Makeup Look: MAC Expensive Pink, Club and Nylon


I am still obsessed with my MAC palette and I try to create a nice variety of looks, instead of going for the same brown smoky eye every single day :) Obviously, there is nothing wrong with that,  but I simply want to get a lot of use out of all the individual eye shadows I picked for my palette. My favourite look so far must be the combination of Expensive Pink with Club and Nylon. I must admit, I wore it more than once, because it really suits my eye colour.

To create this look, I primed my eyelids with Urban Decay Primer Potion and applied Nylon in the inner corners and added Expensive Pink allover the lid. In the crease, I used Club and as you can see, on this occasion it looks like a brown shade. That's the amazing thing about Club - it changes colour, depending on the shades you use it with, because it has hues of green, brown and grey. I smoked Club out with a little bit of Expensive Pink and added Nylon under the brow bone, as a highlight. On the lower lash line, I  used Expensive Pink closer to the inner corner and Club in the outer corner. As usual, I added black liquid liner and decided to go for long Eldora falsies on the top lash line and two individual bunches of medium length lashes on the bottom lash line. Et voila :)

The rest of my makeup consists of: MAC Studio Fix Fluid, Guerlain Tan Enhancing Terracotta Bronzer, Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders in Luminous Light and Dim Light, Bourjois Happy Light Concealer,  Rimmel Apocalips in Big Bang.

I am obsessed with this look and Expensive Pink became one of my favourite eye shadows. You can see the swatches of it and a quick review here.

  2. I've been looking for a way to pull off a more pinky eye shade and this is perfect. I especially love those false lashes. Can you do a tutorial on how to apply them? I can never get the inner corners to stay down.

    1. If you use a good glue (my favourite is the one that comes with Eldora lashes) and light lashes with a flexible strip, the inner corner will stay down. The best thing to do is to trim the lashes a bit, so the strip is shorter. I have to trim all falsies to make them fit my eye. If the strip doesn't go past your iris, they will definitely stay in place all day and feel very comfortable on :) Let me know, if it works for you :)

  5. Expensive pink is such a nice colour, I think I have it but never reach for it. Like you I always stick to a smoky brown most of the time! xo
