Hello, everyone! For the third day of the Week of Love I thought it would be fun to talk about first loves in beauty. Back in the day, I got into makeup through MAC Cosmetics, but now it’s a brand that doesn’t really get a lot of love on my blog. Well, I guess that’s not technically true. If I talk about lipstick, it’s likely one of theirs, but I don’t talk about their eye shadows much, even though I heart them a lot. So today I wanted to talk about some of my first loves in beauty and highlight some of my favorite MAC eye shadows.
1 // SUMPTUOUS OLIVE
As you can see, this is well-loved. I use this on the outer corner and in the crease of my eye and it really brings out the color of my eyes. If I want a fairly neutral eye look with a burst of color, this is one of the shadows that I reach for.
2 // ALL THAT GLITTERS
This is probably one of my most used MAC eye shadows. I pair this with pretty much every other MAC shadow that I use and I even love to use it on its own as a wash of color over the eyelid.
3 // CLUB
This is one of my favorites for a smokey eye look.
4 // TEMPTING
This is a newer find for me. I love golden brown shades and this one is perfect to pair with a shade like All That Glitters in the outer corner and crease, or on its own as a wash of color across the lid.
5 // SKETCH
This is one of my favorite colors for fall. It’s great to add a bit of smokiness to a look or to use as a liner.
