Spotlight on MAC: Vivid Coral and Purple (Using MAC Eyeshadows)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For this look, I used peachy-coral, copper and plum MAC eyeshadows on the lid, followed by a slick of NYX Vivid Brights Coloured Liquid Liner in Vivid Violet along the upper lashline (you can read more on this product here).  I really love how the purple liner contrasts and ‘pops out’ against the peach and copper tones on the lid.

To complement the look: I used  Too Faced Sweethearts Bronzer in Sweet Tea (click here to read more about this product), Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush in Sparkling Bellini (click here to read more about this product) and Loreal Colour Riche Shine Lipstick in 464 Color Hype.

Autumn Colours with Periwinkle Liner

I felt like doing something different with my eye make-up yesterday and came up with this combination.  I added in a slick of pale blue liquid liner along the upper lashline to add an unexpected flash of colour to a peachy-pink, orange and brown eyeshadow look.

Tip: If the blue liner is too much for you, you can just leave it out and stick with the eyeshadow look.  I really liked how the eyeshadow combination looked on its own as well.

Adding a sweep of coloured eyeliner to an otherwise neutral eyeshadow look is a nice way to introduce colour to your make-up.  This technique is particularly nice if you fancy trying out colour but find it a little daunting. 

Tip: Sticking to neutral tones of eyeshadow also means you can experiment with different colours of liner.  Try purple, blue, bronze and silver for a twist on the same look.

I’m a huge fan of the Kiko Water eyeshadows and so I couldn’t resist picking up another one when they had a sale in store.  I just love the shimmery, candy pink hue of this particular Water eyeshadow.  I mixed it up a little by applying purple in the crease and and a silver liquid liner along the upper lashline.

For this look, I added a slick of a glitter liner (Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in Amp) along the lashline to add some sparkle to this aqua-green combination.  I really like the glitter liner adds a little extra something to the look, without changing it too much.

For this particular look, I took inspiration from a skirt I have with a tie-dye, swirled effect.  The skirt has a mix of black, pink, blue and purple and I thought it would look so cool to mimic that combination on my eyes.

For this look, I brightened up a deep teal smokey eye by applying a true gold eyeshadow on the inner part of the lid.  Using a lighter, shimmery shade on the inner lid adds some contrast when using deeper colours elsewhere on the lid.

MAC Patina is a really interesting eyeshadow, in that it can look more gold, taupe or green, depending on what other shades you use alongside it.  I combined Patina with green, brown and taupe tones to bring out the different flecks in the shade.

For this look, I used shades from the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette to create a soft, plummy effect on the eyes.

Note: I used the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette and the brush that comes with it to create this look.  You can use any brand of eyeshadow you like which has similar shades to re-create this look (if you don’t have the Naked 3 palette), along with any similar brushes in your kit.

Green is one of my favourite colours and so I wanted to create a look based around this shade.  I combined together the NYX Slide-on Eye Pencil in Tropical Green with gold and lime green eyeshadows.  I completed the look with golden peach blusher on the cheeks and a satiny peachy-coral on the lips.
