My Go-To Special Occasion Look

Why is it that when I am going to a special occasion I am always running short on time? It happens to me more often than not and when it does, I always stick to the same neutral eye look:

What I used (all MAC):

Arena shadow on the entire lid
Texture shadow on the outer lid and in the crease
Bronze and Embark shadows in the crease
Blacktrack Fluidline on the upper lash line and in the water line
Feline Kohl Power pencil in the waterline

I took these pics prematurely, as I did add a bit of texture and Embark to the lower lash line to smoke it out and make the black in the waterline less harsh. I wore this look to one of the wedding events I attended last weekend and since I was short on time I didn't get a chance to take more makeup pics. I did do a few colorful eye looks for some of the other wedding events, but again, since I kept running late, I didn't get a chance to photograph them.


  1. this is pretty love the colors. your lashes look great what mascara are u wearing

  2. Gorgeous eye make-up. It's great to have a signature look for a special occasion as nothing worse than trying out something new for the first time and not liking it! x

  3. Wow. Lovely look. You have very pretty lashes

  4. @KayKay Thanks! I used the MAC lash primer followed by Make Up Forever Smoky Aqua Lash.

    @LilyLipstick Thank you dear! I know how risky it can be to try something new when you have somewhere nice to go.

    @Nivedita Thanks so much! =)

  5. Very pretty!It's always nice to have a signature looks when you're short on time. I have made the mistake of trying a new look when I am short on time - I saw pictures after and really hated it.

  6. Great look, I can see it working for many different occasions!!!
