Hey, hey! I’m on my way to the BEAST right now (East Bay in Pig Latin, ladies) for work stuff, but here’s a quickie look I did yesterday with a few items from MAC’s new releases — Sonic Chic, New View and Electro Flash.
Thanks to the texture and quality of the products in these collections, the eyes weren’t difficult at all. I began by priming my lids with MAC Bare Canvas Paint and dusting the dark marbled green shade of Fresh Green Mix Mineralize Eye Shadow duo on the lid and barely into the crease.
Following that, I applied the light green color from Fresh Green Mix onto the inner part of my lid to brighten up the inner corners. To enhance the contrast of the green shades, I dusted MAC Brule, a matte beige, on my brow bone, and then further defined the eyes by lining the upper and lower water lines with Lancome Le Stylo Waterproof eyeliner in Noir.
On the the lower lash line, I used the purple shade from the Odd Couple Mineralize Eye Shadow duo, and to really open up the eyes I applied three (!) coats of MAC Mascara X to my lashes.
I went with MAC Select Sheer Loose NC 30 all over the the face and MAC Dainty Mineralize Blush on my cheeks. Because I was in the mood for some pink and gold, I used MAC Nymphette Lipglass on my kisser.
At the last minute, I grabbed the Dark/Natural Mineralize Skinfinish powder and applied the light shimmer shade to the tops of my cheeks and the dark shade down my nose, across the forehead and on my chin.
If you haven’t had the chance to play with products from these Mineralize collections yet, I hope you do soon! I think the shadows, blushes and powders are more beginner friendly than usual. They deliver shimmery, soft-focus looks *great* for people working on their blending skills.
