Clinique eyeshadow duo in “coffee shop” its a dark brown with a little shimmer and a very light brown with a little shimmer with MAC Amber Lights. I love it because I found a black smokey eye is too much for my brown skin with yellow undertones. So this makes an awesome brown smokey eye.

oohhhh… that’s really hard.

i love browns so i have to say the smoke signal quad, jupiter mineralized eyeshadow

i want to write more but i think this is my final answer hahhaha

Clinique’s eyeshadow duo in Coffee Shop is a PERFECT duo, I used it up (which is rare because I own so many shadows). A perfect shimmery taupe/gold for the work day.

My favorite look is a cranberry smoky eye. I use MAC’s Cranberry shadow with the matte black shadow from Lancome (I always forget what it’s called because Lancome has a matte black and a sparkly black). But yes, cranberry smoke is fun for me. That, or a navy smoky eye.

Just some random ones off the top of my head… All MAC. 😛

-MAC Swimming + Humid.
-MAC Electric Eel + Bang on Blue + Deep Truth + Tilt + Shimmermoss + Vanilla.
-MAC Silverstroke f/l + Rondelle + Next to Nothing + Satin Taupe + Showstopper.
-MAC Teal p/m + Grape p/m.
-MAC Firespot + Cosmic + Goldmine + Gorgeous Gold.
-MAC Shimmermoss + Teal p/m + Tilt.
-MAC Gold Mode p/m + Revved Up p/m.
-MAC Softwashed + Softwash Grey + Grape p/m.
-MAC Violet p/m + Ruby Red p/m + Entremauve p/m.
-MAC Wondergrass + Eyepopping + Metamorph.

I mostly use Hard Candy eyeshadow, and lately I’ve been into shimmery brown/bronze colors. Or my other favorite is MAC swish (shimmery pink). I used to be all about super bright colors, but they don’t look as good on me anymore:(

I’ll have to look into HC some more then 🙂

I used to be about brights, too! I’m not sure why I haven’t been reaching for them as much, though.

I always use Bare Canvas Paint as a base with all my looks but here are my three go-to looks:

-Satin Taupe (on the entire lid) + Thunder (in the crease) + Dazzlelight (on the brow)

-Delft Paint Pot (on the entire lid) + Carbon (on & in the outer crease) + Vex (on the brow)

-Golder’s Green pigment (on the entire lid) + Newly Minted (over pigment) + Deep Truth (on & in the outer crease) + Dazzlelight (on the brow)
