My Favourite MAC Eyeshadows + Enter to Win a Curated 30-Shade MAC Palette | GIVEAWAY

July 23, 2014

I feel like I have been taking MAC Eyeshadows for granted.  They have been in my makeup routine for so many years that sometimes I just forget how great the colour payoff is, how nice their texture is, and how long wearing they are.  I still remember my first few MAC Eyeshadows, which most are still my all time favourite and I use them so often that I had gone through a few pans...
My go-to MAC shadows in a Z-Palette
Among those shadows, my staples and my top 3 MAC eyeshadows are Naked Lunch, Satin Taupe, and Blanc Type.

Naked Lunch is a shimmery light pink.  It is my go-to all over lid colour.  When I don't know what to wear, I'll just apply it all over my lid, put a warm brown on my crease (like Wedge) and smudge a little dark brown on my lash line (like Swiss Chocolate) and I'm good to go.

Satin Taupe is shimmery taupe with a satin finish.  It is also one of MAC's best selling shade because it is just so easy to work with.  It works great as a defining colour, as well as all over the lid if you want more drama.  (It also pairs well with Naked Lunch!)

Blanc Type is creamy matte light beige.  I'm saving the best for last.  You may think that it is boring cream colour, but to me, it is basically an eyeshadow eraser.  You can always count on Blanc Type to fix that crease colour brought too high and give you a clean edge of a classic cat eye.  I suggest using it with MAC 227 brush, best combo ever!
