'French Coif' Look

'French Coif' Look

So I started off the day in good spirits all excited to play with my new Sugarpill Loose Eyeshadows and bam! They are not so fun! So I removed all my makeup and started over and to no avail....they still suck. So I start over again using my reliable MAC Pigments instead for a much better result. Then I burnt my top while ironing so again I started over and of course got to work late...hmph! Hope you are having a better day than I am....


I started off with NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base all over my lid up to the brow bone. I applied MAC Painterly Paintpot (matte light beige) all over my lid and on my brow bone as my primary base.

For the inner lid I applied MAC Blanc Type Eyeshadow (matte ivory).

On the middle of the lid I applied MAC Cool Pink Pigment (matte light blue pink).
For the outer lid and crease I used MAC French Violet Pigment (matte purple).
On the brow bone and for blending I applied 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 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.
I used MAC Haute & Naughty Lash Mascara for my lashes with MAC #7 false eyelashes for effect.


For my lips I used MAC Blooming Lovely Lipstick (light lavender pink) topped with MAC English Accents Lipglass (medium pink).


I prepped my skin with MAC Oil Control Lotion. I used MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation in NC45 for my face. I used MUFE Full Cover Concealer in #12 under my eyes set with Benefit Powderflage. I set my foundation with MAC Blot Powder in Dark.
I used NARS Amour Blush (matte peachy pink) for my cheeks and MUFE #2 Sculpting Kit for contour and highlight.

Curse bad days!!!


  1. Sorry your day started off so crazy. If it makes you feel better; your makeup is flawless like always.

  2. Try having kids to deal with in the morning and putting on your makeup, LOL, I love this look I wish they still had these pigments, STRUPS!!!!

  3. Sorry to hear that your morning was so rough. I often have mornings like that. But hurray for making it to work and for the beautiful look you've done! I would have gone back to bed... I especially love the French Violet pigment.

  4. Ooooohhh, this look is really pretty. I find that purples don't really help me at all but I LOVE this look on you.

  5. your makeup is AMAZING :)

    xoxo Christine

  6. u look absolutely beautiful hun,I love it

  7. Sorry you had a rough start Tina. I hate when that happens. You surely don't look like it though. Another awesome look!

  8. The looks still came together very polished, I really love pastel shades on you. Your skintone makes them more vibrant. Too bad about the Sugarpill new pigments. I really liked the first set she put out. What don't you like about them?

  9. thanks for sharing even with a start like that you still pulled off a beautiful look as always : )

  10. Heel mooi. De kleuren matchen zo goed. Liefs, xxxxx

  11. Thanks so much my lovelies for your kids words. it was just a bad start to my day but thankfully it ended well :)

    The Sugarpill eyeshadows really made me sad because they are so pretty in the jar but such a pain to work with. The original ones were such a dream but what to do.

    Thankfully my MAC pigments came to the rescue! Via MAC! :)

  12. Love this look on you it is so pretty. Since MAC discontinued these colors, do you recommend any substitutes being that these colors are very hard to find. I have been looking for them on several sites. Thank you for your blog and posts they always inspire me to do better make up. =)

  13. Beautiful makeup.. and I love the curse bad days pic lol
