MAC To The Beach Inspired Look

Time to use some MAC To The Beach eye shadows because I finally got myself down to MAC in Kenwood mall to do Back 2 MACs!

Ok, I admit - I totally copied a MAC SA in Kenwood Mall (Porsha) on these eyes. But on here they were fantastic!

Of course, Porsha has that gorgeous creamy cafe latte-like skintone that makes colors like these greens sing. On my pale pasty face... not so much. But I still like the combo. And just to let you know, if you want eyes like Porsha's she used MAC Gorgeous Gold as a base before applying Sweet & Punchy. The color turned out very pretty. I was truly jealous of this SA's beauty!


Breakdown

Eyes
  • Urban Decay Primer Potion
  • MAC Eye Shadow in Sweet &Punchy - All over lid, and on lower lid.
  • MAC Eye Shadow in Humid - Blended into crease
  • MAC Eye Shadow in Phloof - Brow Highlight. I think Porsha used Seedy Pearl instead, but I don't own that.
  • MAC Pearlglide Eyeliner in Wolf - My addition since I wasn't wearing false eyelashes like the amazingly gorgeous Porsha.
  • MAC Plushlash Mascara in Plusblack
Face
  • MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC15
  • MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Light
  • MAC Highlight Powder in Marine Life - This frakker is no Highlight Powder! She's totally opaque. I had to blend like crazy not to look like a clown. It goes on very heavy with a blush brush, just to warn you.
Lips
  • MAC Lipstick in Lazy Day
  • Beaute Gloss in Chimera - I have decided I like Chimera by itself better than over the top of something
A Note About MAC To The Beach Eye Shadows
I personally love the fact that this collection of eye shadows included two that are of the main permanent line. I always forget how gorgeous the perm shades are and to be able to see them mixed with the new always gives me new ideas or thoughts about shades I wouldn't have before considered. I've read people commenting on repromotes from time to time like it's a bad thing but think about it - it's really not, like MAC has lost creativity. I think it's great to see these items used in different pairings. Of course, in this case... Sweet & Punchy seemed like a shimmery version of Bitter to me. Anyone know if that's true? I don't own Bitter.
