming out soon. :)  Oh, and for all our Canadian readers: Happy Canada Day !

Swatches (from left): LIFT Cosmetics Moon Dust, L’Oreal HIP Eyeshadow in Showy, MAC Coquette, MAC Carbon, Auraline Bright Violet

Get the Look

For the eyes, start by applying a light shimmery gold (LIFT Moon Dust Pigment) all over the inner third of the lid, as well as inner third of the lower lash line. Apply a bright shimmery turquoise (L’Oreal Showy) on the remaining two thirds of the lid. Take a clean brush and blend the two colours together by dragging back and forth.  Then take a warm taupe (MAC Coquette) in the crease to add depth.  Deepen the outer V with a matte black (MAC Carbon).  Now apply a bright matte purple (Auraline Bright Violet) right above the black and blend gently.  Mix the black and purple and apply into the outer 2 thirds of the lower lash line.  Line the waterline with a black pencil (Annabelle Ohmygoth! Smudgeliner), and line the upper lash line with liquid eyeliner (Revlon Colorstay Liquid Liner).  Apply two coats of mascara (L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Waterproof).

For the cheeks, buff a light warm pink (MAC Dainty Mineralized Blush) all over the apples of the cheeks, and dust a little bit on the nose and chin.

For the lips, apply a shimmery peach lipgloss (FACE atelier Peach Lip Glaze).
