My Beauty, My Style

Tag: MAC Peachstock

Look: Smokey Purple

I actually broke out some of my Aromaleigh shadows today for a silvery purple look. I wanted to use Xylia because I hadn’t cracked into my Lost in Faerie collection shadows since I received them. The look (click to enlarge):

What I used:

Face:

  • Shu Uemura Nobara Cream Stick Foundation in 564
  • MAC Studiofix in NC20
  • Bobbi Brown Blush in Pale Pink

Eyes:

  • Too Faced Shadow Insurance
  • Aromaleigh Wonderland (Gothic Lolita) – lid
  • Aromaleigh Xylia (Lost in Faerie) – outer 1/3
  • Aromaleigh Mirielle (Bete Noire) – crease and blended upwards
  • Beauticontrol Spectaculash in Black
  • Bobbi Brown Gel Liner in Sepia Ink
  • Clinique Superfine Liner for Brows in Black-Brown

Lips:

  • Aromaleigh Lip Balm
  • MAC Peachstock Lipstick (PRO) — this is really becoming a staple nude for me

Also, as of right now, the colors I used in this look are still available for sale from what I can tell. Aromaleigh’s new official close date is now November 15.

Look: Feelin’ the Fall

I was feeling like a Fall look today and to me that means bronzes and golds, like the leaves changing. Here’s what I ended up with (forgive the angry face in the photos…I was looking into the sun!).

What I used:

Face:

  • Shu Uemura Nobara Cream Stick Foundation in 564
  • MAC Studiofix Concealer in NC20
  • Bobbi Brown Blush in Almond

Eyes:

  • Too Faced Shadow Insurance
  • Meow Sand Dune (Egyptian Treasures) – inner corners and inner 1/3 of lid
  • Meow Pyramid (Egyptian Treasures) – middle 1/3 of lid
  • Meow Anubis (Egyptian Treasures) – outer 1/3 of lid and into crease, also lower outer corner
  • Meow Jackal (Egyptian Treasures) – to deepen crease and blended upwards
  • Sugarpill Tako – highlight
  • Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in Zero – waterline
  • Clinique Superfine Liner for Brows in Black-Brown
  • Beauticontrol Spectaculash Mascara in Black

Lips:

  • Aromaleigh Italian Blood Orange Lip Balm
  • MAC Peachstock lipstick (PRO, but mine is from the Liberty of London Collection)

I love these colors, and I’ve always loved Meow’s Egyptian Treasures Collection — all the shadows are buttery smooth, effortless to blend, and stunning with their metallic finish.

This look did not photograph well; you can’t even see the difference in the colors in the natural light! Here’s one inside with a flash, but it still doesn’t look quite true to life:

Do you feel like doing looks based on the season at times?
