So I'm proud to say I'm now an admirer of MAC's Satin Taupe eyeshadow! This is big - I've always wanted to like this shade because I thought it looked gorgeous on other people! But, it always seemed to come across a bit muddy against my own fair skin tone. To lighten it up and sheer it out I've started applying it with a fluffy blending brush (any brush will do but I like Sigma's E40 brush) all over my lid and it creates a perfect, neutral smokey eye! I like it because it's still wearable for daytime but easily transitions to night with the help of a little black eyeliner. The look featured in the video below has been my fall go-to, so I thought I'd share it with you all :)
