Smoky Plum Eye Tutorial

It’s not secret that when it comes to eye makeup, I LIVE for a palette. And a peek inside my in-need-of-a-good-purge makeup collection will reveal that MAC palettes make up the majority of my stash. Especially the holiday ones. I probably have eight or more of them.

For as long as I’ve been collecting MAC, their summer offerings have always been a favorite. They come in unique packaging with colors and products that are perfect compliments to a faux glow. Lure, Neo Sci-Fi and Hey Sailor! immediately come to mind.   I’ve discovered some of my fave summer products in those collections, like Skinsheen Leg Spray and Lustre Drops.

Needless to say, I was looking forward to MAC Alluring Aquatic with bated breath and it did not disappoint. The packaging alone makes it drool-worthy. And the polishes inside are great too!
