MAC Azreal Blue and Blue Brown

Blue Brown is a very difficult colour to work with, especially for us cool-toned gals, but by framing it completely with a very cool colour like Azreal Blue, it becomes wearable even if you don't put a black base underneath:

Face: MAC Prep + Prime SPF50, MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC15, MAC Studio Finish NC15 concealer, superfine silk powder as setting powder, MAC Sunsparked Pearl on cheekbones, Canmake Pink Apricot on cheeks (I'm becoming a big fan of Canmake blushes!!)

Eyes: MAC Bare Study as base, MAC Azreal Blue on inner lid and in crease, MAC Blue Brown on outer lid, MAC Vanilla (shadow) to highlight, MAC Platinum on lower lid, essence liner pen, Revlon Lash Fantasy lash primer, L'Oréal Voluminous Carbon Black mascara

Lips: MAC Flash of Flesh l/g







MAC Thunder, Guacamole and Aquadisiac with Cult Fave

I bought Thunder back when Blue Storm came out in 2007, but this is my first time using it - I really like it as an allover lid colour, too bad my eye shape isn't perfectly suited for this kind of application but I hope you get the idea :)

Face: MAC Prep + Prime SPF50, MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC15, MAC Studio Finish NC15 concealer, Pure Luxe You Glow Girl setting powder, Wet 'n' Wild Pearlescent Pink on cheeks

Eyes: MAC Bare Canvas as base, MAC Thunder on lid, MAC Guacamole in crease, MAC Aquadisiac above Guacamole, MAC Vanilla (shadow) to highlight, essence Glitterliner in mulitcolour, essence liner pen, L'Oréal Voluminous Carbon Black mascara

Lips: MAC Cult Fave l/g







Aube Impression Eyes #52

This palette was a Christmas present from my little brother (:! Although the shadows looks pretty sparkly in the pan, on my eyes they go on more likes mattes with subtle shimmer. When you buff them, the shimmer becomes more noticeable.

Face: MAC Prep+Prime SPF50, MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC15, MAC Studio Finish NC15 concealer, superfine silk powder, MAC Pearl Sunshine under cheekbones, MAC Pearl Blossom on cheeks

Eyes: Aube Impression Eyes Palette #003 (sparkly gold cream base allover, light green on inner lid), MAC Surreal in the middle, MAC Fiction in outer v, UD Smog Liquid Liner, MAC Plush Lash in Plushblack

Lips: MAC Headliner l/g

Soft Smokey Olive - Taylormade Minerals

Face: PL Eraser as primer, MAC SFF NC15 foundation, MAC Studio Finish NC15 concealer, superfine silk powder to set, MAC Perky p/p as blush applied with MAC Mini #182

Eyes: MAC Bare Study as base, TMM Moot on inner lid, TMM Grave on outer lid, TMM Driftwood in crease, MAC Vanilla to highlight, essence liner pen, MAC Plush Lash mascara in Plushblack

Lips: p2 Rainbow Gloss Orange Glow





MAC Beauty Powder Blush - Shy Beauty

Face: MAC Prep + Prime SPF50 as primer, L'Oréal Translucide foundation (sadly, it's d/c'ed :( ), MAC Studio Finish NC15 concealer, superfine silk powder to set, MAC Shy Beauty b/p on cheeks

Eyes: MAC Bare Study as base, MAC Deckchair applied wet on inner lid, TMM Brown Sugar on outer lid, TMM Deep Purple in crease, TMM Bruise above crease, MAC Vanilla to highlight, essence liner pen, L'Oréal Voluminous Carbon Black mascara

Shy Beauty is a pretty colour but not a must-have if you have Springsheen or similar colours. The shimmer is not as fine as the shimmer of the original Beauty Powders like Pearl Sunshine or Shell Pearl, it's more like little glitter particles!
