Daytime Soft Smokey Eye with MAC Shadows


Today I have a very easy eye look that combines some warmer shadows with a touch of smokiness. 🙂 I used all MAC shadows here: Haux, Shale, Nylon, and Samoa Silk. Samoa Silk is discontinued now (I believe), but Makeup Geek Peach Smoothie is a dupe for it.


This is a very easy look to achieve. I wish the colors translated as well on photo as they do in person!

1- Apply Samoa Silk all over the lid and sweep up to the crease.

2- Pat Haux all over the lid.

3- With a small brush, blend Shale into the crease.

4- Using a blending brush, dip into Samoa Silk again and very lightly blend over the top edge of Shale, into the brow bone.

5- Blend Nylon (very lightly!) over the brow bone, and blend down so everything is uniform.

6- Use whatever color eyeliner that you like (I used Starlooks Chestnut).


The result is not overly dramatic, but still draws attention to the eyes.

I keep all four of these shadows in my “every day” MAC palette, so they are some of my favorites. 🙂

    Nice! This is my favorite type of smokey eye look. Very neutral, very everyday-appropriate. 🙂 By default, I much prefer browns and earth tones to blacks and grays.
