Kalie switched up MAC’s Fierce & Fabulous face chart — I love it when someone gets inspired and makes it their own!

Kalie’s Inspiration

I recreated the Fierce & Fabulous facechart. I did change it a bit by adding darker lips, darker more defined brows, and instead of a blush I just did a very intense contour of the face. I thought all of this would make the look more warrior-esque.

Get the Look

  • Eyes: Too Faced Shadow Insurance, MAC Chrome Yellow eyeshadow, MAC Wedge eyeshadow, MAC Vanilla pigment, Prestige white eyeliner, MAC Blacktrack fluidline, MUFE Smoky Lash mascara
  • Face: Bobbi Brown invisible coverage foundation in Alabaster, MAC Strada blusher, MAC Vanilla pigment
  • Lips: Benefit Ms. Behavin’ silky finish lipstick

In city of Sparta woman learned to speak their mind, they had more rights then other woman in Greek. They had to be strong to have healthy and strong children. From all Greek people came to se the beautiful women of Sparta fight. It’s from this culture is took my inspiration!
