I used Copper Sparkle pigment on lid, Firespot eyeshadow (LE) on inner lid, Goldmine eyeshadow on middle of lid, Coppering eyeshadow on outer lid, Cranberry eyeshadow on outer crease, Goldmine eyeshadow above crease and brow, Femme-fi eyeshadow (LE) on brow, Goldmine eyeshadow on lower lash line, Feline kohl power (LE) on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I had Other Worldly (LE) blush on cheeks with Dior Amber Diamond SkinShimmer to highlight. I wore Antiquitease lipstick (LE) with Dejarose lipglass (LE) and She-Gold lipglass (LE).

** These are recommendations for dupes based on permanent colors available — may not necessarily be identical; they are the closest I can think of!

Firespot = Amber Lights (not a great dupe); Femme-fi = Shroom; Feline = Graphblack; Other Worldly = Honour; Antiquitease = Siss (maybe); Dejarose = Pink Poodle + Venetian; She-Gold = Instant Gold

If you were using MAC’s Hot ‘N Saucy tendertone?, what look would you create with it? What shadows would you use? What would you use on cheeks? Anything added to the lips?

Create a look using whatever you want, as long as you include Hot ‘N Saucy! Feel free to share links to photos of your look(s) using it in the comments.

How to play: Create color names, descriptions, and even texture/finishes for the four colors shown in the quad to the left!

What I’d call it:

Spilled Sun Vibrant yellow-gold with white pearl (Veluxe Pearl)

Tropical Truth Bold mint green with yellow shimmer (Frost)

Dirty Sand Deep, warm chocolate brown (Matte)

Shimmering Flats Soft aqua-blue with white pearl (Frost)

Now, it’s your turn!

Can’t wait to see what you all come up with! You’re always so creative!

Therapy Systems Sun Rays SPF 20 ($28.00) is a mineral blush/bronzer with mica, boron nitride, and silk. They are incredibly finely milled, and they blend into the skin effortlessly because they go on so smoothly. Sun Rays is more like a bronzer, and since it’s a powder, you can build up the intensity of the pigmentation to the level you desire. I personally found this applied best using a buffer brush or a very fluffy powder brush, as well.
