I’m going to my sister’s piano recital later on this evening, so I wanted to do something special for that :) What are you doing this weekend?

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Copperbeam pigment (dark gold-brown), Brash eyeshadow (copper), Woodwinked eyeshadow (antique brown), Bronze eyeshadow (dark brown), Spiced Chocolate eyeshadow (matte dark brown), Ricepaper eyeshadow (soft highlighter), Urban Decay Zero 24/7 Liner (black), Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Fleurry blush (soft peachy coral)
  • Lips: Sci-Fi-Delity lipstick (frosty raspberry), Cult of Cherry lipglass (red)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Copperbeam = Tan; Brash = Amber Lights; Spiced Chocolate = Swiss Chocolate; Fleurry = Peachykeen; Sci Fi Delity = Captive; Cult of Cherry = Russian Red

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Copperbeam pigment all over the lid as the base with the 249. On inner lid, apply Brash eyeshadow with the 239 brush. Apply Woodwinked eyeshadow to the middle of the lid. Darken the outer lid using Bronze eyeshadow and drag into crease using the 239. Add depth to crease by applying Spiced Chocolate eyeshadow with the 239 brush. Sweep Ricepaper eyeshadow underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Urban Decay Zero 24/7 Liner on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Fleurry blush using the 129. Apply Sci-Fi-Delity lipstick to lips, and then top with Cult of Cherry lipglass for color and shine.

An easy neutral look, mostly because I felt like a bold lip today :) Plus, I’m probably having lunch with the Mama, and she appreciates a good natural kind of look.

By the way, can I just say how much I love discovering new lip combinations? Seriously. If only it was my job in life!

I used Cash Flow paint pot (LE) on lid, Femme-fi eyeshadow (LE) on inner lid, Nylon eyeshadow on middle of lid, Bronze eyeshadow on outer lid and above outer crease, Woodwinked eyeshadow on outer crease, Evening Aura eyeshadow (LE) above inner crease, Ricepaper eyeshadow on brow bone to highlight, Molten Sol liquidlast liner (LE) on upper lash line, Feline kohl power (LE) on lower lash line, Femme-fi eyeshadow (LE) on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I had Lillicent blushcreme stippled on cheeks with Sunbasque blush overlaid and Dior SkinShimmer in Amber Diamond to highlight. I wore Sci Fi Delity lipstick (LE) with Pink Grapefruit lipglass (LE) and Red Romp lipglass (LE).

** These are recommendations for dupes based on permanent colors available — may not necessarily be identical; they are the closest I can think of!

Cash Flow = Patina; Femme-fi = Shroom; Evening Aura = Juiced + Nylon; Molten Sol = Copper Sparkle (wet); Feline = Graphblack; Sci Fi Delity = New York Apple (blotted); Pink Grapefruit = Lychee Luxe; Red Romp = Venetian + Russian Red

If you were using MAC Woodwinked eyeshadow, what look would you create with it? What other shadows would you use? What would you use on cheeks? On lips?

Create a look using whatever you want, as long as you include Woodwinked!

P.S. – This is a new idea, so please let me know if you love it or hate it…
