MAC Sketch eyeshadow

MAC Sketch eyeshadow £12.50
available online and in stores

Described as a burgundy with red shimmer, Sketch is a velvet eyeshadow from MAC and is absolutely perfect to create an all over smokey eye with a twist or buffed into the crease to add definition. Sketch is such a versatile shade and can be applied quite lightly all over the lid or pressed into the crease for a more intense look. I personally don’t see the red shimmer in this eyeshadow but it does have a lovely, luxe finish with a beautiful blackened-plum tone to it. I used Sketch above blended all across my lid with a little powder of MAC Nylon in the corner of my eyes to brighten the look. Ultimately I think this shade would work best as a duo, placed in the crease to contrast with a lighter, shimmery shade all over the lid, so I took to twitter and was recommended MAC All That Glitters to work as the perfect companion to Sketch. So I now think a little beauty trip to MAC is in order!

Is Sketch eyeshadow part of your makeup collection? What shade do you think will go well with it?

    This is such a beautiful colour, It's been on my wish list for quite some time! maybe i'll get round to buying it sometime this year! If I did have it though I would definitely be wearing this in the crease with a lighter shimmer colour on the lids

    This colour is stunning! I bought a shadow from Clarins (via TK Maxx) that's a little more purpley than this but haven't had an occasion to wear it yet! xx

    I wouldn't usually go for a shade like this as it looks unwearable and too dark, but the way you're wearing it, it looks gorgeous!
