I think MAC Haux  is my new favorite color….I have used it so much in the past couple of days in a variety of different ways and it just looks so stunning.  I think it is because it is a great in between color….it is not too pink, not too purple and not too brown…it is kind of a great mix of all three!  I have to say that I love, love, love this look and I think that it is a great look for a “romantic” bride that wants to keep it more natural looking…as well as a wonderful option for those of you looking to branch out from your creams and browns. This is such an easy eye look with very little “risk” for messing up because the colors are all pretty light!!

Products Used:

MAC Eyeshadows in “Crystal Avlanche”,”Yogurt”, “Pink Venus” and”Haux”, MA Paint Pot in “Soft Ochre”, Maybelline Eyestudio Gel Liner in “Blackest Black”, MAC Lipstick in “Creme Cup” and “Plumful” (not pictured)

PREP:

Apply concealer to the entire lid up to the brow, all around the eye and underneath the eye.  Set with powder.  Apply your primer, I used MAC’s Paint Pot in “Soft Ochre”.

Step 1:

Using your big fluffy, apply “Yogurt” to the entire front half of the lid.  Then, apply “Pink Venus” to the outer half of the eyelid…stopping right at the brow bone.  It should look something like this:

Step 2:

Using your bullet brush, apply “Haux” to the crease and outer V.  Drag that color down into the lower lash line.  It should look something like this:

Step 3:

Using your big fluffy (or a more stiff fluffy as I did) blend, blend, blend that “Haux” into the “Pink Venus”.  Using a stiff brush, apply your highlight color from your brow bone down into the crease, blend it out a bit with your big fluffy.  Apply your fake eyelashes. Go over any excess glue with gel liner.  Apply gel liner to your waterline.  Your final product should look something like this:

and this:

Isn’t it a nice soft look??  I just think “Haux” makes the look because it doesn’t add too much purple!   These lashes are pretty crazy…but I loooove them :)  For my lips, I mixed some “Creme Cup” with “Plumful” to get a nice pink with a touch of purple.  Hope you enjoyed!
