MAC Call Me Bubbles quad, two ways!

First, I wanted to say thanks to everyone who "shopped" my blog sale! Everything purchased so far was shipped Saturday. If you live in the US, you should have an e-mail from me with a tracking number. Thanks again, guys! #endblogsaleupdate

Okay, so last night I was in a "playing with makeup" mood. I had just gotten a sample of the NARS tinted moisturizer along with the MAC Call Me Bubbles quad, Watch Me Simmer lipstick, and a new one from Lancome's Rouge in Love line called Sweet Embrace. I decided to try to recreate the look the makeup artist at my MAC counter (her name was Amanda, I think, and she was awesome!). 

I'll definitely rock this look when the weather gets warmer, but with Sweet Embrace on the lips, I'd feel comfortable wearing it out right now! Anyways, enjoy! (And please pardon my 2nd-day hair - I'm not one of those girls who can pull it off!).

YSL Touche Eclat (#1 Radiance) under eyes
MAC Call Me Bubbles quad: Full of Flavour (matte pink/coral) as blush
Benefit Watts Up


MAC Let Me Pop paint pot (LE, from Cham Pale)
MAC Call Me Bubbles eyeshadow quad: Fresh Daily & Full of Flavour on lid/under eyes, Brash in crease, Call Me Bubbles in inner corners/brow highlight
Paul & Joe eye pencil in Bleecker Street
Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Lucky
Maybelline Master Shape Brow in Dark Brown
YSL Faux Cils Shocking mascara


MAC Watch Me Simmer lipstick

Now, this is the exact same look, only switching out the lipstick for Lancome's Rouge In Love 307B Sweet Embrace.  Instantly, the look becomes more day/work-friendly...

I also did a youtube video, mostly just chatting about the products used in this look. Check it out if you're not sick of my face yet! ;)
