'Sour Grapes' Look

'Sour Grapes' Look

SO I realized that I am not a fan of monochromatic looks - one color scheme looks (think light pink to medium pink to dark pink)! I prefer to mix and match my colors and do combos rather than stick to one color palette.

Anybody know the Fable - The Fox and the Grapes...it's has a great lesson...check it out!



I started off with Urban Decay Primer Potion all over my lid up to the brow bone. I also applied MAC Painterly Paintpot (matte creamy beige) all over my lid up to my brow bone as my primary base.
On the tear duct, I applied MAC Blanc Type Eyeshadow (matte ivory). 
Next on the inner lid, I applied MAC True Chartreuse Pigment (matte lemon/chartreuse green).
Then on the middle of the lid, I applied MAC Chartreuse Pigment (shimmery lemon/chartreuse green).
On the outer lid and crease I applied MAC French Violet Pigment (matte medium purple).
For the outer V I used MAC Rich Purple Pigment (matte dark purple).
For highlight I used MAC Blanc Type Eyeshadow (matte ivory). 
My brows are filled in with MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Spiked.

I lined my upper lashline with Wet 'n' Wild Creme Eyeliner in Black. 
I lined my lower waterline with Loreal HIP Creme Eyeliner in Black and Inglot #87 (teal) Gel Eyeliner.
On my lower lashline I also smudged a bit of MAC Marine Ultra Pigment (matte blue).
I used MAC Opulash Mascara for my lashes.


MAC Siss Lipstick and MAC Sock Hop Lipglass.


I used NARS Sheer Glow Foundation in Tahoe with MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NW35 under my eyes. I set with MAC Blot Powder in Dark.
I used MAC Vintage Grape Blush Ombre for my cheeks.

  9. Thank u so much my lovelies!

    Funny u guys should mentioned my hair. I just broke down and got the Instyler and I must say it makes my hair shiny and full without using products. Otherwise all I use are Loreal EverPure Shampoos and Conditioners. Only wash my hair every 3 days and let it air dry before styling it in any way.

  10. i love your makeup looks, so pretty, you should do tutorials:)

  11. I'm working on the whole tutorial thing now. Wish me luck plz!

  12. I love this look. In fact, you have the most amazing colour combinations of all the makeup blogs I frequent! Thank you for all the inspiration! I can't wait until Xmas comes and I get my very own 'makeup corner' so I can have the perfect spot to play with all my colours!
