Star Trek Look of the Day #1: Luna Lustre

Hi, everyone! A few weeks ago I raved about the cosmic wonder of the MAC Star Trek makeup collection. This burgeoning Trekkie went a bit wild for this release and ordered several products from the lineup. I thought I'd share with you a few makeup look using these new intergalactic goodies, as they're so incredibly stunning! The first look I have today focuses on warm, glowing skin and lips, winged liner, and lots of lashes. 

For a luminous complexion, I first topped my foundation with MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural powder in Light Plus, then reached for the new MAC Trip the Light Fantastic Powder in Highly Illogical, a gorgeous peachy berry bronze shimmer powder that doubled as a bronzer and blush. For some extra out of this world glow (apologies for all the outer space puns), I applied Trip the Light Fantastic Powder in Luna Lustre, an ultra shimmery pale ivory pink, on the tops of my cheekbones and down the bridge of my nose. I also used Luna Lustre to highlight my eyes on the centre of the lid and inner corners.

To keep with the luminous theme, I used my favourite metallic eyeliner, Trish McEvoy 24/7 Shadow and Liner in Glamorous. It's the most flattering reddened plum that I wear all the time! Finally, the lips were all about MAC Lustre Lipstick in Where No Man Has Gone Before, a killer soft, warm pink with prominent gold pearl throughout. It makes the lips look so full, lush, and ethereal!

The Breakdown:

Foundation: Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation No10 mixed with Clinique Even Better Foundation in Alabaster
Concealer: Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer in Fair Neutral
Powder: MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Light Plus
Bronzer and Blush: MAC Trip the Light Fantastic Powder in Highly Illogical
Highlighter: MAC Trip the Light Fantastic Powder in Luna Lustre

Brows: Anastasia Brow Powder Duo in Taupe and Tinted Brow Gel in Caramel
Primer: Blinc Eye Shadow Primer in Light Tone and NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk
Eye Shadow: MAC Trip the Light Fantastic Powder in Luna Lustre (concentrated on centre of the lids, brow bone, and inner corners of the eye) and MAC Eye Shadow in Wedge (lightly in the crease)
Eyeliner: Trish McEvoy 24/7 Shadow and Liner in Glamorous
Mascara: Essence Forbidden Volume Mascara in Black

Lipstick: MAC Lustre Lipstick in Where No Man Has Gone Before

And a few more shots of the look:

I have to say that I've been reaching for Luna Lustre (the pinky-toned highlighter that my stash was missing) and Where No Man Has Gone Before (the most beautiful golden pink lipstick) tons over the past few weeks. They're both totally gorgeous and make intergalactic beauty so easy!
