'Fiery Coral' Look

'Fiery Coral' Look

I went a bit overboard with the corals for this look but it turned out okay. It's not the best but it's not too bad either. : )

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. Sonia Kashuk Dome Blending Brush

On the inner lid I applied MAC Nylon Eyeshadow (shimmery pale ice gold). MAC 242 Shader Brush
Next on the middle of the I applied MAC Dusty Coral Pigment (matte coral). MAC 242 Shader Brush
On the browbone area and crease I used Illamasqua Vapour Eyeshadow (matte tangerine). MAC 252 Large Shader Brush
On the outer lid and outer V I used Urban Decay Black Dog Eyeshadow (matte black). Sonia Kashuk Dome Blending Brush
For highlight I used Bare Escentuals Multi-task Eye (matte light ivory). MAC 252 Large Shader Brush
For my lower lashline I used the MAC Black Swan Pearlglide Intense Eyeliner Pencil (shimmery black w/ silver pearl) - OUTER and Urban Decay Lucky 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil (shimmery copper) - INNER.

My brows are filled in with MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Stud and NARS Coconut Grove Eyeshadow (matte blackened brown). Paula Dorf Eye Definer Flat Top Brush

I lined my upper lashline with Wet 'n' Wild Gel Eyeliner in Black. MAC 266 Small Angle Brush
I lined my lower waterline with L'Oreal HIP Cream Eyeliner in Black. Stila #28 Smudge Pot Brush
I used MAC Haute & Naughty Lash Mascara in Black for my lashes and added Beautee Senses Erotica False Eyelashes for effect.


For my lips I used Lancome B-List Color Design Lipstick (matte neutral pinky-rose).


I prepped my skin with MAC Oil Control Lotion. I used NARS Sheer Glow Foundation in Tahoe - Sigma Round Top Synthetic Kabuki Brush - for my face set my t-zone with MAC Blot Powder in Dark. I used MUFE #12 Full Cover Concealer under my eyes set with Benefit Powderflage - Beauty Blender Sponge.
I used MAC Instant Chic Blush (matte light coral) for my cheeks - MAC 129 Powder/Blush Brush and Stereo Rose Mineralize Skinfinish (shimmery coral) for highlight.

  13. Hey Jeanette. Thx for popping in my dear :)
    Hahahahaa I agree! "Who gon' check me, Boo?" Seriously I don't see an issue with matching if it looks good and not too much like a costume.

    Thx laguyg.

    Thanks Saadeh my luv. U r so sweet! :)

    Thx Andrea girl.

    Thanks lissette. Dusty Coral is a discontinued MAC Pro pigment. I think the only way to get it is from a CCO or a pigment sample site. Sorry hon.

    Thanks Marinad87 doll.

    Thanks so much Jaime!

  14. I'm so hurt! Dusty Coral is discontinued and it's such a beautiful color.
