MAC Nebula Pigment – Smoky Eye in a Jar

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.

Key Products - YSL Dessin Du Regard Waterproof liner in Black, MAC Nebula Pigment, MAC Syrup Lipstick

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.

  1. Somehow the hair, makeup and even what you’re wearing is a perfect winter look! I really do LOVE the eye makeup on you, suits you SO well. Tutorials – you should totally do that for us 😉

    • Thank you for the compliment! 🙂 I always get stuck in a rut with sweater+jeans in Winter as I’m very limited to what works well for my body type. Like the shirt+sweater combo doesn’t suit me 😦

      So I usually end up buying all kinds of sweaters and wearing them with various singlets inside. This is one of my favourites as I love the deep blurple (blue+purple) shade.

      I don’t know if I’ll ever do a tutorial 🙂 I’m not really a beauty blogger as I just play around with shadows, etc..more of a hobbyist. It’s also very hard to take good makeup pics at my apartment as the lighting is not ideal.

  2. You look so wonderful! Excellent. I love how you’re able to pull off such a dark colour under the eye without looking like a badger – that takes skill! You’re a skillful, beautiful lady, miss F! 😀 I love how Patina looks on your inner corner 🙂

    • Hehehe thanks P! I just haven’t gotten around to applying eyeshadow on my lower lash line so I use eyeliner alone and that’s easy to smudge (from the waterline). I’m hooked on Patina as an inner corner highlight…I barely use anything else lately. Thank you for suggesting it to me 🙂

      What are your favorites lately?

      • I’ve been wearing my newbies Cloudy Afternoon and Power Surge kohl a lot or heavy winged liner 🙂 fell back in love with Amazon Princess blush! 🙂

      • Ohhh Cloudy Afternoon. That’s a pretty shade. Will definitely suit you very well. I also think it’s a shade that can go with many different colours of eyeliner.
