Hello everyone! I’ve been waiting to break out the insanely beautiful MAC Spellbinder Shadow in Mysterious Influence for a twist on a smokey eye, so I did today for this makeup look. I will say while these shadows are beautiful, they are very finicky to work with. I would recommend applying your foundation after your eyeshadow, and tapping any excess powder off your brush because the fallout from this was crazy! Needless to say even with some not-so-great attributes, I really loved the way this color looked on the eyes. Read below for how I achieved this look, and I’ll have some Valentine’s Day posts coming up soon 🙂
Foundation: Fiona Stiles Luminous Finish Foundation in 01 Porcelain
Concealer: Tarte Shape Tape Concealer in Fair
Powder: Kat Von D Lock-It Translucent Powder (only apply on under eyes because I’m very dry!)
Eyeshadows: Steps in order of application
- Lid: Colorpop Valley Girl Supershock Shadow all over the lid
- Crease: Morphe 35O row 1, shade 6 (khaki brown shade) and row 3, shade 2 (light, neutral brown)
- Outer Lid and Inner 1/3 lid: MAC Spellbinder Shadow in Mysterious Influence (applied with a MAC 242, and my finger to blend, a blending brush has too much fallout with this shadow)
- Lid: Applied more of Valley Girl in the center of the lid
- Outer lid: Used some of Kat Von D’s Jet shadow from the Metal Matte palette to darken the very outer part of the lid. Can use any black shadow.
- Lower lashline: Morphe 35O row 5, shade 2 (golden bronze), then blended Mysterious Influence with that, then used a black shadow with a definer brush close to lower lashes to deepen.
- Browbone and Inner corner: Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter in Golden Lights
Eyeliner: NYX Matte Liquid Liner and L’Oreal Silkissime in Black
Lashes: Eylure Luxe Lashes in Baroque
Blush: Milani Berry Amore Blush
