Charlene tells us what she used…

I used gold pigment from a brand I’m not sure of, for the inner eye corner (tear drop), a hot pink eyeshadow from my pallette with 88 colors on the lid and blended with the Milani storm eyeshadow that I used on the outer lid. I used the same gold pigment for the brow bone and blended downwards into the pink and black. I used MAC 3D lipglass in Wondershine. I used Tarte -Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara to complete the look.

Originals have a lust for life that can never be squelched! Some classics can’t be improved upon — from Carol Channing to Björk to Blondie, Bowie, and every glam rocker and tightrope walker in-between. This season MAC pays tribute to all the high flyers, in the shades, shadows and styles that have stayed with us for all these years, and some of the late-greats we discontinued all too soon. It’s a throwback to the future. Originals are now and forever.
