The November MAC Quad

I love to wear eyeshadows in the Autumn/ Winter months; gimme all the shades of burnt orange,golden bronze & berry red. 

Here’s an insight into my MAC Quad this month..


If you have blue eyes then you NEEEEEEED this eyeshadow, not kidding. I picked this one up for my birthday and it's the most beautiful golden eyeshadow (sorry UD half baked.) Whenever I wear this I get so many comments on how blue my eyes look and I think it's due to the slight copper undertone that Amber Lights possesses. The texture is creamy yet almost foiled, meaning a tiny bit of this eyeshadow goes a really long way- when blended Amber Lights transforms into a deeper version of itself. A staple for this time of year.

I had always lusted after this eyeshadow but wimped out each time I went into MAC, could I pull off a green eyeshadow without looking like a 90's reject?! yes yes yes. This is such a beautiful green shade, it has a golden shimmer running throughout it which is why I think it's such an easy yet bold(er) colour to wear- it's perfect for a/w! If you have brown eyes this eyeshadow would look incredible on you, or if you have red hair.

This is one of MAC's most popular eyeshadows and one that everyone seemed to recommend to me when I was trying to complete this quad, Satin Taupe is a silver toned brown with an almost purple shade running throughout. And I do love this shade but it's one I seem to forget about, I don't know if this is because i will usually reach for my Naked palette if I want a brown smokey eye & I tend to prefer warmer toned shadows. If you are a cool toned kinda gal then i'd say give this eyeshadow a swatch and see how you feel about it, this would look stunning on green or brown eyes.

I also picked up cranberry on my birthday after 20 minutes of deliberation at the MAC eyeshadow bay and I am so pleased that Hannah from GlitterMelody urged me to purchase this because it is the most beautiful eyeshadow I own. I did wonder if i'd look like i had just been in a fight and ended it with a black eye when I wore this eyeshadow but if you blend it out properly, it gives a beautiful berry smokey eye. Again, perfect for blue eyes as the berry undertones help to make the blue stand out even more and give you gorgeous, glowing eyes.

what are your favourite eyeshadows for the winter?




  1. I really want to try amber lights but I don't think it'll have the same effect on my brown eyes haha
