Shimmer & Matte Series No. 2

1 Sep

I wore a grey dress and pink nail polish to a friend’s recent birthday party and decided to be matchy matchy with my make-up — which I hardly do. Grey is also THE color this fall be it clothes or eyeshadow. I love the soft drama of this look.

– MAC #’s 214 (short shader brush), 217 (blending brush), 242 (shader brush), 222 (tapered blending brush), Small Angle Brush (263), and 116 (blush brush)

Products you’ll need:

– MAC Eyeshadows in Blanc Type, Vanilla, Dazzlelight, Da Bling, Sushi Flower, Copperplate, & Satin Taupe
