Romp Along

4 Jun

I use MAC Charcoal Brown daily as a brow filler, but I’ve never actually used it in on my lid as an eyeshadow!  Today, I thought I’d test it out and do a smoky brown look.  I also found out it has a very similar base color to Romp, although Romp has shimmer and Charcoal Brown doesn’t.

I had a mini-reunion with some family members whom I haven’t seen in eight years and I wanted to look sophisticated.  I like this look because it’s not too over the top, but it does say “young, mature woman.”  The colors on my eyes are echoed in my blouse and although I try not too match my clothes to my make-up, I chose similar colors.  This look features MAC Sable and Kid eyeshadows.

I love the look of pastels in the spring, but it is a bit of a challenge making them look sophisticated instead of childish.  Here is a fun, but not too bright blue-green, mermaid & beach-inspired look featuring Lucky Green and Steamy MAC eyeshadows:
