This is my two colour, everyday smokey eye which I have been wearing pretty much every day for the past week, it's so quick and easy to do and looks like you have put a lot more effort in than you actually have. I used the colours 'club' and 'shroom' from MAC which are both recent purchases of mine which I have been loving using.
After using the Urban Decay primer potion all over my lid, I use my MAC 239 dupe brush (check out my blog post on £1 brush dupes here) to put 'Shroom' half way across my lid and in the inner corner of my eye. I then used the MAC 217 brush to put 'club' in the outer corner and blended it out into the crease. I love club as it is a duochrome colour which changes from a brown to a silvery grey blue depending on which angle you look at it from. Club blends out to a brown colour but then using the same 217 blending brush I patted on the colour in the outer corner to build it up and add more pigment and vibrancy. This colour packing makes it a more intense dark silver/grey colour as opposed to brown. After this I just take a little bit of what is left on my brush and put it under the eye near the lash line to pull together the whole look.

What do you think of my two colour smokey eye? Have you tried MAC 'club' before? What is your favourite MAC eyeshadow?


  1. Gorgeous eye look Islay. Might have to try this out with a few eyeshadows similar to this!
