MAC’s Smoke & Mirrors Eyeshadow Palette is a very mixable set of shades. I think this is probably the best palette for no-brainer, no-thinking-required kind of makeup and, of course, this all makes it a great travel palette. Even though I think of lots of silver and gray for a smoky eye, this palette makes for a great neutral and brown-based smoky eye.

Here are five different eyeshadow combinations you could try using just this palette

  • Inner Lid: Fire In Her Eyes Eyeshadow
  • Outer Lid: Wide-Eyed Wonder Eyeshadow
  • Crease: Black Magique Eyeshadow
  • Brow: Fire In Her Eyes Eyeshadow
  • Cheeks: Conjure Up! Mineralize Blush
  • Lips: Sweetie Lipstick, She-Zam Dazzleglass
