One eyeshadow I can’t live without
As a beauty editor and writer for the past (OMG) almost 20 years, I’ve been very fortunate to always have so much skincare and makeup on hand that I rarely have to buy anything unless there’s something specific I want to try. But despite having drawers and cabinets full of stuff, there are a few products that I go back to over and over again—even if that means actually purchasing it. In addition to Stila “Kitten” (which any beauty maven has or had had at some point), I’ve had M.A.C’s “All That Glitters” in my rotation for at least 15 years.
Why do I love this eyeshadow so much? First, the texture (as with most M.A.C shadows) makes it super easy to apply and blend. You can get a light wash of color with a fluffy brush or more intense color with a denser brush. And then there’s the color… Billed as a beige with gold pearl, it’s totally neutral but far from boring, and it has just the right amount of shimmer.
Truth be told, I almost always wear it alone (rather than blending with other shadows) and it’s become my daytime go-to when I don’t want to give even the slightest bit of thought to my eye “look.” If I want to dial it up a bit, all it takes is a little eyeliner and I’m good to go. Get one for yourself and you will be, too!
