This look was supposed to mimic a look done for a fashion show-glitz and glamour winter look- done with the warm pigment Holiday set from MAC with the reflects gold glitter on it... Since we all know that those sets are sold out, we had to go an alternate route.
-brows, Cork e/s
-lid, (in this order) a light colored paint (can't remember the name) all over eye as a wash, Tempting e/s in the crease ever so lightly, metal x shade in Goldspice on lid, and a glitter liner (whitish gold) used on lid for the sparkle. All of these colors didn't match the shimmer of the intended look, so the MA went ahead and used the glitter reflects that I wouldn't be able to purchase until it comes out with The Originals collection day after Christmas. Blacktrack f/l on top lid applied with a flat liner brush. Great results!
-PlushLash mascara. I liked this mascara, lifting and defining, but not as volumizing as I'd like. Not enough coats, maybe?
She wanted to stop the look there... ummm? She thought I'd accept the glitter fallout as my cheek color.. wtf?? Was she being lazy? I have no idea, but I def know the model from the fashion show had more than her eyes done! *angry* Let's try hyperreal foundation? That's on my face... not a big deal. We brushed on some Drizzlegold loose beauty powder...beea-u-ti-ful! Then of course I had to ask for something on my lips... the light lipgloss from Stylistics.. hmm a beige opalesque color... reminiscent of c-thru. (All of this at my request, remember she stopped at the eyes.) Speaking of Stylistics- while I love the compacts, the products in my opinion are a big disappointment. MAC is known for their artistic, bold, makeup art-meets- regular person. These products seem to be made for the average consumer, the one afraid of color. Everything was a sheer wash of glitter. The mystery powders were made for a select few, the perfume smelled familiar and everything else was just a let down, except packaging of course. If you have some pigments/blushes with some reflect gold glitter/shimmery product, you have most of the collection.
Finally, the look.. okay. I got home, touched up the brows and put on concealer. I like this much better. Guaranteed no more sit down makeover thingamajigs unless I know I'm spending the money and have nothing better to do =(
