Brown Smokey Eyes with Alex + MAC Cosmetics Giveaway


Last Friday I went by MAC’s Auburn location and had my makeup done by my friend Alex. We decided to do a brown smokey eye since I was planning on wearing it into the night, and it  could double for both my day and night festivities!



I usually do not like getting my makeup done (thanks to a bad run with it before my junior prom…) but after letting Alex do it I have changed my mind. My eyes looked awesome. I was obsessed. We stuck to a pretty neutral palette because I didn’t want to do anything too crazy.


So here was the finished result…

FullSizeRender 3

I was really excited about the ending result…I sort of deleted my open-eyed selfie, but no worries because the main part I wanted to show you was the perfect shading of the eyeshadow! I loved it and you couldn’t tell as much with my eyes open!

A few of the products I am now obsessed with:

Paint pot long wear eyeshadow keeps eyeshadow on for 15 hours, and it is no joke because I tested it.

The NEW  big brow pencil, hands down favorite product for brows EVER, it just came out last week and it makes your brows look so full without looking drawn on, I am obsessed and use it every day now

MAC Lipstick in Whirl, I loved how long this lipstick stayed on and the color is perfection


A little makeup advice from Alex:

  • Do your eye makeup before anything else because then you won’t have all these particles falling on your face from eyeshadow, mascara, and eyeliner. It will brighten up under your eyes as well.
  • Do your concealer after foundation because it will automatically lighten up those upper cheek bones for highlights.
  • Put on lip liner last, it shows up better, giving you a fuller lip than it would if you were to put it on first.
  • When holding your makeup brushes, place your fingers towards the end of the handle. The brush is supposed to be doing most of the work and by holding it like a pencil you are not allowing it to do so.

***AUBURN/OPELIKA LADIES, to make an appointment with Alex or another MAC artist please call (334) 821-3900 ext. 5016 OR stop by at the Dillards inside Village Mall!***

Did you know MAC does absolutely no advertising? They are the #1 makeup brand in the nation and they became so just by word of mouth.

This blew my mind.

The only advertising you will see from this company is for their Viva Glam lipstick where 100% of the proceeds go to local AIDS foundations. How cool it that? .

MAC has also donated around $400 million dollars to local AIDS outreach all over the nation.

So in celebration of this awesome company AND you guys reading this post, Chameleon will be doing a GIVEAWAY!!

What you get:

2 MAC lipsticks in Whirl and Instigator

this is what the shades look like:

(P.S. This post is in no way sponsored by MAC, I just loved getting my makeup done and decided to tell you about it!!)
