Bright Makeup: Hot Pink Smoky Eyes
Go fierce or go home! Dark, sultry smoky eyes with a hot pink edge paired with equally in-your-face pink lips.
You will need the following…
- Eyes: MAC Soft Ochre Paint Pot (neutral beige base), MAC Fuchsia Pigment (fuchsia), Sugarpill Dollipop Eyeshadow (matte fuchsia pink), Sugarpill Bulletproof Eyeshadow (matte black), MAC Stars ‘n Rockets Eyeshadow (fuchsia-purple), MAC Beautiful Iris Eyeshadow (iridescent icy purple), MAC Blacktrack Fluidline (black liner), Urban Decay Lust 24/7 Liner (purple), MAC Plushlash Mascara (black)
- Face: Make Up For Ever HD Foundation (140), Laura Mercier Setting Powder
- Cheeks: MAC Sculpt Sculpting Powder (dark nude), MAC Shell Pearl Beauty Powder (soft champagne-peach)
- Lips: MAC Petals & Peacocks Lipstick (hot pink), MAC True Babe Lipstick (hot pink)
- Brushes: 226 (fluffy crease brush), 219 (pointed crease brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 168 (fluffy angled brush), 165 (tapered blush brush), 130 (flat stippling brush)
- Substitutes: Shell Pearl = Soft & Gentle; Petals & Peacocks = Girl About Town; True Babe = Pink Poodle
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 Fuchsia pigment all over the lid area. Using the 239, apply Dollipop eyeshadow on the entire lower eyelid area. Darken the outer third of the lid with Bulletproof eyeshadow with the 226, gently brushing it into the outer crease. Lightly blend Stars ‘n Rockets eyeshadow, with the 226, in the crease. Lightly tap and brush Stars ‘n Rockets eyeshadow directly above the crease to soften. To finish the eyeshadow look, sweep Beautiful Iris eyeshadow as a highlighter on the brow bone and inner tearduct. Bring everything together by applying Lust eyeliner on the lower lash line and Stars ‘n Rockets eyeshadow lightly patted below the lower lash line with the 219 brush. Finish by applying Blacktrack fluidline to the upper lash line with the 208, and then sweeping lashes with Plushlash mascara.
For cheeks, apply Sculpt sculpting powder to the hollows of the cheeks to lightly contour and blend onto cheeks with the 168. To highlight, apply Shell pearl onto the cheekbones with the 165.
For lips, apply Petals & Peacocks lipstick first, and then layer True Babe lipglass for a complementing lip.
Bright Makeup: Yellow, Orange, & Red
Does anyone else find it hard to get back into the swing of things? Whenever there’s been a disruption to my usual day-to-day routine (traveling for business, vacation, getting too sick to move, etc.), I just find it so difficult to fall back into my schedule! Grrr!
I’ll be heading over to MAC once they open (boo, being on the west coast!) to pick up the four missing items from Liberty of London and will update the review once I’ve done that. Who else is visiting their local MAC to grab some Liberty of London goodies?
You will need the following…
- Eyes: Sugarpill Goldilux ChromaLust (metallic gold base), Sugarpill Buttercupcake Eyeshadow (primary yellow), Sugarpill Flamepoint Eyeshadow (bright orange), Sugarpill Love+ Eyeshadow (nearly matte red), MAC Femme-fi Eyeshadow (neutral highlighter), Urban Decay Lucky 24/7 Liner (copper), MAC Plushlash Mascara (black)

For eyes, start by applying Goldilux as your eyeshadow base with the 239 and water-based mixing medium (or water). Using the 239, apply Buttercupcake eyeshadow on the inner third of the eyelid. Next, apply Flamepoint eyeshadow on the middle third of the eyelid and lightly blend with the inner corner. Darken the outer third of the lid with Love+ eyeshadow with the 239, gently brushing it into the lower crease. Lightly blend Love+ eyeshadow, with the 239, on the outer corner and lid. Lightly tap and brush Flamepoint eyeshadow directly above the crease to soften. To finish the eyeshadow look, sweep Femme-fi eyeshadow as a highlighter on the brow bone. Bring everything together by applying Lucky eyeliner on the lower lash line. Finish by sweeping lashes with Plushlash mascara.
For cheeks, apply Prim & Proper blush to the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards towards the temple with the 116. Highlight cheeks with Polished cheek colour with the 188 for a soft sheen.
For lips, apply Ever Hip lipstick first, and then layer True Babe lipglass for a complementing lip.
Lipglasses: Rock Out, True Babe
MAC Riveting Collection: Lipglass Review, Photos, Swatches
Lucky for your pocketbook, there are only two lipglasses to take a look at from MAC’s Riveting Collection: Rock Out (officially described as a light icy silver with pearl) and True Babe (officially described as a creamy mid-tone bright blue pink). I don’t think neither are must-haves in the sense that unless you’re drawn to one of these and you don’t have something similar at home, you don’t absolutely have to have these too.
Lipglass ($14.00 U.S. / $16.50 CDN)
- Rock Out is a sheer, silver shimmered gloss with a very sheer, kind of whitish-silver color base. I didn’t find it all that wearable on its own, personally. It reminded me of an older limited edition lipglass–Lightning–as well as more recently released She-Zam dazzleglass (from holiday ’09). Obviously, since it’s a lipglass, it has a totally different texture and feel than a dazzleglass–it’s thicker, stickier, cheaper (and you get more), and lasts longer (because it’s stickier).
- True Babe is a creamy, rich bright pink with cool blue undertones. It’s like a cooler, more fuchsia version of Pink Poodle lipglass. I can’t think of any immediate dupes off the top of my head, but I know MAC has released quite a few hot pink lipglasses in the past few years. What’s nice about this one is that the coverage is nice and opaque, and despite its creamy look, it doesn’t settle into lip lines as much (and is not noticeable from normal viewing distance–aka, not 10x magnification of my lips!).
What do you think? Either of these for you?
