THE VERDICT:  If makeup could talk what would it say?

Makeup would tell you I have worn this look several times over the past two weeks, since the purchase of MAC Little Black Bow Fluidline from the CCO.  This gray base color with multi-color shimmers should be applied as patiently as MAC Deliciously Rich and It’s Physical Fluidlines.  When paired with Nars Eyeshadow Primer, the color and sparkles of Little Black Bow remain well-behaved and do not migrate.  The sheer blush and light lip color complement this eye look perfectly.  I hope you found this helpful.  Up next, L’Oreal Extraodinaire Gel-Laque review.  Be well and stay safe.

About Maria Pia

A blog about beauty (what else), what makes me smile and life with two boys and a dog. This blog is about positivity and inspiration sewn in with a little humor. Makeup is not serious, but how we feel after we apply it, is no joking matter!!! I'm here to share my tips and tricks I have learned on my own for the past %&^$% years :) Enjoy my lovelies.


  1. What a beautiful eye look. I have this fluidline from last year and thought it unwearable. Now I’m going to try and recreate your look. Thanks for outlining all your products.

    • Hello Samantha,
      I’m so glad you liked the look. I love these shimmering gel liners that are unwearable as liners, but work spectacularly as eyeshadows. Remember to pat the liner on, and let the first layer dry completely before adding additional layers. Thank you for your support and comment.

  2. Hello San,
    What a great idea, unfortunately, the people in my life that fall in that age range are not interested in makeup (isn’t that always the case). However, you never know who may volunteer in the future. Makeup tips, from any source, can always be altered to fit your personal situation. Thank you for sharing your tips and commenting.

  3. You have a nice website.
    Once in a while you should do a make up routine on someone 5565/75 + and over. Your Mom? Aunt? Friend? There are so many of us out here in the world who like the make up advice but we can’t wear the same amount of make up as someone in their 20s, 30s or 40s.
    For instance I love foundation but it’s harder and harder to find a suitable one. Eye lash curlers are a must have!!! Eye liner is put on in lash line, between lashes. Make up tip I learned from a local make up artist who has his own shop. Michael Moore in Denver Colorado.
    Just an idea to widen your appeal. Lots and lots of Baby Boomers out here who need and/or want make up tips too!
    Your website and content is wonderful though!
