I love my MAC pigments – one of the rare times you see “Love” and “MAC” being used in the same sentence here; but I don’t use them enough because they are a tad fiddly. But let me introduce you to 2 of my favourite colours – Naked and Deckchair pigments that I rediscovered recently.
Both these pigments are gorgeous neutrals that give a very subtle glowy look for the eyes. Me loves! They also work well to give a neutral or understated look when you want to pull out the red lipsticks. You don’t want your eyes competing with your lips :D
I did a neutral glowy look with a subtle pop of colour for the eyes which was inspired by Connie (who beats me hands down for awesomeness, so don’t compare :P )
For the Eyes:-
- MAC Naked pigment all over the lid
- MAC Deckchair pigment on lid up to crease
- Revlon Matte Very Violet eyeliner to line
For the face, I’ve been using the Guerlain Meteorites and Benefit Sugarbomb combination lately for a kickass glowy flawless look. I don’t have great skin but with this combination for the face, I’ve been able to take photos with flash and everything and still end up looking pretty much flawless. Even in person – yes I can con anyone :P Score!
My pop of colour for the eyes was the Revlon Matte Very Violet eyeliner. It applies very smooth like a kohl and is a very pretty Violet shade. You can smudge it using the built in rubber smudger which I did to blur the line a little. Lasts the day without smudging and is great for adding subtle colour. Deckchair pigment looks red but goes on the skin shimmery golden peach.
To brighten up the neutral look, I went with Dior Raspberry Serum on my lips – yes I do wear red lipstick on normal days!
This is an easy look that helps you look pulled together and I was quite ready to take on the world!
What colours do you usually use to create a neutral look? And speaking of which, its FRIDAY! Hurray! Any plans for the evening?
