Just a face of the day... but I used inpsiration from Pinterest!

Last weekend, a friend of mine was discussing gold eye makeup with me. At the same time there was this image on Pinterest going around that had me thinking (find it here on my board). I put the two ideas together and came up with a look for the evening.

Face of the Day - March 10


I haven't put on makeup in so long. I really did have fun with this, even if it didn't turn out the way I wanted it to. What I was surprised about is that I went online after the fact and discovered that a large majority of the products I chose to use randomly actually came from the same MAC collection (Moonbathe, 2007). I guess there's a method to their madness.

Face of the Day - March 10
Eyes
  • Too Faced Shadow Insurance
  • MAC Eye Kohl in Orpheus - I first melted it with a match stick then used a brush to paint the outline of the wing. later on I took the kohl to color in the crease a bit and around the upper and lower lashline.
  • MAC Eye Shadow in Hocus Pocus - Mostly used this to fill in the wing.
  • MAC Eye Shadow in Cosmic - Patted all over the middle of the lid.
  • MAC Eye Shadow in Goldbit - Took this into the inner corner just a tough.
  • MAC Eye Shadow in Clair de Lune - Brow highlight. Wish I had applied it first all over the lid. I would have had better results.
  • Benefit They're Real Mascara
Face
  • Mary Kay Mineralize Foundation in Ivory 6
  • MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in By Candle Light
  • MAC Blush in Afterdusk - best blush EVER!
Face of the Day - March 10
Lips
  • MAC Lipstain in Runway Ripened - Mostly on inner corners and almost as a liner.
  • MAC Lipstick in Thrills - over everything.
I did a really sloppy job of foundation this time (shame on me!) but, I do like the combination of colors I put together. Super easy, super fun!
