My Favourite MAC Eyeshadows

I love make MAC eyeshadows. They are neither to buttery or powdery and blend like a dream together. As a makeup artist and beauty blogger  I try tons of new eyeshadows on monthly basis, but these two palettes are my staple in my kit and  I used them most of the time - be it media makeup, bridal makeup or just for my private use. You can take everything from me, but not these two palettes. 

CARBON -  Black eyeshadow, shows more like dark grey. I use it mostly to tight line the lash line. 
BRUN - Cool dark brown matte eyeshadow. I use it mostly to fill in brows. 
CONCRETE - Warm grey-brown matte eyeshadow. Great as crease colour. I use it often for the daytime smokey eye. 
EMBARK - Dark brown eyeshadow with purple undertones. I use it mostly as the outer corner colour. 
SWISS CHOCOLATE - Medium warm brown with red undertones. I use it mostly to deepen the crease.
COPPERLATE - Medium Grey/Taupe eyeshadow. Great for soft smokey eye.  Great colour for blue eyes. 
BRONZE -  Cool bronze eyeshadow.  This eyeshadow will suit everyone. I use it very often for the night time smokey eye paired with a black pencil only. 
TEMPTING - Light brown shade with a hint of gold shimmer. Perfect eyeshadow for everyday. 
PATINA - Medium taupe with green and pink shimmer. I like to use it as all over lid colour or to give matte eyeshadows bit of oomph. 
TEXTURE - Light brown/tan with red undertones. Great as crease transition colour. 
CORK - Medium neutral brown eyeshadow. I use it mostly as a crease transition colour it makes the smokey eye little more blended. 
KID - Neutral tan eyeshadow. Great crease/blending color. 
NAKED LUNCH - Warm peachy-beige eyeshadow. Great high -lightening colour for the inner corner of the eye and brow bone. 
NYLON - Pale shimmery beige. Intense highlight for the evening look. 
SHROOM - Light beige with shimmer. Subtle brow bone highlight for a day makeup. 

FOLIE - Medium Brown with red undertones and hint of burgundy. I use it mostly as the outer corner  shade. 
BLACKBERRY - Deep brown purple eyeshadow. Not very pigmented. Great colour for blue green eyes. 
COQUETTE - Kakhi green brown eyeshadow with a hint of olive. Great colour for green eyes. 
ORANGE - Bright matte orange. I use it mostly to add warmth to brown eyeshadows. 
COPPERING - True copper orange shade with loads of red.  Very pigmented. 
WOODWINKED -  Medium golden bronze eyeshadow. Great for metallic smokey eye. 
HAUX - Warm plummy brown. I use it mostly as a transition or crease colour.
SUMPTOUS OLIVE - Olive green with golden shimmer. Looks amazing on dark green or brown  eyes. 
AMBER LIGHTS - Golden orange with a hint of  copper. 
PARADISCO - Pink Coral eyeshadow with a hint of shimmer. Great colour for the summer. 
MYLAR - white/pale beige eyeshadow. I use it mostly as a base and highlight for the matte look.
MALT - Tan Eyeshadow. Great  overall base colour. Also great for blending and as a transition colour. 
RETROSPECK - Beige gold eyeshadow. Great as  highlight and it also gives depth to matte eyeshadows. 
EXPENSIVE PINK - rose gold eyeshadow. Great for summer and for bridal makeup. 
MYTHOLOGY- Light Bronze-copper eyeshadow with chunky glitter particles. Similar to Expensive Pink. 

MAC Eyeshadows are available at MAC STORES and some department stores.
