What the world needs now is love, sweet, love…and it also needs all the women who
hoard love makeup to shop their stashes, because when you dig into what you actually have, you find gold!
Case in point: I was knockin’ around my makeup collection to find something to recreate this look Olive Wilde rocked by Mélanie Inglessis, and that’s when I rediscovered the wonder that is MAC Antiqued Eye Shadow.
Antiqued is a deep reddish bronze with a pearly finish in the awesome MAC Veluxe Pearl eyeshadow family (so it’s soft, easy to blend and buffs out without any resistance). You can grab it as a single pan for $7 or with an eyeshadow case for $17.
It’s one of those colors that you can pretty much wear with any warm orange brown in the crease. (Try MAC Saddle, MAC Soft Brown or MAC Texture, and reddish browns like Swiss Chocolate play well with it, too.)
Purple also pairs well it, and you can either do purple liner on the lash line or the outer corner, or you can do what I did here, which is layer it atop a purple liner base like NARS Nagoya.
Speaking of eyeliner…try Antiqued with either MAC Teddy or MAC Costa Riche. ‘Tis magical!
