MAC Lychee Luxe Lipglass + Wedding Makeup I Did!



Karen from Makeup and Beauty Blog, recommended this for me when I asked her if she knew what lipgloss or lip colour would match the juice in the pic above. (The juice is a locally made Cherry Juice by Tru Juice). Now, this doesn't exactly look like the pic of the juice I sent but i LOVE IT! The juice matches the L'Oreal Colorjuice Lipgloss in Cherry on Top perfectly! So I got my match, and I got a bonus with this. I love peachy/pink/coral/light red lip colors, I'm just loving nudes now since the whole MAC Myth craze haha...so Lychee Luxe is just up my street. I love the gold flecks and how pigmented it is too! It didn't feel too sticky to me either and is long wearing. I haven't bought a MAC lipglass in a while so it was good to get this one!

Beautiful bride Alecia contacted me to do her wedding makeup. We go to the same church, and I am really proud with how it turned out and it helped me to fall in love with being a makeup artist again!! I love, love doing wedding makeup, although sometimes if they're not as organized as Alecia was, it can be a nightmare, but for the most part, I love it! I hope you'll give me your feedback as well :) Hope you likey!

The makeup is gorgeous! Great Job and I have always loved Lychee Luxe.

Question: I am a NC42 and NC43 when tanned but I have always found that nude colors wash me out, any suggestions?

Thanks Tina!

@ Ana, thanks so much, yes Lychee Luxe is gorgeous, I have always wanted it! To answer your question, you could try pairing Mac Myth with a sheer gloss (peach,pink,red)makes it a lot more wearable then u would get peach nudes,pink nudes.....but if you want nude nude..like flesh toned nude, you could try NYX Round Lipstick in Echo/Tea (not sure of the MAC dupe) and try L'Oreal Sheer colorjuice in either Bubblegum, Pina Colada, or Caramel Creme or lastly, Butterscotch Drop.
One flesh(complexion matching nude) combo i love is NYX round lipstick in IRIS with Revlon Super lustrous lipgloss in Coffee Gleam or Toast. Hope this helps!!!
