My MAC Quad

Just a quick makeup post today as I am completely snowed under with homework (anyone else leave everything to the night before?). Anyway, back to MAC (aha) and onto the contents of my quad...

Top Left - Naked Lunch, Top Right - Cranberry, Bottom Left - All That Glitters, Bottom Right - Mythology

Naked Lunch - A cult pale pink champagne colour perfect swept all over the lid for school, or as an inner corner and browbone highlight. I would really recommend this one if you are new to MAC eyeshadows as it is effortless and super versatile.

Cranberry - Perfect for an Autumn/Winter night out, or a special festive occasion. This shadow is seriously pigmented and works well in the crease with Naked Lunch on the lid accompanied by a brown kohl liner (I recommend Stila's Smudge Stick in Damsel).

All That Glitters - One of those 'Throw On And Go' shades; a stunning mild rose-gold colour that looks like you've put in loads of effort when you really haven't ;)

Mythology - A shimmery copper colour that is the least smooth to apply of the bunch, but still looks gorgeous on your peepers and would really complement blue eyes. I wish I picked up Woodwinked now seeing as I don't have blue eyes *facepalm*.


I hope you enjoyed reading about my MAC quad and perhaps it gave you some inspiration if you are starting, or adding to, a palette:) One day I will go all out and purchase a x15 pro palette, but for now I'll continue to use this little'un.

Also, a MASSIVE thankyou for 10 followers! I honestly wasn't expecting anyone to stumble across my site for months and am now so grateful that 10 lovely people are keen to read my posts. It is my very first milestone and means so much:)

[P.S. Sorry for no swatches, the miserable weather ruined my lighting mid-photo session; I'm sure a quick Google search will provide you with all you need]

Thanks again for reading, 

Esmé
