Brightside/Gallery Gal

I am slowly making my way through that huge MAC haul ... and I really like most of them! This one is kinda disappointing ... again just a bit too subtle for my taste. But it did try the tape trick again and took a photo so everyone can see what I meant. I did it at a more shallow angle today, and I definitely like yesterday's angle better.


basic face routine
Stark Naked blush; used MAC 129 face brush
MAC Sheersheen powder in Lucent on high spots of face; used MAC 129 face brush

MAC shadestick in Beige-ing over entire eye area; blend with fingers
scotch tape placed at angle on side of eye
MAC Brightside MES (cream side) dry on browbone and around entire eye area; used Face Secrets Shadow Blender brush
MAC Gallery Gal MES (olive side) dry in crease, along lower lashline and on outer third of lid; used MAC 217 shadow brush and MAC 239 shadow brush
MAC Brightside MES (cream side) dry on inner two thirds of lid and swept up into crease; used MAC 239 shadow brush
MAC Boot Black liquid liner
Chanel Exceptionnel de Chanel mascara in Smoky Noir

MAC for Emmanuel Ungaro See-Thru lip colour in Not So Shy! (three coats)
MAC Dazzleglass in Baby Sparks

Questions? Comments? Please feel free to post ... and thanks for looking!

And the now famous tape trick!


  1. Thanks for posting a pic of the tape trick! I appreciate it. This is a very pretty, subtle look. The lips look great, worth 3 coats!

  2. OMG!!! I would have never thought to use tape for this. But I tried it earlier tonight and it worked GREAT! Thanks for the tip!


  3. Neat trick! I have to try this!


Please be nice (that doesn't mean you have to like the look ... just be nice about not liking it!) ... no one likes a troll ;)
