Finding The Perfect MAC Eyeshadow

Finding The Perfect MAC Eyeshadow

When it comes to finding the perfect MAC eye shadow for you, there is a huge range of colours, textures and finishes to choose from.

With every shade under the sun, and with a selection of matte, shimmer, satin and many more finishes, you can have fun and play around to find your perfect eye makeup look.

MAC Extra Dimension Eye Shadow

The MAC Extra Dimension Eye Shadows are a gorgeous range of lid colours with iridescent and prismatic finishes for all over glimmer.

The formula itself is a unique hybrid, which gives the silkiness of a cream, the finish of a powder and the blendability of a liquid, thanks to its liquid powder technology, which glides over the skin.

The shadow itself lasts for up to 6 hours on the lid, and can be used both wet and dry to create a light shimmer or high shine finish. There are no fillers in the shadow, and instead just contains pure colour pigments, which is what gives the shadows their incredible colour payoff.

  • Evening Grey – Swipe this sultry silver across your lids when you want to do a modern take on the smokey eye.

MAC Mineralize Eye Shadow

This gorgeous baked mineral shadow has incredible shimmer and colour payoff thanks to its unique formulation.

This makes the product super light and easily blendable on the skin, so you can build up to your desired intensity.

The shadow can either be applied dry for a light wash of shimmering colour, or wet for a more intense payoff.
