FOTD: MAC Love Lace Warmed Up with By Candlelight & Treasured




















The MAC Love Lace Collection probably isn't sitting at your local MAC counter anymore, but I still love and adore it. The colors that are part of the MAC Love Lace Collection remind me of the winter sunsets I see from my apartment. Starting with the cool dark blue sky fading to a taupey mauve and then to the faint hint of yellow. They're softly romantic and a hint mysterious. Just the right look for a great Valentine's Day ;) PS Mind the flyaways in my hair. It was an exceptionally dry day for once around here. ;)

What I used:
Eyes:
Urban Decay Eye Shadow Primer Potion
MAC Paint Pot, Bare Study
MAC Eye Shadow, Pincurl
MAC Eye Shadow, Hypnotizing
MAC Eye Shadow, Love Lace
MAC Eye Shadow, Femme Fi
MAC Fluidline, Blacktrack
MAC Studio Fix Lash Mascara, black
EDIT: *MAC Kohl Power Eye Pencil, Sense of Style*

Cheeks:
MAC Beauty Powder Blush, Tippy
MAC MSF, By Candlelight

Lips:
MAC Lipstick, Treasured
MAC Lipglass, Lap of Luxury

Directions: Apply UDPP to lids and allow to set. Apply Bare Study to lids with a MAC 242 or 252 brush. Apply Femme Fi to brow bone. Apply Pincurl to inner third of lids with a MAC 228 or 239 brush. Apply Love Lace to middle and outer third of lids with a MAC 239 brush. Apply Hypnotizing to crease and above crease using a MAC 226 brush. Blend out harsh lines with a MAC 217 brush. Apply Blacktrack with a MAC 208 or 212 brush. Apply Hypnotizing to lower lashline with a MAC 219 brush. Apply Sense of Style to lower waterline. Curl lashes and apply Studio Fix Lash. Apply Tippy to cheeks with a MAC 131 or 188 brush. Apply By Candlelight to desired areas to highlight. Apply Treasured to lips and top with Lap of Luxury.

  2. Thanks Marce! I don't tend to reach for cool colors, but the Love Lace Collection made me stop and try something different out :)
