MAC Moody Blooms Makeup Look
MAC Moody Blooms Makeup Look

It’s an interesting mix of eyeshadows in the collection, and I wanted to go for the idea of a the lower lash line being the “stem” or leaves with the lid encompassing the colors of blooms.

Eyes

I applied MAC Blooming Mad Eyeshadow on the inner third of the lid and on inner tear duct going up towards the brow bone. Next, I applied MAC Artistic License Eyeshadow to the middle of the lid to brighten. I patted MAC Hidden Motive Eyeshadow onto the outer lid and lightly blended into the crease. I used MAC Deep Fixation Eyeshadow to darken the crease and blended upwards towards the brow bone. I used Burberry Trench Eyeshadow to highlight the brow bone. I used MAC Black Ivy Fluidline along the lower lash line with MAC Copperthorn Fluidline on the inner third of the lower lash line. I used Sephora Sun Tan Eyeliner on the water line to brighten. I smudged MAC Lucky Green Eyeshadow along the outer two-thirds of the lower lash line.

Face

I used Guerlain Parure de Lumiere Foundation (002 and 003) as my base and set with Urban Decay Naked Loose Finishing Powder. I applied MAC Worldly Wealth Blush to the apples of the cheeks.

Lips

I first applied MAC Venomous Violet Sheen Supreme Lipstick and then used MAC Glorious Intent Sheen Supreme Lipglass Tint to try to smooth the color out.

    Hey Christine, do you ever contour for special occasions? What do you most prefer for that?
    Also, what setting powder do you recommend for oily skin?

    • I don’t usually contour unless I feel like the look really needs it. Sometimes I do a light contour if eyes and lips are heavier, so the “blush” is more just a light contouring. I use MAC Sculpt if I contour in general. I don’t have oily skin (I am normal-to-dry), so it’s hard for me to really make a recommendation specifically for that, only that I use Guerlain Les Voilettes or Urban Decay’s Naked Loose and find that helps for me!

        Have you tried Nyx Taupe? Does that colour work on you? I’m light-medium with more neutral undertones, i think, because my asian skin is naturally yellow but i do have redness in my cheeks and generally the center of my face. I think I’ll be close to your skintone, so i can get a fairly good idea about what will work on me if it works on you.

  2. The eye makeup looks so fairy-like! :D

    I love this look, especially the eyes, which I had noticed before in other review posts! I love the use of the violet on the inner eye, something I would never think to do!

  10. WOW! You truly do have a gift at applying makeup I think you could make anything look good. This is amazing I can’t wait to try and duplicate it. I hope it turns out as good as yours. Really brightens your eyes.

  11. Pretty! I’m buying the Blooming Mad shadow if nothing else from this collection so maybe I can do a similar look.

  12. I can completely see your inspiration, it does look like flowers! So artistic! Thank you so much for all your work with this tutorial!!! I will see what I have to replicate the look this weekend, it is just ethereal!!
