EOTD: MAC Tartan Tale Follow Your Fantasy eyeshadow X Canmake Perfect Brown Eyes

As you may realize, I seldom do EOTD :P This is because I'm an amateur with eyeshadows and I don't know how to experiment/mix-match vibrant colors. Plus the art of blending eyeshadows is quite hard to master for a dummy like me. This can explain why most shadows in my stash is neutrals, lol!

Since one of you requested an EOTD with MAC Tartan Tale Follow Your Fantasy eyeshadow (swatches here), I figured I'd pair it with Canmake's Perfect Brown Eyes palette in #03 Glitter Brown (review and swatches here). And here you go :)

Eyes lined only with Revlon ColorStay eyeliner in Charcoal, concealed with TheBalm's TimeBalm concealer (it creased, Ouch.)

Products and shades I used are marked with red ticks.

First, I used the top left shade (a pearly ivory shade) on the Canmake palette to highlight the brow bone, from inside of the brow to the end of it. I then swiped Follow Your Fantasy all over lid. Then I used the bottom right shade (bronzey brown) on the palette to blend from lashline to the crease. Finally, dap the top right shade (a deep khaki brown) on the palette on the outer corner of the eye. It wasn't so obvious in the first pic so I put more color in the second pic marked with the red circle.

The colors in the palette contain some micro-glitter but they didn't show up much in the pic ^_^ so I guess this look is very safe-for-work.

Ta-da! This is it!

Speaking of eyeshadows, what brushes do you use for applying eyeshadows and blending eyeshadows? Do you use the same brush or separate ones? What brands are the brushes? Please share :D

and... Happy Halloween!


  1. I can't wait to get my hands on mac's tartan collection - it looks so pretty :)
    Great look x

  2. hmmm I didn't have tt problem with the teal palette from Visee's Blackish Forming eyes.. But I admit i haven't played around with tt very much.. My fave is still the Glam Nude Eyes.. neutrals are so much easier to work with =)

    I'm not really into Halloween, but it's kinda funny seeing ppl get dressed up =)
