First off, thanks for joining me on Beauty Broadcast Live today! It was fun, as always!! Last night while I was trying to get caught up on tweets (still have some catching up to do), I saw this one from @Lily_Beth94...
It made me realize that it's been a long time since I've done a look with my MAC eyeshadows! I happen to really like the ones Lily asked about- Satin Taupe is a really versatile mid-toned shade, and Sketch is one of the first MAC products I ever purchased! It's a pretty plum color. So I decided to put together a soft, everyday look with the shades Lily requested, plus a couple of others. I just love when request prompts a video or blog post-- so keep them coming!! :) Here are all the products I used today...
-Revlon Colorstay Foundation for Normal/Dry Skin (Fresh Beige)
-Cover Girl + Olay Concealer Balm (Fair/Light)
-MAC Prep + Prime Highlighter (Light Boost)
-L'oreal True Match Pressed Powder (Sun Beige)
-NARS Bronzer (Laguna)
-Laura Geller Baked ImPRESSions Blush (Mauve Mocha Latte)
-LORAC Perfectly Lit Powder (Spotlight)
-ELF $1 Eyelid Primer
-MAC Shadows in Satin Taupe, Cork, Sketch, and Shroom
-Rimmel ScandalEYES Liner (Nude - in the waterline)
-L'oreal Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner (Black)
-Estee Lauder Automatic Brow Pencil Duo (Dark Brown)
-Maybelline the Falsies Big Eyes Mascara
-Andrea Strip Lashes #26
Swatched from left to right: MAC shadows in Satin Taupe, Cork, Sketch, and Shroom
For this shadow look, I patted Satin Taupe all over the lid with a flat brush, and also blended it up into the crease with a fluffy brush (you could actually stop there and get a nice "one shadow" look!) Then I blended out the border of Satin Taupe (upper part of the crease/near the brow bone) with Cork. I patted Sketch in the outer corner, slightly pulling it up into the crease. I also used Sketch as my lower liner with a smudge brush, along with a bit of Satin Taupe. See the warmth just above the crease? That's the combination of blending out Sketch and Cork. Kinda cool!
-L'oreal Colour Riche Lipstick (Fairest Nude)
-Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner (Eastend Snob)
-Mally High Shine Liquid Lipstick (Mally's Look)
Thanks for checking out this "Face of the Day" and thanks to Lily for requesting those shadows! :) In case you didn't see it on my YouTube channel this morning, I have an announcement!!!

- You know how cats sometimes seek out a really out of the way place to take a nap? Well Cupcake is napping right in the center of the living room floor right now.
