My Everyday Eye

eyes1eyes2

I have a thing for make-up. On a bi-annual basis I'll walk into MAC and ask them to give me a new face. For the longest time though I would never get any eye make-up. I would strictly do mascara and maybe an added eye liner on a good day. Earlier this year when I was getting a new face I was asked about my eyes and I tried out a new thing for me, eye shadow. Now my daily staple are these to light shades. They are neutral and go with everything but eye shadow does give you a little somethin' - somethin', you know?!?

MAC Naked Lunch is the lightest shade and put that all over your eye lid. Then accent with MAC Soft Brown in the outside crease. Add mascara, done. Easy peasy.

No way is this an advertisement for MAC, I'm just crazy brand loyal to them! If you collect 6 empty MAC containers you can return them to the store for a free lipstick or eye shadow. This is why I tried out these shadows in the first place, because home girl got them for FREE! Now they sucked me in forever. Hahaha!

Have you guys ever tried MAC? What are your favorite cosmetic products???

  1. i have always (ALWAYS!) been the worst at putting eyeshadow in the crease, it somehow eludes me and i look like a raccoon! liquid eyeliner + mascara are my staples...i just can't get the hang of more than one light color lid-only shadow! yours looks great though!

  2. I'm a very bad offender of constantly buying cheep drug store make up... I know I really should invest in some better quality products, its going on my face after all! I love the matte look, but every once and while I'll gravitate towards something with a little shimmer in it. I'm not a huge mascara fan. I can never seem to find one that wont flake off and get all over my cheeks by mid day. But I guess I make up for it by wearing fake eyelashes most of the time.

    1. I love fake eyelashes but they always seem like so much work. Do you use ones that you put on daily or do you get the ones that last a couple days??

  6. I've thought MAC was all hype for the longest time, before I actually stepped into the store with a friend and tried out some of their Viva Glam lipsticks and honestly, I get it now. Such vibrant colours and GOOD quality makeup.

  7. Funny that you posted this because on my next shopping trip (I shop in spurts), I wrote down to go to Sephora. Even though CVS is a great resource for make-up, you feel better and prettier walking out of MAC or Sephora with some new goodies, don’t you think?

    1. Agreed. It just doesn't feel as special when I buy $1 nail polish at Dollar General compared to when I splurge and buy some Essie colors!
