Baby, It's Cold Outside!

Well ... not really ... actually about 60 today but really really foggy all day. It has been COLD for several days before that though ... and since I got this new MAC Chill collection in yesterday I thought the title was appropriate. You can see my opinions about this collection (love!) in the swatch post I have from yesterday.

As for the look, this was actually much better before I decided to try putting on the lashes and screwed everything up! I worked with those things for half an hour before I finally got really angry and ripped them off. By then I had rubbed off alot of the pigmentation in this and had to completely redo the liner and mascara. I plan on redo-ing this one, because it was gorgeous before I started messing with the lashes.


basic face routine
Pink Ice blush; used Tapered Blush brush

MAC shadestick in Beige-ing over entire eye area; used fingers to blend
MAC Vellum frost shadow dry on browbone and around entire eye area; used Face Secrets Shadow Blender brush
MAC Apres-Ski matte shadow dry in crease and on outer third of lid; used MAC 217 and 239 shadow brushes
MAC Mont Black velvet shadow in interior crease and along lower lashline; used MAC 219 shadow brush
MAC Arctic Grey lustre shadow dry on middle third of lid; used MAC 239 shadow brush
MAC Wintersky veluxe pearl shadow dry on inner third of lid, wrapped around inner corner and along outer half of lower lashline and swept up into crease; used MAC 239 shadow brush
MAC Penultimate Liner pen in Rapidblack along upper lashline only
Lancome Oscillation mascara in Black Noir

Krystal Buxom lip polish; blot
MAC lipglass in Snowscene

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


  1. I LOVE IT! Can't wait to get my goodies next week!

    Was this an early attempt at falsies? My first time took me 30+min... :o| Half lashes are MUCH easier to apply!

  2. I LOVE this! On of my all time favorite looks of yours. I really like this collection and am actually tempted by it! Oh, Erin, as if a BE addiction was not enough...

  3. Another beautiful look! I have not yet seen a collection that does not look great on you.


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 ;)
