I mentioned in my last look that my makeup is rather uninspired at the moment. Well ladies, I am back! Yesterday, I downloaded so many face charts from MAC’s previous collections that I wish I could paint all of them on my face at once. I recreated another MAC Hello Kitty face chart (in case you missed it, here was the first), called Stately Black. I personally liked how this looks in person. It was a smoky eye with a fresh twist. I never thought I could wear punchy pink lips with a smoky eye, but obviously this has proven me wrong! 🙂 Also, please forgive my weird choice for brow highlight. The sun was in hiding today, and well, it was kinda hard to judge the colours on my skin. 😐 So, let’s get to it!
Swatches (from left): Urban Decay Naked, Urban Decay Creep, MAC Carbon, MAC Undercurrent Pearlglide (this will be repromoted in MAC Holiday 2010 collection! :))
Get the Look
For the eyes, apply a sparkly dark grey (UD Creep) using a fluffy shader brush all over the lid stopping short of the crease. Blend out well using a fluffy blending brush (MAC 217). Smudge a matte black eyeshadow (MAC Carbon) to the upper lash line. Clean off your smudger brush, then take the dark grey again and lightly apply to the lower lash line. Highlight the brow with a matte light beige (UD Naked). Line the lower waterline with a sparkly turquoise (MAC Undercurrent Pearlglide) for an unexpected punch of colour. Curl your lashes, and apply volumizing mascara (Marcelle Power Volume Mascara) to the top and bottom lashes.
For the cheeks, buff a low shimmer warm pink (MAC Dainty Mineralize Blush) to the apples of the cheeks.
