MAC Style Black look












A dramatic, dark purple look inspired by and using products from MAC's Style Black collection. I personally love intense looks like this especially for both eyes and lips, but this look can easily be toned down. You can sub out the dark lips for something more nude, and just use one of the MAC Glimmerglasses from the collection on top. You could also use the basics of this look with any of the other mineralize eyeshadows released with this collection. Some suggestions of what to combine the other colors with:

Gilt by Association: Combine with cool light gold and bronze shades
Cinderfella: Combine with silver, gray, and navy blue shades
Blue Flame: Combine with violet, turquoise and Prussian blue shades


Eyes
MAC Bat Black cream color base, MAC Young Punk mineralize e/s, FaceFront Cosmetics mineral e/s in Little Gremlin, Ben Nye Toast e/s, Makeup Forever Nr. 92 e/s, generic black gel eyeliner, Ben Nye blac eyeliner pencil, MAC Spiked brow pencil

Lips
MAC Velvetella Cremestick lipliner, MAC Night Violet Mattene lipstick, MAC Blackfire Glimmerglass


Cheeks
MAC Blonde MSF, Illamasqua powder blush in Chased

Nails
Zoya Ki .

  5. This is so stunning, that I busted out of the video (paused it) and came here to look up close. Then, went back to the video and saved the photo for reference. I'm wearing this eye this weekend. I don't know to what, but I'm wearing it.

    wow.
    i simply adore this look.

    unfortunately, the style-blacks here sold out (probably 30 seconds after delivery to the store), so i have to use what i have in stock. but: i think i have some good replacement colors for this (purple) look in stock - and a party this saturday will be the perfect event to wear this look :)

    (and my ex with his utterly nondescript new g/f not even half his age (really! no joke ...) will be even more jealous of my future hubbie *griiin*)

    wish you a perfect weekend and lots and lots of sunshine!
