Sorority Show Makeup - Platinum Eyes and Diva Lips!

Hi Bellas,

Happy Monday!  Last week was super busy for me and today i'm going to show you why.  In college, along with 11 other ladies, I helped to establish a chapter of my sorority at my University.  Ten years later, i'm still involved.  After a few years of having no presence on campus, 8 lovely ladies helped to reestablish the chapter at my alma mater, and this called for a celebration!  Over the last week, we spent several long nights into the early morning practicing for their coming out show and you know I had to do a special makeover for the ladies.  Check it out!

My sorority is Lambda Theta Alpha, Latin Sorority Incorporated.  My chapter has a very diverse membership of over 20 cultures, which is one of the reasons why I joined.  Our sorority colors are burgundy and gray and my chapter is known as the Glamorous Gamma Nu.  So you know I had to pull out the brushes and paint some faces!
I only had 2 hours to makeover 8 girls, yikes!  I kept it simple with a silver smokey eye and burgundy lips.  On the eyes I used MAC Platinum pigment.  It has a highly metallic finish and is super pigmented - this means fast application without having to pack on color.  It also really stands out at night and the show was being performed outside with low light.
Fortunately I have tons of dark lippes from the fall when vampy lips were in.  I lined lips with a dark wine colored pencil - Black Opal's Plumberry.  Then I filled in the lips with MAC Diva Lipstick.
When you have a dark lip you have to add color to the skin.  I made sure to bronze/contour with my MAC Sculpting Powders and added Kevyn Aucoin Neolita blush to give color to the cheeks.


Here are some pics of the girls:

Hope you guys enjoyed and got a personal look into my social life outside of my blog.  Till next time, Ciao Bellas!
