Look - Another Look Inspired by Megan Joy Corkey

I can't believe I'm getting eye makeup inspiration from American Idol. I suspect I might not get much more though now that Megan Joy Corkey's been voted off (finally).

For the life of me, I can NOT find a good picture of what I was going for. This was the best I could find:

And look - they even have a breakdown of her makeup
(saw that AFTER I tried to recreate it)

For the record, looking at their breakdown, I was WAY off on the colors I chose. But I still had fun trying.

In the end I still don't think I got this look as good as I could have, but it was a first pass and it was quick. I don't use MAC Gorgeous Gold a lot but it has more green than I anticipated. I needed something more golden. I also should have tightlined my eyes with black liner, but I have a horrible history of being very bad at tightlining (and it never stays put).

The Breakdown

  • Urban Decay Primer Potion
  • MAC Gorgeous Gold Eyeshadow - over entire lid
  • MAC Charred Eyeshadow - last third and in crease
  • MAC Parrot Eyeshadow (LE) - as eyeliner

  • MAC Plushblack Plushlash Mascara
  • MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC15
  • MAC Lightscapade Mineralize Skin Finish (LE)
