Pink blue eye makeup with MAC Siahi and MAC Cranberry

Hi everyone!

This is a look I tried today with MAC Siahi and MAC Cranberry eyeshadow. Previous look of my Spring/Summer Look Book was Look #3 Pink Purple eye makeup with matching lips.

MAC Siahi from the Mickey Contractor collection proved to be one the most popular products from the collection. Less than a month after its release, Siahi had been sold out in most stores but luckily I found it tucked away in a MAC store in Shoppers’ Stop.

MAC Siahi

Here is a summary of the look:

On a well moisturized face, apply light foundation and pink blush on the apples of the cheeks. On primed eyes, apply MAC Siahi (base Β and outer half of lid) and apply MAC Cranberry(inner half of lid) and Liner (MAC Siahi). Pair this eye makeup with deep pink/fuchsia lips for a dramatic look or softer pink lipstick for a toned down look.

This is the completed look –

Steps :

1. Prime eyes with an eye primer.

2. Apply Siahi all over lid as base and smudge.

3. Apply Cranberry eyeshadow on inner half of lid and build up Siahi on outer half. Blending would be a little difficult since its a gel liner and powder eye shadow but the combination of cranberry with siahi looks great!

4. Apply Siahi or a darker blue liner on water line. I have used Bourjois Kohl and Contour pencil #81. It is a darker, blacker version of Siahi. Smudge it a little on the lower lash line with third finger or smudging brush.

5. Liner upper lash line with Siahi. Β Wing out the ends and finish off with a coat of mascara.

This is the finished eye makeup:

  1. just read on ikky’s blog that u got siahi… congrats…. i was floating in clouds for a whole weekend after i got it

  2. Oh very pretty πŸ™‚

    I use it as a base for teal eyeshadows sometimes, but mostly as a liner with golds and bronzes πŸ™‚

  3. Goodness Ankita! how did you blend this with power eyeshadow?!? like HOWWW??? It looks super awesome! :*
    And I will almost start to hate you for looking so pretty! and doing suck awesome makeup!!!hmmmphhh! I want to do this too!:X:X Oh and I left it on my blog too,I found of from Bhumika.. and she said ki you’ll get QVS at Beauty Center and other small shops in Mumbai.. :):)

    • Thank you Ik! πŸ˜€ It actually did not blend so well..can see that at the crease and at the junction of the eyeshadow and siahi on the lid, but I liked the combination so much! I just added siahi as base and added the shadow on top of it on one half and more siahi on other half..tried to blend a bit but not with much success 😦
      You try this and then post pics . I’ll check out QVS at Beauty Centre.

  4. loved it..!!! tell me something is siahi worth all the hype..? i mean i thought a lot uf blue eyepencils wud be available in dat shade na?? or is siahi realy unique? also how is body shop oil free foundation faring?
    ohh and fruity pop shades of eyeshadows are really hot on the runway right now..would love to see ur versions ankita.. πŸ™‚

    • Thanks Neha :)!! Initially I also thought I could find a similar shade in pencils but I didn’t! The closest one is MAC Auto-de-bleu and among other brands Bourjois Kohl and Contour #81. I even took the Bourjois one to MAC to swatch it next to Siahi to convince myself πŸ˜› So I guess I can say Siahi is quite unique. Plus it stays on all day..literally all day without smudging and its not that difficult to remove also. I think its totally worth it.

      The Body Shop oil free foundation is quite good. I have MAC studio fix fluid and its a little heavy on the coverage and a bit drying. For day and esp with the humid weather I prefer the TBS foundation. Its easy to go overboard with it cos the pump dispenses quite a lot of product in one pump and the best way to work with it is to take only half a pump of it, mix with a little moisturizer and it gives a nice glow without any oiliness and stays for 8-10 hours. Its a little expensive (Rs 1100-1200 around) and if I could find another oil free or non-comodogenic light foundation with medium coverage in a drug store brand , I would prefer that over the TBS one(cos of the price).

      I’m dying to do looks with the fruity pop shades you’re saying. I’m just waiting for my Coastal Scents palette to arrive πŸ™‚ !

      • ohh1maybe then i shud check if siahi is avalable now….:P

        dat foundation diesnt give oiliness is just the thing i wanted to hear haha but its too of now im happy wit bourjois foundation…

        lol then evn im waiting for ur cs pallette to arrive hehehe

        thanx ::D

        • Siahi is beautiful! Its’ll be great if you can get your hands on it. Try the Shoppers’ Stop near Andheri Station (w). Thats where I found it.

          Which foundation are you using from Bourjois?

        • bourjois ka im using bio detox… im planning to review it soon.. have u tried it?

        • No, I just have the TBS one and MAC Studio fix fluid foundation. Is the Bio detox good? I’d wait for your review πŸ™‚ I really like Bourjois products!

    • Ohh forgot to mention..really like your new pic. You’re looking gorgeous!

  5. WOW! ankita.. superb! siahi is looking sooooo pwettyyy on yoi.. :* πŸ™‚
