I can’t believe it’s been so long since I last typed up a post for you guys, but instead of trying to justify my wrongdoings, let’s just start fresh. New year, new beginnings, ey?

I’ll throw the ropes and bust the bottle on my new website by introducing a new beauty series to you all: The Make-up Recap. It’s pretty much the same as the good ole FOTD’s, but without too much of a fuss and briefing around it, just a simple product rundown by yours truly. A literal recap slash summary of all the products I used to create that specific make-up look. Tutorials will be coming in a different format, too, as will reviews and current favorites. But enough formal jabber, let’s get on with the first post of 2015 and of the new and improved Beauty Of Eden!



Serum: MAC Lightful Marine-Bright Formula Essence/Serum
Moisturizer: CHANEL Hydramax + Active Gel Cream


Corrector: Bobbi Brown Corrector in Light Bisque
Concealer: NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla + Chantilly (for highlighting purposes)
Foundation: MAC Pro Longwear SPF 10 Foundation in NW13 + Make Up For Ever MAT Velvet+ Matifying Foundation in #15
Powder: MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Light


Blush: MAC Extra Dimension Blush in At Dusk + MAC Desert Rose
Highlighter: Physicians Formula Happy Booster Translucent Powder


Eyebrows: MAC Fluidline Brow Gelcreme in Dirty Blonde + MAC Omega + MAC Mystery
Base: MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Painterly
Lid: Urban Decay Strange + MAC Haux + MAC Fig. 1
– Outer V: MAC Indian Ink
– Inner Tearduct: MAC Gesso
Crease: MAC Haux + Urban Decay Limit
Lower Lashline: MAC Haux + MAC Fig. 1
Browbone: MAC Blanc Type + MAC Gesso

Extra: As you can see, I went for an outer V focused smokey eye look, working with an obvious gradience from light to darker. Draw a line with some concealer or, in my case, with a lighter powder (I used my trusted MAC Blanc Type) from your lower lashline, straight upwards towards the end of your eyebrows, basically. This will give you a more clear guideline when creating such a look. Just always blend inwards when working with a defined outer V. I used a MAC 239 for applying the shades, a 217 for blending and a steady hand. I also used the Real Techniques Deluxe Crease Brush for blending the crease colors and my browbone highlight. It’s honestly a foolproof blending tool.

Liner: MAC Phlox Garden + MAC Indian Ink
Mascara: Yves Saint Laurent Volume Effet Faux Cils Babydoll in 4


Lipstick: MAC Snob
Lip Pencil: MAC Whirl

Extra: I applied Snob first with a MAC 231 and then lined the lips with Whirl, slightly overdrawing on the top. I also outlined the edges with MAC Blanc Type using a MAC 212 liner brush for more defined, crisp looking lips.


To finish it all off, I spritzed some Skindinavia The Makeup Finishing Spray all over my face to set my make-up and make any overpowdering settle into the skin seamlessly.
