Reader Looks- Sheila shows us the real way to use MAC Pharoah Paint Pot!


My good friend Sheila from high school is such a doll and is a queen at applying makeup, here is her FOTD!

War Paint:

Smashbox Primer,
Maybelline Mineral Loose Powder in Light 4
Benefit Boing Concealer in 2 Med

Kevyn Aucoin Precision Brow
Pencil (the best!) It has won an award by Allure.

BROW BONE- Rubenesque paint pot
Nylon eyeshadow
LID- Pharaoh paint pot and Reflects
Transparent Teal glitter (use on eye area
at your own risk, the paint pot keeps
mine in place)
CREASE: MAC: Rule e/s
EYELINER: Almay black liquid liner
WATERLINE: MAC Technakohl liner in
LASH LINE: MAC Shadestick in Penny
MASCARA: Voluminous, black


I used Rubenesque
paint pot as a base for the top of my cheeks
for the first time. I loved it,
because it kept "Dancing Light"
beauty powder in place for my
highlight. On the apples of my
cheeks I used MAC blush in Style. Gotta
love that coral shimmer!

Lips: Salmon lipstick by Bobbi Brown

WOW. that is all I have to say. Sheila really knows how to work those colors!

i'm so jealous about your Diane von Fursternberg Bag. It's sooo pretty and it definitely looks like the perfect carry-on bag- stylish, small, yet big enough for all your carry-on needs.

one itsy bitsy favor. is it okay if im not called "krys" (i hope i dont sound mean! i feel soooooo guilty typing this). i prefer to be called krystle because my daddy's nickname is chris. i know you didnt know this about me, but just letting you know. (hope you're not mad at me!)

hope you have a great weekend!
(sorry so long)

Vanessa said...

Sure Krystle! Sorry about that, I have a couple of gals with that name and just by habit I call them that for short!

Julie said...

Wow, she's pretty! And those colours look stunning on her! The green just makes her eyes pop!

And her cheeks! Omg, beautiful!


The makeup looks great! something about her eyes makes her look so mysterious!

thats genius how she paired an orangy-gold like rubenesque with pharoah! she pulls it off really well, i know that colour combo would look wrong on me. but on her the colours contrast nicely instead of clashing.


Shelia is very talented with with a makeup brush :)
