The title of this post screams Summer to me…so it feels a bit strange to be posting this considering we got hit with a snow storm yesterday…but here we are. 🙂
A couple of months back, a fellow blogger – Tina, requested a look from the MAC Pro Palette that I got in December as a gift from my then fiance. She wanted to see Bright Sunshine Eyeshadow and Lime Eyeshadow together in a look.
So let’s see how it turned out:
What’s on my cheeks? Dollymix Blush by MAC
What’s on my lips to make them look so lovely? Oyster Girl Lipglass by MAC (Yes, it is sticky – ugh, but it persists so well through eating/drinking, etc)
Do I even have to ask which eyeliner? No, as usual it is Blacktrack Fluidline gel liner by MAC
This look was really really simple to create. I only used the two shades and they blend together very nicely and easily. I’m hoping this one gives you all the courage to experiment with some brighter colours, it isn’t so scary!
Thanks again Tina for requesting this colour combination and I hope it is close to what you envisioned!
So, it’s Saturday night and a couple of friends came over. We had an urge to play with some bright makeup but my friend was suffering from an eye allergy so we improvised. I did the eye makeup and she did the lip makeup. We hope you enjoy our Watermelon Makeup and Adventures in Candyland!
For Her Lips
She used Make Up Forever Pure Pigment in No 12. (Extremely hot pink) Using a clear gloss and lip brush she mixed the pigment into the gloss and applied all over the bottom lip and half way up the top lip. Using Sephora’s Crayon Jumbo 12H lip pencil in green she filled in the top portion of her lip (you can see what I am referring to here). Then with a black liquid eyeliner she created seeds along her bottom lip to complete the Watermelon Lips Look.
For Shannon’s Eyes
Starting out with Mary Kay Eye Primer all over the lids, I quickly started covering the entire lid in the Make Up Forever Pure Pigment No 12 (the same one that was used in the lips above). I used Lime Eyeshadow from the Pro line of MAC to create a thick heavy line under my eye. I then used the same green jumbo Sephora crayon that were used on the lips to create the dual toned textured look for the watermelon rind. The Lime eyeshadow seemed a little too light, so I then took Kelly Eyeshadow from the Pro line of MAC to blend into the jumbo crayon and make the lines look a little less harsh. Topping off the look with black eyeliner, mascara and false lashes – the Watermelon eye makeup was complete.
We wanted to incorporate some fruit into our pictures, but all we had here around the house were bananas…and well, that just wasn’t going to happen. So we scrounged up some Runts to add a “splash” of colour and had ourselves some fun.
I am not sure you could’ve had a better Saturday night then we did. We highly recommend giving yourself a Candy Shower at the next possible convenience.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
I never thought that the man in my life would tell me something about makeup that I didn’t already know. But that day came and went, over a month ago. When my then fiance went to Vegas for his stag, being the sweet man that he is, he went shopping for me. He walked into a large MAC store and asked what they had there that I wouldn’t be able to get in Ottawa. He proclaimed that I had a lot of their products and he wanted something for me that I couldn’t already have.
He discovered their “Pro” line of cosmetics. They have a great deal of eyeshadow shades, lipstick shades, different eyeliners altogether and a great deal of product that you can’t get unless you are at a MAC Pro store. You can check out the website here: http://www.maccosmetics.com/macpro/index.tmpl. But don’t get too excited, you can’t purchase anything online unless you have an actual pro membership. But if you are instore, you can purchase anything you like. For a store location near you follow this link: http://www.maccosmetics.com/macpro/locator/index.tmpl. (They only have three locations in Canada – Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal). That would make the closest MAC Pro store to me about 2.5 hours away in the heart of Montreal. I will certainly be stopping there on our next Montreal visit. I should probably start saving now….
