Good Eye For Mac

Ok ladies, how many of you obsess over MAC eyeshadows? Personally, I think MAC has some of the best shadows out there because they are super pigmented and stay on till you take them off! I have made a list of what I think are the top 21 MAC eyeshadows every girl should have. So whether you have been buying MAC products for years (in which case, you probably already own most of these), or you are just starting your own MAC collection, here are my ultimate faves and must-have shades.

Sep 29, 2020 Original review: Feb. I have purchased MAC for some time, although not exclusively. My favorite products are the Extra Dimension Blush, SkinFinish, mascara, and all lipsticks. Don’t miss your last chance to order these MAC Cosmetics makeup products - the ultimate beauty deal. Marked up to 40% off, free shipping.

Starting off the list for must-have MAC eyeshadows is MAC Vanilla. This is definitely a holy grail for MAC lovers. It is an ivory shade with very slight pink undertones. It has a velvet finish, so it is more matte type of shadow. However, this shadow specifically has a teensy bit of shimmer in it, but not too much. Perfect for a natural highlight, and can brighten up any look.

A few months back I did a post about Mac eyeshadows. I have found myself becoming more daring with my eye makeup since I started blogging, so decided to do an updated top 10 Mac eyeshadows.

I have been collecting my Mac eyeshadows for about 2 years now, and I used to buy around 2 a month, sometimes more. I haven’t bought a new Mac eyeshadow in ages, as my 3 palettes are full now and I want to use up what I have. If you know you are going to buy more than 2 or 3 Mac eyeshadows I seriously recommend investing in a palette. An empty palette will cost you €18, or you can buy this palette from Make Up For Ever for €14.50. It has a metal bottom and will hold much more eyeshadows than the Mac palette. It will also hold other brands of eyeshadows, making it perfect for travelling.

The colours I have chosen below, will suit most eye colours and can be used to create day and night looks. I would love to know what your favourite eyeshadows are.

Good Eye For Mac

Blanc Type

As you can tell from the picture, this is a much loved eyeshadow. When looking for a neutral base colour, I find myself reaching for Blanc Type above all others. This eyeshadow has a matte finish. It is a creamy beige colour, that is seriously pigmented. A little goes a long way with this one. This is best used as a base colour.


Woodwinked it by far my most used eyeshadow. It is definitely in my top 3 Mac eyeshadows. It is a warm red toned brown colour, with a bit of a metallic shine. It is has a veluxe pearl finish . Woodwinked can be worn in so many ways. I love to wear it on its own all over the lid and blend it up into the crease. Woodwinked is such a special colour, because when it is blended out it looks like you have a few different colours on, that were blended in beautifully. This eyeshadow is a must and works on all eye colours. It is also perfect for people that are not overly confident with applying lists of different eyeshadows.

Sushi Flower

Every single time I use Sushi Flower, I aways say to myself, ” oooooh I LOVE this”. Sushi Flower looks like a very scary colour, but my god it is gorgeous. Sushi Flower is a medium dark pink colour, with a satin finish. I like to wear this in the crease as a transition colour, but over the summer I will wear it on the lid the odd time. Again this colour suits most eye colours, but would look really great on brown or blue eyes.

Amber Lights

Amber Lights is another very special colour. When this is applied onto blue eyes, holy moly, they seriously pop. It is a really rich warm toned, coppery bronze and has a frost finish. This is suited to most eye colours, but if you have blue eyes you need this. I wear this in so many ways. In the crease with blanc type on the lid and embark on the outer corners. Or on the lid with orange in the crease and embark on the outer corners. This is another Mac colour in my top 3

Beauty Marked

The pictures do not do this eyeshadow any justice. This is the most gorgeous blacked burgundy colour, with a hint of shimmer running through it. It has a velvet colour and is best used as an outer corner colour, or I sometimes wear it all over the lid, blended out for a smoky eye look.


Oh Cranberry, you gorgeous thing you. Cranberry is fabulous berried red colour with a frost finish. This is another colour that really makes blue eyes pop. I like to wear it on the lid, with a light brown like kid in the crease. This is another must have for blue eyed ladies.



Embark is a very unusual colour. It is a very rich brown with some red undertones. It has a matte finish. I use this more as an outer corner colour, but it blends so well that it can be used in many different ways.


Sketch is dark burgundy brown with a velvet finish. Sketch was one of the first colours I ever bought and I wear it in lots of different ways. My favourite is to wear it in the crease with any light neutral colour on the lid. This suits all eye colours.


Patina is such an undervalued eyeshadow.This is another great colour like Woodwinked, for those who aren’t too confident at applying lots of different colours. It is a golden brown colour, with a little bit of a shine to it. It is great for any colour eyes, but because it has a lovely golden warmth to it, it is brilliant for blue eyes. It can be applied all over the lid, or as I like to do, in the crease with woodwinked on the lid.


Right now, Coppering is my absolute favourite Mac eyeshadow. I recently did a tutorial with this shadow. It is a rich copper colour, with a veluxe pearl finish. This eyeshadow is so easy to work with. It can be worn in so many different ways, but I love to just wear it on it’s own blended up into the crease. It suits most eye colours, but for blue eyes this is a must.

The Queen of all lipsticks. Mac Ruby Woo

I convinced myself for a long time that I didn’t need this lipstick. I already had two beautiful red lipsticks that I loved and sure what does a girl need with another read lipstick? Yet the more I saw this lipstick on people, the more I knew it had to be mine. While in Florida last July, I finally took the plunge and my god I am so happy I did. This is honestly one of the most beautiful lipsticks I have ever tried. Actually scratch that, this is literally the Queen of all lipsticks. If you catch yourself looking at celebrities fab red lips on the red carpet, you…

These powders are suppose to be revolutionary and are said to mimic the effect of different lighting on the skin.

There are 6 permeant colours in the collection and 1 limited edition. The powders themselves are described as finishing powders, rather than setting powders. If you have oily skin, then you will probably need to use a setting powder on your very…

Spring time makeup

Good Eye Supplements For Macular Degeneration

Chill Insurance asked me “Do you prefer to stay in or go out during the winter months?” During the winter I barely budge from the couch. My routine consists of pyjamas, fluffy slippers and face masks! However, as soon as March hits, I begin to get an itch to become somewhat of a social butterfly again. I don’t know if it is the new brighter clothes hitting the shops or the new makeup releases that have me dying for a night out. Spring time means a change in makeup, so for this collaboration I have picked out a few of my favourite item that are both new and old to…

Youngblood Cosmetics launch

Good Eye For Art Definition

Youngblood Cosmetics have finally launched in Ireland. Youngblood is firm favourite of many celebrities including Jessica Alba and Jennifer Aniston and on Wednesday Irish beauty bloggers got a little sneak peak at all the lovely new products set to launch around the country in the coming weeks and months. I have always been a little sceptical of mineral makeup as I didn’t believe it could give me the medium to full coverage that I love. However after a masterclass from Youngblood Pro makeup artist, Philip Luque my views on mineral makeup were quickly changed. As many of you know I have recently had another operation to make sure that my…
