Look - Winged Liner for the Red Wings/Blue Jackets Game

And big red lips deserve a BIG RED KISS!!!

So the Red Wings played the Columbus Blue Jackets tonight (first round of Stanley Cup Playoffs). My husband allowed me to go with him - I'm bad luck when I watch games on TV but I have a good track record for Playoff games in enemy territory. I enjoyed the game and Nationwide Arena has such a great energy - I just wish it didn't have fans that had to resort to calling me and my husband "Fat Ass Wings Fans" and going into detail about how we need to lose weight. This harassment continued for about 20 minutes,and he waited to do more of it at the exit of the arena. I appreciate playful banter, but it stops when you start personally attacking fans of the other team. I think my husband was close to decking him. Come on - we're all there to enjoy the show. Fans should have fun and respect each other. Anyway, because of that incident I just wanted to get this look posted and done and out of my mind.

Winged liner is a pain! It took me 40 minutes to get a straight line. And big Candy Red Lips are just hard to control (if you look closely you'll see streaks on my face from where gloss got in my hair and the wind blew around). Not fun, but still nice. The winged liner is a technique I want to master - but it's really hard when you can't see yourself in the mirror and have deep-set eyes with big folds hence the 40 minutes on just lines.

The Breakdown

  • Urban Decay Primer Potion
  • MAC Naked Lunch Eye Shadow - all over lid.
  • MAC Sunday Best Eye Shadow - highlight inner corner and brow.
  • MAC Wedge Eye Shadow - outer corner and in crease
  • MAC Mulch Eye Shadow - outer corner blended on top of the Wedge.
  • MAC Penultimate Eyeliner - dude... just check out the winged eyeliner video on
  • MAC StudioFix Fluid in NC15
  • MAC Lightscapade Mineralize SkinFinish (LE)
  • MAC Strada Blush - lay this on thick like a contour if you can
  • MAC Stray Rose Blush (LE) - just warm up the cheeks a bit after the Strada
Lips - Messy Messy Red Candy LIPS!
  • MAC Prep + Prime Lips
  • MAC Cherry Lip Liner
  • MAC Classic Dame Mattene Lipstick

I think maybe I'll do winged liner every Game Day during the rest of playoffs just to get the practice. What do you think?
