LOOK: Peach and Pink - Inspired by MAC Spring Colour Forecast

Photobucket
Hi everyone! I'm sorry for the lack of posts lately. I've been really busy with work and life + a little bit lazy with my blogging. For a while, blogging started to feel like a chore for me and decided I needed a bit of a break and actually blog when I want to (as opposed to feeling like I have to!). I meant to do this look ever since MAC Spring Colour Forecast came out (4 weeks ago!), but I never had the time. I'm on a short Easter break now, and I realise I haven't posted a LOOK in a long time. So here's my peach and pink look inspired by the Coral sub-collection in MAC Spring Colour Forecast! I think it looks sweet and good enough to eat lol. I hope you like it xxx


I used:

EYES
MAC Rubenesque paint pot (base)
MAC eyeshadows in Nanogold (highlight), Dear Cupcake (satin medium-pink, crease), Evening Aura (peachy gold, lid)
MAC Black Russian eye liner (black with sparkles, upper lashline)
MAC Fascinating eye kohl (white, waterline)
Maybelline Falsies Mascara - love! ♥
MAC Spiked brow pencil

FACE
MAC Select Moisturecover concealer
MAC Mineralized Skin Finish Natural
MAC Sun & Moon mineralized blush
MAC Pearl cream colour base

LIPS
MAC Mouth Off lip pencil (orange)
MAC Fresh Salmon lipstick (coral with gold sheen)

I really liked this look and the bf complimented me on it. When I do wear a full face of makeup, I usually go for dark and smokey makeup and not like this, but since I like the way this turned out, I think I'll try wearing brighter colours more often. ♥ What's your makeup style? ♥

I've also been sporting these green contacts since Spring started. They're Flex Wear Emotions, although I can't recall the shade name. I really like them. I had them in my stash for a while (sealed of course), but I just decided to whip them out when I saw the gorgeous Amanda Seyfriend on the cover of one of the recent magazines - Glamour I think?

As I said, I really like these green contacts but my bf seems to prefer me with my brown or blue lenses. What do you think? ♥

Do you like this look?? xx

I also got to check out the MAC Liberty of London collection last week, and my haul will be on my next post! :) x

  17. @bowsnhearts- I actually felt that way about Evening Aura too! But I found out that if you use a good gold-toned base (I used Rubenesque paint pot) and pack the eyeshadow on, it will show. Trust me. Try it! :)

    @Linda Phuong Tran - Bf says he prefers my brown eyes too. You're right, it might just be boys! :P

  22. Fresh and spring-like - I've always liked the gold-pink combination as it really flatters any kind of eyes
