Brown & Green Look with Chantecaille

Brown & Green Look with Chantecaille

This is one of the looks I wore when I swatched the Sheen Supreme lipsticks.

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by applying Smudgeproof as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249.  Apply the base eyeshadow to the inner half of the lid and tearduct with the 239.  Next, apply the eye color eyeshadow to the outer half of the lid with the 239.  Then, apply the eye definer eyeshadow to the outer fourth of the lid.  Highlight the brow bone with base eyeshadow with the 239.  Apply #12L liner on the lower lash line.  Finish by sweeping lashes with Inimitable Intense mascara.

For cheeks, apply Tea Petal cremeblend blush on the apples of the cheeks and pat towards the temple with fingers.

For lips, apply Kissable slimshine for a complementing lip.

On really, really special occasions (like graduation), then I will ensure really even coverage for face, neck, and shoulders (assuming what I’m wearing shows shoulders).  I use something sheer and lightweight like MAC Face & Body.

MAC Sheen Supreme: Overall & Recommendations


MAC Sheen Supreme: Overall & Recommendations

OVERALL, it’s a good formula, and I think it adds some nice shades to MAC’s permanent range.  I feel like there’s easily at least one shade that catches the eye.  There is a good balance of cool, more neutral, and warm shades here, as well as brights and darks and everyday kind of shades.  The majority of shades have some past shade compares closely, but for the most part, each shade doesn’t have five shades that are exactly the same either.  (One must always keep in mind that not everyone has every past or present shade, and so what is easily duped for one person is a new holy grail shade for another!)  It’s a solid release, and even better because they are permanent.

Video Tutorial: Britney Spears “Hold It Against Me” Makeup by Make Up For Ever

Make Up For Ever Britney Spears “Hold it Against Me” Make Up Look

Make Up For Ever’s David Hernandez dishes on how to get Britney’s eye-catching make up look from her new music video for “Hold It Against Me.”

Complexion

  • Prep the skin with HD Microperfecting Primer by applying to the entire face with Nylon Brush #30N.
  • Next, apply HD Invisible Cover Foundation all over to achieve a flawless complexion.

Cheeks

  • Use HD Microfinish Blush #14 to highlight the cheeks, shading from top to bottom.
  • To add a slight contour to the cheeks, use the darker shade from our Sculpting Kit and shade just under the cheekbones.
  • Finish by blending Star Powder #941 onto the cheeks, an iridescent white with silver highlights that provides a soft glow.

Eyes

  • Apply Aqua Cream #4 in white all over the eye lids with Brush #14S. Then, add Aqua Cream #2 in steel to the crease.
  • Line the top and bottom lash lines with Aqua Eyes #2L. Next, add intensity to the eyes with Aqua Black, placing it inside the top waterline with Brush #2S.
  • Apply a thick coat of Aqua Smoky Lash Mascara.
  • For added drama, apply Faux Lash #157 to the middle of the lash line first, then lifting the corners until the lashes are secured in place.
  • Finally, apply Aqua Cream #2 to the outer corners of the eyes and blend.

Lips

  • Apply Rouge Artist Intense #18 in nude as a base to the lips.
  • To add dimension, apply Lab Shine #M16 at the edges and center of the lips.

MAC Sheen Supreme: Dupes & Comparisons


MAC Sheen Supreme: Dupes & Comparisons

If I did not include a swatch or comparison below, it is most likely because I do not own the color to compare.

  • BARE AGAIN is a more opaque version of Hug Me. It is rosier than Cherish, lighter than Kinda Sexy. Woo Me is lighter and pinker.
  • BEHAVE YOURSELF is similar to Viva Glam Gaga and Of RoyaltySnob is cooler-toned and more opaque.
  • CAN’T GET ENOUGH is a little lighter than Sweet Ever After.
  • CAN’T RESIST is slightly less red than Fresh Moroccan. Funbathing is plummier, Rose Maiden is lighter and pinker, Odyssey is much plummier.
  • FULL SPEED is nearly identical to Red Full Stop. Rozz Revival is deeper and redder, while See Sheer is less pink and bright.  Chatterbox and Lustering are really too pink to be anything like it. Vegas Volt is noticeably orange in comparison.
  • GOOD TO BE BAD is a less opaque version of Darkside. Deepest Wish is browner, as is Kittenish. Media has stronger berry tones. Love Peck is also similar, though a touch darker, depending on how you apply it.
  • GOTTA DASH! is lighter than So Vain, more orange and pigmented than Funshine and Blowdry. (I don’t/couldn’t find Ravishing or Shy Girl, unfortunately.)
  • INSANELY IT! is a more fuchsia version of Fusion Pink, while Full Fuchsia is a little too magenta. NARS Funny Face is a little cooler and more purpled.
  • LOOK AT HER! is less red and shimmery compared to Guerlain Ginger, but it is more copper than Bronze Shimmer. Bronzilla is a rosy, pale bronze but not like it.
  • NEW TEMPTATION is pinker and sheerer than Russian Red. I expect it is closer to MAC Red, but I do not own it to compare.
  • QUITE THE THING! is a less opaque, more shimmered version of Rebel. Show Orchid is brighter, more magenta.
  • SUPREMELY CONFIDENT is most like Fleshpot, which is a little darker. Creme d’Nude, Blankety, Myth, and Viva Glam Gaga 2 are all noticeably darker.
  • ULTRA DARLING is a touch darker than NARS Niagara, bit more muted than MAC Crosswires, and little redder than Korres #18. Fast Thrill has more shimmer and less coral.

* I don’t own any comparable to Impressive, though it seems a lot like Modesty and Midi-mauve.
