MOTD | MAC A Novel Romance

Friday, August 22, 2014

MAC recently released a very gorgeous, jewel toned, perfect for fall/winter collection...A Novel Romance. Despite it's cheesy inspiration, this collection is romantic all on its own! Today I created a look using some of my haulage from the collection.

Starting out, I used my ol' faithful Urban Decay Eden Primer, then I whipped out the quad An Amorous Adventure. Here is how I achieved this gorgeous jewel toned eye look:

- Apply Sable on the lid, up to the crease
- Apply Brawn in the crease, all the way into the inner corner
-Apply Sex & The Oyster in the crease, up to the inner corner (stopping slightly before the inner corner)
- Apply the Electric Cool Eyeshadow in Blacklit in the outer V
- Apply Black Tied right over Blacklit to set

Now we have come to the eye lining portion of this deal. These Fluidline Eye Pencils are pretty much self explanitory...they are literally a fluidline, in a pencil form...and I am obsessed. The only thing I don't like about these new eyeliners, is the packaging. It is super plastic-y and feels cheap, just like the Stila Smudgesticks.
Enough of the packaging is how I applied them:

-Apply Black Brilliance to upper lashline, and create a cat eye. Also tightline the upper waterline to ensure a deep smoky look.
-Apply Water Willow (hello gorgeousness!) to the lower lashline, and waterline. Smudge the lower lashline with Sex & They Oyster (such a great pairing with Water Willow)
-False lashes are optional!

Lastly it is time for the lips! I only picked up 3 lippies from this collection, and I love them all! Since I was going for a deep fall look today, I reached for MAC's Hearts A Flame. 

-Apply MAC Lip Pencil in Stone
-Apply MAC Hearts A Flame 

I am so in love with this collection, I am trying to hold the urge back to pick up even more! Definitely check this out at your local counter ladies...or just order some of this gorgeousness IMMEDIATELY!!!
