mac false eyelashes

I created this Cranberry coloured eye look today and I paired it with an Aubergine dark lip.

To get the look;

I used ‘Soft Ochre’ paint pot, by MAC, over the eyelid. This neutralises the lid & also prevents the shadow from shifting.

To give a smooth and tack-free surface to apply the coloured eyeshadow to, I swept Vanilla eyeshadow from MAC over the entire lid up to the brow bone.

Though the socket line I added a light transition colour; I mixed a matte Red eyeshadow with a matte Camel coloured eyeshadow, and on a blending brush I softly shaded through the crease of the eye. The purpose of this was so that I could place a darker colour through the socket line afterwards and it would make light work of the blending.

On the very centre of the mobile eyelid I patted on a soft satin finish eyeshadow from Anastasia Beverly Hills. This colour is the lightest shade from an eyeshadow duo they created back in 2012. This duo was called ‘My Bedford’

Next, I placed Cranberry eyeshadow from MAC, on the inner & outer 3rd of the eyelid. So, this emphasised the lightest shade I placed on the centre of the lid, making it appear larger just in the centre.

On the outer ‘V’ of the eye I placed the darker eyeshadow from the ‘My Bedford’ duo palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills, which is a deep purple colour. This deepened the outer edge of the crease, and created more dimension. I used a fluffy blending brush to soften the placement of the purple eyeshadow, so the colours blended seamlessly.

Underneath the lower lashes I mimicked the top lid, using the same colours but in a smaller amount so it just smoked the lower lash-line.

After the eyeshadow was complete, I used a cream liner by Kryolan in the colour Aubergine. I painted this across the waterline & I also tightlined the eyelid. This means to paint underneath the top lashes, to rid any pink fleshy tones, which makes the eye look even more smokey.

And lastly, I applied a top set of eyelashes; M102 by Eldora Eyelashes And a bottom set; ‘Precious’ by House Of Lashes

I found a new way to do my eyebrows. Pretty self explanatory (;
