My MAC Manish Arora Dupeable Look: A-Design Brushes FOTD

Hi Bellas,

Yay it's Friday! This week went by really fast, woo hoo! Did you guys peep the holiday palettes and brush sets yesterday? I didn't! I decided to exert some self control. To be honest, nothing in the holiday collection is making me pee in my pants with excitement, so I wanted to hold off until my makeup budget refreshes next week. If by that time I still want something despite the newness wearing off, I'll go get it. Talk about exerting self control right? The deluge of collections has put a dent in my wallet that I need to recover from. I also have a million videos I need to post so my self-restraint cuts out another video to film..which is good for me!

Last night, I stayed up to 3:30am! It's my boyfriend's big homecoming weekend (he went to Morehouse) so all his homies are in town to celebrate. He already graduated but this is a yearly reunion that they too. Of course I'm not invited, lol, so instead I stayed up playing with makeup! I'm posting a new Halloween makeup look tomorrow which has proved to be quite challenging! Stay tuned for the video :)

Anywho, back to the original entry!

Like many, I missed out on the Manish Arora collection because it sold out so quickly! For some reason I thought it was coming to stores, but I was clearly confused. It's actually a good thing though, becuase I got to save some cash! I decided to recreate the look using products I already reality, the packaging is what sold me on this collection. A lot of the colors are permanent line or very dupeable.

Here's my recreated look. You know blues and greens are my fav!

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

-MUFE HD foundation mixed with Smashbox Tinted Moisturizer (to make it darker...i'm going back for #153 eventually...because I'm pretty sure that's my actual color)
-select moisture concealer NW35
-Camera Ready Cosmetics orange blush (dupe for devil, even a MAC artist told me so)
-Elf warm tan bronzer

-soft ochre paint pot
-nylon e/s (highlight)
-clarity e/s (dupe for electric eel)
-deep truth e/s
-lime e/s (dupe for bitter)
-gorgeous gold
-blacktrack fluid line
-model co lashes
-smashbox mascara

-lychee luxe lipglass (dupe for shine manish lipglass)
Any big plans this weekend? Going to any Halloween parties? Hopefully it's not rainy and cold where you are...cuz it sure is here in Atlanta!
Till next time, Ciao Bellas!
