Afternoon girlies! Last week I blogged about my latest eye shadow Beauty Marked by MAC. I had seen it being used a load of times on You Tube and had been eyeing it up to add to my purple collection. I didn’t really know that much about it except it looked like a beautiful purple on the website.
You can just make out the purple sparkle in this picture
Beauty Marked damp on left, dry finger on right, see what I mean about the colour?
I had a comment on the post from someone called Delyteful Speaks who said that Beauty Marked should be used wet. I’m glad I read this before having a go with it because as you can see from the swatches it looks like a bit of a ‘meh’ colour without a damp brush.
I used my small shader brush by QVS that I got from Superdrug ran it under the tap then tapped it on the e/s, it did pick up a lot more colour. I applied the shadow to my eyelids then blended out to the side slightly then using my MAC 266 brush bought this under the eyes. I used Onyx by Stila black pencil inside the waterline, applied some Max Factor False Lash Effect mascara. To highlight under my brow bone I used Vapour by MAC. I also filled in my eyebrow a bit with the two matte browns from the Sleek Storm palette.
On the MAC website this is described as ‘A deep blackened red with a sparkle/twilight effect (Velvet)’ I absolutely love the colour payoff of Beauty Marked, it’s easy to blend with no fallout. Had I not of read/seen the comment about wetting it I would be none the wiser so thank you for that. I will definitely be wearing this out in a couple of weeks for a birthday do we’ve got coming up.
A while back I tried to do this kind of look with just plain black eye shadow, Darren ♥ told me I looked like a goth and said if I was going to wear it to the pub could I walk in 10 mins after him!! Charming!
I think after using this I will be purchasing Fix+ by MAC, sod walking to the bathroom every time, I’ve heard it’s pretty good too
Do any of you own Beauty Marked or Fix+? Any more tips and tricks for me?
