FOTD & Tutorial- "Eyepopping" Green and VIDEO: Using the MAC Sculpt & Shape Duo Compact


Here is another fotd/tutorial I did yesterday using Urban Decay's "Graffiti" eyeshadow as well as two of my favorite C-Shock eyeshadows, "Eyepopping" and "Wondergrass". Again I used the Maybelline Liquid Mineral Foundation UNDER my mineral powder foundation and loved the result!

I also included a VIDEO by reader request using the MAC Sculpt & Shape DUO Compact (even though it's pretty much the same steps as the contouring video, but I showed application using the #138 brush)which I got in addition to my PRO Powder that I already have in "Sculpt", but I bought the "Accentuate/Sculpt" compact. **Sorry about the poor video quality, I was using my macbook camera and it sucks...


What I used:


- Smashbox Photo Finish Primer
- Maybelline Liquid Mineral Foundation in "Creamy Natural"
- MMBB Mineral Powder Foundation in "Medium Beige"


- ULTA Blush in "Tender"
- MAC S&S Powder for contouring


- MAC Paint Pot in "Painterly" (all over the lid)
- MAC e/s in "Eyepopping" (inner corners)
- Urban Decay e/s in "Graffiti" (middle of the lid)
- MAC e/s in "Wondergrass" (outer-V)
- MMBB "Highlight" as highlight
- MAC Fluidline in "Nightfish"
- Covergirl Lash Blast Mascara

- MAC lipstick in "Up the Amp"
- NYC Lipgloss in "Iced Orchid"

And then highlight!

To get this!

Then just line and apply mascara!

And the lipstick...

i'm at work so i couldn't look at the video, so i'm unsure if you said it on there or not.

...but what brushes did you use to apply the shadow? i don't think my brushes pick up enough product!

Vanessa said...

Hi Kelly- I used both Essence of Beauty brushes and Sonia Kushuk brushes, to apply hepcat I used the bigger crease brush from EoB.

hey sis! wonderful video! Yay for Nessa in videos! I went to MAC yesteday and almost got that brush but got confused, lol...I thought the brush was smaller for some reason and left with an eyeshadow brush ha that hepcat look by the way, it's hot!

Stephie said...

ate i loved the video, i'm going to buy the brush and powder now... although my bank account is hating you :D hehehe its so nice seeing you on camera, i can't wait to see you in LA!!!! love you <3

Hi Vanessa! I think you're gorgeous! I greatly admire your makeup skills :)

I have a question for you, I hope you don't mind me asking. Do you apply concealer before or after your foundation is applied?

I normally apply before I put on foundation, but I hear a few people apply after. I've talked to one of the MUA at the MAC store & they told me that if I tried to apply concealer after my foundation, I'll end up with a grey color under my eyes. I tried applying concealer after my foundation & I ended up with a grey color underneath my eyes & everywhere else I put concealer on.

Thank you for your time!


Vanessa said...

Awwww Sis Ren! haha you are so cute, im sorry you ended up getting the smaller brush instead. Let me know how you like hepcat!

Stephie! I miss you sis! Yes let's go shopping in LA! Let's go broke TOGETHER! HAHA sorry I am an "enabler" LOL.

Lili- How are you? Thank you so much for the kind words! You are so sweet! :)

I apply concealer BEFORE my foundation as my concealer is a shade lighter than me, also because it's just weird to me to put it over your foundation as you may have two different shades going on, the foundation basically provides coverage over the concealer so you have one shade on your face.

Hope that helps!

Hi =)
I have heard that Loreal's H.I.P eye shadow has the same pigmentation as Mac eyeshadows... I was wondering if you know if this is true or not?
