I thought it would be fun to post some simple looks showcasing the new MAC Shiny Pretty Eyeshadows I purchased recently (you can read my post on the MAC Shiny Pretty Eyeshadows with details, application tips, photos and swatches here).  Each of the three looks in this post showcases a different MAC Shiny Pretty Eyeshadow on the lid to illustrate the effect you can get with these products.

One thing worth mentioning is that the extreme sparkle, sheen and complexity in the shades shows up much more intensely in person than it does in the photos.  So you can expect much more sparkle and glitz with these products in person!

There are quite a few ways I can envisage using these products, whether you want a subtle pop of glitter or full on sparkle.  Let me know if you would like to see more look idea posts on how to use these eyeshadows!

Application Technique for Each of the Looks

Each of the looks featured in this post utilises the same application technique, as I wanted to keep things nice and simple. 

Priming the Lid: I recommend using a cream-based eyeshadow primer with the MAC Shiny Pretty Eyeshadows, as I feel it gives the product something to cling to more effectively.  I used MAC Painterly Paintpot, as the texture works really well with glitter-based eyeshadows or loose pigment products.

Crease: Each look incorporates a medium matte eyeshadow in the crease to add dimension and shape to the eyes

Outer Corner/Outer V: Each look uses a darker matte eyeshadow in the outer part of the eye to add further shape to the eyes.

Lid: Each look uses a MAC Shiny Pretty Eyeshadow on the lid.  I patted the eyeshadows on with my finger to get the most saturated, high intensity level of coverage on the lids.

Highlight: I used a light, matte beige eyeshadow (MAC Blanc Type for all looks) to highlight the browbone.
