FOTD: Gorgeous Patina

The title is appropriate because Mac Patina eyeshadow is in fact GORGEOUS. I can't believe I never bought previously and it sunk lower and lower on my 'to buy' list. My husband bought it for me for my birthday, along with Gorgeous Gold, so I thought I'd use them in a look together.

I have to say that this may become my go-to "I don't know what to wear" look, at least for a while. Gorgeous Gold has the most lovely green shift, that actually shows on the eye, and Patina (which is a bronzey weird taupe shade) compliments it perfectly. I used a shade to darken the crease from the Wet n Wild Vanity palette, but you can just as easily use Mac Twinks if you want to stick with Mac, or any metallic brown with a slight purple tinge.

  4. The look is lovely! :) I'm a great fan of gold eyeshadows!


  5. OH WTF they look so nice on you! The green sheen in Gorgeous Gold barely shows on me, and when I swatched Patina in store it looked so nasty on my skintone. :( WHYYYYYYYY

  6. You look beautiful! I love the green tint to the gold :)

  7. This is gorgeous! I love that it's neutral enough but not "blah." Those two were made for each other =]
