Sunday Stash Shopping #75: Brown and Pink

MAC paint pot in Constructivist is one of their cream shadows that I missed terribly. The one used here was just recently purchased a couple of months ago and I’m glad I repurchased it. My old one dried up after a little more than 2 years, and truth be told, I’d gladly buy this again after it dries out 2 years later. It’s a beautiful dark rusty brown that just looks good. It serves as a dark base as well and it doesn’t crease on my unprimed lids. For this FOTD, I layered a powder shadow on top, and it’s Clinique’s Lid Pop in Cocoa Pop. I also used this on my lower lash line for a subtle haze.

I’ve always loved pairing brown eyes with pink cheeks and lips. Of course, I could have paired it with something warm as well, but I wanted to use the beautiful pink Dior My Lady blush. Before applying the blush on the apple of my cheeks, I first warmed up my face with the Dior bronzer. This ties the look together and gives more dimension to my face which looked a little pale from the foundation. Bobbi Brown’s art stick in Dusty Pink, a warm pink which looks great on yellow and olive skin tone, completes the look.

What do you think? I hope you enjoyed today’s look!

  • Aww this is a really pretty, natural look!

    • Lily

      Thank you MizzJ!

  • Lilian

    Love the eye look Lily!

    • Lily

      Thank you Lilian 🙂

  • I think it looks gorgeous! I have only had a few LE Paint Pots in the past that were so pretty that I tried not to use all up, some time later they dried out so bad that I can’t use them anymore!

    • Lily

      LOL Agata. I think we’ve all done that before. We’ll keep it because it’s precious, but it’ll go bad and we won’t be able to use it anymore. So, I’ve learned my lesson. Just use the damn thing, and enjoy!

  • Alison

    Very pretty!! Perfect neutral look for people with our coloring.

    • Lily

      Thank you Alison.

  • I used to have constructivist (threw it out when it became dry) and I really love the colour but alas it creases a lot on me whether I use a primer or not, so I didnt repurchase. I used to do a look just like this one with it! xx
    (Great minds think alike)

    • Lily

      I think we do think alike in many cases! I’m glad this doesn’t crease on my lids. I have a Charlotte Tilbury one, and OMG, I’m so sad. It creases and fades like crazy and I bought a lighter shade so it’s not so obvious in case this happened. All the raves on the internet. LIES!

  • What a lovely combo! The brown eyes and pink lips go so well together.

    • Lily

      Don’t they? I like that the pink brightens up the look making it more youthful.

  • That is a beautiful combo, Lily! I haven’t been wearing much eyeshadows recently except to highlight my crease, for some reason I have been super lazy experimenting with makeup recently.

    • Lily

      Thanks Shireen. I think we all go through a phase of just not wanting to wear makeup. I still get lazy sometimes, but I’m making an effort to put on makeup every time I go out. Otherwise, none of my things will get used!

  • I really love this look, Lily! I’ve been wearing lots of browns on the lids with a bit of shimmer lately too… sounds abit boring for me, but I needed a change to just not have to think about eyeshadows.

    • Lily

      I love brown eye shadows. I’m boring like that! All sorts of different browns – red browns, bronze browns, gold browns, cool browns, gimme all!
