FOTD : MAC Sand & Sun + Thank You Giveaway by Fleur de lis Creations

I finally did a look with MAC Eye Shadow Sand & Sun from the 'To the Beach Collection 2010'.

Honestly, this is maybe the 4th attempt to make Sand & Sun work for me. All previous attempts failed miserably. My eyes looked as they were irritated, haha... Yes I know, I have a pancake face! (^- ^)

Sand & Sun is a bright peachy color with a matte consistency. Feels a bit chalky, yet applies pretty smoothly.

This picture is to demonstrate the annoying neck lines that I have by nature... See how deep and awful they look? I hate my neck! (. _ .')

Color combo of the eye makeup:
MAC Eye Shadow ~ Sand & Sun / Jill Stuart Jelly Eye Color N ~ 02 gold light / Jill Stuart Jelly Eye Color N ~ 10 vintage deco

MAC Eye Shadow ~ Sand & Sun inner half of the eyelid. Jill Stuart Jelly Eye Color N ~ vintage deco on the outer half and a bit along the outer lower lashline. Jelly Eye Color N ~ 02 gold light in the middle of the eyelid and tear duct area (this will make the eyes gleam!).

Tightline and apply mascara. Simple as always, eh?!

I'm still loving Jelly Eye Colors a lot! So sparkly, and call me weird, but I'm really really addicted to the scent, haha... I don't know how to describe... hmm, maybe sugary and a bit flowery? It's just so yummy! :p

Laura Mercier Second Cheek Color ~ Orange Blossom is indeed a super pretty natural peachy color! Gives you a very subtle, yet fresh and glowy flush.

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté ~ 30 Faubourg Peach and Estee Lauder Lip Gloss ~ 34 Starlet Peach on top. Great combo!

The clover earrings I purchased from Shanghainese Dumpling are s adorable! So cute, yet elegant! Oh, and I also love my new scarf! It's made of very lightweight linen, thus great for summer! Feels super soft too!

Couldn't resist doing a kawaii face, haha...


- Dior Diorsnow White Reveal Makeup UV Base ~ SPF 35 PA+++
- Dior Diorskin Sculpt Lifting Smoothing Concealer ~ 001 Ivoire / Ivory
- Estee Lauder Nutritious Vita-Mineral Loose Powder Makeup SPF 15 ~ Intensity 1.0

- Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Color ~ Orange Blossom

- Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté ~ 30 Faubourg Peach
- Estee Lauder Michael Kors Very Hollywood Lip Gloss ~ 34 Starlet Peach

- MAC Eye Shadow ~ Sand & Sun
- Jill Stuart Jelly Eye Color N ~ 02 gold light
- Jill Stuart Jelly Eye Color N ~ 10 vintage deco
- Makeup For Ever Aqua Eyes ~ 0L
- Shiseido Lasting Lift Mascara ~ black

I hope you liked this look!

Pretty!!!! I love how you paired the look with a lovely scarf~

By the way, the link to the Fleur de lis website isn't working for me. It just links to the image. :)

Very nice and sparkly look with Sand & Sun.

I had an EOTD with Sand & Sun too. Do have a look. I think a similar application to what I did will work for you too, as you are very fair. Dab on the shadow to get better intensity.

Catherine said...

What a beautiful fresh look! The scarf is so cute too! :D

Hi hun! I was hesitant to get mac's sand and sun e/s (you're right, it is a little difficult to work with in terms of 'where the hell do you put it?') lol!
But I did end up buying it because you said it was real silky and goes on smoothly, so that's why I got it. I am going to try and create some looks with it- so hopefully it will work out in the end :)
Where do you buy your jill stuart jelly eye colors? I reallly want to get my hands on one!

Shanghainesedumpling said...

The pair of earring suits you so much, :) very pretty :)

MilknCookiie said...

Love the soft, subtle peachy shades! Very wearable and the sparkles just gives it that playful look. :P I like how you applied the Sand & Sun only on the inner half of the eyelid cause I think it would look very flattering on my puffy eyelids. ^^

Jessying said...

...SimMiChikO said...

very natural! love the jill stuart and the mac combo. thanks for this post!

Tammy said...

Hey Jess! I think Sand & Sun looks good on you, although I have to agree it's quite tricky working with oranges bc it runs the risk of puffy eyes hehe Also, I think your neck lines aren't too bad! I only noticed them because you talked about it lol

stellarvixen said...

you are a genius!
its impressive that you can pick individual color pots and do the mix&match..blending as well~

that's why i hardly get individual pan/pots...point blank what to blend them with :P

very successful attempt Jess!

ohh nice pair of earrings too!dainty!

Lulu said...

oo nice way of using sand and sun! i love it! now i'm kind of regretting not getting the shadow and it's all sold out now :T

mayaari said...

summer scarves are great! the shimmery shadow you used on the top/center of your lid really does make your eyes pop :) and I keep looking at the pretty shimmer!


i love the lip colour on you!! and your face looks flawless! :X

MiuMiu said...
