Striking Daytime Look featuring MAC's "Lady Danger"

Recently I have fallen head over heels in love with MAC's "Lady Danger", a vibrant, head turning Orange based Red with a gorgeous Matte finish. What first sparked my interest in purchasing this shade was hearing that the popular (and ever beautiful) Girl Group "The Saturdays" all adore it...and after using it myself I can understand why. As soon as I researched swatches, I knew it had to be mine. Unfortunately not many MAC stores stock Lady Danger, but hold your fire, it can easily be purchased online at

This Coral Red looks perfect on all skin tones, but I find that it really comes into its own on tanned skin, which it compliments beautifully. The Matte finish ensures that the shade is long wearing, and keeps the bright, almost fluorescent colour vivid the whole day, making it a perfect striking Red for everyday use. However do not be fooled, this shade is not for the faint hearted. With the incredibly opaque pigmentation it makes for a real attention grabber.

With this in mind, I just had to base this Striking Daytime Look around MAC's Lady Danger, keeping the eyes and face simple so as not to take focus away from the truly astonishing colour of the lips. 

Products used to achieve this look:

Striking Daytime Look

Get the look!
1. Prep the face: With Moisturiser, Primer and Lip balm.
2. Foundation: Apply a thin coat of foundation. We want the base to look natural, the lips will do the rest. L'Oreal True Match gives a lovely natural glow, and is inexpensive. Use your favourite concealer to cover any blemishes or dark circles. 
3. Bronzer: As I'm sure your are all aware, my favourite Bronzer is NARS Laguna. However, most shades are easily complimented by Lady Danger.
4. Eye shadow: Pick a colour that is close to your skin tone. I chose a Pink shade from my Benefit Big Beautiful Eyes Palette and used a light Brown from the same palette through the crease.
5. Liner: My favourite liner of all time is undeniably Maybelline's Eye Studio Master Precise Liner. It allows me to go as thick or thin as I like, and is easy to handle. I went for a relatively thick line, which always looks Chic with a Red Lip. I then used a subtle Plum pencil liner under the eyes.
6. Lashes: Keep it light and natural with one application. 
7. Brows: Instantly frame your face by defining your brows with a colour similar to your own brows. 
8. LIPS: If you would like to use a liner, then go for an Orange Based Red. However, this lipstick holds its own and can be used by itself when applied with a Lip Brush. 

I hope you enjoyed this daring look, I certainly enjoyed creating it and have been using it whenever I want to spice up my day. It screams confidence, and I can guarentee that you will receive plenty of compliments. This look is certain to make you a very dangerous lady!
