One for You, One for Me
I know I can’t be the only woman out there who goes holiday shopping for others but accidentally buys a few things for herself. I suspect a primitive hunting/gathering mechanism kicks in when I see those deals exclaiming “Buy two and get the third one free!” for things like fleece pullovers. I end up buying stuff I’d never touch if it weren’t on sale.
If you’re going to accidentally buy yourself something this holiday season, then it might as well be something pretty and useful. Save yourself from the fleece sweater trap and wander over to your nearest MAC counter to get yourself the MAC Royal Assets Eyeshadow Palette in Warm Eyes. With six well-rounded shadows, the palette is my current go-to palette for work looks.
For $36.00 you get:
Sunday Best – Ivory with frost
Nobility – Light pink taupe
Retrospeck – Bleached blonde
Star Violet – Earth-touched pinky-brown plum fusion
Club – Muted reddish brown duochrome with green opalescent shimmer
Showstopper- Neutral dark brown
A Few Easy and Pretty Work Looks
The palette is great for creating put-together looks in a hurry.
If I don’t have much time to get ready for work I wear either Sunday Best or Retrospeck all over the lid, and Nobility in the crease. I’ll curl my lashes and add two layers of MAC Plushlash in Plushblack.
I’ll do the same as above but add Club or Star Violet in the outer V and then blend to eliminate harsh lines.
I’ll do all the steps above, and then wet my MAC 266 brush and dip it into Showstopper to line my upper and lower lashlines.
MAC Palette O-Rama
And if Warm Eyes doesn’t suit you, there are three other palettes in the MAC Royal Assets collection — Cool Eyes, Metallic Eyes and Smokey Eyes.
Warm Eyes is my current favorite of the bunch because the colors are conservative, pretty and completely goof proof!
Have you started your holiday shopping yet? I haven’t! My family is driving me nuts because no one will tell me what they want. They are all gonna end up with fleece pullovers, I swear.
