Now, here’s Enough Said beauty powder blush layered with So Ceylon mineralize skinfinish! :)

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Chanel Beiges de Chanel quad, Blacktrack fluidline (black), Urban Decay Honey 24/7 Liner (gold), Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Enough Said blush (soft gold-peach), So Ceylon mineralize skinfinish (copper-bronze)
  • Lips: Strawberry Blonde lipstick (pink-coral), Sugar Trance (sheer white-pink)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Enough Said = Gingerly; Strawberry Blonde = Skew; Sugar Trance = Prrr

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Soft Ochre paint pot all over the lid as the base with the 249. On the inner half of the lid, apply the lightest color from the Chanel Beiges de Chanel quad with the 239. Apply the next lightest color on the outer half of the lid with the 239 brush. Darken the crease with medium colored brown and drag using the 239. Sweep the lightest color underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Urban Decay Honey 24/7 Liner on lower lash line and Blacktrack fluidline on upper lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Enough Said using the 129, then highlight with So Ceylon. Apply Strawberry Blonde lipstick to lips, and then top with Sugar Trance lipglass for color and shine.

    I’m debating getting So Ceylon now. It looked way too dark when I swatched it….but…. if THIS is what is can do.

  6. I love this look . You look stunning!

    Wow, this looks great. Now I’m supper pi$$ed that my local counter (only source for MAC locally) can’t be bothered to get the collection out. Happens time and time again here. Rarely do they put them out on release day. I really want to buy this but I really NEED to swatch it first, just to be sure. Otherwise, I’d say screw them and their commission and order online.

    • Thanks, Angi! I can’t believe your MAC doesn’t have them out yet!

      Also, as far as I know, MAC employees don’t work for commission (it is one of the oddities of MAC vs. other counters).

    Ooh. I was just Googling So Ceylon and this came up in my results. You look really different here- but a good different! I’m a sucker for a winged liner, and it looks good on you. You don’t post so many “looks” now. No time for FOTD with so many swatches and wear tests to do! Just thought I’d tell you it’s a lovely look anyway x
