Some Neutrals and Purples

I decided to use some of my MAC products that I haven't used in months. In this first look, I used my classic MAC neutral shadows in Tempting on outer lid, Mulch on the crease, and the limited edition Summer Neutral on the lid (love this color). I used Graphic Brown to line and Femme-Fi to highlight. I used Blusche full-coverage mineral foundation for oily and combination skin in a 50-50 mix of Brazilian and Creme Brulee. I love the finish of this foundation, and I also like the amazing coverage. For the cheeks, I used my CARGO blush in Mendocino (it's about time I used my CARGO blushes!) with MAC Lightflush MSF on top. I used MAC lipliner in Whirl, Composure mattene lipstick and C-thru lipglass.


I need a new mascara primer tube. My lashes look so sparse here!



Here's a purple look using purple mineral shadows I've been testing. I used my DreamWorld mineral foundation in a new mix - Theia and Amenti in an almost 50-50 ratio. I kinda like the combination, perhaps better than my Theia-Tethys mix since summer is upon us. I used the MAC Pleasureflush MSF dupe called Terra del Sol #7 (a German brand) over a deep pink mineral blush, and used my beloved purple lipstick from MAC - Orchidazzle (I love this so much that I bought a back-up!). The deep purple hue isn't that noticeable because I toned it down with MAC White Magic lipglass - but it is such a gorgeous color.







Here is Orchidazzle lipstick in all its glory used in a previous look:

I just recently found Orchidazzle at a CCO I wore it about a month, and then went back to purchase a backup. I figure by the time I go through them Mac, will repromote it, again.
