Macs club, amber lights, hush Cbb & orb that’s today ask me tomorrow and it will be different haha
Christine what Mac would you bring???

Wet n Wild Night Elf palette — there are 6 shadows, but I’d use it for the shimmery white, antique gold, burgundy teal duochrome, and glittery black 🙂

CONGRATULATIONS ON GRADUATING!!!!!!! You are such an inspiration to me. You’re so awesome!!!!

Wet N Wild’s Penny, Sugarpill’s Love+, MAC’s Electric Coral, and L’Oreal HIP’s Saucy duo (not cheating – it’s depotted so I’d just take the orange shade, ha).

MAC carbon of course… MAC Shroom… MAC Espresso… MAC Stars’N Rockets… one for liner one for high light one for my eye brows and a fun color for who knows…

I reckon I’ll cut off the bottom half of the UD Show Pony palette (Painkiller, Smog and Toasted), and throw in MAC Shroom for my four.

But I’d rather not cut it, so I’m breaking the rules and taking the whole thing. Nyah!

Can I just cheat and bring a Dior eyeshadow quint? It’s just one more! Haha. Anyways, I’d bring the Dior quint in Messai Beige, which is one of my favorite quints. If that’s not allowed, then… a MAC quad with Mulch, Satin Taupe, All That Glitters, and Naked Lunch.

It would really depend on what outfits I’d be wearing, but the last time I went away for the weekend, I took my MAC Neutral Trip palette that has Girlie, Sunday Best & Agate w/ Shy Beauty Powder. I also put together a quad that I really like and intend to take on trips that has Vanilla, Arena, Espresso & Brown Down. That’s an ideal neutral palette for me.

I just came back from a trip to Morocco and all I ended up using out of the eyeshadows I brought with me was Urban Decay’s Sin shadow pencil. Perfect, easy, and didn’t budge at all in the heat! Next time that’s all I’m taking!

Mac ricepaper
Laura mercier whiskey
Bobbi brown bone
benefit dandy brandy
I love single shadows probably more than palettes even though it’s less of a good deal, I’m getting colors I want for sure not half of the colors I want:)

MAC Charcoal Brown (brows)
MAC Soft Brown (transition color)
MAC Carbon (to do smokey looks and for eyeliner–makes a nice cat eye)
MAC All That Glitters (lid)

I have a customized 4-pan palette from mac with naked lunch, mythology, tilt and mulch. I always take that with me when I go on a trip!

wow, this is a hard one… I’d bring mac blanc type (highlight), mac malt (transition), mac all that glitters (inner lid) and urban decay hustle (outer lid or crease). But I have all my eyeshadows depotted (including my urban decay palettes) and instead of 4-piece palettes, I have a unii palette, which is great for traveling and carries more eyehadows 🙂 I love it!

Ummm, the last time I went out of time it was for the air force so I had to keep it simple. I brought (all mac) satin taupe, handwritten, brown script and sable. Those are a good set of neutrals for me

MAC Ricepaper, MAC Unflappable, MAC Nylon, the taupe/gold shade from the L’oreal HIP Electrified duo (I have all of them depotted in a UNII palette) 🙂

Hmmm- Mac jest, its a beautiful subtle neutral, sephora aspen summit, idk why its just one i use a lot. A gilly hicks eye quad which despite being four, im going to count as one because theyre so amazing. ive truly fallen in love with their beauty line and mac prussian because its so dark and makes my blue eyes pop with out being black and scary

mac jest- a great go to neutral, sephora aspen summit because i just seem to wear it alot. a gilly hicks eye quad, probably the pink one. ive fallen in love ith their beauty line, its amazing quality and is something of their best kept secret imo and mac prussian, its a great dark eyeshadow on my pale skin without being black and scary

I’d bring Revlon Vintage Lace, CoverGirl Coffee Shop (it’s a quad but I’m counting it as one eyeshadow), Urban Decay Scratch, and NYX Red Bean Pie for any trip lasting less than a week.

typically, it will be MAC Ricepaper, Sumptuous Olive, Silver Ring, and Juxt but I have a pro quad palette and it depends on the traveling season and outfits (I can put any of my refills in this palette).

Antoinette’s Revolution Ladies In Waiting (everyday wear), Urban Decay’s Sin (everyday, formal dinner, evening), Urban Decay Grifter and Last Call (fun, party, special event).

I’m SO sorry I didn’t get Unflappable. I have Centre Stage and it’s probably my favourite brown eyeshadow; I also got Ego and Dalliance but I really regret not getting Unflappable!

1)Brown, 2)nude, 3)pink 4)gray.
At the moment, I own these colours as:
1) Sisley’s Toffee
2) Sisley’s Dune
3&4) Estee Lauder’s duo Pink dusk
I can match pretty much anything with a combination of these!

I almost always take my Painterly paint pot cause it goes with everything. Otherwise, it usually depends on if I’m doing a costume or not…yes, while traveling. :p

MAC Brule, Amber Lights, Bronze, and Espresso.
I could do a variety of looks, like a simple everyday look with brule on the lid/browbone and either bronze or espresso in the crease. Then at night, I could do a golden bronze smokey eye 🙂

I’d probably bring along a fun blue colored eyeliner for the lower lashline to add a pop of color to my more simple looks.
