HELP...Too Many Eye Shadows!

I'm ashamed to admit that I have a big collection of MAC eye shadows.  Some I use all the time, others not so much.  Going through my makeup drawer gave me some inspiration to put together some combinations.  If you have a bunch of eye shadows sitting in your cabinet and don't know what to pair them with, then this post is for you! Oh by the way...I also swatched the colors so you can see how pretty they are.  Enjoy!

Crystal - inner corner / tear duct
Parfait Amour - center of the lid
Beauty Marked - lightly on the outer lid /crease
Blacktrack - to line upper lash line



Left to right : Crystal, Parfait Amour, Beauty Marked, Blacktrack
*Each shade was swatched dry.  Except for Blacktrack which is a an ultra smooth eye liner gel.

Painterly Paint Pot - on the lid as a base
Retrospeck - on the lid
Charcoal Brown - in the crease
Shroom - to highlight on the brow bone
Blacktrack - to line upper lash line



Left to right: Painterly Paint Pot, Retrospeck, Charcoal Brown, Shroom, Blacktrack
* Each shade was swatched dry.  Except for Blacktrack and Painterly Paint pot.

Mink Pink - on the lid
Carbon - on outer crease
Espresso - on inner crease
Shroom - to highlight on the brow bone
Blacktrack - to line upper lash line


Left to right: Mink Pink, Carbon, Espresso, Shroom, Blacktrack
*Each shade was swatched dry.  Except for Blacktrack which is a an ultra smooth eye liner gel.

As you can see I've put these colors to work.  I would never suggest anything I wouldn't use myself.  Have any MAC eyeshadow combinations you would like to share?  Post a comment and let me know.
