Orchids are my favorite flowers. I’m starting an Orchid Series and to kick off the series I’m beginning with Coral Orchids. From what I can tell they’re called Vanda Orchids. Orchids have such diversity! That’s why I thought they’d make a great series.


A note, I did use MAC eyeshadows today. All of my MAC products were purchased BEFORE MAC started testing on animals. As I was a MAC lover from 1999 to 2012, I own a lot of MAC. I don’t use it very often at this point because I’m disappointed in MAC, but I did choose to use some of it for today’s look. I also used Too Faced and Sugarpill, both of whom are proudly cruelty-free.

This was taken with flash to show how Fyrinnae Cupcake Frosting adds a pink glow.


Also, my lips look awesome for this look. I love the Too Faced sparkler gloss with the la creme lipsticks!

I stipped the Jane Iredale BB Cream on my t-zone with the Urban Decay Optical Illusion brush and under the eyes, then blended it outwards. That’s all I have on my face today. I really love how great my skin looks. I swear this brush really does give a flawless appearance.

How to Achieve the Look

  1. Prep the eyes with Too Faced Shadow Insurance
  2. Apply MAC Vanilla to the browbone, crease and inner lid.
  3. Apply MAC Sushi Flower to the outer 3/4 of the lid.
  4. Apply Sugarpill Buttercupcake to the inner v and inner 1/4 of the lid, blending at the seam.
  5. With a fluffy brush, apply MAC Free to Be widely in the crease.
  6. With a fluffy brush, apply Sugarpill Flamepoint to the outer lower crease, blending inwards.
  7. Add more Free to Be to the crease, blending it in with Flamepoint.
  8. With MAC Fix+ on a fluffy brush, apply Fyrinnae Cupcake Frosting lightly to the lid and crease, just sort of dabbing it on.
  9. Apply MUFE Aqua Liner in Burgundy to the lower lash line and the outer upper lash line.
  10. With a smudger brush, smudge Sushi Flower on top of the Burgundy line, then with a fluffy brush apply a touch of MAC Blackberry to the outer crease.
  11. Line the upper lash line and inner v with Too Faced 3 Way liner, and the lower waterline with Urban Decay 24/7 Perversion liner.
  12. Groom your brows and apply mascara.
  13. Highlight at the inner corner and under the brows with MAC Vapour.
