MAC Pret-A-Papier Products & Face Charts

I don't know about you guys, but for a while, I have been wearing a LOT of nudes & neutrals when it comes to my makeup.  Most of the magazine ads I have seen lately tend to be full of models wearing the nudes as well.  I know, you probably thing it gets boring for me, however, I generally use my lips as the canvas for color on my face.  (Sometimes my cheeks.)  But, I do make sure to wear some outlandish shade of lipcolor everyday so I still feel springy inside.  This is why I am in LOVE with the Pret-A-Papier.  The color is coming out in the lipsticks (and a couple of the shadows).  If you look at the face charts (below) you can see that the looks, for the most part, are nude/neutral. 

Here are some beautiful looks for you guys to try!  If you do, link me the pics or the video!  I would LOVE to check them out! 

**I know I generally don't post face charts and such, but I have them ALL.  If you are interested in particular collections face charts and would like me to post them, just let me know!  I will happily do so!  I also have charts from many other brands that I just started accumulating.  Is this something you guys would like to see on a regular basis?  I work SO hard on getting these charts together and keeping them organized, I hate not to share if you guys would like them!  Leave any comments on this topic in the comments below or you can email me, of course!**

I'm back and forth on this collection. I usually only do bright looks but recently I've been into nudes. I'm sure I will make a trip to do some swatching to see if there's anything I really want from this collection. Thanks for the face charts! Love them.

I was trying to practice your looks on my Mac charts but mine do not come out like yours. Are you using makeup on the charts? Or is this done by a photoshop program they look so good and mine dont come close. How are you cloring them in?
