MAC Smoke and Mirrors Eye Shadow Set

MAC Smoke and Mirrors Eye Shadow Set

Sometimes a smokey eye can be the hardest look to achieve, and yet it’s the look we all want for the holiday parties.  There have been many smokey eye mishaps where I have found myself frustrated, and looking like I have a black eye from a sloppy (shall we say rushed?)  makeup application.  Dark eyeshadows are notoriously hard to apply, especially if you are crunched for time.

That is why I can stop using MAC Smoke and Mirrors Eye Shadow Set.  It is beautiful, simple, and helps me achieve the sultriest smokey eyes in minutes.  The reason I am gaga for this set is that it is a softer, more subtle version of a smokey eye palette.  The colors are rich, yet neutral.  You really can’t mess up!  And during the holidays, simple and easy is all I am asking for.

Colors include:

  • Fire in Her Eyes – frost neutral beige (Frost)
  • Black Magique – black with gold pearl (Veluxe)
  • Deception – frosty golden brown (Frost)
  • Spell No. 9 – soft muted pink beige
  • Wide-eyed Wonder – mid frosty grey taupe (Frost)
  • Smoke & Mirrors – dark chocolate brown (Satin)

Makeup Artist Tip:

  • For a daytime version, smoke out Spell No 9 all over the lid, and concentrate Deception in the crease.
  • For a sultry nighttime look, blend Wide eyed Wonder into the crease, and smoke out Black Magique  on the outer corner of the eye.  For a softer version, you can layer Wide Eyed Wonder over Black Magique to soften the color.
  • Remember, anytime you feel the color is too dark, you can soften and blend  with the lighter shimmer.  Example:  Smoke & Mirrors can be softend with Deception or Spell No.9.
  • You can use Smoke & Mirrors or Black Magique over your eyeliner to create a smokier version of your normal black or brown liner.
