How to Get My C-Shock Look!

With all the excitement over the newest MAC Collection, C-Shock, I could not wait to get my hands on it. When it arrived, I must say I was a bit in shock, as the products were even more colorful than in the photos.

But color is good. And these C-Shock colors are so easy to mix, and match, brush and blend, and blend, and blend! I am having so much fun.

Onto my favorite eye look that I created this afternoon!

For this look I used MAC Eyeshadow in Big T and Romping, both from the C-Shock Collection; Whistle (from the Barbie Collection), and Pro Lash Mascara in Coal Black.

I started by lining my eyes with Big T, the most beautiful aqua color. I lined the top completely, while only about 3/4 of the way around my eye on the bottom. Next, I blended Big T all over my eyelid. I used very little on the inner corner, and added more as I went outward. I then took Romping, what looks to be a very bright fuchsia, but is actually the prettiest perfect popping pink. I used this in my crease, extending that outward and upward a bit into the outer corner. Now, I used a larger fluffy shadow brush to apply Whistle to my brow bone, and in the inner corner. I finished with a coat of Pro Lash, and Voila!

My husband even complimented on how pretty my eyes looked.

I forgot to get a photo of my lips, but my eye look was beautifully complimented with Out to Shock for my lipstick, and going over that with Sugar Shock Lipgelee. An alternate look, which really brought out the pink on my eyes was using Pomposity as my lipstick with Mega Lipgelee on top.

If I can pull off this collection, anyone can. And a word of advice, do not be afraid of color, especially when it comes from MAC. They are the ones who constantly get it right!

I have a feeling that this new line is going to explode! I love the colors for summer but can't wait to see if they crossover to fall and winter. If they can brin gout vibrance without looking too heavy, millions will be hooked!

I believe you are right. I do not see how it can't help but explode.

The C-Shock colors can easily scare conservative consumers off, but the look you created is understated and gorgeous! Thanks for sharing your tip with yet another beauty-obsessed Mom!
