Arabic butterfly

Hi everyone!

I've got some request to my email to do an arabic makeup based on dress fabrics.
Unfortunately I can't post pics of the dress, but the main colors are orange, red and green.

So I was asked to do an arabic look with red, green and orange.
I coudn't use what ever brands I wanted, since they only have limited amount of colors, and I wanted to create the look they could achieve with their shadows.
They had MAC Green Brown, MAC Rose, MAC Blue Brown and MAC Ruby Red, so I tried to make the look with them.
Unfortunately I don't have Ruby Red or Rose, so I had to improvise a bit, and I mixed my own red shade using MSCHIC, MAC, Mineralissima and PureLuxe shadows. And I guess PureLuxe Charisma is quite close dupe of MAC Rose, so I used that instead.

But anyway, I'm actually superhyper satisfied with the look!

I know it's quite selfishly said, but I think this is ALMOST flawless! I only wish I would have blended the red bit better, but otherwise I love this look.

But enough babble, the pictures!










MSCHIC Eyeshadow Base
UD Half Baked (inner corner)
UD Homegrown & MAC Green Brown (middle of the lid)
UD Perversion & UD Misdemeanor (outer corner)
MAC Blue Brown (crease)
Red eyeshaow (my own mix) (above crease)
MSCHIC White Gold (highlight)
NYX Jumbo pencil Milk (white parts at lower lashline)
MSCHIC Sumi-e eye stain
MSCHIC 3D mascara
Grimas false lashes


MSCHIC Face Canvas (I totally love this stuff, I think it's better than Smashbox's Photofinish!)
MSCHIC Easy Stick foundation
MSCHIC Baked Mineral Foundation (Another Holy Grail for me, absolutely amazing product!)
MSCHIC Shading Powder & Hilighter Powder
MSCHIC Babysitter blush

MSCHIC Eyeshadow primer (yes, you can use it on lips too!)
Gosh Darling lipstick
NYX brown lip liner

Then I wanna say a thing or two about my skin.

You maybe notice the amount of MSCHIC products in my skin makeup list. I wanna show you why.

Here's my skin without makeup:

There's bumbs, pores, color is uneven... 

Here's my skin when I used Smashbox photofinish, Revlon Colorstay and MAC Mineralize Skinfinish:
 Nice, but not perfect at all.
And here's my skin today, using MSCHIC products (and absolutely no photoshopping, 'cos that would pretty much ruin the whole point):

I guess I don't need to explain anything, right?

Oh, and I forgot to tell you that I ordered Trucco Angel Eyes -palette from ebay:

Check out the swatches from Pursebuzz! I think I'll love it, when it arrives <3

But yeah, that's all this time!

    Thank you for the link! From what I can decipher for the baked foundation, the ingredients look pretty good.

  7. Phyrra, they are working to get the texts in english too, but basicly there's nothing superspecial in descriptions :D It's just what it is and how to use it :3
    But luckily INCI's are in english (or the universal language of SCIENCE :P)

  8. Hooray for science :P
