Start with a clean face

  • Rub MAC Strobe Cream Lotion all over face
  • Rub Smashbox Photo Finish Primer all over face (except eyes)
  • Rub MAC Prep + Prime Eye Primer all over lid

Work on the eyes

  • Brush MAC Brow Set in “Beguile” into brows
  • MAC Gorgeous Gold (ES) in very inner corner of eye (I used the ” Loew and Cornell Maxines Mop brush)
  • MAC Goldmine (ES) on middle of lid (1/2″ Mop brush again)
  • Too Faced Lucky Charms Duo (ES) in outer corners and creases (using L&C ” Mop brush) and BLEND!
  • Sweep MAC Vanilla Pigment onto browbone (I used Japonesque’s #232 brush)
  • MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack on lower and upper lashlines (I used a small Sonia Kashuk angle brush)
  • Too Faced Lash Injection Black Mascara on upper and lower lashes
  • Wipe off any excess fallout with a baby wipe

Back to the face

  • Stipple MAC NC30 Studio Fix Foundation all over face – even the lips (I used an Esscence of Beauty Large Foundation Brush)
  • Sweep any translucent powder over your face to set foundation
  • Too Faced Sun Bunny Bronzer under cheekbones to contour (I used a Size Large Round Mop brush by LC)
  • MAC Blush in Pink Swoon on apples of cheeks (I just used my fingers)
  • Swipe on MAC Lipstick in Hue and finish it off by gliding some MAC Plushglass in Angel Cream over that.

  • Step 4: Take clean 242 brush and apply Sweetlust eye shadow on top of Overcast shadestick on your lid. Be sure to really pack it on there until desired intensity is achieved.
  • Step 5: Take clean 224 brush and blend Girlie eye shadow lightly in crease. (this is used as a transition color to help blend the eyelid color into the brow highlight).
  • Step 6: Taking clean 224 brush blend Sketch eye shadow starting in outer corner of eye and blending inward in the crease. (Note: you want the color to be darkest on the outer part of the crease and gently fade as it goes inward)

  • Step 8: Apply lashes to eye lids and let dry for a minute. You will know the glue is dry because the adhesive will go from white to clear.

Sarah walks us through the steps she used on her model…

Step 1: taking Corn shadestick apply all over eyelid and a little above eyelid by using a windshield wiping motion with your hand.

Step 2: taking your 242 brush, pick up Bitter eyeshadow and apply to inner corners of eyelids stroking outward towards the middle of the eyelid.

Step 3: taking a clean 242 brush (or use other side of brush) pick up Chrome Yellow eyeshadow and apply to middle of the eyelids. Note: pack on the shadow until desired color is achieved.

Step 4: taking your 224 brush, gently blend the yellow and green slightly together so it doesn’t look like the colors have a line between them.

Step 5: taking your clean 242 brush, pick up Electric Eel eyeshadow and pat onto the outer corners of the eyelids. Again colors may need to be retouched for desired brightness.

Step 6: taking your 231 brush, dust Crystal Avalanche under your eyebrow for a brow highlight.

Step 7: taking your 217 brush, gently blend Samoas Silk into the crease, blending the 2 colors into the middle of the crease.

Step 9: apply Graphblack liner to the bottom waterline (inner membrane) of the eyelids.

Step 10: apply Auto-de-blu liner underneath bottom lash line and blend out with fingers.
