Before the metropolitan Decay naked combination took the makeup world by storm, there were old-school MAC brown as well as beige neutrals like Brule, Mylar, Ricepaper, Shroom, Soba, Samoa Silk, Kid, Bamboo, Omega, Cork, Wedge, Brun, Soft brown as well as Saddle, among other shades. I might compose sonnets as well as dissertations on their incredible sauce.

MAC has a well-deserved rep for crazy vibrant shades as well as brights, however that’s just part of what they do. a few of my buddies who are less enthusiastic about makeup than I am state things like, “They’re the ones that do the crazy bright eco-friendly drag show eyeshadow, right?” as well as I’m like, um…yeah, they do a few of that, however there are likewise so lots of fantastic neutrals in the line.


Some of their long-term collection neutrals are ageless classics that women (and men) of all ages can wear.

Shoot, I hope I’m still rocking Soba when I’m 80. That’s the plan.

There is one eyeshadow in it called Bitter, a crazy green, that I never use, however all of the other shades are ones I utilize as well as love, like Brun, Mylar, Omega, Club as well as Carbon.

My default neutral look with this combination is something soft as well as defined that I do all the time with Mylar around the lid from lash line to brow bone, Omega in the crease, Brun in the outer corner as well as Carbon smudged along my upper lash line…

Then, if I’m feeling sassy, I’ll add Club on my lid on top of Mylar.
