Plum Dandy

In honor of the picking up a purple-colored spaghetti strap camisole from Forever 21 last weekend for $2.50, I decided to put together an outfit to show off my new purchase as well as a make-up look to go with it. The look turned out to be very summertime date-night - appropriate.

Brushes you'll need:

- MAC #'s 214 (short shader brush), 217 (blending brush), 242 (shader brush), 222 (tapered blending brush), Small Angle Brush (263), and 116 (blush brush)

Products you'll need:

- MAC Eyeshadows in Vanilla, Da Bling, Plum Dressing, Nocturnelle, and Sketch
- MAC Paintpot in Painterly
- MAC Powder Blushes in Tenderling and Flirt 'N Tease
- MAC Lipstick in Cherish
- MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack

- A brow-filling product - Mascara


[* Cover the entire lid from below the brow to the lash line with Painterly using your finger.
[* Apply Vanilla to hightlight the area underneath the brow bone (217).
[* Apply Da Bling to the inner third of the lid (242).
[* Apply Plum Dressing to the middle of the lid, blending it with Da Bling (242).
[* Sweep Nocturnelle from the outer corner of the lid to almost all the way across the crease, blending it with Plum Dressing (222).
* Further darken the outer corner with a bit of Sketch (222).
[* Adding more Vanilla onto your brush, blend the highlighting colors & the colors at the crease together (217).
[* Using Sketch, line the lower lash line from the outer corner to the middle of the eye (214).
[* Line the upper lash line with Blacktrack (263).


* Use Tenderling as a rosy base and apply it to the apples of the cheeks and enhance the middle of the apples with a bit of Flirt 'N Tease (116).


Since the eyes steal the show, apply Cherish, a nude lipstick with a hint of pink to lips.

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