Eye Combo | The Rule of Subtlety

I didn’t feature any eyeshadows that I’ve been wearing in my “What I’ve Been Wearing #1” post, and I have been wearing this combinationĀ a lotĀ lately (truthfully, for the past three days!)

So, the two eyeshadows that I’ve been using are MAC’s “Soba” and theBalm’s Mary Loumanizer highlighter (breaking out of the box here…using it as eyeshadow).

Soba is the only MAC eyeshadow that I have, and (if I may say so myself) I am so glad that I picked this one. It is gold, but without being bold. That’s not really how I would describe it, but I just really wanted to have a “poet but I didn’t know it” kind of moment. Anyway, it’s a really pretty soft, yellow-y toned brown. The MAC website describes it as a “gold brown with gold shimmer”. It is also a satin finish. It looks really pretty and subtle as a crease color.

Second, I have been using theBalm’s Mary Loumanizer all over the lid. As you can see from the swatch above, it is a cross between a champagne and a gold. It’s shimmery, but not too shimmery. It’s pretty much my kind of color. It reminds me a bit of Stila’s Kitten eyeshadow (which I don’t have, but I may/may not have ordered it. It’s hard to tell).

There you have it! What kind of shadows do you wear a lot on a regular basis?
