Mint Look with Mochi, Alluring Aquatic, and 3D Glitter

Before I really acquired a makeup addiction I had no idea that it took so many products to create a makeup look.

I created a mint inspired look using about 20 products.

This look was inspired from MAC's 3D Glitter in Pale Mint.

I really wanted to create a look using Pale Mint so I used it as my inspiration, creating a look as I went along. I also used three new products from the MAC Alluring Aquatic Collection which was released earlier this week online. Lastly, I used Sugarpill's Mochi, which is a gorgeous mint matte from the Heart Breaker Palette.

Here is a beautiful picture of what a makeup mess looks like. These are most of the products that I used to create this look minus the mascara (Too Faced Lashgasm) and Andrea black lashes in 21.

Here is how the finished look

Here's how I created the look:

I started with my face, applying moisturizer, MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC25, Fix Fluid Powder in NC25, and e.l.f. Maximum Coverage Concealer in Porcelain.

I applied MAC's Sea Me, Hear Me Blush from the Alluring Aquatic Collection.

Next I primed my lids with UD Primer Potion and BH Cosmetics Eye and Lip Primer as a base.

Then I filled in my brows with Milani's Brow Fix in medium.

I applied Sugarpill's Tako from the Sweet Heart Palette to my brow bone.

Next I used W.O.S. from Urban Decay's Naked Basics Palette and blended that into my crease using MAC's 217 Blending Brush up to my brow bone.

I then applied Sugarpill's Mochi from the Heart Breaker Palette onto my lid up to my crease below W.O.S. and blended.

I apply Too Faced's Glitter Glue to my lid using a synthetic flat brush.

Next I pressed MAC's Pale Mint 3D Glitter onto my lids using that same synthetic brush.

I lined the top of my lids using e.l.f.'s black liquid eyeliner.

I curled my lashes and applied Too Faced's Lashgam mascara.

I lined under my eye with Revlon's High Dimension eyeliner in Gold Flash and pressed MAC's Sea Worship eyeshadow from the Alluring Aquatic Collection onto the eyeliner.

I applied e.l.f.'s Long Lasting Lustrous Eyeshadow in Confetti into my inner corner.

I applied Andrea lashes in 21.

Finally I applied a vanilla eos to my lips and applied MAC's Enchanted One Lipstick.

Lastly I applied e.l.f.'s baked blush in Pinktastic as a highlight to my brow bone, cupid's bow and nose.

I know that's a lot of work for a makeup look, but I really enjoy the process of creating art on my face.

Mint is one of my favorite colors and this look came out beautifully. I can't say enough great things about MAC's Alluring Aquatic Collection and 3D Glitter in Pale Mint. I am in love.

Did you pick up any of MAC's 3D glitters?
