Look and a Mini Haul

So I did this look last weekend. I've been on this neutral kick lately...maybe because that's what my makeup life has resorted to since i have no free time :-( I mini hauled last week when Mac had their 25% off and i've been itching to try out my new stuff.


They're old for most people but i'm just getting them or rebuying for whatever reason:




Ricepaper e/s--talked myself out of this one too many times. it's mine now!!


Vanilla e/s--i likey. i see this becoming a quick go to highlight


Cranberry e/s--mine crumbled a couple years ago and i'm tired of trying to not get it everywhere ...eventhough i don't use it.


Corduroy e/s--my first ever Mac purchase...back when the eyeshadows had screw off tops! lost this one so i rebought it. i'ts a must have matte brown


Prussian e/s--eeeehhh....i'm nervous about this, as it is a matte2. i don't care for the texture but i need this color in my life! i'm determined to make it work


Fig.1 e/s--matte2 as well. again, i need this to work! its a really pretty color


Twinks e/s--I keep seeing this used in looks and loving it played up or down. I'm excited about this neutral


Spiked pencil--this is more for my kit than for me. Many use it for their brows


Prep and Prime skin--this just continues my never ending search for a primer. and especially one that i like in conjunction with airbrush foundation




Here's a look i did using my stuff from this last hit. Mac is my crack!!!




i'm not liking it really but i post the good with the bad.




FACE:


Mac Studio Mist Foundation--yes i still have one. never use it and this is why...looks terribly ashy in pics. beautiful in person though! i like the buildable coverage on this


Rose Quartz blush




EYES:


primed with TFSI mixed with concealer---DONT EVER DO THAT! I was hoping more was better but it still isn't


Ricepaper--lid


Vanilla e/s--highlight and inner tear duct


Cranberry e/s--creasae


Corduroy e/s--outer V...i should have defined this more.




LIPS:


Hodgepodge liner


Chic l/s--photos more red/pink than in real life


Viva Glam 6 l/g

Blush scares me so! How do you do it?

Loving your look!! Vanilla (if you have the pigment or the es) makes a beautiful facial highlighter...seriously! Try it above blusher areas.
