While going through my stash the other day, I noticed I have so many plums and berry shades and then thought of sharing them in series , this way you will have an idea how much am into this wonderful color which is Perfect for Fall or say so called FALL Season or Autumn as we say here which begins around September month. While covering this I hope to create a CRAVING for the color and am sure would end up buying so many things with your recommendations … what say??
The first beauty product to feature here in this series is AWESOME eye shadow by MAC and its PLUM DRESSING, which is described as Pinky-plum with metal and has Veluxe Pearl finish. It is Plumy mauve color with prominent pink undertones, veluxe pearl finish makes it easy to work with, and it has nice subtle shimmer in it although it is not at all frosty. Plum Dressing leans towards cooler tone and one might find it difficult to go well but if paired wisely it might work for warmer skin tone gals too.
I have used this color in various looks , it goes well with gold’s and silvers and even bronze I must say , although the easiest way to pair this wonderful color is , apply MAC Indian wood paint pot all over the lids and then add this on outer corners and finish with brow bone highlighter. I so love the 2 min combo and it work every time and no fuss look; I have added a pic for reference.
The color is easy to blend and build although you might have to layer this to show it but that way you will never go wrong with the application … right?? The color is good shade for beginners as this is most versatile shade of Plum eye shadow which will not make your eyes bruised.
Some color combinations to pair this with –
Goldmine all over the lip, Plum Dressing on outer corners and Passionate in the crease for perfect sunset look.
Plum Dressing all over the lid with Carbon in the crease for perfect Plum Smokey eyes.
Plum Dressing 2/3rd of the outer lid, Hush in 1/3rd of inner lid, Sketch in the crease and Teal liner on water line.
One of the best plum color eye shadows from MAC, this one top the charts with awesome finish and even lovelier color.
Have you tried this color?? What all shades you like to pair this with??
