FOTD: MAC Barbie Makeup Look

Here is my MAC Barbie-inspired look that I have been wanting to do forever. The collection is not coming out until March over here in London so I just used whatever I got to try to copy the look. Hope you guys like it!

* MAC Melton Mauve eyeshadow as blush
* MAC Prep and Prime Eye in Light as a base
* MAC Metamorph eyeshadow on entire lid and lower eye

  1. I juss got my eyebrow mascara, but when I applied it on, my eyebrows don’t look like lighter. =/ I bought golden brown, am I suppose to trim it, in order for the color to show more?

  2. Is there a lipstick from MAC that is similar to Scanty?? I looked on their site and Scanty isnt there.. I assume it’s LE??

  3. Quote: I juss got my eyebrow mascara, but when I applied it on, my eyebrows don’t look like lighter. =/ I bought golden brown, am I suppose to trim it, in order for the color to show more?

    There can be two reasons as to why your eyebrow gel doesn’t work. It could be that the product is not pigmented enough or your natural eyebrow color is too dark.

    It’s hard for me to tell you what to do when I have not seen your eyebrows. To lighten them, you can also try using a golden brown powder eyeshadow instead of an eyebrow gel.

  4. I’m not sure if Scanty’s LE but it was one of those amplified ones. You can try Emphatic – I heard it’s pretty similar to Scanty.

  5. Hey Phyllis, I absolutely love ur blog with all of ur wonderfully informative post. U look so gorgeous in those pictures (even without makeup). I wonder if u can do a tutorial with pictures on how to apply foundation and concealer. My skin is pretty bad. Do you reccomend any kind of foundation that will provide full coverage.Waiting for ur reply..and again, u look really stunning in all th pics u took.
    Another thing is that even i read ur tutorial on how to apply falsies,i can’t get it right..need help on that one.

  6. I’m looking for the scanty lipstick. is it true that its been discontiued? and where do u get yours now?


  7. Jelly, I got my Scanty at the MAC store but yes I heard it has been discontinued. Your best bet would be ebay.

  8. Hey I LOVE your blog! Please will you do a post with make-up inspired by the Beijing Opera female singers?
    Keep up the good work!
