Face of the day (FOTD) – Soften your black pencil liner with MAC’s Mulch

Published in: Face of the Day (FOTD)

I’ve been loving on MAC Mulch Shadow lately, it’s really very versitile. My favorite thing to do with it is to layer it over smudgy black eye pencil on the upper and lower lashes. It softens the edge of black liner and makes it really natural and soft for day looks.

Here’s what I’m wearing to work today. I’ll try to do a more detailed tutorial in a few days!

And some eye closeups:

    Thanks Kia! =) I am totally in love with Mulch these days. When I do the tutorial I will try to take better pics with my camera so you can see the layering between the pencil and sparkle of the Mulch. It’s easy yet still professional enough to wear to work.
