MAC Burgundy X9 Make Up Tutorial



2015-07-27 12.15.13


Recently MAC has come out with their pre made palettes. I was never really into them until I saw the Mini palettes such as the one above. This palette is 9 eyeshadows that fit into their regular four pan palette. This palette is so handy for travelling or putting in your make up bag for touch ups.

There are 4 different palettes to choose from I went for the Burgundy one. The shades in this palette are Honey Lust, Poppyseed, Quarry, Antiqued, Embark, #noir, Haux, Star Violet and Sketch. The price of this eye shadow palette is €40 and I bought mine of Brown Thomas . They were amazing it came within two days I would highly recommend them if you live in the Republic of Ireland.

Onto the Eyeshadow look;


L’Oreal Infalliable foundation in 120, Urban Decay Naked Concealer in Warm Neutral, MAC Harmony to Contour, NYC Sunny Bronzer, MAC Soft and Gentle to Highlight


MAC Soft Ochre paint pot to prime, MAC Cork in the crease, MAC Embark to deepen the crease and outer corner. Sketch in the outer corner. MAC Honey Lust all over the lid.


Soap and Glory Brow Archery in Hot Chocolate


Maybelline  Color Sensational in 725 Tantalising Taupe.

One Minute Smokey Eye


I wear some version of a smokey eye almost everyday. So when you are rushing in the morning you need something that is quick and will always look great!

First of all use the right tools, this will make your life so much easier. I use either a MAC 217 or Blank Canvas E25 for blending and a MAC 232 for packing on the colour. They are the only two brushes you need!

For eyeshadows I préfère warm toned browns but if you prefer cool tones go with that. I only use three colours for this smokey eye. Cork, Swiss Chocolate and Woodwinked all by MAC.

To start I apply Cork into my crease spend your time and really buff this in. Next I apply Swiss Chocolate to the outer third of my eye, still concentrating on my crease. Then I pack on Woodwinked with a flat shader brush all over my lid, don’t go into the crease. Final step is to buff is all in with your blending brush! Viola there is your one minute smokey eye.

The key to this look is a little colour and a lot of blending! Go on Try it and tag me in your pictures @laurenaalice or use the #laurenaalice

For the rest of my face I am wearing the usual; Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk in shade 4, Urban Decay Naked Concealer in Warm Neutral, MAC Harmony to Contour, BareMinerals Mineral Veil to set my foundation.  For my Brows I am using Soap and Glory Archery pencil in Brownie Points and my lashes are all down to Benefit Roller Lash. Finally on my lips its MAC Pattisiere.
