'Blackened Sunshine' Look

'Blackened Sunshine' Look

In celebration of the terrible weather I decided to darken my sunshine....LOL! It's raining and pouring and cold and spring is still waiting to be sprung. This could also be considered a bumblebee look but I was thinking of sunshine instead...


I started off with Urban Decay Primer Potion all over my lid up to the brow bone. I also applied MAC Layin' Low Paintpot (matte creamy beige) all over my lid up to my brow bone as my primary base. As a secondary base on my lid I applied Inglot #84 Gel Eyeliner (matte yellow).

On the tear duct, I applied MAC Blanc Type Eyeshadow (matte ivory).
Next on the lid, I applied Sugarpill Buttercupcake Eyeshadow (matte yellow).
On the outer lid and outer V I applied MUFE #26 Pure Pigment (matte black).
For blending and the crease I used Smashbox Nude Eyeshadow (matte nude).
For highlight I used MAC Ricepaper Eyeshadow (shimmery champagne).

My brows are filled in with MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Stud. I am trying to grow thicker brows at the moment.

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 .
On my lower lashline I also smudged a bit of MUFE #2 Metal Powder (yellow gold).
I used MAC Opulash Mascara for my lashes.


MAC Totally Bang! SuperGlass.


I used NARS Sheer Glow Foundation in Tahoe with MUFE Full Cover Concealer in #12 under my eyes. I set with MAC Blot Powder in Dark.
I used MUFE #10 Sculpting Blush for my cheeks.


  1. I really, really like this, girl Sigma had the SS197 brush, I ordered one today and the SS239, I can't wait for it to get to my house, LOL

  2. Brrrr, we have the same weather here. Only advantage is, the rain dampens the pollen.
    Love the look, It's pretty! Thanks for sharing.

  3. I love this look. I tried to recreate it and mine turned out really bad. I need to invest in some good matte eye shadows.

  4. Your perfect, flawless makeup and colour combos amaze me every time! x

  5. Thanks my lovelies!

    Thx Queen!

    Yay Tysh! Let me know how u like the SS197...I don't have any of their other brushes because I already have my MAC ones so...

    Thanks 1xellus1...It's almost summer and it's still so cold! Bring on the heat! But u r right about the pollen tho.

    Thx Vixxan! Mattes can be tricky work with but remember we r our worst critics so it may not be as bad as u think :) But I do agree that good mattes are hard to find...try MUFE or Inglot for great mattes!

    Thx so much Doll! I'm glad u like it!

  6. How are you liking the superglasses? Would you recommend picking one up?
