Rediscovering MAC Patina


   Hey all, do any of you have that ONE fool-proof look? Like you know you can have overslept, be hung-over or lazy, but you can pull it together and look presentable? Here, I present THAT look... This is how I usually look when I've only got 5 minutes to get ready.  Not too shabby, right?



Here I've used:
  • NYX eyeshadow base in Skin Tone
  • La Splash Eye Sparkle Mineral Eyeshadows (mouthful!) in Baja Sand on the eyelids and browbone
  • MAC Patina in the crease
  • Cailyn gel liner in black on top lid and waterline.  I usually go for a cat-eye unless I'm on the train.
  • Benefit "They're Real" mascara
  • NYX eyebrow cake powder in Taupe/Ash.  Here I used the darker color.
   I've owned MAC Patina for awhile but had forgotten about it.  I'm so glad I have it back in my life, it's such a pretty crease color.  In case you were curious, it has a frost finish, so it goes perfectly with shimmers.

What's your go-to routine?  Any must-have products?

  2. Gorgeous! I might have to pick up MAC Patina. My go-to "5 minute" look is MAC Dazzlelight (HG highlighter for me) on the browbone, inner corners, and a touch across the lid, and Satin Taupe in the crease and under the eye. If I have time I sneak in a bit of fluidliner in Blacktrack. Mascara to finish, of course!

  7. I own Patina but can never get it to work for me. I loved the color in the pan but it has such little color payoff, I never reach for it :( Maybe mine was just a bad batch, the color looks awesome on you!

    1. Thanks, I used to get frustrated with Patina before I learned about eyeshadow primers. Also I realized it was always going to be a subtle color.
