I was asked by a couple of peeps for a tut on this look so here it is. As usual the pics are terrible but I think it does the job ok.

I have already applied my base (no way was I posting a bare face, you would run screaming from the thread) MAC Hyperreal applied all over with MAC 190 (not pictured), MAC Medium MSF lightly applied all over, MAC Lightscapade MSF brush over forehead, nose, chin and on apples of cheeks. MAC Naked You MSF applied to apples of cheeks.

3. Apply NYX Hard Core e/s to lid with MAC 202
