FOTD & TUTORIAL: Beautiful Iris + Nocturnelle



What I used:

- MAC Oil Control Lotion
- Silk Naturals Foundation
- MAC Sculpting Powder in Sculpt


- MAC Paint Pot in "Painterly" (all over lid)
- MAC eyeshadow in "Beautiful Iris" (first half of lower lid)
- MAC eyeshadow in "Nocturnelle" (outer V and contour)
- Flirt! eyeshadow in "Black Ivy" (outer V)
- Minerals Bath and Body "Highlight" as highlight on browbone
- Indelible Gel Eyeliner in "Black Out"
- Maybelline XXL Curl Power Mascara in "Blackest Black"


- Everyday Minerals Blush in "Email Me"
- MAC MSF in "Gold Spill"

- MAC Lipstick in "Snob"
- MAC 3D Lipglass in "Lightswitch"

Step 1: Apply paint pot in "Painterly" all over the lid (not shown).

To get this result:

Step 4: Apply a matte black eyeshadow to the outer-V (refer to the diagram on top to see where to apply it)

Unlined/No Mascara eyes, this is how it should look so far:

Step 5: Line and apply mascara!

Hey Vanessa,

I just loooove your eyes. Are you using falsies or is that your natural lashes?

I am so envious

You know, I think that violets and purples look absolutely STUNNING with your shade of skin. :] Just wanted to let you know that. :P

The colors you used are gorgeous too. :]

And I love how the snob lipstick looks, you make me wanna buy it... but it might not look as good on me as it does on you. haha. :]

Thanks Christiana! My favorite color is purple haha I think that's why I end up doing lots of looks with purple! LOL, the Snob lipstick is one of my favorite lipsticks! It's a very pretty pink!

Thanks Anonymous!

Purple is so your color, girlfriend. Your liquid liner looks soooo good, too! Did you use a flat angled brush like the 266?
