I'm Back! Greens with MAC pigments.


It has been forever, I know, and my posting has become more and more sporadic.  I have been very boring with makeup lately, and have kinda been on a purchasing hiatus.  I did however, finally purchase MAC Face and Body foundation and am using it today for the first time.  I really like the way it photographs and am quite pleased with the natural/satin finish.... quite nice.  I purchased it in C2 and while at first I thought it might be the slightest bit dark for me, I actually quite like it once applied and set. It is sheer but buildable, and a very thin consistency.  It is my first time using it, and I will need a few days to really decide if I love it or not.

Today's look uses MAC pigments of which I have many, many samples but find myself ignoring them.  Here is a smokey-ish green look with a sharp outer V.

The colors are a bit deeper IRL :)

MAC Face and Body Foundation- C2
MAC MSF Natural to set
NYX Taupe blush- contour
Benefit Coralista- cheeks
NYX gloss in Natural- lips

UDPP  to prime
L'oreal HIP cream shadow pencil- Authentic  as base on lid, blended to just above crease (dark green)
MAC Chartreuse pigment on inner 1/3 of lids (shimmery yellow green)
MAC Emerald Green pigment on outer 2/3 of lids (shimmer true emerald green)
MAC Dark Soul pigment on outer V (soft black with shimmer and glitter)
MAC Soft Brown Sahdow-  crease. to soften edges of color (peachy light brown)
MAC Naked Pigment-  Brow Bone (shimmery nude)
NYX Barely There-  tear duct area, (cream with gold shimmer)
Ben Nye Cake Liner- black  upper lashline
Prestige Waterproof liner- black  waterlines (I really think I like these prestige pencils better than my Urban Decay ones, especially for the price)

Thanks for looking!!!

  3. So glad you're back! I was a little bit worried but didn't want to be a stalker so I waited in the dark for your come back (hum , that sounds like a psycho stalker now !)
    I tend to be sticking to neutrals at the moment too so not much to post (a slight addiction to Wetn'Wild vanity may be ?)
    Who said no green e/s on green eyes ??? That is such a stupid statement !
    I 'be very interested in knowing your opinion on the Mac face and body on the long haul : I tried Nars sheer glow and was so disappointed....
