{The makeup look that inspired the breakdown}

  1. Moisturize and use primer to prep your skin for makeup. Using a foundation brush like M.A.C.’s 190, apply your M.A.C. Matchmaster foundation from the center of your face, blending downward and outward. Apply concealer with a concealer brush, like M.A.C.’s 195, over and under the eyes and wherever additional coverage is needed. Using a large fluffy brush, like M.A.C.’s 150, set your makeup completely with the pressed powder.
  2. Using a  fluffy powder brush, like M.A.C.’s 129, apply M.A.C. Skinfinish Natural in Medium Deep as a bronzer. Apply everywhere the sun would hit you naturally, the bony prominences of the face-nose, chin, temple and forehead blending up into the hairline. To sculpt and slim your face, apply the brown powder directly under your cheekbones to contour, blending softly into the foundation and powder. You don’t want any harsh obvious lines or stripes, be sure to blend everything together. Smile to find the round, fleshy, apple of your cheeks and apply your Coygirl blush, blending softly up into the hairline for a natural flush.
  3. Using a synthetic bristle brush, like M.A.C.’s 242, apply cream eye shadow in Painterly all over the lid up to the eyebrows. Apply Nehru eye shadow to the lid and slightly up to the crease, but not above it, following the natural shape of the eye socket. You want the majority of the color and product to be on the lid.
  4. Using a pencil brush, like M.A.C.’s 219, apply Typographic eye shadow to the crease. Following the shape of the eye socket. Be sure you carry the eye shadow just slightly above the crease so you can see the color when your eyes are open. Using a clean tapered blending brush, like M.A.C.’s 222, softly blend the cream and powder eye shadows together until you achieve the desired color, shape, and effect.
  5. Using your pencil brush and the Typographic eyeshadow, lightly press in and apply to the lower lash line, smudging the product into the lower lashes, smoking out the line and blending to achieve the desired effect. You want the most concentration of color and product to be on the outer edge and corner of the eye. Concentrate on the outer edge and draw the line all the way in towards the inner corner of the eye, getting thinner as you reach the tear duct.
  6. Using M.A.C. Powerpoint Eye Pencil in Engraved, starting at the outer lashes and working your way in, apply a thin, tight line to the upper lashes and lower lash waterline. Drawing the line thinner as you reach the inner corner and tear duct. You can go over the line to smooth it out, even out any mistakes, and make a slightly thicker line on the outer edge. Again, you want the most concentration of color and product to be on the outer edge and corner of the eye. You really want to deposit the product at the base of the lashes, making the lashes look thick and lush and further defining the eye.
  7. Curl your lashes with the Shu Uemura eyelash curler. Get as far back to the eyelid as possible (without pinching!) and pump the curler for ten seconds to really lock in the curl. Apply M.A.C. Plush Lash mascara to the upper and lower lashes, getting as far back to the root of the lashes as possible for a thick, rich look.
  8. Using your fingers or a pair of tweezers, carefully remove the lashes. Apply a thin but substantial amount of glue to the base of the lashes, (apply a little extra on the inner and outer edges) wait twenty seconds for the glue to become tacky, and then apply the lashes just on top of your natural lashes. These lashes add a natural yet eye opening effect. You want to place the lashes just on top of your own natural ones; you can hold them in place and give them a moment to set up before you proceed. The glue goes on white but dries clear. Once the lashes and subsequent glue have dried, you can take one more pass with your black eye pencil. Gently apply a thin line of eye pencil just on top of your false lashes; this will help make your false lashes look more natural.
  9. Use a synthetic bristle angle brush, like M.A.C.’s 266, to lightly fill in your brows with M.A.C. eye shadow in Omega. Use short, upward strokes- you’re creating a shadow effect, the illusion that there is slightly more hair.
  10. Line and fill in the lips completely with M.A.C. Pro Longwear Lip Pencil in Staunchly Stylish. Apply a coat of Hue Lipstick and top it off with a layer of Instant Gold Lustreglass for shine and to complete your Stacy Keibler look.
I’m sure many of you know Stacy from Dancing With the Stars, or maybe from her past career as a female wrestler. I know of her because she is currently dating George Clooney. I think she consistently looks gorgeous and her hair and makeup always looks great {read: BreBeauty approved}. I like that she favors smoky eyes but still branches out and wears a classic red lip for events as well.
What do you think of Stacy and George? Would you wear this sexy, smoky eye look?

    I’ve been using Dermologica products thanks to you and I love them and have had fewer break outs too. I use the tinted moisturizer and wondered if I need to use primer under it? What do you think?
    Love all these great make up tips! Teri
