FOTD: Lilac Makeup Look With MAC Lovely Lily and Lavender Whip

Since Carol requested a FOTD with MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in Lavender Whip, here is my take on an all-over lilac look.

  1. Hey Phyllis!

    Love this look and your blog. Would you be able to do a demo on how to use MAC’s penultimate liner to create that winged look? I’m having a bit of trouble doing it on myself.

    Thanks in advance!

  3. Hi Phyllis,

    I’ll be getting married soon and i’m wondering if you’d be kind enough to do a bridal makeup entry?!

    any tips will be great appreciated! :)

  4. sigh…u look so dreamy and soo hot! lol!

    phyllis, how do you feel about foundation primers? do you use them?

    also…did you choose that eye shadow color because it matched that purple tint of the lipstick?

  5. Love the lavender-ness! You seem to have really nice skin from looking at your pictures….you should show us some natural pictures! And, let us in on your skin regime. Just a suggestion! =)

  6. btw- are you still doing circle lens custom purchase? i wanted to order some before the deadline but i don’t see your custome purchase tab anymore. please let me know, thanks!

  7. I’m loving the eyes, as usual, but am not too sure about the lip color. I feel like it might be a little too cool for your skin tone, but that’s just my opinion.

  8. I love the color combination … and the contact lense
    color is perfect against the pink lips!

    This is just what I wanted for my next look! Thanks babe!
