Dark smokey eyes, flushed cheeks & coral lips with three new MAC Mineralize spring 2014 products

Klik hier voor de Nederlandse versie.

If I could only wear one make-up look for the rest of my life it would be dark smokey eyes with delicately flushed cheeks and a coral lip. And if I only got to use one make-up brand until the end of my days, MAC might be the one. Today I’m showing you what this ‘what if’ scenario would actually look like and I’m showing you my signature look, created with three new MAC Mineralize spring products. Have a look!

MAC Mineralize Eye Shadow x4 in A Waft Of Grey

MAC Mineralize Eye Shadow x4 A Waft Of Grey review swatches

Earlier this month MAC launched six new MAC Mineralize Eye Shadow quads here in Switzerland as part of the MAC spring 2014 collection. A Whaft of Grey consists of a frosty white, a metallic silver, a shimmery dark grey and a deep black shade with a satin finish. I swear, if ever there were four colors that were made for the perfect smokey evening look it were these four. I just looooove this color palette! You do have to watch out a bit with shimmer fall-out during and even after the application, but other than that the four shades are easy to apply. Their pigmentation is great and even without a base to stick to they all stay nicely put and don’t lose their color intensity throughout the day.

MAC Mineralize Blush in Azalea in the Afternoon

The MAC Mineralize Blush in Azalea in the Afternoon is part of this year’s MAC A Fantasy of Flowers spring collection. MAC describes Azalea in the Afternoon as a mid-tone blue pink with a frosty finish. The cool undertone is barely noticeable though, and the frosty finish doesn’t emphasize large pores and imperfections. The blush is nicely pigmented and easy to blend, and even though the color starts to fade a bit after a few hours it never completely wears off.

MAC Mineralize Rich Lipstick in Be A Lady

For the spring of 2014 MAC filled the MAC store shelves with six new MAC Mineralize Rich Lipsticks. MAC describes Be A Lady as a mid-tone warm coral shade, but I personally think that oh-em-gee-this-is-so-gorgeous is a more fitting description. Be A Lady is just such a lovely color! The color is quite intense and has a subtle sheen, and the formula is deliciously creamy and hydrating. Pure perfection if you ask me.

What do you think? Is this a look that I could wear for the rest of my life without growing tired of it? I sure feel good in it… :-)

P.S.: That bit of orange in my crease is loose MAC pigment in the color Neo Orange, from the MAC 2011 fall collection!

Have you hauled anything from the new MAC spring collections yet? Is this a look you’d wear?

  7. Way to rock this look:) Definitely wearable everyday. I love that eyeshadow palette.

  8. Hi Melissa, classical smokeys is my favorite look of all times but I’m always a bit shy to wear it during the day. What I love about your look (apart from being gorgeous on you) is that it looks very soft for a day make-up that can be easily transformed into an evening one. Simply beautiful.

  9. So pretty, I always love your looks! The lipcolour is amazing!

  10. I’m actually impressed by the quad. I usually stay away from those smokey quads because I gfind all thew shades look the same but in this one there is really a distinct difference between all the shades.

  11. Be a Lady, de lipstick is echt gooorgeous..

  12. I love your whole look! You can never go wrong with smoky eyes and a coral lip. Be A Lady is the only lipstick from the new Mineralize Rich collection I’ve been eyeing.

  13. Ik hou van Mac, is me wat te duur op het moment maar soms is het niet te weerstaan…

    oogschaduw palletje ziet er mooi

  22. Ik heb nog getwijfeld of ik de blush zou bestellen maar ik ben uiteindelijk voor een MSF gegaan. Mooie look !

  23. Mooie look heb je ermee gemaakt! En MAC biedt veel goede producten aan, tot nu toe bevalt alles wat ik getest heb. De swatches van het oogschaduwpalette ziet er erg goed uit en ook de lippenstift vind ik een mooie kleur hebben :) Ik ga zelf geen make-up meer komen tot de zomer.. dus ik skip alle lente collecties van alle merken haha. tenminste, dat is de bedoeling :)

  24. Heel mooie look! Lijkt me perfect draagbaar voor de rest van je leven :D En wil je dan toch eens iets anders kan een nieuwe lipstick kleurtje redding brengen :p

  30. You always do a killer smoky eye! I haven’t tried it much lately because I’ve been into really neutral looks, but you always make me want to give it another go!

  31. Those eye shadows are dazzling! I think that’s one of the best smokey eye quad I’ve seen! Such a great MAC combination!
