    I always did the same look pretty much every time I wanted to wear makeup this week:

    Face: MUFE Pink primer mixed with MAC Strobe Cream (gives you a healthy glow from within and smooths out pores!)

    Bronzer: MAC MSF Natural in Medium Deep or Smashbox Halo Perfecting Bronzer

    Eyes: Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill mascara then curled my lashes to make them really long – this is the only mascara that holds curl for me.

    Highlighter: MAC CCB in Hush on cheekbones and eyebrow arch.

    Lips: Been loving the MAC Cremesheen l/s in “Ever Hip” and with MAC lipglass in “Perennial High Style.” I sometimes change it up to Korres “Natural Purple” lipstick if I want a more mauve/pinkish look.

    Nars cleo (the seafoam green side) with Nars bateau ivres (the light blue side) so pretty together!

    It would have to be the neutral look I wore yesterday! NYX’s True Traupe all over the lid, Smashbox’s Bronze in the crease, and a mixture of a shimmery purple-pinkish color and a bronzy brown from a random Sephora palette. On my cheeks I wore Rimmel ‘Summer Fever’, set it with translucent powder, and wore the Hello Kitty Apple Balm from Sephora!

    It must be the one I’m wearing right now: MAC Cutie eyeshadow quad using Boycrazy on lid and Azuki Bean in crease and on lower lashline, with UD Zero smudged on upper lashline and in waterline. On cheeks, MAC Sakura, and on lips lipbalm with MAC Acid washed.

    …Huh, the MAC Quite Cute collection got loads of my money. Damn these colours!

  6. Naz

    I used Mac Mineralize Compact Foundation on face,
    Mac Sunbasque on cheeks, Chez Chez Lame for highlight,
    Mac Jade Way eyeliner on lower lash line with 219 brush,
    Any brown colour for crease (I don’t remember which I used:) ), Haute&Naughty mascara,
    For lips I used Mac Gold Rebel l/g (from Style Warrior colletcion) onto Mac Lip Erase in Pale.

  7. I tried to do a green EOTD using NYX Mermaid Green & NYX Algae with NARS Night Porter in the crease, but it didn’t work out too well. So I didn’t really have a fave look this week. I will keep trying with that green eye look until it satisfies me. :)

  8. Carrie Ann

    I wore MAC Peek-at-You all over the lid, Urban Decay Binge 24/7 Eye Liner, Benefit High Brow & Bad Gal Blue mascara. On my cheeks, I wore MAC Nuance Mineralize Blush and on my lips, I wore Revlon Coral Reef Super Lustrous Lipgloss (I adore this gloss). Pretty simple, but it looked pretty and fresh.

    So I’m heading out to Hollywood for dinner drinks and to watch Rain at the Pantages and I got on the duo chrome kick after seeing your post on duo chromes. So I got out Space Cadet and did my nails. Then I got Gorgeous Gold with some white and black and did that on the lid and then got some black to cut the crease with fishnet and then used Pink Opal in the inner tear duct area and lightly put Gorgeous Gold in the highlight area. I did my lips outlined in Deep Purple from NYX (filled in too) to bring out the green duo chrome awesomeness of LORAC’S 3D lipglass in Vivid. And that’s my duo chrome over the top but I love it makeup for the day.

  20. Chelsea

    Earlier in the week I did a really colourful look and got so many compliments!
    MAC Juxt (inner lid), Urban Decay Graffiti (Outer lid), Urban Decay Fishnet (crease) with MAC Nocturnelle (defining crease), a fine line of Urban Decay Peace on lower lash line and MAC Dazzlelight to highlight. I lined with Bobbi Brown Black Ink and used L’Oreal Volume Million Lashes. It sounds totally obnoxious, but I felt really bright and happy!

  21. Avatar of Nicole x5starchickx

    my favorite look this week!

    I curled my hair, and wore my new eyeshadow from Urban Decay!

    Eye-primer: Too faced Insurance! then some creamy eyeshadow from revlon as a base

    Eyes: UD shakedown matte with UD electric matte in the middle, then of course a white/skin toned highlighter under the brow line;
    24/7 liners right above the lashes: wiskey and flipside. Then zero on the waterline!

    Mascara: CARGO!

    Face: Make Up For Ever HD foundation; MAC fix powder

    Blush: my new UD score!!!

    Bronzer: (just a little to contour the face) Sephora bronzer disc

    Lips: NONE! all natural :3

  22. Super low on inspiration and motivation this week. I tried a black smokey eye with Gunmetal, Creep, and Hustle…did not turn out well :(

    Playing with my Rock and Republic shadows didn’t go over very well either :(

    The best thing that I did was Summer of Love–Maui Wowie on the inner third, Chopper on the outer 2/3 and above crease, Flash in crease, smog in outer v, highlighted with Wet n Wild’s Brule. Lined with Bourbon.

    What a sad makeup week :(

    I finally took the plunge and shaved my hair down to 1/2 an inch, which doesn’t LOOK great, but it FEELS great! And I feel like you can pull off more dramatic makeup with short hair, so I was rocking NARS Schiap on my lips and used the UD BoS3 for my eyes. Haight on the lid, psychadelic sister in the creasee, with Snatch as the highlight and Haight smoked out on my waterline with Psychadelic Sister again in the inner corner. Two coats mascara. MAC’s Her Blooming Cheek blush on the cheeks. Fun look!

    On Friday, I wore WnW Nutty all over the lid with a bit of MAC Brun smudged into the crease and on the very outer corner to darken it a bit. Gosh Truly Brown eyeliner on top lid and under lower lashes. I used a bit of Shroom (want to use it up but wonder if I ever will) to highlight. MAC’s Pinch O’Peach blush and, also from MAC, Dervish lipliner and Laugh a Lot lipstick. Pretty and fresh looking.

    I had a really fun weekend make-up wise because I went to two weddings so got to glam up a bit! For the first wedding I wore purple so did make-up to match: I used the purple eyeshadow quad from MAC’s Spring Colour Forecast on the eyes, with a bit of Vanilla pigment and a touch of the dark purple from Urban Decay’s Black Palette, with Pink Cult blush, Perfect Topping MSF, Orchidazzle lipstick and Lap Of Luxury lipglass. For the wedding today I wore black with black and cream accessories, and I did a bright red lip (MAC Heartless and Wicked Ways from Venomous Villains) with neutral eyeshadow and Peaches blush.

  40. Another first for me — pairing orange and purple shadows for a very tropical shadow look. I used MAC Goldmine, Juiced, Parfait Amour, and Beautiful Iris — just to name a few shadows. The look can be viewed her: http://cosmephile.blogspot.com/2011/04/bird-of-paradise.html

    I went to an 80s party on Sunday and did a glammed up, goth-purple kinda look:

    Face: MUFE HD foundation, powder, and sculpting duo. I used a dark pink MUFE eyeshadow for blush, using a card to get a cut line on my cheek.

    Eye: UDPP, MAC Fresco Rose PP, MAC Shroom for high lighter, MAC Stars n’ Rockets for lid, MAC Young Punk Mineralized e/s for outer V and crease. MAC Blacktrack for upper lid liner and a random NYX black pencil for the lower rims. Lots of Diorshow Mascara.

    Lips: Black eyeliner for lip liner, MAC Night Violet, and MAC Gimme That! Dare to Wear Lipglass over it for a hint of shimmery pink. It looked awesome.
