Golden Neutral Eyes

Happy Tuesday Friends!  I thought that I’d share one of my favorite looks- a simple shimmery golden eye with a bit of bronze.  For this look I used the MAC Colour 4 quad, plus an extra touch of MAC Woodwinked in the crease.  I worked these shadows in with a light hand; they could definitely be built up and deepened to add drama for night.  The intensity below is perfect for work, school, or a wedding.  I like pairing neutral eyes with bolder lip colors like bright baby pink.  Or, you could use a darker hot pink, coral, red (or whatever else your favorite might be!)  Here I used MAC Viva Glam Gaga on my lips, MAC blush ombre in ripe peach, and a little bit of Chanel Eye Kohl in Ambre- a GORGEOUS brown eyeliner- thank you Rian!! 🙂

Try out this look, and of course any golden/bronze eyeshadows would work just fine!

MAC Viva Glam- Gaga and Cyndi Style

“Viva Life, Viva Glam”- Cyndi Lauper

As many of you fellow MAC addicts know, MAC’s Viva Glam campaign donates full proceeds from the sale of Viva Glam lip products to HIV/AIDS research via the MAC AIDS fund.  It’s a fantastic program, an important reminder to the community of AIDS awareness.  Since the program’s inception in 1994, MAC has raised over $160 million for HIV/AIDS. Funds go directly to people affected by the disease, to medical research efforts, and awareness programs.  Each lipstick retails for $14, 100% going to the MAC AIDS fund.  PLEASE HELP SUPPORT THIS GREAT CAUSE! to the MAC site!

The two newest faces for Viva Glam are Lady Gaga and Cyndi Lauper; each iconic woman has a namesake lipstick in a color suited to her persona.  Gaga chose a blue toned milky pink, both reminiscent of the 80’s and a toned down homage to her original favorite MAC color, Pink Nouveau.  Cyndi’s color is a gorgeous muted coral red.  Both shades are Lustres (my fave!) and provide nice pigmentation and lots of shine.  They are both very wearable colors!  I’ve been on an ongoing hunt for my perfect pale pink and red, and these two are dead on.

LOVE these colors, and the ladies’ signatures on the packaging.

Thank you MAC! xx
