top mac eyeshadows

Friday, October 25, 2013
As I've said previously, my high end makeup is one that I love to indulge in and with MAC, I always know I'm getting good value for my money. Their eye shadows pack just the perfect amount of colour dusted over the eye, and their range is incredible! Yellow, red, pink, burgundy, blue eye shadows - you're bound to find them in MAC.




I have 9 MAC eyeshadows in total and pack them all into my pro palette, but these four are my favourites hands down. The first one I picked was Nylon, which I use as an inner corner/brow bone highlight. As with all MAC shadows, they're extremely pigmented and very easy to blend, which of course makes them a winner!

The next MAC shadow I love is Woodwinked. Now, this has been ranted and raved about for quite a few years now, and rightly so. It's a warm, 'antique' brown with golden shimmers. Although it may not seem like it, this colour is so incredibly versatile and suits every colour eye. It's amazing for when you're having a 'lazy makeup day' - just dust this over your whole eye and you're good to go. No contouring or crease colour is really needed and is just a really nice, simple, versatile colour!

Next we have Espresso, which I just to fill in my brows. Because my hair is naturally dark, this shade suits my brows perfectly. All I have to do is use an angled brush with a small bit of this on and my brows are good to go. You can also use this as a heavy crease colour. Yet again, you can practically do anything with this because it's your simple matte brown.

Finally is probably one of my favourites of the favourites. Cranberry is such a perfect autumnal colour - a deep burgundy shade with a slight gold shimmer. I struggled with how to wear this when I fist bought it, but with some experimenting I think I've found a nice way to wear this without it being too OTT.

  2. These are all so pretty, I'd like each of them! I would have never thought to use a red/cranberry color for my eyes but I keep seeing it and it always looks so pretty! Something a bit different to spice up neutral colors!
