My MAC Eyeshadow Quad

mac pro quad eyeshadow palette

Earlier this year I posted about my new MAC Eyeshadow Pro Palette which was my first venture into the MAC eyeshadow arena, and was initially filled with a duo of beautiful shades – Cranberry and Mythology. Recently, when I was at the Covent Garden MAC Pro store launch, I picked up two more shadows to complete my quad and give me the perfect palette to highlight, contour and add a pop of colour, and transform my makeup look easily from daytime to party time!

My quad consists of Nylon which is an amazing pearly-white highlight shade which I like to place in the corner of my eyes and through my brow bone to brighten the whole look. Mulch is a warm medium brown with a velvet finish and is perfect placed all over the eyelid and blended into the crease. Over to top of that I like to layer Mythology, a rusty-copper colour with a high-shimmer finish that gives the eyes a gorgeous pinky-brown lustre. Cranberry, a shimmery burgundy hue, is probably my favourite shadow from my Pro palette and is a joy to use all over the lid or, as I have above, as a liner for the top and bottom lash line. A beautiful rich plum shade that will be getting a lot of love as we slowly edge into Autumn and begin to embrace those seasonal colours.

    I normally struggle with the MAC palette as I always end up only like one or two of shades and disliking the rest! This is their first one I love all the shades, perfect Autumn shades.

    I have just added cranberry to my collection – such a gorgeous colour. Next on the list is woodwinked.

    These shades look so pretty together. I've seen Cranberry in videos before and I thought it was much darker than it looks here.

    You have great eyelashes!

    I love MAC eyeshadows but sometimes I also use Sleek, they are cheaper and comparable quality x
