FOTD: Monochromatic Lilac Makeup Look

March 24, 2009

Since Carol requested a FOTD with MAC Lavender Cremesheen Lipstick, here is my take on a monochromatic lilac look.

Lilac Makeup Look With MAC Lovely Lily and Lavender Whip

• M·A·C Lovely Lily Pigment and Helium Pigment on eyelid
• M·A·C Penultimate Liner in Black to line

    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!

    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?

    you look beautiful! What contacts are you wearing?

  • Reply Phyllis March 26, 2009 at 10:35 am


    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:

    Oh and that look is HOT!!!!!!!

  • Reply Danielle March 26, 2009 at 3:38 pm

    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.

  • Reply Jase March 26, 2009 at 10:21 pm

    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!

  • Reply Yvette March 26, 2009 at 10:24 pm

    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?
