'Royal Opal' Look

'Royal Opal' Look'

I love Make Up For Ever and this look in I used quite a few of their products. They can do no wrong in my eyes...except for the new Aquarelle stuff (but I may be using them incorrectly so who am I to judge).


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

For the inner lid I applied MAC Pink Opal Pigment (shimmery white with pink douchrome).
On the middle of the lid I applied MUFE #118 Eyeshadow (matte vibrant light blue).
For the outer lid I used MUFE #92 Eyeshadow (matte vibrant purple).
On the crease and brow bone area I applied MUFE #9 Eyeshadow (matte vibrant lavender).
For my highlight I used MAC Brule Eyeshadow (satin creamy beige).
For my lower lashline I used MUFE #168 Eyeshadow (iridescent lagoon green).

My brows are filled in with MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Stud and NARS Coconut Grove Eyeshadow (matte blackened brown).

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.


For my lips I used MUFE #15 Rouge Artist Intense Lipstick (shimmery purple) topped with MAC Lavender Wind Lipglass (light lavender).


I prepped my skin with MAC Oil Control Lotion. I used MUFE Mat Velvet + Foundation in #70 for my face set with MAC Blot Powder in Dark. I used MUFE Full Cover Concealer in #12 under my eyes set with Benefit Powderflage.
I used MUFE #8 HD Microfinish Blush (pinky nude) for my cheeks.

Yea I'm wearing purple lips....and? LOL!


  1. The purple lipstick is a different look for you but I really like it. I think it goes well with your complexion. You are using all of my favorite colors in this look. This will be one that I try to re-create.

  13. I think this is my fave look on you so far. Rock on wit ya purple lips, lol!

  14. I have to admit----I LOVE this lipstick. I've been working with a sample, because my Sephora is sold out and hasn't gotten stock yet. I'm amazed more people aren't wearing purple lipstick. It looks pinker on you than it does on me, but that may be because I'm idiotically pale. Such a fun color though, and I like it with those eyes!

  15. i love the eyes.
