Hot Hepcat Look

Hi Bellas,

This is a look I actually did a few weeks ago. It’s been sitting around until I had time to post it. I have this mental order of how I like to space out my videos…I try to switch off between makeup tutorials and reviews/non-makeup videos. If there’s a collection release…all my videos halt so I can make sure to get collection hauls and tutorials out quick.

This is a look using hepcat e/s from MAC, a very popular color. I’ve seen various looks pairing it with purple, pink…but I decided to try something a little different. I used it with browns and satin taupe. Ordinarily I would have probably put a light cream color on the inside ¼ of the outlid and the brighter hepcat color on the outer ½…just because that’s what the usual basic technique is…however, I wanted to mix it up and put the brighter color on the inside. I saw someone do it on specktra before where they put parrot e/s on the inner ½ and satin taupe e/s on the outer ½….it was hot! I like trying new makeup techniques to mix it up and expand my abilities.

I think the look I created is soft enough for those who like more subtle looks but bold enough for those who like eye popping creations. It kinda reminded me of an Arabic look with the browns and plums.

Hope you guys enjoy!

omg i love desire on you! i wanted the l/s and gloss. seeing as though it's kind of a fantasy lip for me (wearing it only when i'm being bold and daring... hardly) i'd wear it, so i never splurged to make the purchase. thanks for sharing!!
