FOTD – Late Evening Blush (Tutorial to Come)

Tuesday night, after being very proud of myself for sticking to an eye product no-buy, I was fatally tempted by MAC’s limited edition Coral Crepe paint pot. It arrived today, so I had to do a look with it right away. Here’s the result: evening in paradise, a sunset-ish look featuring Coral Crepe and Motif, Atlantic Blue, and Shadowy Lady eyeshadows.

Electro Eye – Color Trial

I picked up MAC Electro Sky (McQueen LE collection, 2007) paint pot at the Cosmetics Company Store last weekend. It’s a medium-tone periwinkle cream color: not the type of shade I usually seek out. But it was so lovely — and I am so taken with the non-frost paint pots’ wonderful performance as bases — that I had to snatch it up.

I finally got around to trying it out last night. I used a sheer wash of blue-green duotone powder eyeshadow over the paint pot, which created a fantastic iridescence that — alas! — doesn’t really show up on camera. Even so, I’m pleased with the result; I may wear this look for some fun occasion in the future.
