Drawn On Freckles + Pat McGrath Blood 2

1 of 1

About this Look

I’ve been enjoying the faux natural skin trend this month, with barely there contouring along the jawline and cheekbones, a truckload of liquid and cream highlighter, sheer bright blush, and freckles made of eyebrow pencil. It’s a great way to pretend you woke up like this, or to showcase a strong lip. At the time of this writing, you can still buy Blood 2 from Sephora, which I recommend if you’re looking for a beautiful deep deep plum because it is really well formulated and wears very well for a dark color in a classic lipstick formulation. If you can’t get it, the MAC Nightmoth pencil I used to line is a very close match used alone.

I forgot to mention that I lined my waterlines and the outer half of my upper lashlines with MAC Powersurge Kohl. 😉
