This is for all you MAC junkies out there! Over the summer I finally picked up the newer version of MAC's pan eyeshadow palette. I decided having all of them in one was much easier than opening two separate palettes, and I think I use them more often now that I see them all together. There is a clear plastic (seen on the left) that separates the two sides to prevent them from touching. Above I marked my most used eyeshadows with hearts, because I love them that much, but really it's just cute.
Below I listed out every color in case you were curious, and starred my favorites.
Top Row: Brule / Phloof* / Vanilla / Nylon* / Ricepaper
Middle Row: Jest* / Naked Lunch / Glamour Check* / All that Glitters / Patina
Bottom Row: Bold and Brazen / Expensive Pink / Electra / Wedge* / Soft Brown
Since my idol Lauren Conrad doesn't really wear much eyeshadow, I don't really either. If I do, it's always the same basic neutrals to just give my eyes definition. The standout in my neutral palette is Nylon, which instantly brightens up your face when applied to the inner corner. I typically start with applying Naked Lunch or Jest to my lid, Wedge in the crease for natural definition, then combine Phloof and Vanilla for my brow bone. If it's the weekend, my favorite color to darken up my crease it Bronze.. it does wonders for blue eyes!
Middle Row: Smoke and Diamonds / Knight Divine / Style Snob / Glamour Check / Sketch
Bottom Row: Corduroy / Expresso / / Mystery* / Smut / Carbon
Major side note: I started Bikram Yoga (hot yoga) this week and I'm happy to report I made it through my first class. I thought I would be distracted by the men in their yoga skivvies -- yes I'm talking tiger speedo yoga shorts, but I was more focused on not passing out and not hurting myself. I'm pretty competitive, even when it comes to contorting and stretching my body. I'm excited to see how I progress after my 30 day trial.
