AUTUMN | MAC Eyeshadows.



Patina, Woodwinked, Arena, Coppering.

I have mentioned my love for MAC eyeshadows quite a few times over the last few months and so I thought that I would write a post all about my favourite shadows for this time of year. Autumn is the time of the smokey eye and for me warm, shimmering colours are the way to go because they really do accentuate my eye colour! My favourite MAC shadow for a warm smokey eye has to be Woodwinked, it's a warm orange based bronze and it brings out eyes like nothing else. It suits all eye colours too! No wonder it's so popular. Washing this all over the eye without any other shadows makes a beautiful take on the winter smokey eye! If Woodwinked is a little bit intense for you then you could use either Arena - a pale orange based shadow with a shimmer - or Patina which is a cool brown shimmer which looks lovely with a bronzer through the crease. The most interesting of these has to be Coppering, a bring orange shimmer which leans toward red undertones, I absolutely love this because of the contrast that the rusty finish against my pale eyes, I imagine it would look even better with hazel eyes! Coppering is an easy way to wear something a bit out there without stepping too far away from your comfort zone!

Hope you enjoyed the post, catch you next time!
