Makeup of the Day – Purples with MAC and Urban Decay

I had a great doctor’s appointment today (super productive!) and it’s finally NOT FREEZING around here and looking like spring again!  I decided to do some fun makeup in my favorite color – purple!

Makeup of the day – MAC Pink Nouveau Lipstick 

I got this great MAC satin lipstick in Pink Nouveau in a blog sale and I think I’m in love!  MAC Pink Nouveau is a very cool toned blue based pink lipstick in a satin formula.  I decided to deepen it up a bit with NYX Edge Pink lip liner, which borders on being fuscia.  

  
I think it looks great with Tarte Dollface blush, which is also a very cool toned pink!

  
The shadows I’m wearing are MAC Vanilla on the brow bone, Copperplate as my crease transition shade, and Howzat as the lid and outer V shade and smudged along the lower lash line.

  
I put up my hair to show off the jewelry my friend made me ❤

Makeup of the day – Daytime smoky eye with MAC 

So, from time to time, I find myself pining for the Urban Decay Smokey palette.  I always talk myself out of it, because I HAVE THOSE COLORS (repeat to self 500 times).  I’m a sucker for packaging and I have the other 3 Naked palettes and will probably keep pining, though…even with my psychology degree, I’m a marketer’s dream come true!  Regardless, here’s a smoky look today I put together with some MAC shadows – enjoy!

  
  
  
Eye look was done with Bobbi Brown Cream Eyeshadow in Bone as a base, then I used MAC Copperplate eyeshadow as a transition shade in the crease and MAC Howzat shadow (LE, but substitute any deep frosty grey you like) in the crease below the transition shade and all over the lid.  I used MAC Electra eyeshadow to highlight the center of the lid. I blended Blanc Type on the brow bone as a highlight and used Howzat below the eye with a pencil brush.  I then used MAC Nehru on a 266 angled eyeliner brush for a soft smoky eyeliner…no liquid liner today!

You can take this look even smokier with black or grey liner on the waterline, but spring allergies dictate that I’m not doing this today – LOL! 

Blush is NYX Ombre Blush in Mauve Me and Lipstick is Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in Lovecraft.

Makeup of the day with NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Copenhagen

Man, I should know that my lips are too dry in February for a liquid to matte lip color…but LOOK at this shade!  I mean really!  My lips are going to pay later and I’ll be slathering on the NUXE Réve de Miel lip balm to try and make up for it.  But….MATTE GOODNESS.
