Face of the Day (FOTD) – MAC Woodwinked Shadow with MAC Sweet Sage Fluidliner

Published in: Face of the Day (FOTD), MAC Makeup

I got this amazing SLR camera and I’m on a picture kick so here’s another Face of the Day with a little splash of green color on the eyes!

I was feeling the gold vibe after looking at the Photoshaped pics today so I decided to play with MAC Woodwinked and see what would happen. I did this easy, subtle look (this seems to be my dominant makeup theme, LOL) that pairs Woodwinked with a splash of green liner and powder on the top lid. You can’t really tell straight off that I’m wearing color, but when I blink my eyes I can see a flash of green! If you are color-shy like me then try this – it’s totally not scary!


Here are the eyes.

Looking down

I’m watching you!
I used (working from brow downward)
1. MAC Concrete shadow on brow, with 266 brush
2. MAC Bare Canvas Paint on entire lid, with 217 brush
3. MAC Ricepaper shadow over entire lid, with 252 brush
4. MAC Woodwinked shadow over outer half of lid and crease (concentrating the most color on the outer part of eye), with 217 brush
5. MAC Mulch shadow in outer v, with NYC cosmetics eye shadow applicator
6. MAC Sweet Sage Fluidline on upper lash line, with 209 brush
7. Maybelline Antique Jade shadow layered over MAC Sweet Sage upper liner, with NYC cosmetics eye shadow applicator
8. MAC Sweet Sage Fluidline on lower lash line, with 209 brush
9. MAC Woodwinked shadow layered over MAC Sweet Sage lower liner, with NYC cosmetics eye shadow applicator
10. MAC Select Moisturecover concealer, with LORAC 103 brush
11. Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder #2, with 217 brush
12. Max Factor 2000 Calorie Waterproof mascara in black

After the eyes were done, I did the usual round of Laura Mericer Oil-Free Foundation Primer, Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer in Almond mixed with Laura Mercier Oil-Free Moisturizer in Sunset Beige and topped with Laura Mercier Translucent Powder.

The cheeks: one layer of Neutrogena Soft Suede Soft Clolr blush, then a layer of Nars Torrid blush, with MAC 129 brush

And last, but not least, lips were lined with Rimmel 1000 Kisses Lip Liner in Daring Nude, then MAC Viva Glam II lipstick, topped with a layer of MAC Gemshine Lipgelee.

And here’s the final look in two different light levels.



I think that I will keep playing with this look – there are so many potential ways to change the eyes by layering different shadows and pencils.

One more day ‘till San Francisco Fashion Week starts!

Here’s the last of the MAC backstage looks on the MAC website, Taylored.



This is by far my favorite group of look Maybe I’ll use this as inspiration on my current quest to be no longer SOS (Scurred of Scarlet.)

Yay, it’s Tuesday. I raise my cup of coffee to you and to your fabulousness. Cheers!

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    karen.. i love the look, but could you show your eyes closed in a different (lighter) light setting? i’ve been playing around with neutral colors too (diff combos, diff intensities) trying to find my perfect low maintenance look; hence no fotds =p you always have fab cheeks =)

  2. Karen says:

    hi kia! hmmm … i’ll sift through my pics to see if i can find any eye pics with brighter lighting. i am still trying to work it out with the new camera (it’s got a jillion pixels so everything – i’m talking EVERYTHING – shows up. i’m not quite ready for the universe to peep my upper lip hairs, ya know?). so it’ll be trial and error here for awhile with the FOTD’s, lols. i think you will like this combo though. it’s kinda j.lo, and if you take it up a notch and pack on the green it’s like j.lo goes to the jungle in miami! and thanks for the cheek complement! i owe it all to the 129!

    Hey Karen! I am also going to be attending Wednesday’s dinner and at least Thursday’s show. I’m Christine over at Temptalia.com (another beauty blog!).

  4. Pinay says:

    OOOOOOh I love the color combo. I gotta try the green combos too that you mentioned in another posting. I keep seeing green shadow as the ‘in’ thing this Fall.

  5. Karen says:

    Hey Pinay, If you like greens then pick up this month’s issue of Allure magazine (you know … the one with Britney on the front!). There is a photospread of the makeup looks for fall and there’s pic that features sage green lined eyes. Very pretty, especially for brown eyes. And thanks for stopping by! You are always welcome here =)

  6. Karen says:

    Hi Christine! Wow, I know your blog from specktra! That’s awesome that you are going too. Please be sure to come by and say HI!

  7. Christine says:

    I’ll do my best, Karen, and you must do the same if/when you spot me! I’m terribly nervous – never done any in-person media stints!

  8. Karen says:

    Christine, you will be ***great***! I’m nervous too, just because I typically do travel writing and this will be my first time covering a fashion event. If you have any last minute questions regarding interviewing or anything like that I’d be happy to help =)

  9. Christine says:

    I emailed you with some last minute questions 🙂 My boyfriend (who is responsible for my site, other than the writing of content) is like, “You are going. No matter what!”
