I am having trouble deciding in which order to post my blog posts in a daily order.
Then inspiration came in, the gorgeous and wonderful Ebru posted her favorite eye shadows and I smiled because we shared two :)
Eye shadows...I am on the fence about. I wear them, I think because I have them! I think so long as I have any random shimmery champagne ish color I would be ok for the rest of my life ( IF I REALLY had to just have one)
But I like choices, even among things that are not my favorite
Current choices of late are my from my MAC palette
I had not worn MAC shadows in months...I felt bad. All of them in their palettes tucked away in the dark. I decided to bring some out in a quad and start showing them some love again. Here are some of my current go to colors.
Brule: (Top Left) I have tried a few MAC highlight shades, many to incredibly bad success. I finally just settled on Brule which is a matte and quite creamy. There is not exactly much to say about it! Matte and off white cream. Soft, and easy. Blended daily with a MAC 266.
All that Glitters: (Top Right) This and Sable were my first MAC purchases EVER. I was convinced I was going to love it and I still do. It's a great fall back shadow, just swipe it on almost any base and it always looks pretty! I love it alone on most days. It's a warm peachy champagne with the slightest hints that pull slightly brown and slightly pink. This is great one for all over the lid.
Mulch: (Bottom Left) Quite possibly my favorite MAC shadow with the ugliest name. It is a nice bronzy brown that has hints of red in it. It has shimmer but it is not over the top. I love wearing this on the lids and a bit under the eye with a bronzy liner such as MAC's Teddy. Instantly put together and daytime semi sultry appropriate without just going for the bright eyed look
Twinks: (Bottom Right) Twinks. Why do I like Twinks? The color is quite nice is a brown with more of a plum and slightly red undertone. I don't wear this on the lid, as it may make my eye a bit tired looking but I love using it as a liner shade. Either as a liner, or mixed with Mulch as a liner. It's quite pretty, defines the eyes, and still looks soft for daytime.
I think this particular shadow is not pressed as tightly as the others so I do experience more fall out with overall swipes but as a liner I have experienced close to no issues. I apply this with a MAC 263, ANOTHER recommendation by Ebru! Best liner brush!
L to R: Brule, All that Glitters, Mulch, Twinks
I don't do things with the crease and outer corner. Ever. I am not skilled enough but with beautiful basics, light washes, highlighted brows, and soft liner, these shadows make me love having a variety of colors outside a solitary champagne
I don't rotate shadows often but if I did, thing that would fall into my palette would include:
N*ked Lunch, Hocus Pocus, Sable, Blanc Type, and Brown Down.
I am also interested in Rice Paper, if anyone has it, tell me your thoughts!
What are some of your favorite eye shadows? MAC and other wise of course!
