If you're a girl who loves her makeup, then you don't think of McDonald's when you hear the word "MAC." No, it's something much better than hamburgers and fries. MAC is one of the most renowned beauty brands in the world, one that offers a huge selection of pretty much every type of cosmetic you can think of. That includes eye makeup. If you want to wear MAC makeup on your eyes, you can; but do it right.
Apply a MAC eyeshadow primer over your lids -- foundation works well, too -- to create a base and give your makeup something to stick to. MAC eye makeup covers well and is really long-lasting to begin with, but a primer helps that much more so you can avoid reapplication. It's OK; you can cheer. MAC Paint works well for this.
Use a matte shade over your lids and then a gold shimmery shade like Amber Lights just in the crease area under the brow bone, blending well so there aren't any bare spots.
With a green shade of shadow -- MAC's Humid is the perfect shade -- cover all your lids in color. With a MAC eyeliner in Buried Treasure, which is more of a gold shimmery shade, color across the top lash line of each eye and blend with your finger to get that lovely, sultry, smudged look.
Add some of the gold shimmery color along the inside of your eyes. This really helps brighten your eyes and opens them up so they look large and lovely.
Finish off your MAC eye makeup look to perfection with a couple coats of black mascara.
For a night out with the girls, show off your sparkly, playful side by adding some sparkly shadow. All That Glitters is a pretty, shimmery shade and it works well on all skin tones.
