TGIF, my little Sasha Fierce!


Sorry, couldn’t resist. :)I’ve had Beyonce’s I Am Sasha Fierce CD on repeat today…

Ms. Fierce is Beyonce’s sensually aggressive stage alter-ego, and since I was feeling a little *fierce* today myself, I thought I’d explore the concept with this silver, blue and peach face of the day.

It incorporates tidbits from MAC’s recent Magic, Mirth and Mischief.

I used the Surprise Me face chart as a loose guide, adapting it to work a little better with my skin tone.

The blue comes courtesy of MAC Mineralize Eyeshadow in Blue Sorcery (that’s it above), and the peach lips from Dazzleglass in Phiff! and MAC’s Lipstick in Surprise Me.

On my cheeks, I added a pinch of peach with the Hocus Focus Colourful Face Kit from MAC Holiday 2009…

To round things out, some oldies but goodies from MAC’s permanent line — Paint Pot in Painterly, Eyeshadow in Arena and their Lip Pencil in Spice.

What do you think? Am I ready for my Friday night out with Tabs (today was his pay day)? πŸ™‚

What about the Blue Sorcery duo? Yay or nay? I’m mostly yay (love the blue shadow) but not all too crazy about the fallout from the silver side (it left a blizzard of silver glitter all over my face!).

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. What’s on the agenda for tonight? Here at MBB HQ the fun never stops, LOL! I’m on my way to Sears to buy vacuum bags. Look out, world!

    This shadow is stunning! I’m not a fan of all the crazy glitter either, but nobody’s perfect! I have a similar shadow by Lancome, it’s a really pretty turqoise. Now that yes, could be considered perfect πŸ˜€
    Loving the look Karen, you’ll be turning lots of heads over at Sears!

    You looks gorgeous Karen! I am scared of bright and colorful eyeshadow but this looks perfect!

  4. Christy says:

    I love Blue Sorcery! It’s so pretty, but I agree I don’t like the silver side. I was thinking of using it as a tearduct color more so than anything else.

    You look lovely and turquoise suits you. I am all for blue eyeshadows blended with the right colours. I love Blue Sorcery and wore it 3 times since I got it. The last time I wore it, I used Devil May Care with it with MAC Copperplate in the crease; for cheeks I wore Fun and Games; and lips I used Sublime Shine Dazzleglass Creme. I have pictures up for that look. As for the chunky silver side, try spraying your brush with MAC Fix + and use Bare Study Paint Pot underneath as a primer, I find that it reduces the fallout quite a bit.

    The more turquoise-y blue looks AMAZING… but I agree, I’m not really a fan of the lighter shade, either. Either way, you look great! Stunningly awake and alert (the exact opposite of how I feel right now, haha)

    Go rock the socks off the Sears employees =D

  8. Elle says:

    I think it looks great on you, but I hate hate HATE how MAC does that weird thing with their holiday mineralized shadow and put in that one weird stripe/patch/cresent/whatever-shaped element in it that just spills glitter all over your face. Not cool. But yeah, looks great on you!

  9. Kypris says:

    Ooh, I’m not usually great with lighter blues on my eyes. It looks amazing and hot on you though! It really pops without looking out of place! Love it πŸ™‚

  10. Citrine says:

    Haha, your eyes and teeth match your necklace!

  11. Rebecca says:

    Boo for fallout! But at least the eye looks fierce… Sasha Fierce indeed πŸ˜‰ I’m not usually a huge fan of blue eyeshadow, but I really like this look.

    Oooh I love that duo! I will have to pick that one up!

  13. MichikoFliz says:

    Hey Karen, what do you think is the closest colour to blue sorcery in the permanent line? I want to spend less!

  14. Eva says:

    I LOVE this look on you. I’ll have to go buy one of these blues as well.

  15. Marisol says:

    You look great as always. That lip color is stunning.

    This weekend will be a relaxing one. I realized that I won’t have any free weekends from now until the end of the year so I am on a mission to clean my apt and get rid of things that I don’t need or want anymore. Donate them if possible. Should’ve done this when I moved to SF but didn’t And guess what… I still have a box or two to unpack… after almost 10 months of being in SF.

    Have a great weekend!

    Gorgeous look! Really love the blue!

  17. Kelly says:

    Now that is a look I can totally rock! I love it on you, so pretty!

    Tonight is very low key. Ate leftovers for dinner then watched Zoolander for the millionth time on DVD πŸ™‚

    that blue looks awesome! it’ll make a excellent party look.

  19. Kate & Zena says:

    I’m eh on the duo. Me and fallout don’t mix.

    What was Tabs’ payday? More Kibble?

    My plans tonight is to gear up for tomorrow. Tomorrow is Essay day, i.e. time to stop procrastinating and start working.

    In other news, I went to see the hand/wrist orthopaedic surgeon today. CTS (aka Carpal Tunnel Syndrome) is officially out, thank God. This means no painful nerve conduction test, yay! I officially have hyper-elasticity in both wrists. I’ve been condemned to go to rehab for fluidotherapy, desensitization and wrist strengthening twice a week for month.

    Did I mention I loathe physical therapy? I was so happy to graduate that when I was nine after nine years of therapy once a week. I am not looking forward to going back to p/t.

    You still have bag vacuum? Mine died in 2004. We went through 3 bagless models before we got the Dyson. That is one lean, mean, Zena-fur-sucking machine. I love me Dyson.

  20. I’m actually intrigued by that Hocus Focus Holiday Face Kit. Those looks like some very flattering colors!

    Hi Karen! I like this makeup, few years ago I used to wear it too, sometimes even like a smoky eye combination, but since my eyeshadow was over I didn’t bother to buy a new one in the same shade :p

  23. Glosslizard says:

    I love the look! The turquoise blue eye is so lovely and you wear it so well! I’d prolly try to use one of my other million-and-one bluey-green (or greeny-blue) shadows to recreate it though, I’m just not really a fan of MAC’s mineralize shadows!

  24. Sarah says:

    I absolutely love this look on your..stunning. The turquoise makes your eyes pop and your skin looks fantastic.
    Two thumbs up!

  25. J says:

    I loooove the look, it’s a pretty pop of colour that’s wearable πŸ™‚

    I wish MAC would figure it out when it comes to their mineralize eyeshadows, they’re terribly inconsistent πŸ™

  26. Noemi says:

    It’s so pretty ! It looks so good on you . I tend to shy away from bright colors …at least from wearing them not buying them ;] . They’re just so darn pretty sometimes . Very nice look !

  27. Jamie says:

    I bought the Blue Sorcery eyeshadow a couple weeks ago and I bought it on a whim. I did do a swatch at the counter and fell in love with it so I didn’t think I would have a problem when I got home. The next day I was sadly mistaken. It took me 20 minutes just to figure out how to use the silver, and in the end I never even used it. I HATE the fact that it has so much fallout, it’s kind of useless. I do have to say I am in LOVE with the teal side. If anybody finds out how to use the silver side, feel free to let me know cause I’m stuck.

    Hi Noemi,

    So do I. I’m usually more into neutrals and conservative colors, but I try to let myself go buck wild with brights from time to time.
