Orange A-Peel

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

- A brow-filling product - Mascara


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].
