Do you ever feel like putting every piece of makeup that you’re currently obsessed with (in other words, everything and the kitchen sink) on your face at the same time?
Yeah…that’s kind of what happened to me here, LOL!
I’ve got a major crush on MAC Costa Riche (please don’t let it be discontinued, please don’t let it be discontinued, please don’t let it be discontinued…), so that’s what I based my makeup on today. I’m wearing it here on my lower lash and water lines.
With Costa Riche being a warm-toned brown, I also busted out a few of my favorite MAC browns in the same vein, namely Bamboo, Saddle and Swiss Chocolate, which I think are great mattes to wear in the crease if you like warm reddish and orangey browns (cool-toned gals, check out MAC Wedge and Omega; also very pretty).
So…you might remember Swiss Chocolate from last week’s MAC stress shopper’s diary. I’m actually wearing a bunch of stuff from that same vid, like the two Prep + Prime Highlighters, Shaping Powders and MAC Cantaloupe Blush, too.
See, told ya! Everything and the kitchen sink.
I’m starting to believe that every gal (and blush-loving boy) needs Cantaloupe in their life. It’s like the perfect balance of peach and coral, and it always seems to brighten my look, without competing with whatever else I may be wearing.
Definitely worth a swatch next time you visit a MAC Pro Store. I think it’ll be a lovely spring/summer shade.
Last, but not least, those lips! The star attraction: MAC Heroine Lipstick, a powerfully opaque purple matte from a previous collection, but recently added to the MAC permanent line. It’s available now on counters and at maccosmetics.com.
Now, if you feel like this level of purple pigment is a little OTT for you, you could always swap it out for a neutral lip instead, like this one here…
Anyone else out there wearing warm-toned browns today? Or something bolder? I wonder if we were on the same wavelength… Whatever you’re rockin’, let me know in the comments.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Hope you’re having a great Monday.
