'Moment of Clarity' Look
One of my all time favorite eyeshadows from MAC is Clarity and it has my fave finish, the glorious creamy Matte2. It's such a pity MAC had discontinued so many of the Matte2 eyeshadows. I found my back-up at Nordstrom so I know there are still a few floating around in makeup-land. If you can get your hands on Clarity or Velvet Moss don't hesitate!
And if you haven't picked up Naked Dark Pigment...this is a definite must try too. I realized that it had a beautiful pink/purple pearl in the finish beautiful.
I started off with NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base all over my lid up to the brow bone. I also applied MAC Layin Low Paintpot (matte creamy beige) all over my lid and up to my brow bone as my primary base.
On the inner tear-duct area I applied MAC Vanilla Eyeshadow (matte ivory).
On the inner lid I applied MAC Naked Dark Pigment (shimmery golden nude w/ pink pearl).
For the middle of the lid I applied MAC Clarity Eyeshadow (matte vibrant blue).
On the outer lid and crease I applied MAC Black Black Pigment (matte black).
I used Smashbox Nude Eyeshadow (matte nude) for blending.
For highlight I used Bare Escentuals Clear Radiance All Over Face Color (shimmery light pink).
My brows are filled in with MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Stud.
I lined my upper lashline with Wet 'n' Wild Gel Eyeliner in Black.
I lined my lower waterline with L'Oreal HIP Cream Eyeliner in Black.
On the lower lashline I used MAC Ricepaper Eyeshadow (shimmery champagne), next to MAC Clarity Eyeshadow (matte vibrant blue) and NARS China Blue Eyeshadow (matte dark blue) on the outer lashline.
I used MAC Haute & Naughty Lash Mascara for my lashes and added Beautee Senses #136 false lashes for effect.
For my lips I used e Clé de Peau Beauté Extra Silky Lipstick #109.
I prepped my skin with MAC Prep and Prime Skin. 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 MAC Instant Chic Blush for my cheeks.
