Spiced Chocolate Tutorial

Hi Bellas,

How was your weekend? Mine was pretty good. I took an Abs class on Saturday and I'm still super sore. I've been getting ready for my trip to Costa Rica and i'm excited! I still had time on Friday to do a mini Ulta haul too, lol.

This weekend I filmed 5 makeup videos! I like building up a reserve of videos so I don't need to do them every night. One of the videos was the requested tutorial for the Spiced Chocolate quad from the Cult of Cherry collection. I liked how this look came out. Very pretty for the fall. I ended up using all the colors but saved the dark brown in the palette strictly for my eyebrows.

I hope you enjoy!



Here's What I Used (All MAC unless otherwise stated):

EYES
-hush creme color base
-spiced chocolate quad: nanogold e/s, brash e/s, sweet chesnut e/s, spiced chocolate e/s

Yeah please do tell about that MUFE foundation. From just looking at you, it goes on even better than MAC and looks more fresh and clean. I love how it looks on you. I am tempted to pick it up. Did you get it at Sephora?

I love this look! I wasn't sure about buying this Mac e/s collection, but now I am seriously tempted. I adore the look when you eyes are opened. It does look beautiful, but once you close your eyes - it's just wow. Spec-f**k-tacular!

ashleync said...

Great tutorial Ren! I'm looking forward to getting the CoC collection this weekend. I'm new to MAC and I don't have any dupes for the quads, so i'm excited about the colors. Anyways, I was wondering if there are any freestanding stores in Atlanta? I searched for store locations on the MAC website, but all of the listings looked like they were just MAC counters in other stores. Can you tell me if there are any freestanding stores where I can get the eyeshadow palettes in the Atlanta area?

Livia said...
