Just a couple days left until we ring in the new year! If you’re anything like me, New Year’s Eve will be spent at home with a few close friends (in my case, close family). But that doesn’t mean I won’t be getting dolled up. So I spent most of the weekend looking through all my shadows and trying to plan out some possible eye looks. And of course, when I uncovered the palettes on palettes of MAC shadows… I started to play.
My shadows are organized in PRO palettes, usually grouped in looks of complementary shades. The look I had randomly compiled above all centered around my fave shimmer shadow, Trax.
TRAX is a burgundy-plum with a ton of warm gold shimmer. It has a velvet finish and is a bit sheer but looks heavenly over a dark shade.
For underneath Trax, I went with SHADOWY LADY, a blackened plum matte that is soft and buildable.
And for crease and definition, I went with DEEP DAMSON, a deep cranberry-burgundy matte. This is a really rich and buttery shadow, and it is almost but not quite a “Marsala” colour.
Now when it comes to blending out the crease, I typically go with Omega, but for this look I decided to warm it up a bit with SOFT BROWN, a peachy-brown matte shade that looks phenomenal when blended with warm burgundy and plum shadows.
“How ever did she get that crisp shadow line?”
Here’s the look with some quick and easy liquid liner (thanks to Make Up For Ever’s new Graphic Liner, review pending)
