This post is something I have never done, but thought I would give it a try to see what you all thought. If you remember in March I shared some of the goodies I managed to get my hands on from the Cinderella Mac collection. Well since then I have been using the eyeshadow palette quite a bit and thought I'd show you guys a make up look I do with it.
I love doing my eyebrows, I have quite dark eyebrows so I can't really ignore them. I use two products, both by Benefit, which I swear by. Firstly, I use the Gimme Brow Gel in Medium/Dark to shape my brows and make sure all the hairs stay in place. I then use the Brow Zings set in Medium to define the brows a little more and make sure I have no gaps etc. I love these two products, I use at least one of them every day and both for a night out. For my eyebrows I use the Mac 266 Angled brush with my Brow Zings.
This is where I use my Cinderella Mac palette. Luckily you can actually get the two shadows I use on their own. First I use Phloof (top right) over my whole eye lid, before working Satin Taupe (bottom left) into my crease and outer corner, I also put this colour on my bottom lash line, but only to about the middle of my eye. Next, I add eyelinner, I love the L'Oréal Paris Super Liner Perfect Slim Intense as it is so easy to use. I just put a fine line of this on my lid, right next to my lashes. Finally, lashes. I don't often use fake lashes as I don't have the patience to do them and I'm clumsy and a little lazy, so I do for a mascara which makes my lashes look super long, such as Benefit's They're Real or Maybelline's The Falsies mascara, both of these are really good, recently I have been using the benefit one over the maybelline one, but only as I have two to use up. I use a few brushes on my eyes, first I use the Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush (it comes in this set), followed by the Mac 217 Blending brush for the shadow in my crease. I then use the Mac 219 brush for the shadow on my lower lash line.
I decided to go with a red lip with this look, I went for the L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Exclusive Reds in Blake Lively's colour cause it is a really great red, and who doesn't want to look like Blake Lively!
This look is really simple I am not very good at make up, so it would have to be, but I think it is also really pretty.
