A Weekend With Woodwinked: An Eye of the Day With MAC Woodwinked Eye Shadow and MAC Costa Riche Eye Khol

MAC Woodwinked Eye Shadow and Costa Riche Eye Khol

I really like this combination: MAC Woodwinked Eye Shadow and MAC Costa Riche Eye Khol

It rained all last weekend, and I only left the house twice — once to get my hair did on Saturday, and then once to run some errands on Sunday afternoon. This is what I wore for the latter, a shimmery gold and warm brown eye look, which I rocked in the rain at Target, Pier 1 and TJ’s. 🙂

I will happily pile multiple eyeshadows on my lids any day of the week, but sometimes you just gotta keep things simple, ya know? — especially on rainy Sundays when you’re just putzing around.


All I did was pat shimmery golden brown Woodwinked, one of my all-time favorite shadows in MAC’s entire permanent line, on my lids with a flat eyeshadow brush, buff out the edges with a domed shadow brush, and then line my lash and water lines with Costa Riche (also from the permanent line). After that, I just smudged out the edges with the same flat brush I used to apply Woodwinked.

Ta-da! Easy peasy, and I think it looks more complicated and fancy than it actually is.

That’s MAC Brun Eye Shadow in my brows and Physicians Formula CC Mascara on my lashes

Maybe to dress this up a little, you could pat something gold and glittery, like MAC Reflects Gold or Urban Decay’s Midnight Cowboy Glitter Eyeliner, on your lids.

Which reminds me…UD’s Midnight Cowboy Glitter Eyeliner is on sale right meow online for $9.

Couple that with their Friends & Fanatics 20% off sale going on now (use code FFSPRING14 online), and that’s a pretty sweet deal.

    I bought my first MAC powder eyeshadow this weekend, Naked Lunch. I was actually looking for a dupe of an eyeshadow from my LE Sephora palette from a year or two ago, and I think it’s almost spot on.

    Love this look on you!

  15. I think I am one of the very few that do not like Woodwinked AT ALL.

    Your makeup looks amazing here! Woodwinked is my all-time favorite makeup product. I will even go as far as saying that if I only had to wear one eye shadow for the rest of my life, it would be Woodwinked. I’ve been through so many of them.

    love this look! Woodwinked is by far my favorite eyeshadow by MAC.. Whenever I don’t feel like doing much (makeup wise) or if I am unsure of what to do, I always run to Woodwinked.. I use it all over my eyelid and also in my crease..

  27. Laurel says:

    Wow Woodwinked looks so different on you than it does on me! It’s a gold-y bronze on me!

  28. slim1one says:
