Would you believe that despite owning every MAC lipstick under the sun and a plethora of their face products and primers, I have never indulged in their individual eyeshadows...until now! I wanted to start my own MAC eyeshadow quad with four versatile shades that I can chuck in my makeup bag to fulfil every need and occasion.
I got the ball rolling with Cranberry and Mythology - a frost and a lustre finish respectively, which represent two of my favourite colours to wear. MAC Cranberry has been on my lust-list for a while now and I think it is such a striking colour and works beautifully all over the eyelids, or buffed into the crease. It is a warm red-plum with a pink/violet shimmer running through it. Mythology is a bronzed-copper shade that is my failsafe colour of choice when wanting a quick and simple eye look.
Two lonely spaces in my palette remain vacant which I want to fill up pronto. I think I need to find a neutral/beige shade to wear as a base and then another shadow to act as a highlight for my brows and the inner corners of my eyes, and then my palette shall be complete.
What shadows do you suggest I go for to finish off my foursome?
