Here’s a fun look using Viva Glam Gaga! I wanted to warm up the eyes a bit, so I opted for a mix of pinks and purples with gold eyeliner (which was where I drew a lot of the warmth from), to pair it with the cooler pink from the lipstick. Happy Thursday!
Don’t forget, Spring Colour Forecast hits stores today!
Substitutes: Stacked 1! Pigment = Kitschmas; Lala = Fuchsia Pigment; Very Violet = Violet Pigment; Black Tulip = Nocturnelle (in this look); Femme-fi = Ricepaper; Azalea Blossom = Well Dressed; Viva Glam Gaga = Snob; Cultureclash = Nymphette (not the best dupe)
For eyes, start by applying Soft Ochre paint pot as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249. With the 239 and water-based mixing medium (or water), apply Stacked 1! light lilac pigment all over the lid area. Using the 239, apply Stars ‘n Rockets eyeshadow on the inner third of the eyelid. Next, apply Lala eyeshadow on the middle third of the eyelid and lightly blend with the inner corner. Darken the outer third of the lid with Very Violet eyeshadow with the 239, gently brushing it into the lower crease. Lightly blend Black Tulip eyeshadow, with the 239, on the outer corner and lid. Lightly tap and brush Beautiful Iris eyeshadow directly above the inner tear duct for iridescence. To finish the eyeshadow look, sweep Femme-fi eyeshadow as a highlighter on the brow bone. Bring everything together by applying El Dorado eyeliner on the lower lash line and sweeping lashes with Plushlash mascara.
For cheeks, apply Azalea Blossom blush ombre to the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards towards the temple with the 116.
For lips, apply Viva Glam Gaga lipstick first, and then layer Cultureclash lipglass for a complementing lip.
MAC Lipglasses: Hush, Hush Rose, Electric Fuchsia, Cultureclash
MAC Spring Colour Forecast: Lipglasses Reviews, Photos, Swatches (Part 1)
Each part has a few lipglasses; the first two parts have three each, while the last two parts have two each. This gives us a grand total of ten freakin’ lipglasses to take a look at, whew! This part includes the lipglasses from parts one and two, and the second part will contain lipglasses from parts three and four. (I split posts to help ensure that our server can sustain the load of people downloading images–and preferably, not 50 images at once!) My favorites: Hush, Hush Rose, Electric Fuchsia, and Kumquat. What are your favorites?
Spring Colour 1 Forecast — Lipglasses
Hush, Hush Rose is a semi-sheer strawberry pink with golden shimmer. I imagine this looking a bit raspberry on those with more red pigmentation in their lip color.
Electric Fuchsia is a bright magenta fuchsia with violet shimmer. This is purpler than Magnetique and not as creamy–a little sheerer, more shimmery.
Cultureclash is a sheer baby pink with yellow undertones. It looks more medium-pink when swatched, but when applied, I found it rather milky pink with silver sparkle.
Spring Colour 2 Forecast — Lipglasses
Kumquat is a tangerine orange gloss with lighter orange shimmer. When applied, I see a good dose of shimmer and glossiness, with some of the tangerine color coming through.
Cha Cha is a medium pink with lighter pink and almost fuchsia shimmer in it. It applies semi-opaque to my lips and gives me a pinker, shimmery pout.
Ember Glow is an orange-y beige cream gloss with a smidgen of shimmer. On my lips, it looks creamy and gives decent color. I do find creams have a tendency to settle into lip lines and not go on as evenly as I’d like, but this one wasn’t too bad.
