Look - Playing with Scary Colors: MAC Parrot and Entremauve Pigment

It may be messy but I'm proud of this one. I've been trying to use colors lately that I don't normally touch and build a wearable look out of it. Sometimes that's still hard to do, particularly with very bold colors. So when Kara's Bachelorette/Bridal Party came along I finally had an opportunity.

Before I begin: Entremauve pigment is still my enemy! It's a gorgeous color, but it gets everywhere! I know pigment has a tendency to have fallout issues, but Entremauve is one of the worst. It's very hard to clean up. It's just so gorgeous, though...

The Breakdown

  • Urban Decay Primer Potion
  • MAC Parrot Eye Shadow (LE) - All over Lid
  • MAC Entremauve Pigment (LE) - Blended n at corner and into the crease
  • MAC Shore Leave Eye Shadow (LE) - Brow highlight, under eye and inner corner
  • MAC Beautiful Iris Eye Shadow - Under eye, blending into the Entremauve at outer corner
  • MAC Mystery Eye Kohl (LE) - Liner on lower lashes
  • MAC Contrast Eye Shadow - Used as liner on upper lid. I swear this shadow makes a better liner than my Prussian eye pencil.
  • MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC15
  • MAC Lightscapade Mineralize Skin Finish (LE)
  • MAC Grand Duo Blush (LE)
  • MAC Studio Tech Concealer in NC15
  • MAC Secret Crush See Thru Lip Color - so awesome if you know you'll be drinking... a lot.
