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

Lilac Makeup Look With MAC Lovely Lily and Lavender Whip

Wearing MAC Lavender Whip Lipstick

What I Used

* Jane Magical Mushroom eyeshadow to fill in eyebrows
* MAC Lovely Lily Pigment and Helium Pigment on eyelid
* MAC Penultimate Liner in Black to line
* Taiwanese Lashes on top
* Marbelized side of MAC Mineralize Blush Duo in Moon River lightly on cheekbones
* MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in Lavender Whip applied lightly topped with MAC Kitschmas pigment on center

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

  15. This look is great & so wearable! Thanks, I’ll be trying it out soon!

  16. WOW i love this look. rock the hell outta that sh*t girl :) so so so cute for this wonderful spring weather!

  17. 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! =)

  18. you look beautiful! What contacts are you wearing?

  19. Tina,

    Yes I have used foundation primers before but since I only wear foundations for the FOTD looks and on special occasions, I don’t use them much anymore.

    Here is an old entry on primers that I wrote:

  20. Rachel,

    I’m wearing Geo Tri-Color lenses in Green.

  21. Dang Beautiful!
    Lilacs never looked so good ;)

  22. i love the taiwanese lashes! anyway you can get those as custom purchase?

  25. 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.

  26. 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!

  27. oh wow i like this one. the lilac looks really nice!

    I was wondering, in your opinion, what kind of make up would go best with a little black dress?

  28. i love the eyes! your beautiful!

    I have the bliss peeling serum and i definately have a lot of samples.. gonna last me for a while .. but i was just wondering when do you use it? right after you use toner :S or what? :S i’m so confused… can you help me please thanks so much

  29. Catherine–there are instructions for the serum on the bliss website. hope that helps.

  30. Hi Phyllis,

    What shadow did you put on your lower lashline? The pinkish-grey colour?
    You look good, as always!
