Top 10 Neutral MAC Eyeshadows

Swatched from left to right as listed below.

Samoa Silk

This is a light matte peach colour ideal for blending out darker colours in the crease or all over the lid for a warm, natural every day look.

Expensive Pink 

This is a mixture of gold, pink and coral with a light shimmery finish. This colour is ideal for day or night, brush loosely over the lid for a fresh but natural pop of colour or pair with MAC’s Carbon in the crease to intensify the look for night time. I even sometimes use this as a blusher just on the apples of my cheeks for a natural glow, the shimmer in it gives a lovely fresh look.


This is a light brown, ideal as a brow colour for lighter brows or to blend out a smokey eye as its neither too light or dark.

All That Glitters

This is a gorgeous light peachy pink with a golden sheen. This colour can be worn with warmer tones for a more sultry look or with a darker colour in the crease to add some drama.


This is a bright white gold shade with a shimmer that gives an almost ‘wet’ look. This colour can be use to brighten the eyes by placing in the inner corner of the eyes, as a highlight under the brow bone or even as a highlight just along the top of the cheek bones.

Swatched from left to right as listed below.


This is a medium brown shade ideal as a crease colour and could be paired with any shade for a neutral look.


This is a gorgeous antiqued bronze/gold colour. This a good shade to be worn on its own just blended out into the crease or for a night time look can be worn with a darker colour in the crease and lots of black liner.

Satin Taupe

This is a grey/bronze shade brilliant for a wash of colour on the lid for day time or layered with a flat stiff brush, the colour is buildable and a good lid shade for a smokey eye.


This brown based shade has red and plum tones with a golden sheen to it so although neutral, is very unique and will compliment all eye colours and skin tones.

Ground Brown

This matte dark brown is good as a warm toned dark brow colour, can be used to darken the crease or smudged along the lash line to make lashes look thicker.
