Violet and Charcoal


Well-known member
I haven't been on specktra in so long. But I missed the make up world, so I'm trying to bring myself back! So I thought I'd post a quick look.

So I actually copied this look from a magazine clipping that I had saved because I like it. When I first cut the picture out I thought it was just a silvery smoky eye, but when I looked closer I realized it had a violet colour blended on the inner corners. Either way I love the way it looked. Unfortunately I have a crappy digital camera and I'm still learning how to use it so my pictures aren't the best quality. The colours are less vibrant and it makes my skin look shiny because of the flash. But the no flash pictures looked worse. It's simple and easy, but the more I learn about makeup, the more I realize the simple things can look amazing.

What I Used:
Korres Wild Rose Foundation W4 mixed with MAC lustredrops in Sunrush
MAC Moisture Cover Concealer under the eyes and for minor blemishes
MAC Mineralized Blush in Gentle dusted lightly over the cheek bones
MAC Mineralized Skin Finish in Lightscapade as a highlight all over
MAC Mineralized Skin Finish over the entire face

MAC Bare Study paint pot from lid to brow
MAC Sharkskin shadestick over outer lid
MAC Violet pigment on the inner lid
MAC Silver Ring eyeshadow on the outer lid, crease, and under the eye
MAC Smolder Eye Kohl lined around the entire eye and waterline
MAC Studio Fix Mascara in Black Fix
MAC Concrete eye shadow filling in brows

MAC Naked Rose cremestick liner
MAC Big Bow lipstick
