I thought it would be helpful to put a list together of 10 MAC eyeshadows that would work great with fair/light skin. If you would like to check out the Top 3 MAC Blushes for Fair Skin, click HERE.

Top 10 MAC Lipsticks for Fair Skin

I prefer using the pro pans because it is more cost effective and MUCH easier to store. These are the shadows I think are most important when starting your collection, so enjoy! Click on the pictures to enlarge!

VANILLA (Velvet)

Vanilla is a beautiful ivory with slight pink undertones and my Holy Grail highlight!! It is amazing at blending out crease work for fair skin and never looks ashy/chalky. Although there appears to have a little sparkle in the pan, it applies nearly matte.
DAZZLELIGHT (Veluxe Pearl)
Dazzlelight is a shimmery highlight that leans slightly yellow. I typically wear this in the inner tear duct area but it also looks great as a browbone highlight.


I adore Naked Lunch! This shade is absolutely beautiful on the lid or as a brow bone highlight. It is described as a minimal pink with shimmer, but on my skin tone it looks like a shimmery beige that almost looks wet.  

KID (Veluxe)

My go-to transition shade. I highly recommend this shadow for ladies that like to use matte crease shades. This shade has a warmth to it and helps to bring a sophistication to many of my looks.

CORK (Satin)

Cork is an ideal crease shade. MAC says that it is a Satin, but when applied it is a medium brown matte shade. .


This eyeshadow is absolutely beautiful! It is a taupe with strong purple undertones. Also, the finish is quite metallic, so keep that in mind. I prefer wearing it on the lid because it brings out my eye color so well, but you could also use it through the crease. It may suit cooler skin tones a bit better but I think it looks gorgeous on just about anyone.

PATINA (Frost)
Patina is so complex... It is an antiqued gold color with green and pink duochrome. It is considered a frost, but I would say the texture is quite difficult to describe. I think it is more like a Satin, which is why I think this shadow works well in the crease.

BRONZE (Frost)

Bronze is absolutely perfect. It is a true bronze with shimmer, and doesn't lean red or orange, which a lot of bronze shades tend to do. The texture, pigmentation, and blendability are superb.

CLUB (Satin)

Another amazing color by MAC! I have a full review on the blog, click HERE to check it out!

HUMID (Frost)

Humid is one of the most amazing colors I have EVER found in ANY brand of makeup... If you only have one green eyeshadow, this should be it.
