'Moonlight Drama' Look

'Moonlight Drama' Look

So I have been trying out some new products and I am in love with some of them! I have to share with you guys very very soon (but not before I truly put them to the test). I actually liked how this smoky look turned out and I think I'm finally getting the hang of the 'smoke'. LOL. And I'm still loving these new pigments from MAC A Tartan Tale Collection.


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) on my lid and brow bone area as my primary base. Sonia Kashuk Dome Blending Brush. I used MAC Blackground Paintpot (shimmery smoky black) all over my lid as a secondary base. MAC 242 Shader Brush.

On the inner lid I applied MAC Naked Dark Pigment (medium beige with pearl). Sonia Kashuk Medium Eyeshadow Brush
Next on the rest of the I applied MAC Moonlight Pigment (blackened teal w/ teal pearl). MAC 242 Shader Brush
On the crease I used Illamasqua Drama Eyeshadow (matte deep slate). MAC Large 252 Shader BrushOn the browbone area and for blending I used Smashbox Nude Eyeshadow (matte nude). MAC Large 252 Shader Brush
For highlight I used MAC Ricepaper Eyeshadow (shimmery champagne). MAC Large 252 Shader Brush
For my lower lashline I used the Bourjois Duochrome Eyeliner Pencil in 61 Vert dore (shimmery lime green).

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 Too Faced Lash Injection Mascara for my lashes and added Beautee Senses Erotica False Eyelashes for effect.

For my lips I used MAC Brace New Bronze Lipstick (matte peachy nude) topped with MAC Chai Lipglass (creamy nude).


I prepped my skin with MAC Oil Control Lotion and Tarte ReCreate™ Silicone-Free Primer. I used MAC Pro Longwear Foundation in NC45 - Sigma Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki Brush - for my face and set my t-zone with MAC Blot Powder in Dark. I used MUFE #14 Full Cover Concealer under my eyes set with Benefit Powderflage - Beauty Blender Sponge.
I used MAC Gingerly Blush (capri bronze) for my cheeks - MAC 129 Powder/Blush Brush topped with Tarte Park Avenue Princess Bronzer (highly pearled light yellow gold).


  1. I see you're doing lotsa smoldering looks lately, keep it up ;) is that the Orly blue polish (forgot the name, from fall) on ur nails? It looks like it...

    Have a great Monday :)

  2. Have you ever tried the jane iredale mineral bases? I have noticed no one on any of the forms or blogs I frequant uses them. They come in a variety of global(darker) shades and have an spf 20. I figured if anyone has tried them it would be you!

    I dont blog myself but I read yours daily, I first started watching your looks from makeup geek. I love all your work esepcially the fact that you work with a lot of matte colours!

  3. Thanks Marinad!

    I'm following u Saadeh1 LOL. I don't know I just have the smoky vibes lately. Weird! How did u know?? U beauty lover u! It's Orly La Playa. Enjoy ur Monday my dear!

    Thanks so much Anonymous. Sorry I haven't tried them. Where r the bases sold? I never heard of them. I don't seem to get around to the lesser known brands because they r not as easy to get a hold of.

  4. Tina this came out really nice, I love those pigments, I still didn't get them as yet, hopefully they still have more.
