I´m gonna do some hardcore partying the day after my exam is over (July 1st) and I have a MAC makeover scheduled in the afternoon. my problem: what I´m gonna be wearing is the craziest color I own. I know the dress doesn´t look like much just hanging there, but it´s really stretchy and hugs every curve.

so I need some suggestions on what to ask for during my makeover. I should probably go almost barefaced cuz the dress is pretty spectacular itself, but I wanna look my best that night.

all I know is that I wanna get Quiver Pearlizer-I just don´t know about eye or lip colors.

HELP

ditto with trisha. since there is a lot going on with the dress, you don't want a lot of bright colors, especially any blues.

since you said it hugs all of curves, maybe like a sultry, smokey look with neutrals. not a black smokey look since the dresslooks kind of summery and bright.

great suggestions Liz and Trisha,

I barely own any neutrals anyway so that´s the perfect excuse to get some. and a really black smokey eye looks too dramatic on me anyway

Do you have Sunbasque blush and Love nectar l/g Arielle? If not i think you should invest in them x

no, don´t have either one of them. but doesn´t Love Nectar look very similar to Wonderstruck (I have that one)? the description of sunbasque on MAC.com sounds good-so I really might get that one and break the routine of my always pink blushes.

the whole look sounds good, you´re the best, Trisha. I´ve been looking for a good highlight e/s color anyway.

aw how sweet of you, trisha!!!!!!! :icon_love 1-2-bought! Wonderstruck is a lil too peachy for my cool skin type anyway. I already love the look of Love Nectar!

Oooh, awesome suggestions! I totally agree with going bronzy, versus matching the dress. Naked Lunch (highlight) + Bagatelle (lid) + Elite or Mulch (crease) would be really nice. Try out a lip gelee if you haven't -- Saplicious is the best neutral one.

Oooh, and ask the MA to try out Skinshimmer on your arms & decolletage (if you wanna be shimmery & sparkly!
)

Have fun & post pics, party girl!

Would even the Blue Peep be too much with the dress? And I'm not sure about Blue Peep with a neutral shadow -- I have similar (but slightly darker) turquoise liner and I didn't like it with neutral shadows, I like it better with colored or white shadows...

I think a good neutral or bronze eye would look awesome, nothing too bright on the lips or cheeks either -- just kind of a whole "my face but better" look! lol Maybe some fun shimmer though since it is a party
I just think you should keep the focus on the dress since it is so bright and sexy!

thanks everybody. Joy, I almost forgot about skinshimmer-lets hope it´s available by July 1st.

and I think I might skip the blue peep. I´ve worn it with neutrals before and I only liked it so-so.

but I will totally get everything you suggested, Trisha.

and I will definitely take pics. this is my first complete makeover EVER and I´m soo excited.

btw, it´s about $50.- over here. I think I read it´s only $40.- in the US, but I will probably spend more than 50 anyway so it´s ok

I was thinking the same as Liz --- a strong, smokey neutral eye and peachy-pink summer lips.

Yes, I agree with the smokey eye and the peach lips. If it were ME wearing that dress, I would do my bronze goddess look: Orange eyes with gold dust over the top, bronzer everywhere with gold dust on my face, hot peach blush and a gold gloss.. I like to go crazy even if the outfit is crazy.

I agree with the bronze shadow look or maybe even a nice gold shimmer, but I think because the dress is so blue you might want to try a green liner with it. Kinda like the green in the pattern. That's just what I would do though...I like pulling colors out of things that you wouldn't normally focus on.
