MAC Quite Cute Look

By  |  39 Comments

After swatching the Quite Cute Quad from MAC earlier today, I decided to play around with it to see if I could get it to show up decently, because swatched on it’s own it really didn’t impress me. Here’s what I came up with- I found using a Cream Color Base as an eyeshadow base, and packing the color on instead of swiping it on, really helped the colors vibrancy show through!









Too Faced Shadow Insurance
MAC Luna Cream Color Base
Quite Cute Eyeshadow Quad:

  • Boycrazy on lid
  • Goody Goody Gum Drop in crease
  • Azuki Bean under eyes
  • Moshi Moshi! On inner tearducts

Giggly Mineralized Skinfinsh in crease
Kat Von D Liquid Liner
Makeup Forever Aquarelle White Eyeliner
YSL Mascara Singulier
Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara (LOVE this!!)

MAC Giggly MIneralized Blush

MAC Candy Yum-Yum Lipstick

    I seriously like that with the winged eyeliner. I’m really tempted to get the palette but I don’t own any cream color bases, so maybe I should pass if it took so much work to make it bright.

    This is beautiful. I wasnt impressed with the swatches but this look is great. I would love to see how much you had to pack on the color and what color cream base you used. I currently dont own any cream color bases but I am going to IMATS NY so maybe I can buy some there if they are a good price. I dont think that I would buy the MAC palette but I would try to figure out what colors the dupes are for Inglot. I am so over MAC and their prices. I am just done. haha.

    Did your opinion on the eyeshadow quad changed now you did this look? Or do you still recommend not buying it? :)

    The look you did looks amazing! However this collection is for the birds. I am not happy about any part of this collection. Definitely passing this one up!

    This look is so cute and edgy I love it. It’s a shame the swatches werent very impressive and that you had to use a cream base and pack it on just to make the colors pay off. The prices of Mac have gotten quite ridiculous lately, but I’d love to see a tut for this look so I could use my own color dupes to re-create it.

    The lipstick is fab! The eye shadows are very pale though, especially in comparison to some of the inglot looks you’ve done.

    It’s not my favorite look you have done Leesha. It is the eyeliner I think. Black eyeliner always seems harsh to me. I will be borrowing inspiration from the girly colors though. I totally love the lips!

    I can see where the lipstick gets it’s name, it makes me just want to taste those lips.

    I’m not dissing the looks you’ve done lately, because I pretty much love everything you do. But this feels like old Leesha, total nostalgia from this. I love it

    This looks absoutelyadorable! I love the way it’s so innocent, but it’s kind of edgy at the same time. (I typed “fierced” at first, but erased it because I’m personally super tired of hearing that word describe everything :D) It looks really nice and I would love to wear this on a first date, or even after years of dating someone. It seems like it would be a keeper.

    Hi! I just want to ask what camera you use because the colors show so nice on your pics. I have a blog too and I’m struggling to make the colors show on screen. Can you help? I’m just starting out with my blog and I was inspired by you. :) thank you.
