MAC Wonder Woman Collection

Release Dates:
US February 10, 2011; International March ?, 2011

MAC and DC Comic's are teaming up to bring my favorite super hero to our vanities and MAC collections...*booming announcer voice* "the one, the only Wonder Woman!" The collection is set to release Feb. 10 in the US and March ?, 2011 international.

After searching and waiting for what seems like an eternity I've finally found a color story for this collection. I am pretty impressed with the collection as a whole.

I think that MAC and DC comics did an awesome job with the packaging. I do get a retro vibe from the design, which I think is to be expected since WW is originally from that era. The packaging is still in a comic-ish design, but not so immature that you would be embarrassed to pull it out of your purse in front of people. I think it would actually be a great conversation starter, people would definitely ask about it. Also, it looks like we are going to get mirrors in our blushes and MSF compacts, which is another great thing. I will be getting one of the blush duos and depotting the blush so that I can use different blushes in it. This is also a pretty colorful collection which I think is nice change.

Although, I am a little disappointed that they are promoting the regular line Russian Red lipstick as Wonder Woman's red lipstick. I just expected more out of this single product since it is pretty much WW's signature makeup product. When I think of WW I automatically think of that beautiful shade of red lipstick. Russian Red is a pretty enough shade but, I was expecting an extraordinary shade, and I was hoping it would be a lustre shade. However, they brought it home with the red gloss/ Wonder Woman. It's absolutely gorgeous!! Also, the Lady Justice/ blue eyeshadow palette is a let down as well. There definitely needed to be a blue eyeshadow palette, but I'm so dang sick of Deep Truth. It seems every time MAC releases a blue toned palette they throw Deep Truth in it. It will be a pass for me just because I have 2 Deep Truth eyeshadows already. But, on a good note, they are repromoting Marquise D' lipstick which is a lovely nude toned lustre shade that was last released with Blonde Brunette Redhead. I can't wait to get it.

My wish list for this collection is:
Marquise D' Lipstick
Athena's Kiss Lipgloss
Valiant (Green) Eyeshadow Quad
Mighty Aphrodite Blush Duo
Pink Power MSF
Golden Lariat MSF

My favorite eye look ever! Mila Kunis 2008 VH1 Rock Honor Awards

I know that this is quite an old picture of Mila Kunis, but this is my all time favorite eye look. I think that this is a great basic look, not too bold, but still sultry and beautiful. This is a look that you can use the same techniques and just change up the eye shadow shades, and it would look fantastic. In every picture I've seen of Mila her makeup is gorgeous. Since I love this one so much I thought that I would do a written tutorial for everyone to get an idea of how to do it. I know that a written tutorial can be a little hard to follow, but I really am not into doing videos at all. So, I hope you like it, and if you have any questions please just ask I will be happy to explain it more or answer any questions you may have. Give it a try and add your own twist to it to make the look your own. Have fun! Happy 2011 to all of my gorgeous girls all around the world!

Things You Will Need:

Urban Decay- Primer Potion or any eye shadow primer
Wet n' Wild- Nutty Eye Shadow Single
Wet n' Wild- Knock On Wood Eye Shadow Trio (3rd shade on bottom) or MAC Cranberry Eye Shadow
MAC- Shale Eye Shadow
MAC- Satin Taupe Eye Shadow
Make Up For Ever- Aqua Eye Pencil in Black
L'oreal- Voluminous Mascara
Mark Bronze Pro Bronzing Powder or any matte bronzer
MAC- So Ceylon MSF or any bronze/rose toned blush
Rimmel- Moisture Renew Lipstick in Summer Angel
Sigma 224 Brush
MAC 239 Brush
MAC 272 Brush
Sigma 217 Brush
Sigma 212 Brush
Sigma 214 Brush

1. Prep lid and lower lash line with eye shadow primer (UD Primer Potion).

2. 224- Apply MAC Cranberry or (Wet n' Wild Knock on Wood Trio 3rd shade on bottom) on the outer 3/4 of crease and on brow bone using circular motions. Don't go all the way up to the eye brow.

3. 239- Apply Wet n' Wild Nutty Eye Shadow mixed with MAC Shale Eye Shadow all over inner 3/4 of lid up to the crease, where the Cranberry shade begins. Dip your brush into the Shale shadow first, then into the Nutty shadow.

4. 272- Apply MAC Satin Taupe on the outer 1/4 of lid (outer V) and blend slightly into the crease.

5. 217- Blend out any harsh lines

6. 217- Apply Wet n' Wild Nutty mixed  with MAC Shale on lower lash line.

7. 219- Apply MAC Satin Taupe on lower lash line on top of Shale & Nutty.

8. Using MUFE Aqua Eyes Pencil Eye Liner- Tight line the upper water line, line lower water line, and line
very thinly on the outer 3/4 of the upper lash line.

9. 214- Smudge the line on the upper lash line using back and forth motions until the line has almost disappeared.

10. 212- Use this to drag some of the liner that is on the lower water line in between the lashes. You're just doing this to blend the harsh line out a bit. You don't want to line the lower lash line and you don't want to remove it all off of the lower water line. You just want to blend it into the lower lashes a bit. Doing it this way helps to achieve a smokey look.

11. Apply 2 coats of L'oreal Voluminous Mascara

12. 109- Use a matte bronzer to contour cheek bones. I used Mark by Avon

13. 168- Apply MAC So Ceylon Mineralize Skinfinish on the apples of the cheeks. Any bronzey rose blush will do the trick if you don't have So Ceylon.

14. Apply Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Summer Angel or any frosty nude pinkish shade.

Voala!! You're all done! Beautiful!
