ALYSSA MILANO goes for a silvery smoky eye with coral-brown lips and looks fabulous!

Begin by applying your base of choice (the cult favorite is Urban Decay’s Primer Potion) all over your lid.  Using the 239, apply a touch of MAC’s Gesso eyeshadow to the very inner portion of the lid, just for a pop of white shadow.  Pick up a generous amount of MAC’s Silver Ring eyeshadow and apply all over the lid, leaving a touch of the Gesso remaining on the inner lid.  Apply MAC’s Black Tied eyeshadow using the 224 to the outer crease, blending outwards and upwards to darken and add depth. With the 239, apply MAC’s Shroom eyeshadow above the crease and underneath brow to highlight. Line eyes with a black eyeliner, like MAC’s Graphblack technakohl, and then with the 219, lightly line eyes with MAC’s Knight Divine eyeshadow.  Apply several coats of ultra black mascara to both upper and lower lashes to finish the eyes.

Get Milano’s flawless, dewy skin with a foundation that dries to a semi-matte finish.  If you only have a matte foundation, try adding a bit of moisturizer to it.  We recommend MAC’s Face & Body liquid foundation.  Using a concealer brush (194), dab on a touch of liquid foundation to cheeks, chin, forehead, and nose. Spritz a fluffy powder or buffer brush (129, 150, or 182) with a mist of water or Fix+, and then buff the foundation onto your face. Work your way outwards to ensure full coverage. Apply more dabs of foundation if you so require.  Set with any loose powder if have oilier skin (or feel the need to) using a fluffy powder brush (129). Brighten up cheeks by using the 129 and picking up a small amount of MAC’s Springsheen blush and dusting onto the apples of the cheeks. Blend outwards using the 129 brush, softly swirling it on the cheeks, and finish by buffing the color into skin with the 182.

For perfectly pouty lips, first line the outer edges of your lips with MAC’s Cream Kiss cremestick liner to get a very defined shape. Apply MAC’s Peachstock lipstick on lips either straight from the tube or using a lip brush like the 316. Top lips off with a light coat of MAC’s Lychee Luxe lipglass.

If you were using MAC Charred eyeshadow, 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 Charred! Feel free to share links to photos of your look(s) using it in the comments.

Do you complement your makeup with accessories? Do you add a scarf during the winter?  Earrings that match?
