MAC Style Black: A Toned Down Version!

I can't wait for the MAC Style Black collection to come out! I like the look they have in this ad (below) so I will attempt to do a toned-down version of it using what I have in my makeup stash! Wow! I don't think they even use eyeshadows- the colour is so dark and got a sheen to it. Maybe it's just liner all around the eyes? I dunno but it looks very vampy! I have to try the black nail varnish too:)

Firstly, I am not used to putting on sooo much eye makeup! It's scary! In the photos it might not look like much but I practically shovelled my eye makeup on! Beware- there is a lot of fallout when you don this type of look so I suggest doing your foundation last!

I don't know why- but this makeup brings out the weird in you! ahhaha Here are some scary funny faces- and no, I am not drunk! :P

here is a what I used for the eyes:
  • MAC E/Shadow: Carbon- lots of it!
  • MAC E/Shadow: Nehru & Cloudburst to add a bit of shading and shimmer
  • MAC E/Shadow Vapour to highlight brow bone
  • Bobbi Brown Gel Liner Black Ink
  • MUFE Smoky Lash Mascara

I put on foundation afterthe eye makeup- I used Korres Wild Rose Foundation. Finished it off with Benefit Dandelion. Add my fave lipgloss from KIT cosmetics- Dreamcatcher.
Warning: Another scary photo below...this is what I looked like when I used my Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil to take off all that black makeup! I had to use at least 4 pumps to really get my face clean! Looks ewww!

I love black eyeshadow! I have one from Chanel but I'm not very good at it... you should do a pictorial of this look so we can all learn step-by-step!

Jess said...

I agree to Caherine! You pull off the dark eye makeup beautifully! Very nice toned down version!

Yes true, it mostly doesn't look that heavy in the photos, but in real, haha... >_<
