I thought I’d use some of the new eyeshadows from MAC’s Love That Look Collection, and I figured I’d go with a pretty obvious, but fun, combination of green, blue, and teal. You can also expect a video tutorial for this look, too
P.S. – I totally realize why I rarely use liquidlast liners. If you don’t get it perfect the first time, you can never quite fix it!
You will need the following…
Eyes: Soft Ochre paint pot (neutral beige base), True Chartreuse pigment (bright matte chartreuse base), Rated R eyeshadow (chartreuse), One-Off eyeshadow (medium green), Strike A Pose eyeshadow (dark teal-blue), Atlantic Blue eyeshadow (bright royal blue), Dreammaker eyeshadow (yellow highlighter), Make Up For Ever #17L Aqua Eyes Liner (light green), Blue Herizon liquidlast liner (blue), Plushlash mascara (black)
Substitutes: Rated R = Bitter; One-Off = Kelly Green; Strike A Pose = Tilt; Dreammaker = Nylon; Fleurry = Springsheen; Lollipop Loving = CB96 (not a great dupe); Liberated = Instant Gold
Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Soft Ochre paint pot all over the upper lid and brow bone as the base with the 249. With the 239, apply True Chartreuse pigment with water-based mixing medium on the lower lid. On the inner lid, pack Rated R eyeshadow on using the 239. Apply One-Off eyeshadow to the middle and outer portions of the lid. Apply Strike A Pose eyeshadow to the outer third of the lid and bring into crease with the 239. Darken crease with Atlantic Blue eyeshadow using the 219. Sweep Dreammaker eyeshadow underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with #17L Aqua Eyes Liner on lower lash line, and Blue Herizon liquidlast liner on the upper lash line using the 208. Apply Plushlash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Fleurry blush using the 129. Apply Lollipop Loving lipstick to lips, and then top with Liberated lipglass for color and shine.
OVERALL, MAC’s Love That Look Collection introduces twelve shades of Starflash-finish eyeshadows with only a few repromotes (Dreammaker, Grand Entrance, Glamour Check!, and Smoke & Diamonds). The shadows have the same feel as last year’s Starflash shadows. They’re fairly smooth, well-pigmented, and have a frosty-sheen to them. None of them are glittery, and I didn’t experience any that were subpar in their color pay off, either. The four liners launched are all repromotes, but the formula hasn’t changed a bit — still smooth, rich, and dark.
MAC Cosmetics Love That Look Collection – Swatches
Lo and behold, MAC has launched Love That Look and Baby Blooms a week early. I didn’t check to see if my Nordstrom’s MAC counter had it out, but I know my freestanding MAC store had it. The artists there told me they received an e-mail this morning telling them to put both launches out today. I’d definitely call your local store/counter before heading out, just in case it’s not out in your area yet.
