Orange A-Peel

16 Apr

I’ve actually done this look a ton of times in real life, but it’s making its debut on the blog here as a bright, but not too bright look — perfect for spring into summer. To bring this look into summer, I’d probably apply MAC Blush in Strada to the cheeks for a more “bronzed” complexion.

Brushes you’ll need:

– MAC #’s 217 (blending brush), 214 (short shader brush), 222 (tapered blending brush), 242 (shader brush), 266 (small angle brush), and 116 (blush brush)

Products you’ll need:

– MAC Eyeshadows in Gorgeous Gold, Goldmine, Kid, Tete-a-Tint, and Juiced
– MAC Paint Pot in Painterly
– MAC Powder Blush in Margin
MAC Lipstick in Lightly Ripe
– MAC Tinted Lipglass in Pink Lemonade

– MAC Fluidline in Blacktrak

Supplemental: – A brow-filling productMascara


[* Apply MAC Paintpot in Painterly all over eyelids as a base using your fingers.
Highlight the brow bone with a mixture of Gorgeous Gold and Goldmine [all the way down to the crease] (242).
Shade in below the crease and blend highlighting colors with Kid (242).
Apply Tete-a-Tint over Kid to intensify the outer V (222).
[* Line the lower lash line with Juiced (214).

[* Line
the upper lash line with Blacktrak (266).


[* Apply Margin to the apples of the cheeks. (116)


[* Create coral lips by first applying Lightly Ripe and layering with Pink Lemonade on top.

Additional finishing steps: [Fill in eyebrows using MAC’s #208 Angled Brow brush and MAC Eyeshadow in Charcoal Brown], [Tame unruly brows using MAC Brow Finisher in Clear], and [Darken lashes using MAC’s Plushlash mascara in Plushblack].
