Hey guys! Today when I was doing my makeup I decidedto take step by step photos to post if anybody was curious as to how I do it! Here is the makeup below, so if you want to see how I did it, keep reading!

Sugarpill Makeup

The first step I do if I’m doing a makeup look with a lot of bright colors is to apply a white base. I like to use the Nyx Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil in Milk. Please excuse my eyebrows!

Sugarpill.1

Prime eyelid with white base (Nyx Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil in Milk)

After putting on the cream eyeshadow base, I set it with a white shadow to make sure all of the colors blend nicely when I put them on. I used Tako from Sugarpill for this step.

Sugarpill Heart Breaker Palette (Acidberry- green, Velocity- blue, 2am- purple, Mochi- mint)

Once the eyelid was primed and set I took Mochi eyeshadow from the Sugarpill Heart Breaker Palette and blended it through my crease using a fluffy blender brush from Morphe.

Next, I put Acidberry on the inner half of my eyelid using a flat shader brush.

Then I decided I wanted more Mochi and placed it on the rest of the lid that did not have Acidberry on it. To blend the two colors without losing color payoff, I take one of the colors and pack it on where the blue and the green meet using the same shader brush I have been using and then repeat with the opposite color until it looks blended to where I like it.

More Mochi on the lid

Next I wanted to darken up the crease a bit, so I added Velocity with a slightly tapered blending brush, I like the E45 from Sigma Beauty. I concentrated this color mostly in the outer V area of the eye and blended it in towards the inner crease.

At this point, the crease was not as blended as I liked, so I took more Mochi on a fluffy brush and went right around the edge of Velocity in small circular motions.

To deepen up the outer V a little bit more I added some black shadow to the very outer corner and blended it out with the same tapered blending brush that I applied Velocity with.

I filled in my eyebrows with Made for Mocha eyeshadow from Maybelline and sharpened the shape of my eyeshadow using MAC Studio Finish SPF 35 Concealer. I wear the shade NC10. To highlight under my brow and my inner corner, I went back in with Tako eyeshadow, the white shadow used to set the primer.

I follow the sharp edge that I create with my eyeshadow to make a wing with my eyeliner. I use MAC Creme Liner in Black.

Sugarpill.9

On the lower waterline and lash line, I used Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Chaos and blended it out with Velocity eyeshadow.

Sugarpill.10

Last I applied a couple of coats of Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara to finish the eyes.

For the face, I used Benefit Hula Light bronzer on all of the high points of my face, followed by Anastasia Beverly Hills Fawn mixed with a bit of Java on a Nyx Pro Fan Brush to contour my cheekbones.

For blush, I used Dandelion blush from Benefit and highlighted with Blinded By The Light by Too Faced. On the lips I used the Nyx Lingerie liquid lipstick in Push-Up.

Hello all!

I’ve been searching through the Goodbyes tab on the MAC website and I’ve found a few things I really love!

They’ve got a few of the Soft Serve Shadows left on the website, and they’re on sale for $13.20 instead of $22. I had wanted to try them when they first came out, but I talked myself out of spending the money and was thrilled to see that they were more affordable now.

These shadows have a very unique texture that is a cross between a cream and a powder. The texture puts me in mind of the bouncy blushes from Maybelline with a bit more of a powdery feel. They look beautiful packed on for more pigment or sheered out and are perfect to throw on quick for a light summer makeup look.

I haven’t noticed any creasing when I wear these shadows, but I do put them over a base just to make sure. There are still a few colors online at maccosmetics.com that I would definitely recommend trying out if you love super shimmery pastels for summer!

The other item that I picked up from the Goodbyes tab on MAC is the Pearlmatte Face Powder.

Pearlmatte Face Powder

I bought the powder expecting it to be a blush on my pale complexion, but I was surprised that it gave me a really beautiful and natural highlighted glow.

I would like to note that the pink on the bowling pins wipes off after the first swatch and is simply for decoration.

The Pearlmatte Face Powder is on sale for $16.20 instead of $27 at maccosmetics.com

I would definitely recommend going and checking out both of these products before they are all gone!

Hello!

MAC has been one of my favorite brands since I first became interested in makeup. I was super excited for the Fruity Juicy collection as I absolutely love the summery feel of it. I picked up 2 items from the collection; the Fruit A La La eyeshadow palette and one of the lipsticks, Calm Heat.

 

The lipstick is supposed to be matte, although to me it does have more of a satin finish, which I don’t mind at all. I love MAC lipsticks because all of the ones that I have tried have a very moisturizing feel to them which makes them a lot more comfortable. Calm Heat is no exception.

Here is a closeup swatch of the lipstick on my lips.

This shade is a nice pinky nude shade. Although MAC does have several pinky nude shades, it is always fun to have the special packaging from the collections.

This lipstick retails for $17 at maccosmetics.com

The other product that I got from the Fruity Juicy collection is an eyeshadow palette. There were 3 eyeshadow palettes released in the collection; a blue/green palette (Love in the Glades), a more yellow/orange palette (Oh My Banana), and a pink/orange palette (Fruit A La La). Although I would have loved to buy all three, I only ended up with one.

Retail Price: $32 maccosmetics.com

All of the shades are extremely pigmented and beautiful but the shade that stands out the most to me is !Arriba! the coppery shimmery shade. I don’t have any other colors quite like this one in my collection and I absolutely love it!

Overall I was very happy with my purchases from the collection. I think that there are definitely good dupes for the lipstick, but the eyeshadow palette was unique and very nice and blendable.

I used toilet paper and adhesive to make the skin look like it’s tearing off, Kryolan aqua color for the red with fake blood layered over top and my regular light foundation with grey and black eyeshadows for shading. ImageImageImage
