To start off this look, I applied the Laura Mercier foundation using the Becca perfecting brush. I love how flawlessly this applies cream products! Next, I dabbed the ELF lifting concealer under my eyes and blended with my fingers.
After applying MAC Spiked to the brows, I primed my eyelids with MAC Camel Coat, and brushed NARS Yamal all over the lid and up to the crease. Yamal is a matte camel taupe shade, making it highly versatile!
Next, I applied MAC Deep Blue Green pigment all over the lid, working in small sections. Pigments are messy, so I recommend working with a small brush. I actually used a small double-ended Stila brush to use with my pigments. After applying, I blended a little more of Yamal into the crease.
Next, I used MAC Matte mixing medium and dabbed a little bit on the inner half of the lid. This helps the glitter stick to the eyes and stay all day. I packed it on the inner lid and gradually lessened the intensity on the way outward.
To finish the eye, I blended Yamal again into the crease until I reached the desired intensity, and blended the brow bone with L’Oreal Endless Pearl. When the shadow was finished, I applied ELF liquid liner in black very lightly to the upper lid, and used Jane’s brown pencil in my waterline. This stays all day long for me without a problem, and it is less harsh than black. Finally, I topped off the eye with Too Faced Lashgasm mascara.
For the rest of the face, I went back to the Becca perfecting brush and applied NARS Laguna to the outer perimeter of my face to add a warm glow, swept NARS Douceur on my cheeks, and applied Becca Nefertiti lightly to the tops of my cheekbones, and a touch on my forehead and chin.
To finish everything, I lightly dusted TheBalm Sexy Mama powder all over to set.
Lastly, I applied MAC Nocturnal Instincts mattene lipstick. This came out last year, but you may be able to find it at a CCO.
For a more dramatic look, you can add false lashes. Look for a full review of the MAC pigment set tomorrow, and thanks for reading!
