Apparently, a lot of us *love* our MAC, LOL!

  • Eyes: Benefit Brow Zings, MAC Prep + Prime Eye, MAC Infatuating Rose Cool Eyes Palette, Bare Minerals Liner Shadow in Wild Ruby, Sephora Jumbo Eye Pencil in 507 Pink, MAC Plush Lash Mascara in Plushblack

  • Face/Cheeks: Smashbox Photo Finish Color Correcting Foundation Primer in Balance (lavender), Smashbox High Def Healthy FX Foundation, MAC Blot Powder, Bare Minerals All-Over Face Color in Ruby Radiance, MAC Powder Blush in Dame

Describe your look:
“I used MAC 224SE brush to apply Satisfy (the light pink shade from the Holiday 2008 Cool Eyes Palette) all over the eye, focusing on the highlight area under the brow. I used the MAC 275 SE brush to generously apply Bon Fete just to the lid and the MAC 219SE brush to apply Wild Ruby to the crease. I used the 224SE to blend the color in the crease thoroughly. With the Bare Escentuals tapered shadow and eyeliner brush (using the liner end), I applied Wild Ruby as dry eyeliner to the outer corner of the eye on the top and bottom lid. I finished the look with the Sephora brand Jumbo Eye Pencil in 507 in the inner corner of the eye, on the top and bottom lid, and to the middle of the eye where I blended it with the darker liner. Curled lashes and applied two coats of mascara.”

makeup and beauty blog share your look

  • Eyes: Fyrinnae eye shadow in Faerie Glamour, MAC eyeshadow in Phloof!, Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Ransom, MAC Eye Kohl in Smolder, DiorShow mascara in black
  • Lips: MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in Lavender Whip
  • Face/Cheeks: Benefit High Beam on cheek bones and brow bone

Describe your look:
“I used MAC’s Phloof eyeshadow on my brow bone as a highlighter. Then, I used Fyrinnae’s Faerie Glamour eyeshadow dust on my lids up until my crease. I lined both upper and lower lids with Urban Decay’s Ransom eye liner, then lined my lower waterline with MAC’s Smoulder eye kohl. I topped it off with black DiorShow mascara. It’s definitely not a ‘tame’ look, but I love it when I’m feeling colorful and daring!”

Ideas for the next Share Your Look?

What should we do for the next installment? What about looks limited to products under $20? Or brazen looks with red lips? Or what about green eyeshadow looks in honor of St. Patrick’s Day?

    First of all, Karen–you ROCK! I love how your readers are from all over the world 🙂
    All these girls are lookin’ gorgeous. Of course, because I’m a Laura Mercier freak, I’m really loving Fie’s natural look. Lately (I have NO clue why), the LM tinted oil free moisturizer has been flaking (literally, making my skin flake) on me..I wish it looked as flawless as it does on Ms. Fie! Great post 🙂

    • Karen says:

      Hi Fie,

      Thank you for sending in your pic! You are too cute, and I love your glasses.

      By the way, we wear the same shade of Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer!

  15. Karin says:

    WOW, everyone is looking so fresh, really adorable.
    It was such a suprise to see my face between all those other beautyaddicted ladies.
    I totally love Kelly’s look.

  16. Faye says:

    You all look fab, ladies! I’m sorry I missed this challenge. It’s so cool to see our different styles and faces. Maybe you could do a theme one like spring, Karen (I know, how original. Creativity is admittedly not my thing).

  17. Karen says:

    Hi BJ,

    What did you end up going with? Either one would’ve worked — I do loves me some Coralista, though!

  18. Karen says:

    Hi SarahC,

    Sure! That would be fun!

  19. Karen says:

    Hi Tanya,

    Hmm, I wonder why yours is flaking. Are you using a primer from a different line? I’ve noticed that if I use this smoothing product from Clarins it makes my TM kinda flaky.

  20. Karen says:

    Hi Gloria,

    I’ll be doing more of these in the future! 🙂

  21. Karen says:

    Hi Faye,

    That’s a great idea! Spring is just around the corner…

  22. Angelica says:

    I really love this feature, Karen. What a great idea which can serve as wonderful inspiration. Thank you.

  23. Nell says:

    Hi Karen,
    thanks for putting me up. What a thrill to be featured on your site *blushes*
    All the looks are so pretty. And isn´t it great that you have such an international audience?

  24. Kate says:

    Oh, I love Kelly’s, Karin’s and Nell’s looks but all of them are beautiful. I did something like Nell’s yesterday.

    I love seeing other people’s make-up looks. They’re very inspiring.

  25. dimpy says:

    I love karin,Sole and NELLS LOOK ,just dying to try that out………

  26. Catherine says:

    SQUEE! This was so much fun! 😀 I *love* Karin’s and Nell’s looks! So pretty! And Nocturnelle is absolutely *gorgeous* on Liliana. I didn’t realize my lips looked so chapped and washed out when I took the picture, lol.
