I’ve been playing around with MAC’s Nebula pigment (Karen wrote about it here) and here’s a look I keep gravitating towards at least once a week. The following is what I used:
- MAC Nebula pigment
- MAC Greasepaint Stick in Slick Black
- MAC Folie eyeshadow
- MAC Patina eyeshadow
- YSL Dessin Du Regard Waterproof eyeliner in Black
- DiorShow Waterproof Mascara
- Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion
I applied the eyeshadow primer and then the greasepaint stick to create a sticky base for the pigment to stick on. Using a MAC 239 brush, I patted Nebula pigment on my eyelid, focusing on the area closest to the upper lashline. Then I placed Folie in my crease with a MAC 275 brush; Patina in my inner corner with a MAC 219 brush. Lastly I used a MAC 217 brush to blend both shades together to create a nice gradient. It’s not very visible here, of course. *Cough* The eyeliner is a soft, smudgy black pencil by YSL. I do set it with transparent powder to prevent smudging.
I’m wearing Chanel’s Perfection Lumiere Foundation and Tarte’s Cheek Stain in Tipsy (as I wanted a barely there blush look with a slight sheen). Strangely my lipstick was not so nude in real life. It was MAC’s Syrup layered on top heaps of lip balm (Thank you, Winter).
Excuse the slightly harsh expression in the photograph. My eyes become very sensitive to light in Winter and then in Spring, they re-adjust a bit better.
