Neutral Eye Using MAC Coco Pigment


MAC Coco pigment





One of my favorite MAC pigments is Coco. It's a limited edition pigment and it is very hard to find and coveted, but it is so pretty. I have yet to find a pigment as nice on my skintone as this is. It is a cool taupe and it has lots of shimmer, almost metallic without being frosty when foiled (applied damp). It is similar to Subtle pigment but Coco is a tad lighter, and also to Impassioned Solar Bits, but Coco is cooler. Love this pigment and I hope MAC repromotes this soon!

I also used my favorite browns from MAC: Magnetic Fields, Brun and Smoke and Diamonds, a taupey grey shade with beautiful green and gold highlights. Beautiful. Here's a step by step. All products MAC unless otherwise stated.


Apply Urban Decay primer potion in Sin all over lid and browbone, and lower lashline. Using your finger, apply and smooth Layin' Low paint pot over lid.


Using a stiff shader brush like the 239, apply Coco on the lid foiled using Fix+.


Using the Sonia Kashuk blender brush, apply Smoke and Diamonds on outer V.


Using the same brush, apply Magnetic Fields on outer lid. Blend with the 224 brush.





Like so.


Using the blender brush, apply Bronze on the outer V and blend using the 224.


Using the blender brush, create depth to the crease and outer V using Brun.


Blend with the 224. Apply Nylon on the browbone to highlight using Stila brush No. 5.


Apply L'Oreal Lineur Intense liquid liner (felt tip) on upper lashline. Apply Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Zero to tightline. Apply Chromagraphic pencil in NW25/NC30 on waterline. Apply Red Cherry falsies #15. Apply mascara.
