MAC's Blackberry


One of these days I will get around to blogging more regularly :)

MAC Blackberry is a color I don't hear or read too much about, but I love it.  It is a matte plum, burgundy brown that is quite deep- this makes it a great crease/defining color for many different looks.  It makes a wonderful pair with neutrals to add some color without being over the top.

I'm back with a green LOTD

Hello all!!

I've been away for way too long!!  I have so much catching up to do with all of your posts.  For all of those who have been wondering, I am alive and well but have just had soooooo very much going on... one of these days I will catch you all up on what has been going on.  Here is a look of the day from this past week, using some HiFi and some MAC.  It's actually one of the few colorful looks I have done in a while... with this heat and as busy as I have been, I've been sticking to my new favorite simple eye.  I will share the look with you soon as it is quick, easy and perfect for an everyday work look :)
On another note, I've been going back and forth with my revlon photo ready foundation since I purchased it months ago.  Lately I have been really loving it.  It is quite thin and watery, yet provides a nice level of coverage.  It is quite comfortable on the skin and imparts a glow- which I tone down with a bit of matte powder.  

For this look I used:

Revlon Photo Ready Foundation
MAC Studio Fix Powder, dusted very lightly to set foundation
NYX Peach blush

ELF eye primer
MAC Sharp to inner 1/3 of lid, just up to crease (shimmery golden lime green)
HiFi BoomShakaLaka to rest of lid (sparkly green with some gold)
NYX Taupe in crease, and to blend out edges of green shadows (matte-ish tan)
MAC Dark Edge to deepen outer V and along lower lashes (deep matte brown)
Revlon Antique Lace on brow and to blend out crease (matte off white)
MAC Next to Nothing on tear duct area (frosty pinky nude)
Black liquid liner

Lips are Rimmel liner- eastend snob and NYX Beige gloss

Thanks for looking!!!
