A Look With the MAC Enchanted Eve Eye and Face Palette/Cool: Cool-Toned Gray and Blue Eyes, Rosy Cheeks and Plum Lips

Published in: Face of the Day (FOTD), MAC Makeup, Makeup

My skin may have a sunny disposition — i.e., I’m warm toned — but sometimes I like playing it cool with cool-toned grays, browns and blues like the ones I’m wearing here.


I’m wearing the new MAC Enchanted Eve Eye and Face Palette/Cool ($49.50), one of the two eye and face palettes in the MAC holiday 2015 collection.

Despite seeming like a strange combo, cool tones don’t have to clash with warm-toned skin. Sometimes I think they look really cool! 🙂

This look didn’t take long, either. I used my trusty iPhone timer trick. I set it for 25 minutes, and then I committed to mostly sticking to the colors in the palette, because it has eyeshadows, a blush, two lipsticks and a highlighter, so most of what I needed was right there (yay for convenience!).

All I had to add was foundation, powder, concealer, mascara, a blue liner (MAC Metalhead, BTW) and a neutral matte brown transition shade (I went with MAC Cork), which I used to soften the transition between the cool gray matte on my brow bone and the frosty brownish gray on my lids.

I’m also glad I tried using Passing Fancy, the soft pearlescent orangey coral Cream Colour Base (a cream highlighter) that comes with the palette, as an eyeshadow base. I think it really enriched the frosty brownish gray eyeshadow.


Try it sometime, because those Cream Colour Bases are surprisingly versatile. They’re aren’t just good face highlighters.

Swatches from the left, that’s MAC Matte Eyeshadow in Cozy Gray (this one’s VERY sheer; I had to build it up for the swatch), Frost Eye Shadow in Chez What?, Veluxe Pearl Eye Shadow in Rhythm & Blues, Cheek to Cheek Beauty Powder, Lustre Lipstick in Feed the Sense, Satin Lipstick in Rebel, and Cream Colour Base in Passing Fancy

I also tried mixing the two lipsticks together — creamy, plummy satin Rebel and mid-toned nude mauve Feed the Sense — and ended up really liking how it turned out. 🙂

Lastly, if you’re considering this palette (FYI, it shows up October 22 at MAC counters, stores and online), do yourself a favor and save the included brush for dire emergencies only, because it’s scratchier than a tiger’s tongue!
