I DID IT! Sephora Sorceress that no one can recreate using Sephora products- I DID IT

Ever since the Sephora catalog came out for the Holiday season of 2007, I have been captivated by the eye look. Everyone I talked to was thrilled with it, and it has bugged me since it came out.

HOWEVER- there is not a product in Sephora that would make it look like the photo.

I was even told repeatedly at Sephora that it was possible using certain products, but when I pushed the matter, they could not even come close- I made them look at the products to prove a point.

SO, as the eternal artist who LOVES to meet a challenge, I set out to completely duplicate the look from the catalog EXACTLY- not close- but EXACTLY. Of course, I had to use almost all MAC to do it.

Here is what I came up with. I will start with the original photo so you all know what I am talking about

Now, I did not like the lips or the hair, so I decided to put my own spin on it, even though I could have totally duplicated the original look as it was.

I also worked hard on this, and when I went to snap photos, it got really really dark and started to blizzard. Makeup artist to the end, I stood out in the blizzard to get a few of these just for you all to see.

The photos are a bit dark, but at least you can see enough to make it worth looking at them anyway. I only wish after all of this work, I could have had better photos, but at least I got some good ones.

Some are with flash, but most are without.

I really like how it turned out- I may have to wear it for my bday dinner this weekend instead of gold.

WOW!!! I JUST looked at this catalog (my hubby put it aside and I just found it)...and I was looking at that exact look wondering "What products at Sephora would make this look...if any"....They don't say in the catalog what products they used (they do for the very first look, but that's it). I think ya did a GREAT job of nailing it! I would still be looking for things to make the 'fit'!

bang on! fantastic job... it makes me crazy when promotional pictures can't be recreated with the products it is supposed to be pushing. you did a FABULOUS job! well done! It's funny cause I've wanted to create that look too, and i thought my best bets were entremauve/grape piggies and blue pigment, now i know it'll work if i try it, so thank you!
