MAC Cranberry and Woodwinked Tutorial with Jordana Best Lash Extreme mascara, with Video

I've uploaded a couple video haul/purchases videos recently, my channel is here http://www.youtube.com/beyondpalefreckled. Since I recently bought an empty MAC palette in the NYC Grand Central Terminal store (how dangerous would commuting past that be! :D), I was thinking about my few MAC shadows. I decided to throw together a simple look featuring two shadows I have, MAC Cranberry and Woodwinked.


Something I picked up the past week or so was a new mascara, Jordana Best Lash Extreme. One of my perennial favorites on youtube, Heidi jalapena2007 mentioned it and that it was somewhat between Mally volumizing mascara and Tarte's Lights Camera Lashes. I've tried a few products from Jordana but had passed over mascara. There's so many mascaras out there, it's overwhelming! Anyhow, with a winning endorsement (that's how I heard it at least), I made the big investment of $3.99 and bought it. ;) So glad I did, for the first time in I can't even remember - I loved a mascara from day one! We'll see how long it lasts, I can see it getting obnoxiously clumpy after a few weeks.

Another fun new budget buy in the video is the gigantic Wet 'N Wild ColorIcon Bronzer in Reserve Your Cabana, it's a light golden beige highlighter which has a fairly subtle very easy-to-wear shimmer. I'm liking this a lot for using all over the cheeks over a bland blush to give it some glow.

Let me know what you think and how you like to use these shadows if you have them! What are your favorite MAC shadows? Thanks for stopping by!

  1. You’re a beautiful woman! I discovered your blog from beautyfashionfitness’s channel. I have really enjoyed your videos and posts. That mascara looks amazing on you! I can really tell the difference compared to the other ones you have shown in previous posts. Unfortunately, they do not sell Jordana in the Seattle area but I just ordered some products offline. I hear their lipsticks are amazing so we will see. Love this look. Hope you are having a good day.

    1. Oh thank you, that's very kind! I've tried a couple of the automatic pencils from Jordana that I've liked as well (though somehow I lost one, I'm not sure how that happened!). I was looking to see if they had lipstick at a nearby Walgreens recently but didn't see any, curious to see how you like them! Might be worth hunting them down if they're amazing. :)
