Best of MAC The Neutral Shadows

Hi Everybody,

Here are a few of MAC's best neutral shadows and those which have made my kit.
For more...Best of MAC video below. Enjoy!

Row 1: Blanc Type, Naked Lunch, All that Glitters, Wedge
Row 2: Tempting, Copperplate, Twinks, Cork
Row 3: Carbon, Brun, Club, Sketch

These shades are MAC's best- in terms of being universally versatile and possessing the qualities that comprise a great shadow: just the right pigmentation, minimal fall out and amazing blendability.

These shades work well in creating most looks from nude natural looks to extreme dramatic smokey eyes. The work well with one another. They are buildable and intensity of eye looks can easily be played around with just by working with these shades.

Blanc Type - a matte soft bone
Naked Lunch- a peach champagne shimmer
All that Glitters- a golden peach shimmer

Copperplate- a muted brownish gray
Tempting- a brownish bronze
Wedge-light soft brown matte

Brun-mid tone brownish gray
Carbon-matte black
Cork-mid tone soft brown

Twinks-plumish brown with pearl irridescence
Club-duo chrome gray with plum & dark green undertones
Sketch-plum burgundy with irridescent sheen

I hope that was interesting & helpful!!

From Soft Neutrals to Warm Corals. ♥ Summer trend 2011

Hi Everybody,

It's been awhile since I have been able to put up a blog post. But here is one delightful one to come back with.

Summer has always been about color and brights. I am tremendously loving the refreshing return to bright corals. This is evident with the new show stoppers from CHANEL & NARS collections. CHANEL's Mimosa leads the trail followed by NARS Wonder Lipgloss and Canteloupe Velvet Matte Lip Pencil.

Here are a few of my favourite brights from my stash which will now be making a return to my vanity's forefront.
