PICTORIAL | Using My MAC Palette


Hello!

So, my latest post was my MAC palette that I had custom made by buying MAC refills. I appreciate that that MAC may exceed some budgets, so I wanted to show you how I make the most of mine by showing how I would do my eye make-up, using a few of these eye shadows. By no means am I restricting this look to just MAC products; any product and any colour range can be used.









1: Prior to the picture, I primed my eyelid to ensure the pigmentation is shown and the eye shadows stay all day. I used 'Naked Lunch' to sweep across my eye to create a light coloured shimmery base.

2: I made sure that my inner corner was filled with the eye shadow. This will lighten the look and make your eyes appear bigger.

3: I used 'Woodwinked' and put this in my outer corner and dragged the gold inwards. This makes a nice transition of colour.

4: I then blended all that I have done, using a MAC 217 brush. This is great as the brush does all the hard work.

5: Next, I took an angled brush and placed 'Mulch' at my lash line. I did not go all the way in with this colour as I tried to concentrate it to the outer edge to create a smokey effect.

6: Then, I used the same brush, without any additional product, under my eye to help balance the entire look.

7: I curled my eye lashes and applied plenty mascara.



I had a nice cuppa during this too.



TTYS,
CLB
