Spotlight on MAC: Autumnal Smoke (Using MAC Eyeshadows)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’ve repurchased MAC Expensive Pink twice as it is such a beautiful duochrome shade with hints of coral, orange and pink.  I’ve used it with a variety of shades and thought I would try it with cranberry and a deep charcoal for a warm, autumnal look.

To complement the look: I used Clinique Cheek Pop in 02 Peach Pop (click here to read more about this product) on the cheeks, MAC Beaming Blush Extra Dimension Skinfinish Highlighter to highlight the cheekbones and MAC Brave lipstick on the lips.

Spotlight on MAC: Going for Green (Using MAC Eyeshadows)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Green is one of my favourite colours to wear, both in terms of eyeshadow and clothing.  I thought I would play about with some MAC green eyeshadows and came up with this green combination.

To complement the look: I used Benefit Rockateur blusher on the cheeks and MAC Fresh and Frisky Huggable Lipcolour on the lips.

Spotlight on MAC Dusky Greens (Using MAC eyeshadows)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MAC Coquette is quite an interesting shade and a relatively new addition to my make-up collection.  Coquette looks grey-ish taupe but can look more olive green, brown or golden, depending on what other shades you use alongside it. 

For this look, I drew out the olive tones in Coquette by combining it with brown and green eyeshadows.

Spotlight on MAC: Aqua and Lime (Using MAC Eyeshadows)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Aquadisiac is such a beautiful, lustre finish aqua colour and one of my long-time favourite eyeshadows from MAC.  This particular eyeshadow is incredibly pigmented, so only a little is needed on a brush for high impact colour.  For this look, I used Aquadisiac alongside Lucky Green eyeshadow, which is another favourite of mine.

To complement the look: I used Kiko Baked Blush in Dreaming Coral on the cheeks (you can read my post and see swatches of this product here), Kiko Glow Fusion Powder Highlighter in 01 Champagne to highlight my cheekbones (you can read my post on this product here) and MAC Huggable Lipcolour Lipstick in Origami Orange on my lips.

Pink Plumage

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I really wanted to do something different with my eye make-up and came up with this bright pink and green colour combination.  The deep teal in the outer part of the lid adds extra depth to the eyes and also helps bring the pink and green shadows together.

To complement the look:  I used Kiko 3D Hydra Lipgloss in Shade 26 Sparkling Hibiscus Pink on the lips (see photos of this product and read more here), Too Faced Sweet Heart Blusher in ‘I Will Always Love You’ on the cheeks and Anastasia Glow Powder in Starburst (pale metallic pearly-pink) to highlight my cheekbones.

For this look, I used coral eyeshadow in the crease of the eye to add some subtle warmth to a bluish-violet combination.  Adding a little blackberry eyeshadow in the outer lid helped tie the coral and blue-violet eyeshadows together and added some extra dimension to the look.

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.
