In this post Audrey from Pop Culture & Make-Up Addict shares a bridesmaid-inspired makeup look featuring MAC Cosmetics.
My makeup addiction started about a year ago, so I’m still learning which colors go with what.
When I had the honor of being a bridesmaid for the wedding of one of my best friends, I thought it would be fun to visit my local MAC salon for a makeup consultation.
Our dresses were a bright fuschia, and I wasn’t sure what eyeshadow colors to wear. I had the makeup consultation done a week before the wedding to give myself enough time to play around with everything and decide on my look.
The MAC makeup artist recommended the following…
- Eyes: Shale on the lid, Seedy Pearl as the highlight, Blackberry in the crease, Macroviolet fluidline on the lash lines
- Cheeks: Stark Naked blush
- Lips: Plum Dandy lipstick with Morning Glory lustreglass (can’t remember the lip pencil)
I definitely liked her cheek and lip recommendations, so I picked up those… I liked the eyes, too, but thought they were a little too purple and wanted something more neutral.
With the artist’s help, I finally decided on the following look for my eyes. It allowed me to use some colors I already had in my collection.
- Seedy Pearl on the inner third of the lid
- Shale on the outer two thirds of the lid
- Satin Taupe in the crease, outer V, and lower lash line
- Yogurt as the highlight
- Phloof! in the inner tear duct and a touch in the arch under the brow
Here’s how I looked on the day of the wedding!
