MAC Fabulous Felines:  Burmese Beauty Look

Happy Friday!!   Here’s a quick look I whipped up using the Burmese Beauty quad as the jumping off point…  My apologies — I forgot to take a close-up of the lips for this look!

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by applying Smudgeproof as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249. Using the 239, apply Skintone 2 eyeshadow on the inner third of the lid and pull upwards along the inner crease. Lightly blend Burmese Beauty eyeshadow on the middle and outer portion of the lid with the 239. Next, apply Showstopper eyeshadow into the crease with the 226, lightly blending onto the outer lid. Lightly tap Skintone 2 eyeshadow above the crease. Blend Prized eyeshadow with the crease shade and highlight the brow bone. Bring everything together by applying Black Plum kohl eyeliner on the lower lash line and lightly tapping Skintone 2 eyeshadow below. Finish by sweeping lashes with Film Noir mascara.

For cheeks, apply #15 blush on the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards towards the temple with the 116.

For lips, apply To Pamper lipstick first, and then layer Spree lipglass for a complementing lip.

    This is a lovely look on you, Christine! Makes me regret not picking up the BB quad, but I really did haul quite a bit from this collection…

  15. Ashley Marie

    You’re gorgeous, chicky. Look how fabulous your lashes look when you use something other than plush lash. *thumbs up* looks great.

    Hey doll! You look gorgeous! I love the Korres blush too- very natural! Do you like “To Pamper” or “Call My Bluff” better? I have Fresh Brew but these two seem to have more of a gloss finish. Also curious about “Brew” lipstick, since it is listed as a dupe for “To Pamper”. If you have swatches of Fresh Brew, Brew, To Pamper and Call My Bluff, that would be fabulousssssss! I’m a bit obssessed with nudes! Thank you so much doll, adore your site! ♥

    I really love how the teal reflection makes this otherwise neutral/smokey look appear. Really hot. I HAVE Club, and a sample of Blue Brown pigment, but I never ever use them. Clearly I have to do so more often!

  18. Marie

    Oh my, this has got to be one of your best looks ever. It looks fantastic!

  19. Chiara

    I already bought the quad, now I’ll try to reply your beautiful look!

  20. Janice

    This is such a gorgeous look! I love how it’s neutral but the slight duochrome in burmese beauty gives it depth.

  21. Cheyenne

    Yay!! I’m so happy I can re-create this look!!

  22. Hilary♥

    Aww what a pretty look!! I wanted to get this quad but have changed my now since Burmese Beauty is the only eyeshadow I really wanted from this. I think I’ll get Club instead =) I swatched both on my hand and yes they’re the same eyeshadow with a different name lol.
    Love your beauty tips and blog, YOU ARE FANTASTIC!! ♥

  23. Bernice

    Very sultry ;)

  24. Love this one!! So gorgeous <3 bookmarking to try it SOON

    Gorgeous look Christine. I am tempted to buy this quad but I have all of the substitute shades you listed, so I’ll be wise and skip it. I’m thinking about spree lipglass. What do you think about it for NC45/50 with pigmented lips? I already have wildly refined and I once had lychee luxe, but it did nothing for me.

  26. skintone 2 is only playing a supporting role in this look but it’s my fav of all the shadows you used. burmese beauty is cool too but that’s cuz i’m such a fan of club.

  27. I’m really undecided about this quad. I love the blue brown shade, but not sure I need the whole quad. However, it does work very well together and the look you created is great. And you say it’s dupeable, but since I don’t have any of the dupes, buying 4 pro-pan refills would actually work out more expensive than buying the quad… Hm, what to do? :)

    lovely….the colours look so pretty and rich here…but then the full face open eyes shot it’s almost like a natural look!
    so you got the black plum kohl to work? or are the pics just before the disappearance?

  29. Mamavalveeta03

    Pretty…very pretty! And natural on you. Love it!

  30. amy

    That lip combo is very pretty.

  31. Mia

    Beautiful! Thanks for the substitutions :)

  32. Melanie

    I love that lipcolor on you Christine!

  33. Kayla

    I think this is one of the best looks you’ve ever done! Your lashes especially look awesome!

  34. Bluesky

  38. Cindy

    I just got this quad as a gift for my birthday on Saturday. I was thinking about what looks I could do with it and then I saw this. I have to try this look. I love it.

  39. Sophia

    Very shocked to see mac has Burmese Beauty quad I never knew that i must get it since i am burmese and love the loook <3

  40. Angela

    I have this quad, but I like to go nuts with the coordinating pigment (Antique Green) to kick it up a notch and make it edgier.

  41. Andrea

    GORGEOUS!
