'Violet Mustard' Look

'Violet Mustard' Look

So I'm trying to get back into the swing of makeup and I'm not quite sure how I feel about this look just yet. I love the mustard pigment from MUFE and I'm happy I found a suitable dupe for the long-gone and long-sought after Mustard Pigment from MAC but the combo leaves me with a not so fond feeling. Anywho onwards...


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 Vanilla Eyeshadow (matte ivory).
On the middle of the lid I applied MUFE #22 Pure Pigment (matte mustard yellow).
For the outer lid and crease I used MUFE #14 Pure Pigment (matte red based violet).
To deepen the outer V I used MAC Indian Ink Eyeshadow (matte dark purple).
I used Smashbox Nude Eyeshadow (matte nude) for blending in the crease.
For highlight I used MAC Ricepaper Eyeshadow (shimmery champagne).
I used MAC Blue Cyan Chromagraphic Pencil (matte cyan blue) for my lower lashline.

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 Beautee Senses Adventurous false eyelashes for effect.


For my lips I used Lancome Color Design lipstick in B-List topped with Lancome Lipgloss in #217.


I prepped my skin with MAC Oil Control Lotion. I used NARS Sheer Glow Foundation in Tahoe 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 MAC Gingerly Blush (matte orangey nude) for my cheeks and MUFE #2 Sculpting Kit for contour and MAC Petticoat MSF for highlight.

I'm quite sure that there was something evil in my eye or maybe I was winking? Ehem! IDK!


  1. pretty! thank goodness youre back so i have some inspiration. im a newbie and my makuep creativity is pretty limited :-(

  2. OMG!!! I can't take it. Three in one day. That is a very cute look. I love the cyan blue on the lower lash line.

    Question: do you have someone else take your pictures or do you place the camera on a desk or tripod?

  9. I love this color combo. So glad you are back giving me inspiration!

  10. I think this is lovely. It's amazing how there are colors I swear I'd never wear, and then I see them in one of your looks and convince myself I must have them. Really, how much use would a mustard colored pigment get from me? Almost none, but I still want it because you make it look so good! LOL

    So glad you're back ... I've missed my daily dose of fancy!

  14. Besides Loving the Make-up, I have a questions about your hair: What products do you use? How do you keep it shiny?, Do you blowdry/style it yourself?. Thanks.
