MAC Dazzlelash & MAC Lash & Dash Collections

Dazzlelash | November 6th, 2008 (Int’l May 2009)

Eyes-wide-shut intrigue. Extravagant new textures are on the rise, creating voluptuous curve, extreme density, entrancing new lengths. Lashes look more intent, dramatically definitive, remarkably separate and distinct. Extra-innovation: the innersprung brush grabs and texturizes individual lashes like never before.

  • Star Brunette

Lash and Dash | December 26th, 2008 (Int’l January 2009)

Brows will balk, shadows surrender, as the Mighty Lash assumes its pre-eminent place! The chic and sophistication of the new: introducing the 42 Lash, diagonally designed for a hard-edged, rocker look (you know who you are)… and the Blinking Cool! Lash, wispy yet dramatic, in separate bunches with lots of curl for an innocent ’60s look. Chelsea Girl glamour, Carnaby Street kick. All this and Hollywood, too: our bestseller lineup of can’t-live-without lashes flutters and favours its fans, and all the it-girls who love them.

Lash

  • 42 Lash A set of synthetic hair lashes specifically fashioned for style and drama. Impeccably dense at the lash line, gradually lengthens into an uneven array of wisps and clusters (will become permanent at MAC stores)
  • Blinking Cool! A high-style set of natural lashes combining length and intensity with a lightly flirtatious non-conformist look. Lashes overlap and fan out to provide a flatteringly luxe-and-lush fringe
  • 7 Lash Natural-style lenght
  • 36 Lash Full lash, creates a naturally dramatic look
  • 2 Lash Long and wispy
  • 6 Lash Long, full, spiky-looking

Looks – Pinks and Browns

This is from a few days ago, when I went up to see my parents with the boy and puppy in tow. Luckily the rain held out, so Mellan was able to get some swim time in! :)

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Apricot Pink pigment (peachy-pink base), Juiced eyeshadow (dirty orange), Pink Freeze eyeshadow (pastel pink), Expensive Pink eyeshadow (pink with peach), Texture eyeshadow (warm brown), Hush eyeshadow (soft pink-based highlighter), Feline kohl power (black), Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Petticoat mineralize skinfinish (raspberry pink)
  • Lips: YSL Forbidden Burgundy lipstick (deep berry), Luminary lustreglass (pink with purple opalescence)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Apricot Pink = Pink Bronze; Feline = Graphblack; Petticoat = Dollymix

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Apricot Pink pigment all over the lid as the base with the 249. On the inne lid, apply Juiced eyeshadow using the 239. Apply Pink Freeze eyeshadow to the middle of the lid. Darken the outer lid using Expensive Pink eyeshadow. Deepen crease with Texture eyeshadow gently patted and blended into the outer crease. Sweep Hush eyeshadow underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Feline kohl power on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Petticoat using the 129. Apply YSL Forbidden Burgundy lipstick to lips, and then top with Luminary lustreglass for color and shine.
