Lorde for Mac Pure Heroine

Every time the song Royals comes on the radio on of my alter ego's comes out and suddenly I'm a performer. Those around me are probably not thrilled with this since I lack singing skills, but whatever.

I'm singing as I type this; 

“and we’ll never be royals.  It don’t run in our blood, that kind of luxe just ain’t for us.  We crave a different kind of buzz.”

I'm still working on becoming more comfortable with bold lip colors, I'm a neutral girl at heart. When I saw Mac was releasing a Lorde version of the fan favorite Heroine shade, I knew I had to have it. 
Mac Lorde Pure Heroine Lipstick
Pure Heroine is a deep plum lipstick with an amplified finish. Color payoff is excellent and the creamy formula won't dry your lips.

You can wear this shade many ways, try adding a darker liner or even a lighter gloss to it.

Project Runway & Mary Kay Season 13

Throughout this season on Project Runway on Lifetime, a new group of up-and-coming designers will finish their runway looks in the Mary Kay Color Design Studio. Mary Kay Global Makeup Artist Luis Casco shows us how to translate chic, fall-inspired, jewel-toned smoky eyes and bold dark lips from the runway to everyday. Stay tuned to the blog to see how I do at recreating the look and enter to win the product used.
See below for the product breakdown for this look. 
Mary Kay Global Makeup Artist Luis Casco shows us fall-inspired, jewel-toned smoky eyes and bold dark lips.
For high-impact, wearable color, layer three shades of green eye color over a cream eye color base.
·         Apply Mary Kay® Cream Eye Color in Meadow Grass as a base and sweep Mary Kay® Mineral Eye Color in Emerald on the outer halves of eyelids to enhance the color.
·         Brighten eyes by layering Mary Kay® Mineral Eye Color in Lime onto the inner thirds of eyelids.
·         To add drama, apply Mary Kay® Eyeliner in Black along the top and bottom lash lines, blending outwards toward the corners of the eyes.
·         Generously apply Mary Kay® Lash Love® Lengthening™ Mascara in Black to the top and bottom lashes.
·         TIP: Use Mary Kay® Facial Highlighting Pen on the brow bone for a brightening effect!

Balance bright green smoky eyes with well-defined dark lips. 
·         To perfect your unique lip shape, use Mary Kay® Lip Liner in Cappuccino before and after applying lipstick!
·         Use Mary Kay® True Dimensions Lipstick in Mystic Plum directly from the tube for best results.
·         TIP: Use a cream eye shadow brush dipped in a little foundation to clean up the edges of your lips.

When sporting bold eyes and lips, keep the rest of your makeup simple.
·         Use your fingertips or a clean Mary Kay® Liquid Foundation Brush to blend Mary Kay® Cream Blush in Cranberry on the apples of cheeks.
·         TIP: For the perfect fall shade, blend the blush with a tiny bit of foundation to let the color’s intensity build!

There were great looks in this week's episode, I can't wait to see what else this season brings.  Will you be tuning in?
