Hi everyone! Today's look showcased some of the new Sugarpill eyeshadows and one of the new MAC eye shadows, as well. I will say working with the Sugarpill eyeshadows was a little bit of a challenge today. Every time I tried to blend them out, they would disappear. So, it was kind of like working with a matte eyeshadow, even though it was a shimmery shade. The same thing also happened with lining my lower lash line, as well. Every time I tried to blend it out, it would just disappear. I don't know if today just wasn't my day or what. Either way, I wasn't about to give up on a product or a look. So, I persisted and made it work for me.
Also, I do have a positive comment on the Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash Extra Black Mascara. I tried it today without curling my lashes. I did see a noticeable curl in them after applying the mascara. Usually, I curl my lashes using the Shu Uemura eye lash curler prior to applying eye shadow. I was really happy that after all the work to distribute the mascara through the lashes, I was able to skip a step by using this product. All in all, the product does require some work to use. So, if you have plenty of time to really get in there, it's a decent product. However, if you need to quickly apply and run, you may want to skip this mascara. With all that said, on to the look...
I applied Sephora Age Defy Moisture Cream SPF 15 Sunscreen and MAC Prep + Prime Natural Radiance all over my face and allowed each time to set. I filled in my brows using Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz pencil in Brunette. Using a shading brush, I applied, NARS Thebes duo cream eye shadow, the silvery shade from the eye lid to the crease. I took Sugarpill Diamond Eyes eye shadow from the Cold Chemistry Collection and packed it on the inner eye lid. Next, I applied MAC Sex & The Oyster eye shadow (veluxe pearl) on the remaining eye lid. On the outer corner, I used Sugarpill Elemental Chaos eyeshadow. I blended it out and reapplied as necessary. Next, I used MAC Leisuretime eye shadow (veluxe pearl) on the inner brow bone. MAC Brule eye shadow was used under the brow and to blend. I used both Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils in Gunmetal and Ransom on the lower lash line. I applied NYX Studio Liquid Liner in Extreme Purple on the upper lash line. I coated both upper and lower lashes with Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash Extra Black Mascara.
Although not shown in the photos, I used the following products for the rest of my face:
Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Foundation Powder
MAC Pink Cult Powder Blush (matte)
NYX Peekaboo Neutral Lipliner Pencil
MAC Fresh Air Lipglass
