Becoming A Make-Up Artist: New Eyeshadows!

I went a little crazy at MAC recently after we have been getting into a bit more creative make-up styles.

I've been making a sort of scrapbook of all the make-up styles I like in magazines and facecharts i've made up. It's all so incredibly exciting!

Let's take a look:

OFF THE PAGE

What an amazing orange! It's that perfect 'fruit juice' orange with a golden shine. Everytime I saw this on display I had to pick it up and try it on my hand. Luckily the MAC store still had one today!

HAUNTING

Another shade that blows me away. Haunting has always attracted me like Off The Page. I can't wait to try this on tomorrow.

DREAMMAKER

I'm not too sure where this one came from.... I have a feeling from that eyeshadow collection MAC brought out earlier this year. I can't remember the name sorry -__-". DreamMaker was the sparkliest and strongest gold I could find and amazingly it was the last one!

PARADISCO

How long have I been eyeing this one up? Too long to remember. I love peaches/mangos with that golden sheen.

TRAX

Love at first sight with this one! A nice plummy maroon again with that attracting golden sheen. I think Mum has this one too.

AQUA

Aqua is a very pastel turqoise. I looked it up on MAC's site but couldn't find it... So i'm not sure whats going on there.

YOGURT

I picked up Yogurt because I thought it would make a really good base colour. It is also more pink than Bisque.

BISQUE

Another shade I thought would be good for a base colour. More beige than Yogurt.

You know whats crazy? I never wear eyeshadows and here I am buying all of these >_<
