Copy that!

If you're looking for inspiration for a new make-up look, get thee down to and check out the 'Looks' section where you can see make-up artist's guides for the latest fashion looks, along with instructions on how to recreate it exactly - using MAC cosmetics, but of course.

If you don't believe me, I'll save you a trip across the world wide web, by reproducing a look created for Dita von Teese's Viva Glam campaign. Anyone brave enough to try it, take a pic and post it wins a very special prize from my beauty bounty!

Groom brows with Stud Eye Brows and Espresso Eye Shadow. Add a touch of Vanilla Eye Shadow to highlight the browbone. Apply Espresso Eye Shadow with a 213 Brush all over eyelid, sweeping slightly up and outwards. Blend Brun Eye Shadow over Espresso to intensify the shadow. Using a 219 Brush, deepen the crease with Charcoal Brown Eye Shadow. Line the upper lashline with Fluidline in Blacktrack and a 266 Brush. On the outer edge of the lashline, wing upwards and create a slightly thicker line for a cat eye effect. Line the bottom lashline with Fascinating Eye Kohl. Then smudge a touch of Espresso Eye Shadow beneath the Fascinating Eye Kohl with a 219 Brush. The white line will create an eye opening look. Coat lashes in Zoomblack Zoom Lash.
Apply the lightest touch of Mineralize Skinfinish/Natural in Medium along the hollows of the cheeks to create contour against fair skin.
Line lip with Mahogany Lip Pencil and fill in with Brick Lip Pencil. Apply Viva Glam VI Lipstick over lips for this matte look.
