  3. Mac Shadows For Brows Before And After

As always a fab MAC eyeshadow, debated which colour to get for ages as I wanted one I could use as an eyebrow colour and a good outer corner or crease colour as an alternative to a black smoky eye - perfect for both! I have dark/medium brown hair and this is spot on with no red undertone so looks really natural. Define your eyes with MAC eye shadows and eyeshadow palettes, featuring lush textures and lasting, blendable formulas. Free shipping on over 100 eye shades.

MAC is releasing a small collection today that’s all about brows and includes the brand new Fluidline Brow Gelcremes. I’ve been testing these for about a week now and they’re one of the best products MAC has ever come out with! It seems like brows are a bigger focus for people than they used to be… You can change a whole look just by making your brow stronger, thicker, softer, or more defined. Fluidline Brow Gelcremes can help you do all of that!

Sorry these aren’t perfect and new… I had to redo photos after swatching them.

Fluidline Brow Gelcremes are a long wearing waterproof gel that’s smooth and well pigmented, just like MAC’s Fluidline gel eyeliner. They glide on smoothly and set within a few moments, but you still have enough time to blend it out if you like or fix any mistakes (which are hard to even make with this product). Fluidline Brow Gelcremes have a velvety matte finish with no sheen. They are very well pigmented, so a little bit will go a long way… I got 8-10 hours of smudgeproof wear with these and was even out when it was drizzling but my brows still looked perfect, so the waterproof statement is legit! Only later on when I fell asleep on the couch 12 hours after applying did it smudge, and that was only at the tip of my brow.

My only complaint with these is that they are not part of the permanent line, although I’m hoping MAC will keep them around! I also wish that there were a few more colors to choose from. These three work well for nearly every hair/brow color, but there is always room for more.

To apply Fluidline Brow Gelcreme, you can use a few different types of brushes… My favorites are the MAC 208 angled brow brush for a softer application, a MAC 263 small angle brush for a more precise and defined application. They’re both angled brushes, so it makes is easy to shape the brow in smooth, consistent brush strokes. If you like, you can line and define your brow with a Fluidline Brow Gelcreme, blend it out with a clean mascara spoolie brush, then use an eye shadow to fill in the rest if you’d like a softer look.

All three of these colors are limited edition and are available now at MAC counters, in stores, and online at www.maccosmetics.com. Fluidline Brow Gelcremes contain 3g / 0.1oz of product and sell for $15.

Dirty Blonde: Dirty Blonde is described as a “soft taupe brown”. It’s a medium taupey brown that has slightly cool, but nearly neutral undertones. Since you can apply these lightly or heavily, anyone from a dirty blonde to a brunette could use this, so long as your hair has neutral to cool undertones. Dirty Blonde is also suitable for people with some gray in their hair, since it’s not as warm as the other two Fluidline Brow Gelcremes. If you also like to use eye shadows to fill in and soften your brow, you could pair this product up MAC’s Brow Duo in Blonde, which contains Omega and Soba eye shadows. For a slightly darker brow, try Coquette or Charcoal Brown eye shadow.

Redhead: Redhead is a “muted golden brown”. It’s a medium slightly tan/reddish brown with warm undertones. I can see this being suitable for anyone with medium, warm blonde or strawberry blonde hair, red hair, or even auburn hair. If you have darker auburn hair, you can fill in with this, then add an eye shadow to darken it. There are a ton of combinations that you could use! If you want a Brow Duo to use with Redhead Fluidline Brow Gelcreme, you could go with MAC’s Redhead Brow Duo, which contains Cork and Espresso eye shadow. If you want to go lighter and softer than that, try Bamboo or Arena. For some darker options, you could even go with Saddle or Folie.

Deep Dark Brunette: Deep Dark Brunette is a “rich brunette” color. It’s a rich, dark brown with warm undertones.

It goes will with MAC’s Brunette Brow Duo, which contains Coquette and Brun eye shadow. You can also use it with Espresso, Charcoal Brown, Folie, Embark, or any other medium to dark brown.

MAC has an amazing number of highlighting eyeshadows!
I must say, any makeup addict might be tempted to hoard all or most but you in no way need this many!. well, unless you are a MUA working on a remarkable variety of skintones and looks.

It is wise to mention that as the swatches of most of the colors look close enough to be thoroughly confusing so visiting a store and trying it on your skintone is the best option!

I would recommend having at least one matte and one shimmery highlighter to begin with. On a bit more advanced mode, it’s good to have one neutral, one yellow based, and one pink based highlight – but it is not absolutely necessary!

I hope that you find this helpful in your search for the perfect highlighting eyeshadow from MAC!

• GESSO
Finish – Matte
Color – Stark white

I would advise to use this only if you want a very strong highlight, or if wearing purples, yellows, blacks or greens. The texture is a bit chalky.
If you would like one similar to this with shimmer I would suggest you to go with MAC Crystal Avalanche or MAC Vapour.

• CRYSTAL AVALANCHE
Finish – Veluxe Pearl
Color – Highly frosted bright white

Mac Eyeshadows For Brown Eyes

It can be an interesting shade to use, because of both its brightness and the frostiness of its finish, so using a light touch with it may be best. It’s the perfect inner corner/brow bone highlight shade, especially if you have fair, porcelain skin. Dark skin tones might find this a bit bold and bright. It’s a really pigmented shimmery white that makes you look more awake, and it really makes your eyes look bigger. I compared this to White Frost, and this is a much more pigmented eyeshadow, and it blends really well.

• VAPOUR
Finish – Velvet
Color – Peach pink with violet pearl

Mac Shadows For Brows

I would prefer to describe it a wash of pink with a HINT of lavender. Because of the slight bluish tone, I think it pairs easily with other MAC colors such as Shale, Steamy, & Surreal.

• BLANC TYPE
Finish – Matte
Color – Creamy beige

This is a perfect matte highlight. It is great for blending out other colors or toning down anything a bit too extreme or harsh looking. It’s also one of those shades that looks classic on its own. It does a great job of covering up any discoloration under the brow.

• VANILLA
Finish – Velvet
Color – Ivory with slight pink undertones

Vanilla is a thumbs-up shade for fair, light and even medium skintones. There is a tiny bit of sparkle in the pan, but it doesn’t really translate to the eye. It’s soft and easy to work with and has good pigmentation. Orb is similar but more pinky/peachy.

• MYLAR
Finish – Satin
Color – Creamy white with shimmer but it is more like a subtle sheen

I think it is great to wear when you want to do a neutral no-makeup look. Mylar has a mostly-matte finish though MAC enlists it under satin. It can look a little chalky because of its finish and color, though the payoff is good and application is smooth.

• BRULE
Finish – Satin
Color – Soft creamy beige

Brule is a close match to most light skintones. It can be used as an all over wash or a very subtle highlight and also for for transition blending. Just like Mylar, MAC calls it a Satin, but Brule appears nearly matte on the eye.

• SHROOM
Finish – Satin
Color – Beige with shimmer

Although MAC considers it a Satin, I think it is much more like a frost. This color is extremely popular since it is a very neutral highlight, meaning it does not lean pink or yellow. If you like a noticeable shimmer in your highlights Shroom might be a good option for you!

• DAZZLELIGHT
Finish – Veluxe Pearl
Color – Soft beige

MAC says Dazzlelight is a neutral with shimmer but I think it is more of a soft beige white with a hint of warmth. Goes quite well for all light to dark-medium skintone range. Most people love to wear it in the inner corners of the eyes! This and Vanilla are my eternal fav!

• NYLON
Finish – Frost
Color – Pale gold with shimmer

It is one of the frostiest eyeshadow I have ever seen. This is a very shimmery and pigmented pale gold eyeshadow. It gives a perfect glow that almost looks ‘wet’. This eyeshadow is perfect to use as a brow highlight, in the inner corner of the eye, or to add a bit of glow to the tops of your cheek bones.

• RICEPAPER
Finish – Frost
Color – Peachy gold with shimmer

Has great texture and is very smooth! It is versatile, shows up well, and does not fade. Really brightens up the eyes. You can wear this color alone or blend which a darker shade such as ‘Cocoa’ ‘Charcoal’ or ‘Chimney’. For skintones NC 44 onwards, it might show up as a bit whitish but still is good for highlighting brow bones and inner corner of the eyes.

• NAKED LUNCH
Finish – Frost
Color – Minimal pink with shimmer

It’s a warm peachy-beige shade that comes off almost looking champagne coloured when applied. Due to it being a frost shadow it adds just the right amount of shimmer to open up the eye area and pulling a little bit of focus. You can wear it as a lid shade, but it makes a great highlight, especially if you are doing a look with other pinks! It’s pigmented yet discreet, so you can definitely wear it on an everyday basis even though it is a frost eyeshadow.

• ORB
Finish – Satin
Color – Soft peachy-beige

A soft pinky-peach beige color, Orb is ideal for warm skin tones. You can use it on the brow to warm up a look or blend away harsh lines when working with pigments. Great all over or brow bone color for neutral looks.

• BISQUE
Finish – Matte
Color – Soft muted pink beige

This functions much like Orb. It has more of a tan base, is a little deeper in color than Orb and looks especially great when paired with brown as a neutral combination.

• PHLOOF
Finish – Frost
Color – Pinky-beige

It has good color payoff and applies smoothly. It helps define and brighten eyes with a little sparkle. looks fab on lighter lovelies and darker divas alike. Because it’s neither too cool nor warm, it’s a little unlike many other highlighting MAC eyeshadows like Shroom and Vex. I think it works well on a wide range of skin tones.

• VELLUM
Finish –Lustre
Color – Iridescent white with bluish-violet shimmer-sheen

In the pan it looks like a simple white shade, but on the lid it transforms into a gorgeous off-white duochrome infused with iridescent light purple and blue. The color payoff is decent but not great, though the uniqueness of the shade tends to make it worth the effort. It has good pigmentation for a frost finish, applies smoothly.

• VEX
Finish – Frost
Color – Grayish-beige-pink with a tinge of olive-green

It has good color payoff, and it’s one of the more unique shades by MAC. A light wash all over the lid makes me look fresh and awake. Since it has a pink/green duochrome it pairs well with tons of shadows, from purples to greens to neutrals. If applied heavily, might look stark for skintones beyond NC 40.

• WHITE FROST
Finish – Frost
Color – Shimmery soft white

It has a smooth feel. Some people have color payoff issues with this shade. I find it to be fairly buttery and blendable. The shimmer is subtle, and keeps the color from looking chalky unlike matte whites. I sometimes use it for lighting up dark shadows and blending harsher colors together. But dark-medium beauties, proceed with caution as it might look a bit too light.

• GRAIN
Finish – Satin
Color – Soft, warm beige

It’s like a lighter version of MAC Arena. Goes with almost anything and everything. This is the perfect nude shadow that gives a no-makeup correction to the eyelids. Lovely low sheen, no glitter here. It really seems to brighten my eyes without being glittery or shiny.

• RETROSPECK
Finish –Lustre
Color – Paled gold

Really nice subtle beige gold shade. It’s a little rough and a tad bit glittery but the color is beautiful. It has a slightly gritty texture which makes it prone to fall out. This is a perfect highlight color for a brown/gold/black smokey eyes.

• HUSH
Finish – Frost
Color – Peach-pink with a subtle iridescence

It is a light peachy beige, with subtle pink duochrome effect. Sheerer color than one would expect after seeing the pan. A lovely brightness comes through without any noticeable shimmer, MAC has got the balance just right and it is very useable as a highlighter, all over lid colour or a good base.

• JEST
Finish – Frost
Color – Light-medium peach

Mac Brow Gel

Jest which has a more pinkish tone than Naked Lunch. It’s a frosty peachy beige, blendable and brightens up eye area. Medium to dark skintones will find this to be a good highlighter.

• SAY YEAH
Finish – Veluxe Pearl
Color – Apricot pink with a golden shimmer-sheen

Mac Shadows For Brows Before And After

Incredible color. When I want a glowy natural look I use this. comparatively, Expensive Pink but far more peachy. It has a hint of pink and yellow, but not much at allIt’s quite shimmery, and the color payoff/pigmentation is good. Again, a blessing for medium to dark skintones.

Most of you may have tried quite a few of these shades. Which one is your favorite?
