'Unknown Pleasures' Look

'Unknown Pleasures' Look

Again, just another Au Naturel look with bold lips. I am really having fun with these MAC Mattenes for sure! Dark lips are just meant to be matte or semi-matte don't you think? I think they look much better matte....but then again I love all things matte :)

I started off with Urban Decay Primer Potion all over my lid up to the brow bone. I applied MAC Layin' Low Paintpot (creamy beige) all over my lid and into the crease as my primary base - Sonia Kaskuk Large Crease Brush. 

On the browbone area and crease I used Cappucino Eyeshadow from the Sleek MakeUP Au Naturel Palette (matte camel). NARS 01 Eye Shader Brush
Then on the lid I applied Nougat Eyeshadow from the Sleek MakeUP Au Naturel Palette (matte ivory). MAC 239 Eye Shader Brush
On the outer lid and crease I applied Nubuck Eyeshadow from the Sleek MakeUP Au Naturel Palette (matte light grey). MAC 217 Blending Brush
To deepen the outer V I used Bark Eyeshadow from the Sleek MakeUP Au Naturel Palette (matte deep grey brown). MAC 217 Blending Brush
For highlight I used Nougat Eyeshadow from the Sleek MakeUP Au Naturel Palette (matte ivory). MAC 252 Large Shader Brush

My brows are filled in with MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Stud and NARS Coconut Grove Eyeshadow (matte blackened brown). Cozzette Eyebrow/Mini Shader D230 Brush/Paula Dorf Eye Definer Flat Top Brush

I lined my upper lashline with Wet 'n' Wild Crème Eyeliner in BlackMAC 263 Small Angle Brush
I lined my lower waterline with L'Oreal HIP Cream Eyeliner in Black. MAC 212 Flat Definer Brush
I used L'Oreal Carbon Black Voluminous Mascara for my lashes and added Ardell #138 Eyelashes for effect. Duo Eyelash Adhesive

For my lips I used MAC Unknown Pleasures Mattene Lipstick (matte deep red).

I primed my skin with MAC Oil Control Lotion all over my face and Phillips Milk of Magnesia in my t-zone area. I used NARS Sheer Glow Foundation in Tahoe - Sigma Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki Brush - for my face and set my t-zone with MAC Studio Careblend/Pressed Powder in Dark - face puff.

I used MUFE #12 Full Cover Concealer - Cozzette P350 Cylinder Concealer Brush - under my eyes set with MAC Studio Careblend/Pressed Powder in Medium Deep - face puff

I used Smashbox Bronze Lights Bronzer in Sunkissed Matte (matte warm tan) for my cheeks - Cozzette Contour Stylist S135 Brush.


  1. I really love these neutral lids with bold lips looks. I wish I could pull them off but my lips are way to big to do these.

  2. I LOVE LOVE LOVE your lip color! You make me want to go out and get some of those mac lipsticks! Very pretty!

  3. gorgeous lippie! i need some of those in my arsenal :D

  4. love the look, you should try red lips & neutral eyes more often, looks gorgeous

  5. Thanks Chanel girl. And u know ur lips are not big at all! If you do matte instead of gloss it doesn't emphasize the size of ur lips tho and Mattenes r the best bet!

    Thanks Santana. I think the Mattenes are sold out by now :( I hope they get repromoted or made permanent.

    Get on it socialite! But any bold lip will do :)

    Thanks indian. I would but then I wouldn't have anything to share on the blog :)
