Happy St. Patty's Day

I wore this look in for St. Patrick's Day today. I took these pictures after a long day, so excuse me if the makeup doesn't look fresh. Please note colors or brushes are MAC unless listed otherwise.

Face: Shu Uemura face architect smoothing fluid foundation 524. MAC studio careblend pressed powder medium deep. MAC studio finish concealer nw40. MAC studio sculpt concealer nw35. MAC select sheer loose powder nc40.

Eyes: I applied MAC bamboom paint all over the lid using my ring finger. I then applied Inglot D.S. 464(matte orange toned brown) in the crease using the Hakuhodo S142 brush. I then applied Inglot AMC 54(chocolate brown) beneath 464 using the Hakuhodo S142 brush. I then applied Inglot AMC 58(matte grass green) beneath 54 using the Hakuhodo S142 brush. I applied MAC pharoah paint pot on the mobile lid using the 242 brush. I applied bitter over pharoah paint pot using the Hakuhodo Kokutan SG brush. I applied Inglot AMC 57(deep forest green) to the outer "v" and up into the crease using the 266 brush. I then applied spring it up(d/c) to the brow bone using the Hakuhodo Kokutan SG brush. I also applied spring it up to the tear ducts using the 219 brush.

I lined the upper lash line with blacktrack fluidline using the 266 brush. I lined the lower lash line with Urban Decay zero pencil. I smoked out the lower lash line with humid eyeshadow using the 219 brush. I applied ICE 014bl lashes(similar to MAC #3).

Cheeks: I applied Black Radiance chocolate truffle as a contour using the 169 brush(d/c). I then applied MAC hipness blush using the Hakuhodo K020 brush. I applied MAC ripe peach blush ombre over hipness using the K020 brush. I applied Cargo topeka as a highlight using the K020 brush.

Lips: MAC exxx-hibitionist kissable lipcolor.

  2. Thanks Erin, Maria, and Rita! I appreciate your compliments! :)

  3. Love it as usual! Your color definition is bananas!

  4. How do you get the colors to pop like you do. I can never get the true intensity of the colors like you have.. Share your secret!!

  5. Hi Keetuh! I pat my colors on with flat shader brushes(e.g. MAC 239, Shu Uemura 10, Hakuhodo Kokutan sg, etc.). Sometimes I layer the color so that I have the first layer, then I apply a second, or maybe even a third using the same color. I type everything I use in the description. :)
