guest blogging from Argentina, MBB visitor Marcela shares her handle a star trip influenced deal with of the day utilizing a few of her preferred products from MAC Cosmetics.
My name is Marcela. I’m no trekkie, having never enjoyed any type of motion pictures beginning with “Star” (Star Wars, anyone?), however hey, there are a couple (or a lot) of you available who do like sci-fi movies, so this FOTD is for you.
Now, this look is a sultry as well as dark, smoky black as well as gold eye — perhaps a bit over the top, however you can tone it down (or switch it up!).
I don’t understand why, however I didn’t line my bottom lash line with black. I’m sure that would have provided the look a bit a lot more va va voom!
Cats & makeup Sweatshirt ??
The long winged liner was influenced by Spock’s upturned eyebrows, as well as the colors by — wait on it — a starry night!
Very original indeed…
Anyway, I liked exactly how it turned out. I hope you do, too.
Here are the products I used:
Foundation: La Roche Posay Toleraine (applied with a sponge wedge)
Powder: MAC Mineralized Skinfinish in medium Dark (applied all over)
Blush: A shimmery golden bronze blush
Contour: MAC Mineralized Skinfinish in Dark
Highlight: The shimmery side of the MAC Mineralized Skinfinish Duo in Dark
Primer: as well dealt with shadow Insurance
Eyelid base: any type of black cream shadow (applied to the outer 2/3 of the lid)
Eyelid inner corner: A mix of MAC Eye shadow in Sumptuous Olive as well as MAC flip (or any type of other bright gold shadow)
Eyelid: MAC Solar bits in Black Ore (applied with MAC mixing medium over a black cream shadow)
Crease: MAC Eye shadow in Carbon
Brow Highlight: MAC Eye shadow in moderate Tone
Tearduct: MAC Eye shadow in Solar White
Liner, Upper: MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack
Liner, Lower: MAC Eye shadow in Flip
Mascara: Givenchy Eye Fly
Lipstick: A flesh-tone lipstick like MAC Lipstick in Myth
Lipgloss: The peachy bronze gloss from Tarte’s handbag Your Lips hold used under MAC Lipglass in Pink Grapefruit
Finish: A dab of a peachy gold pigment in the middle of the bottom lip
I truly have to apologize for a couple things…
First of all, the high quality of the pics. I just couldn’t catch the gold sparkles, as well as lord understands I tried. Second, I’m sorry about utilizing so lots of restricted edition items! I normally splurge on restricted editions that I don’t want to miss, however then I don’t have anything left over to get long-term collection items, LOL! Am I the only one who does that?
For dupes, if you don’t have MAC Solar Bits, I suggest utilizing a black cream shadow with gold sparkles, like Stila’s 24K Smudge Pot or MAC Fluidline in Blitz & Glitz (catch Karen’s publish about these two!), or just any type of black shadow with some gold shine on top (make sure it’s eye safe!).
The MAC Eye shadow in moderate Tone came out with the MAC N collection last year, as well as I utilized it since it’s similar to my skin tone as well as not as well sparkly. I desired a neutral color on my brow bone to keep the focus on the sparkly lid.
Instead of MAC Solar White, you might utilize any type of white or light gold shadow, as well as MAC Lipglass in Pink Grapefruit might be replaced with Lychee Luxe, or any type of other coral gloss.
Something else I’d like to share is a idea I found while doing my makeup.
Well, it’s not much of a tip, however I’d never, *ever* believed of it before. You understand exactly how it’s a bit of a struggle to put mascara on your bottom lashes? Well, for some reason I utilized a sample tube, as well as it worked great! considering that the wand is smaller, it’s much easier to coat every teensy lash, as well as the very best part is that you don’t have to pay huge bucks for samples, right?
So, there you have it, my star trip influenced FOTD.
Have you ever done a look influenced by a motion picture before? Please let me understand in the comments!
Live long as well as prosper!
