MAC Photorealism Quad Tutorial - Smokey Green Eyes

Hi Bellas,

Here is a look I did using the MAC Photorealism Quad from the recent MAC Makeup Artist Cosmetics Collection. It’s a gorgeous smokey green eye with a gorgeous berry lip. Perfect for the fall!



I tried to do a slightly different take on the this smokey eye. Usually I do a transition between light to dark starting on the inside of my lid and then moving out. This time, I darkened both the outer and inner edges and kept the middle light for a pop of color.

Check out my video tutorial!


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

FACE
-Graftobian powder foundation
-summer rose beauty powder

EYES
-Steelo eyeshadow base in medium
-photorealism quad
-vanilla e/s
-graphblack technakohl
-Ardell lashes
-NYX mascara
-Rimmel brow pencil in hazel

LIPS
-on display lipglass

Pics!






Stay tuned for tomorrow's Sigma Makeup Brushes Giveaway!
