On the days that I’m wearing makeup which are very minimal at the moment, I reach for this eyeshadow combination. When the warmer weather rolls out I’m more inclined to go for gold tones that are not too in-ya-face. Another positive is that it works for those rushed mornings because doesn’t need an hour of blending – hello!
I found out recently that my eyelids are actually pretty oily, not in the oil-slick sense just oiler than I’m used to. Which means I’ve had to change up the products I use and do some priming on the lids. This is where MAC Groundwork comes in – a taupe cream shadow which has more dimension and colour than you see in the jar. Some days I go with just this one colour all over the lid and when I’m feeling fancy I blend a bit more into my crease. If you want to see this in action check out my latest market video.
MAC Woodwinked is where the fun happens though. Adding this over the top of the cream shadow really brings out the antiqued golden shimmer in Woodwinked. This eyeshadow has been a firm favourite for too many years and every time I whip it out I fall in love with it all over again. It’s a real beaut but take it too high up on the lid, passed the crease, and it starts looking like a mishap from the mid nineties.
