I’ve been holding onto a sample of MAC Pigment in “Fuchsia” for a couple months now. I usually avoid bright pink and purple eye shadows from MAC, because some people (including myself) are sensitive to red pigment and certain ingredients. So I’ve been hesitant to try this particular pigment, but now I’m glad I did — I didn’t experience any irritation. Here’s my first look using this vivid pink pigment.
- MAC Paint Pot in “Soft Ochre” (entire lid)
- MAC Pro E/S in “Bright Sunshine” (inner third of lid — inner corner, tear duct, and also inner lower lash line)
- MAC E/S in “Swish” (center lid and crease, as well as center lower lash line)
- MAC Pigment in “Fuchsia” (apply wet on outer V using a sponge-tipped applicator and MAC Pro Water Base Mixing Medium — click here to see how to make your own homemade mixing medium; blend outwards toward end of eye brows for a more dramatic look)
- MAC E/S in “Blanc Type” (highlight)
- Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in “Black Ink” (upper lash line)
- Lancome Oscillating Mascara (top and bottom lashes)
- TEMPTU AIR pod Limited Edition Summer Glam Blush in “405 Vintage Ruby” (on apples)
- TEMPTU AIR pod Limited Edition Summer Glow Highlighter in “305 Pink Pearl” (upper half of apples and up towards temples)
- MAC L/S in “Please Me”
The only other bright pink/purple colors that I’m not allergic to are the ones in the Coastal Scents palette (and it’s the cheapest one too!). Make sure to test any new makeup you want to use on a small area of your wrist for a few hours just to be safe!
