FOTD from the Weekend & The Dupe of Mac Other Worldly Blush

Here's an FOTD from the past weekend. It's been a very long time since I actually had put on "full makeup". Most times I would just run out of the house with just some eyeliner and some lipgloss on. I finally got the chance to do the "full makeup look" during this so I'm pretty rusty and I'm just trying to get back into the game. YAY! =D This look probably looks like an old fotd of mines I'm also wearing the NEW....Purple Rite Lipstick from Style Warriors Collection. I thought I would never wear frost finish lipsticks but this one is GORGEOUS!

What I used:

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel
MUFE #6 Primer
MUFE #153 HD Foundation
Mac Select Coverup Concealer - NW 35 & MUFE #10 Full Cover Concealer
Mac Mineralize SkinFinish Natural - Medium Dark
Covergirl Loose Powder - Translucent Medium
Mac Espresso Eyeshadow (Eyebrows)

Two Faced Shadow Insurance (Eye Primer)
Mac Cashflow Paintpot - Eye Base (WOW! Such a pretty colour....I can wear this alone)
Mac Naked Pigment (On Lid)
Mac Nocturnelle Eyeshadow (Crease)
Mac Sketch Eyeshadow (Darken Crease/Outer V)
Mac Pink Venus Eyeshadow (Above the crease)
Mac Solar White Eyeshadow (Highlight)
Mac Parrot Eyeshadow (Bottom Lashline)
Mac Blacktrack Fluidline
Urban Decay - Zero Eyeliner Pencil (Black)
Maybelline Great Lash Clear Mascara
Loreal Telescopic Mascara
Ardel Wispies Lashes

Mac Refined Golden Bronzer (Contour as well)
Mac Stark Naked Blush
Mac Trace Gold Blush (To Highlight the Apples of my Cheeks) =D

Mac Purple Rite Lipstick (Style Warriors)
(Hope this helps you out Janet!)

A friend from the U.S was able to hook me up with Mac's Hollywood Nights Lipstick from her CCO. What a HOT PINK LIPSTICK! I can't believe I missed it during the release of the Heatherette Collection. Anyways...I took some pics with this lippie on with Mac Magenta lipliner pencil. =D


A Frequent Question:

What is the closest dupe for Mac's Other Worldly Blush since it was limited edition?

Mac's Trace Gold blush is the closest in shade and texture. Yes! You can easily find it at any Mac counter/store since it's in their permanent line.

You can also try MSFs like New Vegas (contains glitter), Warmed and others to achieve the golden glow. However, Trace Gold blush makes a great alternative as it isn't glittery or too metallic and it contains just the right amount of shimmer for those apples of your cheeks. It's a gorgeous golden highlight. You can even wear it alone to give those cheeks a warm, subtle bronzy look. (I have it on in the FOTD above)

Mac Trace Gold Blush Vs. Mac Other Worldly Blush
(Pro Pan) - (Pot)

Other Worldly blush seems more metallic and you don't need too much of it. With Trace Gold blush you can apply it and build up the bronzy glow to what you like. If you don't like MSFs because of the glitter....Go ahead and try Mac Trace Gold Blush! =D
