It was a very proud moment when I popped in the very last eye shadow in to complete my first MAC palette. It has taken me almost a year to fill as I wanted to make sure that I had the perfect combination of shades to suit my needs, shades to create a soft smokey eye for the day and a more dramatic version for the night time.
My favourites? For the day time I like to do a slightly smokey eye, nothing too over the top but so it still gives you that little some thing extra and for this I use All That Glitters and Mulch. This gives me just the right amount of drama for what ever I'm doing may it be just heading to work or going shopping for a few hours. For the night time I like a more dramatic smokey eye, some thing with depth and that stands out, but that doesn't look to harsh. To create this I use; Nylon on the inner corners, Naked Lunch all over the lid, Satin Taupe over the outer half of my lid and Mystery through the crease.
The shades mentioned above are my top picks from my MAC palette for the obvious reason of them being my go-to colours and knowing that they work great together. My other favourites?(All of them) Are Quarry- a great crease shade for a natural eye along side the likes of naked lunch, Smut - a grungy shade that works well to deepen the crease and add a bit more drama to smokey eye, Woodwinked - gorgeous for when you are tanned (otherwise it can look a little weird) for a shimmery bronze sweep across the lid.
The only trouble with owning a MAC palette? I want more! I am planning on creating a blush palette, or three , but having written this post I am also lusting after some other shades so maybe another palette is on the cards? I would love to hear what your top MAC shades are?
P.S.- I also own Omega and Charcoal Brown is a separate two palette as these are purely used for my brows.
