Let’s pretend hell just froze over and I had to pick 15 neutral eyeshadows to use until the end of time… dramatic, but go with it… Or we could be a little more realistic and say that these are my most used MAC eyeshadows and ones that I would recommend to someone just starting out with MAC!
In previous posts I have gone into detail about each one of these eyeshadows, so I’m keeping the description quite minimal in this one. Have a look around my blog to see more indepth info, or just leave a comment below and I’d be happy to answer any questions!
|(L-R) Vanilla, Dazzlelight, Naked Lunch, All That Glitters, Woodwinked
Omega, Wedge, Soft Brown, Texture, Swiss Chocolate
Patina, Satin Taupe, Sable, Bronze, Smut
VANILLA (Velvet) — my holy grail highlight… Vanilla is an ivory with suble pink undertones that applies nearly matte.
DAZZLELIGHT (Veluxe Pearl) — pearly highlight that can be used on the inner corner, brow or cheek.
NAKED LUNCH (Frost) — beautiful “minimal pink with shimmer” shade that I usually wear on the lid.
ALL THAT GLITTERS (Veluxe Pearl) — champagne shade with the most gorgeous texture and pigmentation.
WOODWINKED (Veluxe Pearl) — metallic orangey gold that looks beautiful paired with warm browns.
OMEGA (Matte) — ashy taupe color that I use for my brows.
WEDGE (Matte) — versatile midtone taupey brown that looks gorgeous in the crease or as a transition. If your skin is darker than NC25 I would suggest Cork.
SOFT BROWN (Matte) — warm midtone brown that is perfect as a transition color.
TEXTURE (Velvet) — very warm orangey brown that I typically use under my lower lashline or to warm up the crease.
SWISS CHOCOLATE (Matte) — gorgeous reddish brown perfect for the crease and outer v
PATINA (Frost) — antiqued gold with a beautiful green and pink duochrome that is a great natural lid shade.
SATIN TAUPE (Frost) — purpley taupe… and absolutely stunning!
SABLE (Frost) — bronzy purpley brown. The frost is quite minimal and this shade can be used on the lid or in the crease.
BRONZE (Frost) — true bronze color that looks great on everyone!
SMUT (Velvet) — beautiful charcoal gray with purple and brown tones. I frequently use this in place of a matte brown or matte black. Great as liner or for the outer v.
