FOTD: MAC Style Warrior Gold Rebel Yellow + Purple Eye Makeup Look

Here is a makeup look I did from the MAC Style Warrior Collection. Dubbed Gold Rebel, this look consisted of pairing yellow eyeshadow with purple (yes a contrasting color!) and a nude lip.

  1. Phyllis, you look staggeringly gorgeous in the first picture! And I can’t get over your eyebrows–I think I have to go grab the Anastasia kit now. Does the kit help to make your eyebrows look thicker? I’m worried if I fill mine in with the kit it will look dark and unnatural.

  2. wow, that is absolutely gorgeous. I think this is one of the best looks you’ve had. I usually don’t wear much eye makeup…but I think I might try to do this look now.

  3. Jenny,

    Eyebrow pencils are more precise but if you want a natural look, powder is the way to go.

    The Anastasia Brow Kit comes with 3 eyebrow powder shades so if the color I use (the darkest one) is too dark for you, the other one would work.

  4. hey phyllis, i always wanted to ask, what did you put under your eyes beside powder foundation, is it a eye primer? mine look dry n wrinkles more obvious using powder foundation only under eyes.

  5. Jasmine,

    I didn’t use powder foundation on the undereye area. The MAC Mineralize Satinfinish is a liquid foundation with a very creamy texture.

  6. hi!!

    i was looking around in the web for some ideas for my bridal make-up and then i found your site!! i really love your blog!! you’re doing a great job!! since i really love the style you show here, i wanted to ask you if you would recommend this colors as a bridal make-up? or do you think it would be to strong or harsh?? i don’t want to look over-colored as a bride but i dont want to look boring either.. so its a little dilemma at this point.. it would be great if you could tell me what you think.. thanks a lot!

  7. Thanks Bee =)

    If you are going to wear a white gown, I would not recommend using yellow and purple (it just doesn’t go together). But if you are wearing a gown in a different color, you can definitely go for brighter colors.
