MAC Hey Sailor Inspired Look

From what I've read from some beauty bloggers, this is not MAC's best summer collection. To be sure, I went into a local store and played around with the new products. The colour payoff on the eyeshadows and blushes are not terrific. The lipsticks were nice, and the eyeliners were not awful, but the collection as a whole was not their best.
The promo picture for the collection, however, was quite captivating.
I was not a fan of the eyebrows with the hard line on the top fading down to the browbone. But the colours as a whole really worked well together. I want to show that you can create a similar look without spending tons of money on MAC stuff if you have similar shades.
The red lips here have a cool undertone that matches the model's skin. My skin has a warmer undertone so I chose a warmer red to avoid clashing.
