It started of as a V-Day inspired look, but since I didn't have time to upload this post earlier we shall think of it as a berry-tone trend inspired look! Usually I like to bring out either eyes or lips but since it was meant to be a look for a special event I decided to create a rather sultry look but keeping it one-tonal... As a base I applied MAC Paint Pot in Idyllic [a metallic plum], and over the top I blended through MAC Pro Longwear Eyeshadow in Hot Paprika [a satin peachy/corally cranberry]... I smudged Avon Supershock in Black over the upper lash-line and the lower lash-line... As a mascara I used the MAC False Lashes Extreme Black, which I really like, gives you a great volume but doesn't clump the lashes and comes of easily... And I absolutely adore the packaging of this mascara, sleek and quirky!
And finally two new additions to my MAC collection, which I purchased when I had the V-Day look in mind... The beautiful MAC Pro Longwear Blush in Blush All Day, which is a satin finish and just the most flattering blush which goes with any make-up look! So very happy I got it, along the line with MAC New York Apple, which is a stunning frosty berry shade... When I swatched it at the counter I was amazed that I didn't have it yet... With darker lipsticks you have to take time and either use lip-liners or layer the colour, but New York Apple I just apply haphazardly in seconds and it just looks effortlessly beautiful... I have quite a few lipsticks but this shade has really stood out to me from everything I already have... I highly recommend to check it out!
