So, I was reorganizing some makeup and came across a MAC quad that was virtually untouched containig. All that Glitters, Honeylust, Mulch and Amber Lights. Now, I'm not gonna lie, those are the only shadows I have from MAC and I guess I lost them? And I treasured them so when i bought them. I've rediscovered a love for all that glitters with honey lust on the lid combined, the prettiest pink-tan! Though, instead of using one outer corner, one crease, one lid and one browbone color, I've been really into a one color smokey eye for some really lightning fast makeup. My makeup has been either medium greys, browns, or taupes for a more dramatic day time look. I pat the shadow onto my lid with a flat shader and then blend it up into my crease - feathering out the color. It gives me a defined put together look, but its not too much of a hassle and it's super easy to do. It's sort of like going back to the basics - you know? I rediscovered what many kids, and I had done in the 7th and 8th grade - single shadow looks. And I find that these simple looks are the cleanest and easiest, my favorite of these looks is a simple mate slate grey (a color like print from MAC) all over the lid with a black pencil dragged across the lashline. It's simple and defined and makes my eyes stand out. But, for an even simpler and more fool proof look, using tans, peaches etc. are even easier becase its virtually impossible to mess up and there's little to no blending necessary since the colors are so close to your skintone. I find that the lighter one shadow looks should be of a sparkly/glittery/sheened variety because otherwise, you barely see color. The light refraction would bring light to your eyes, and therefore attention as well! :)
