Purple for Grapes FOTD!

Hi guys! I'm sorry I left you all hanging for a while. I've been working non-stop for the past week! I really enjoy working at MAC. The people at my counter are so friendly and laid-back. The whole experience is so different from when I freelanced for MAC at Macy's in Gainesville. I will do a more in-depth post about my interview/experience at both MAC counters for those of you who are interested.

Today I'm posting a FOTD (OMG Shock Horror!! FOR REALZ?!) that I wore to the counter. It's kinda different from what I usually do. It's a lot smokier and the liner isn't as thick. I wanted to wear purple b/c I'm really obsessed with purples lately.

Overall look:

What I used:
Face:
--Rimmel Fix & Perfect foundation primer
--MAC F&B foundation in C30
--Cinema Secret profession cream foundation in 302 on cheeks to conceal pimples
--Coverblend concealer in Light on dark circles
--Ben Nye poudre visage in Banana

Cheeks:
--MAC Refined Golden bronzer
--Ben Nye Contour 1
--MAC Stray Rose blush
--MAC Soft & Gentle MSF to highlight

Eyes:
--MAC Parfait Amour e/s all over lid
--MAC Grape pigment in the crease
--MAC Shady Lady in outer v/bottom liner
--Stila Chinois e/s to highlight
--Stila kajal liner in Tiger eyes
--random falsies UNDER the real lashes

Lips:
--Jordana easyshine l/s in Fresh Melon <--review coming up soon

Dana: I used to freelance for MAC when I was a full time student. Now I work for MAC as a permanent employee! The treatment toward freelancer and permanent staff is soo different. I'm really enjoying being a permanent staff.

I love this look! I really don't know how you do it. I have single-eyelids like you and my eye-make up never turns out right so i've given up trying to use shadows. Could you film a tutorial for this? I would totally give it another shot if you did :) Love the smokey look, but can never achieve it on my monolids :(

A really nice change! Love the less liner look, very different and softer looking.
