MAC McQueen Inspired Look using 88 e/s CS palette and drugstore brand items

I entered Jinah Chae's contest with the MAC McQueen Look that was inspired by Stephie. She's one of my most favorite YT makeup gurus/ beauty blogger. I wish she'd continue making more.
Click here to see her video of the look I was trying to replicate. Here's is what mine turned out to look like.

( I hate taking whole face pictures because I don't have the best complexion and I like my eyes better than anything else on my face. )

Use this picture as a guide. Click to enlarge.

I miss Stephie too :( Don't say such foolish things about your makeup work, I think you do a great job :) I especially love the model you posted awhile ago, the girl on the beach :)

How fun!!! I love contests, good luck!

Ah are you a 34A and you have problems with the push-up style bras? Push-up and demis do different in the fit, because of their different styles. Push-ups (especially the ones with straps) are more molded, and demis tend to give way to hold the more natural shape of your girls.

I think the best thing to do is just spend some time in Victoria's Secret and try on the different styles, that way you'll know which one you like best! =)

Aww that's too bad. No, they didn't come with tags because I don't think you can return them at stores, you have to look on the invoice for instructions on how to return them. Sorry they didn't work out for you! Next time. =)

Honestly Diane, I just kept searching for those perfect products. I tried lots of different things: from Murad to Clinique, to drugstore. Nothing worked and it got really frustrating at times because I hated my face!!! =/

But this did not deter from finding something that would work for me. Last winter, my face got really bad due to the cold. I got windburned/sunburned/broke out, but then I saw this girl on ABB do a review on Mario Badescu products. She had problem skin like me and when she posted her skin after a couple weeks of using their products her skin improved greatly! And that motivated me to go buy their products. I bought the Enzyme Cleansing Gel for any skin type because it said it does not strip the oils from your face. At that time my face was super dry and I was slopping on tons of lotion everyday! This cleanser did it for! It helped my skin calm down.

Then my skin got even better this past summer (no more major breakouts, and past scars faded) because I stopped putting on my makeup due to my job. For 3 months I rarely wore makeup and this helped my skin greatly!

Sorry this was so long, but I think it's important to realize everyone's skin is their own. You just have to find something for you. Plus, your skin does NOT even look bad! Of course, if you don't like it then it stops there. hehe Well, if you need anything else just drop me a line. I love talking about skincare as well as makeup.
