MAC Mickey Contractor Look

MAC Mickey Contractor Look

This was a super quick look I threw together to test out the new Mickey Contractor collection (as well as have some something on for taking blush and lip swatches!).  You can see how Ivy is sheer on the first pass!

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by applying Smudgeproof as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249. Using the 239, apply Jaan eyeshadow on the inner two-thirds of the lid and pull upwards along the inner crease. Lightly blend Vivah eyeshadow on the outer corner of the lid with the 239. Next, apply Folie into the crease with the 222, lightly blending onto the outer lid. Blend Trench eyeshadow with the crease shade and highlight the brow bone. Bring everything together by applying Perversion eyeliner on the lower lash line and Ivy fluidline on the upper lash line.  Apply Jaan eyeshadow on lower lower lash line to brighten. Finish by sweeping lashes with Inimitable Intense mascara.

For cheeks, apply Sur blush on the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards towards the temple with the 116.

For lips, apply Yash lipstick topped with Lust lipglass for a complementing lip.

Looks – Silvery Grays and Blues

Hey all! Could you do me a favor and tell me what you think of this description format? I tried to combine what suggestions you have all given to me. In terms of majority, the more explanatory version won, and not sure if everyone saw the edit, but the explanatory version did include dupes for LE items.

Anyway, if you could let me know what you think of this description, I would appreciate it :) Thanks!

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Polar Opposites mineralize eyeshadow duo (bright silver/brownish gray), Cumulus eyeshadow (blue-gray), Nylon eyeshadow (frosty white-gold), Graphblack technakohl (black), Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Dainty mineralize blush (soft peachy pink)
  • Lips: Velvet Teddy lipstick (semi-matte nude), Lust lipglass (pink with brown undertones)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Polar Opposites = Electra/Copperplate; Cumulus = Moonflower;

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Soft Ochre paint pot all over the lid as the base with the 249. On the inner-to-middle lid, apply Polar Opposites (solid side) using the 239. Apply Cumulus to the middle of the lid, overlaying it with Polar Opposites. Darken the outer lid using Polar Opposites (marbled side) and drag into crease using the 239. Sweep Nylon underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Graphblack technakohl on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Dainty using the 129. Apply Velvet Teddy lipstick to lips, and then top with Lust lipglass for color and shine.
