Playing with MAC Neutrals

After getting back into my make up and loving the look of Clinique's Lavish Lilac, i thought i'd take it a step further and do a simple not too smokey, smokey eye.

I feel like this is something that i could wear during the day when i want to feel a bit snazzy. I use the colours i bought for my MAC quad, and kept things light. Using Naked Lunch all over the lid is beautiful and i could have stopped there. It's a beautiful, shimmery sort of peachy, champagne colour and is super easy for a wash of colour. However, to jazz things up a bit i used All that Glitters in the corner to brighten the eyes, especially as it was early, and i used a little to blend my colours together too and brighten the centre of the eye. I bring some definition, i use UD's Buck in the crease just to define the eye and use something matte to cut through all the shimmer. Mulch works perfectly with these colours for the outer third, to smoke it out slightly but nothing overly dramatic and that's what i love about this look. It looks like a lot of effort, but it's actually very quick and doesn't take all that long and isn't as dramatic as a heavy smokey eye.
