my (half) mac palette

Saturday, July 20, 2013
Finally.
Finally, I bit the bullet and bought myself a Mac pro palette.
I love Mac eyeshadows because they're so pigmented and blendable.
Instead of having loads of random eyeshadow pots lying around, I figured it'd be better if I got one palette and they were all together :)



Even though it's only half-full, I love it already.
It's tonnes easier than carrying around seperate pots!
This is a perfect solution for my holiday next week :)

L-R TOP ROW: nylon, naked lunch, omega, woodwinked, espresso
BOTTOM ROW: smut, carbon

naked lunch, nylon

woodwinked, omega

carbon, smut, espresso
I use Nylon as a brow highlight or to highlight the inner corner of my eye to make them stand out more.
Naked Lunch is perfect to use as a base with Woodwinked through the crease.
Woodwinked has to be my favourite colour in this palette. It's like the perfect antique gold/bronze colour and it's so versatile!
Omega - perfect for blonde's eyebrows and as a nice neutral, plain colour.
Espresso is the colour I use for my brows because I have very dark hair.
Smut is the perfect crease colour for a smokey eye.
I haven't ventured much into Carbon, yet, but I'm thinking of using it as a powdered liner to blend in to make a dark, intense smokey eye. 

What are your favourite Mac eyeshadows? What shades can I add to my neutral palette?

  4. What a lovely palette! I love wood winked too its such a fantastic colour. I will definitely be checking out naked lunch, that looks like such a lovely shade. I love Wedge, its a nice soft matte brown but is very buildable to get a more intense colour.
