A Look For Going Out Featuring MAC Rebel

MAC's MAC Me Over collection came out awhile ago and there were four lipsticks that caught my eye: Runway Red, Prince Noir, Smoked Purple, and Rebel. These all looked like great colours for fall and I was drooling over them when I realized something.......I got Rebel months ago when I Back 2 MAC-ed a bunch of old foundation bottles! SWEET! Then I realized I even had a look I did with it in my blogging pictures folder! DOUBLE SWEET! Since I am planning to go and Back 2 MAC for one of the other lovely shades I just mentioned later on, I thought today would be a great day to post this look! I can't believe I forgot about it......perhaps I should tone it down on the makeup purchases. Anyway, this is a look I did for going out with some friends from my home city before I moved.

FACE: MAC Prep and Prime, MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation in NC15, MAC Select Sheer Pressed Powder in NC15.

BROWS: MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Stud.

CHEEKS: MAC Mineralize Blush in Two Virtues....another thing I bought and kind of forgot about!

LIPS: MAC lipstick in Rebel.

EYES: Base - UDPP and MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre.
Eyeshadows -All from Sleek Sparkle Palette
Inner Corner: Gold Ribbon with gold glitter on top from the NYX glitter cream palette in Royal Violets.
Inner Lid - Star Light
Outer Lid - Glitz & Glamour
Crease and Outer V- Noir
Upper Crease - Cranberry
Between Liner Wings - Cranberry blended into Gold Ribbon

Upper Lashline and Wings - Maybelline Black Liquid Eyeliner
Lower Lashline - UD 24/7 Glide On Pencil in Oil Slick

Lashes - Maybelline The Falsies Flared Mascara



I really adore this colour. I find that pink lipsticks attract me because I love pink but they never seem to be particularly flattering on me. I think this one actually goes rather well with my colouring and skintone.




My Outfit:
Dress (which is too short/too small/too low cut for me but I'm wearing it ANYWAY): ONLY
Faux Leather Jacket: ONLY
Tube Top (under dress to prevent excessive cleavage): American Apparel
Shoes: Le Chateau
Fishnet Stockings: Walmart
Waist Belt: Le Chateau
Necklace: Le Chateau
Watch/Bracelet: Nixon

I'll leave you with a very "special" picture of myself that I found whilst going through these photos:

This IS mah smile!

Have a "special" day!


  1. MAC Rebel, you must be mine. As for the eye makeup... Wow, just wow. So pretty! Love the double-wing thing!

  2. Hahaha, I love the last picture! You do look "special"! ;-) Red and black look so amazing together. Rebel looks great on you, too!

  3. I love the double wing and that waist belt is awesome, can't believe it's from Le Chateau! The time I went in there all the 'satin' scared the cruuuup out of me.

    Rebel looks way pinker than I thought it would, suits you to a t though!
