Temptalia Asks You

If you had $200, what would you purchase from MAC’s A Rose Romance Collection? Would you pocket the $200 for later?

Temptalia's Answer.

I already spent my $200 and then some, LOL! Definitely the beauty powders (love that rose imprint), Magnetique lipglass, one or two shadows, Just a Pinch gel blush, and maybe a see-thru lip colour or two.

8 Ways to Wear MAC Cranberry Eyeshadow

1. All over the lid. Wear Cranberry eyeshadow all over the lid for a really dramatic look. Sweep a darker shade like Shadowy Lady, Nocturnelle, or even Carbon eyeshadow into the crease to really add drama Use a fluffy crease brush to add smokiness. Highlight with a pink-tinged highlighter like Hush.

2. Paint a sunset. Apply Goldmine eyeshadow to the inner half of the lid with an eyeshadow blush like the 239. Apply Amber Lights eyeshadow to the outer half of the lid with the same brush. Brush Cranberry eyeshadow into the crease using a fluffy crease brush. Highlight with a white-gold highlighter like Nylon eyeshadow.

3. Mix it with purples. Apply Digit eyeshadow all over the lid, then apply Stars ‘n Rockets eyeshadow to the outer third of the lid. Apply Cranberry eyeshadow to the outer crease, lightly, with a fluffy crease brush. Try using Hush eyeshadow as a highlighter.

4. As a liner. Kick up a traditional gray/silver smoky eye by smudging your lower lash line with a black kohl and Cranberry eyeshadow. Apply the black kohl first, then use a smudging brush like the 214, and smudge Cranberry eyeshadow over it. Highlight with a neutral color like Shroom eyeshadow.
