Neutral smoky eye with MAC x Maria Moretti lipstick

About this Look

Because I wore my favorite dress to my Assembly in Casa Grande the other day, I tied in the greens and red to match it! Probably not my boldest avant garde look, but this is one of my favorite classic looks that I do.

Step-by-Step Guide

  • Eyes: After applying UDPP in Eden to entire eye area, I then applied Orb to browbone, Kid as transition, Folie to define a cut crease, Patina over inner half of lid, Greensmoke to outer lid and lower lashline, UD Protest eyeshadow from Urban Spectrum palette to outer lower lashline and outer V blended up into MAC Folie, put a tiny bit of ColourPop Going Rogue in tear ducts, tightlined upper lashline with Marc Jacobs Blaquer Highliner pencil using a very small angled brush to apply it, curled lashes, used Essence Midnight In Paris for upper wing, Nyx Retractable Waterproof liner in Golden Olive to define lower lashline, then applied two different samples of mascara: MUFE Excessive Lash (too gunky!) , then the mascara I received in the Estee Lauder GWP bag, Sumptuous Knockout because of its brush!
  • Cheeks: Used a bit of Laura Mercier Bronze 03 to lightly contour, followed by MAC Burnt Pepper blush, and OtherEarthly MSF to highlight tops of cheekbones, ColourPop Lunch Money on cupids bow, down center of nose and above brows.
  • Lips: After exfoliating with Jelly Pong Pong Lip Scrub, I lined with Nyx Hot Red Slim Lip Pencil and applied my treasured MAC x Maria Moretti lipstick!

Aww, thanks, Deborah S.! This is my favorite bright red lipstick within my stash and I sure do wish it was a permanent shade!
