Last weekend Hubby and I went out for a couple of drinks and then to see a standup comedy show. Super funny. We had a great time!
So I wanted a nice, neutral but sexy eye makeup. Also, I wanted my skin to look good, like REALLY good. So here are some pics of the process.

How it was achieved:

MAC E/S: Wedge in crease (applied w/ MAC 217) and Texture on crease,
outer 'V' and lower lash line (MAC 217); MAC Carbon E/S as eyeliner (top lash line, applied w/ MAC 266);

UD Zero E/L on both waterlines; MAC Blacktrack Fluidline (on top of Carbon and on waterlines,
applied w/ MAC 266); Mascara (I used Real Techniques Lash-Brow Groomer brush -- excellent!!);
Eve Pearl Salmon Concealer already applied with my fingers
Primer, Foundation already applied (Louis Young LYL34 brush) and then concealer were needed
Then the rest of my makeup (list of products I used below) and voilà: Gorgeous me!
