Let me tell y’all something about Orlando, Florida…it’s more than just Disney World. I know…shocker, right? Having lived here for 2.25 years, I can tell you that nothing annoys Orlando residents more than people asking about Disney World and Mickey Mouse. While I love Brotha Mouse, I haven’t seen that homeboy in years. Orlando has sites and locations that most visitors don’t see because they stay in the Disney World and Universal Studio areas. The Mall at Millenia would not be one of those places though.
Despite it being full of tourists, I kinda dig Millenia. It just so happened to be the location for Orlando’s Fashion Week (yeah, I totally missed that too) and one of the events for Fashion Week was a MAC party hosted by the MAC Pro here in Orlando. I rolled up in that piece with a bit of an attitude. I mean, MAC is cool and all and *insert reasons for why I’m not obsessed with them as much as I used to be* and even though I was a huge Disney kid, I just wasn’t all that interested in the Venomous Villains collection.
My make-up artist Mark totally changed my mind on that. He gave me one of the fiercest looks I have EVER had.
Oh yes, girl…I ain’t lyin’. Using a bit of Paradisco on the lid and some other shadows that my crazy self can’t remember, he gave me a serious party eye with lots of liner and lush almost false-like lookin’ lashes.
And he used this awesome shadow from the Venomous Villains collection…
Uh yeah…had to have it. He smudged it on my waterline to make my eyes look extra smoky. To give the appearance of looking like the wind had blown my make-up a bit. Oh.yes. And viola.
That lip is courtesy of Cherry lip liner (snagged it) and Toxic Tale (snagged it). I didn’t think it would work because Toxic Tale looked so cool but Mark made it work. And in honor of the event, backdrops of each villain was put up. I selected the Evil Queen from Snow White. She’s a mean bish but hey…she’s royalty and I dig that.
I couldn’t even take myself seriously. I kept laughing! Much love to Mark and my other favorite artists at the MAC Pro store.
Have y’all checked out the Venomous Villains collection yet? Don’t you even try to see what’s available online. It looks like just about everything is sold out. Friggin’. Ay.
