Cosmetic Case of the Mondays

Well, we got through the first week of the blog (woop woop!) and I want to thank everyone for tuning in and I hope you’re each enjoying it thus far!  Today I wanted to launch my first installment of “Cosmetic Case of the Mondays”, where each Monday I’ll gab about something within the wonderful world of makeup!  Perhaps it will be a specific product review or maybe a whole finished look, “I don’t know, I don’t know if we’ll have enough time!”  Either way, hopefully it will help cushion the blow that a new work week is upon us and we’re back to reality (sad trombone).

This week I wanted to discuss my favorite products in MAC’s new Styleseeker collection, which is featuring fabulous colors for Fall.  I had the privilege of checking out this line first hand when I visited my favorite MAC gal, Ina, at Bloomies on Friday for a little makeup sesh.

We opted to test out the Whims & Fancies Eye Shadow x2 palette and Dark Diversion blackened plum gel liner for a purple, smokey look.  Since we were going for the darker eye we opted to keep the cheeks and lips a soft peachy pink (blush: Supercontinental; lips: Peach Blossom Lipstick with Paper Lantern Cremesheen Glass).  The end result was amazing!  You can really customize the look depending on how dramatic you want it to be.  Jared and I were going out with friends that evening for a casual dinner so I certainly didn’t want to be so done up that it seemed like this was our first time in a public establishment, so the look was fitting.  However, if you did want to intensify the eyes, putting a little bit of Urban Decay’s Busted shadow in the corner would definitely do the trick!

Here’s the complete look:

Be sure to give Ina a call if you are in the South Florida area and would like her to help figure out what fall colors would be best for you!  She literally is beyond talented, funny (added bonus) and best part is she’s HONEST!
