just another pink and purple look...
i was feeling lazy today, so i decided to shy away from a lot of colors and blending and trying out new color-combos so i decided to go with my most fave look: pinks and purples. but this time, i decided to try out the pigments i got from MAC as well as the blush.
used: Smashbox Photofinish Light primer, MUFE Mat Velvet Liquid Foundation in shade 25, MAC blush in Dollymix, Smashbox lip primer on the lips then topped with TFS Lipstick.
you might be wondering why i still applied mineral e/s on top of the MAC Helium pigment. The thing was, when i spritzed my brush with the mixing medium and dipped it on some of the pigments and mixed it and applied it on my lids, the mixture became cakey. I had a hard time blending it. Maybe blame it on the brush that i used (Elianto e/s brush, even tried my Fanny Serrano e/s brush) or the mixing medium or i'm just plain stupid in applying them wet using a mixing medium. ARRGGGHHH..
I don't wanna lose hope on this mixing medium and most esp not on applying pigments wet, especially the ones i got from MAC! so dear ladies, please help me...i am now thinking of taking Mikee's suggestion (MAC SA) to use a cream eyeshadow as base before applying pigments. but i've seen tutorials of other ladies using MAC pigments with their mixing mediums (MAC or the home-made one) so maybe it's the brush? or maybe it's just me? waaahhh....
anyways, let me just say that i love MAC blush in Dollymix though in the pics, i look like a clown...i look normal in person, promise! LOL! This blush looks berry red in the pan but i applied it using my 187 brush and it did make wonders. i look refreshed, minus the eyebags please. again..ignore them.
and like i've said, being a SUTIL person that i am...i am not giving up on applying these pigments wet...not yet!
