Because MAC Russian Red Lipglass is so va-va-voom, I went with simple, neutral eyes using MAC Ricepaper Eyeshadow, MAC Soba Eyeshadow and fatty black eyeliner, courtesy o’ MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack. I also like this same basic look with cheeks and lips in either plum or pink. Or, if you can pull it off, pale pink cheeks and beige lips look great, too (tres Angelina Jolie).
To get this look I used…
Over the entire eye (lid, crease and brow bone)
- Dior Long-Wearing Moisturizing Concealer in 430 to prime the lids
- MAC Beige-ing Shadestick
- MAC Ricepaper Eyeshadow
- MAC Soba Eyeshadow
- MAC Concrete Eyeshdaow
- MAC Zoom Lash mascara in Zoomblack (upper and lower)
Upper lash line & water line
- MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack
- Dior Long-Wearing Moisturizing Concealer in 430
- Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder #2
- Laura Mercier Oil-Free Foundation in Suntan Beige
- Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Powder
- MAC Frankly Scarlet blush
- MAC Red Enriched Cremestick Liner
- MAC Russian Red Lipglass
The look is elegant and classic; when I don’t feel like wearing color on my eyes, it’s my default makeup for fancy parties and dinners.
Without high maintenance MAC Russian Red Lipglass in the mix, the overall look takes about 10 minutes. With Russian Red and Frankly Scarlet blush (another bold product requiring patience and care to apply), then you’re looking at about 20.
What do you think? Do you ever rock 40s-inspired makeup?
Happy Saturday, ya’ll! I’m so glad it’s the weekend. This morning I slept in, then read a few Buffy the Vampire Slayer comics while drinking tons of coffee. Oh, it was glorious!
In every generation, there is a Chosen One.
Right now, I’m heading out for a quick run. I just downloaded a few new songs onto my iPod, and I can’t wait to listen to them and run up some hills. Anyone else get excited about working out to new music? I know I can’t be the only one, LOL. First up: Go Girl, by Pitbulll, which has been stuck in my head for days.
Can you spot the glossy red lipgloss?
Hope you’re having a fantastic Saturday. Whatcha been up to?
