Let's pretend hell just froze over and I had to pick 15 neutral eyeshadows to use until the end of time... dramatic, but go with it... Or we could be a little more realistic and say that these are my most used MAC eyeshadows and ones that I would recommend to someone just starting out with MAC!

In previous posts I have gone into detail about each one of these eyeshadows, so I'm keeping the description quite minimal in this one. Have a look around my blog to see more indepth info, or just leave a comment below and I'd be happy to answer any questions!

(L-R) Vanilla, Dazzlelight, Naked Lunch, All That Glitters, Woodwinked
Omega, Wedge, Soft Brown, Texture, Swiss Chocolate
Patina, Satin Taupe, Sable, Bronze, Smut

VANILLA (Velvet) -- my holy grail highlight... Vanilla is an ivory with suble pink undertones that applies nearly matte.

DAZZLELIGHT (Veluxe Pearl) -- pearly highlight that can be used on the inner corner, brow or cheek.

NAKED LUNCH (Frost) -- beautiful "minimal pink with shimmer" shade that I usually wear on the lid.

ALL THAT GLITTERS (Veluxe Pearl) -- champagne shade with the most gorgeous texture and pigmentation.

WOODWINKED (Veluxe Pearl) -- metallic orangey gold that looks beautiful paired with warm browns.

OMEGA (Matte) -- ashy taupe color that I use for my brows.

WEDGE (Matte) -- versatile midtone taupey brown that looks gorgeous in the crease or as a transition. If your skin is darker than NC25 I would suggest Cork.

SOFT BROWN (Matte) -- warm midtone brown that is perfect as a transition color.

TEXTURE (Velvet) -- very warm orangey brown that I typically use under my lower lashline or to warm up the crease.

SWISS CHOCOLATE (Matte) -- gorgeous reddish brown perfect for the crease and outer v

PATINA (Frost) -- antiqued gold with a beautiful green and pink duochrome that is a great natural lid shade.

SATIN TAUPE (Frost) -- purpley taupe... and absolutely stunning!

SABLE (Frost) -- bronzy purpley brown. The frost is quite minimal and this shade can be used on the lid or in the crease.

BRONZE (Frost) -- true bronze color that looks great on everyone!

SMUT (Velvet) -- beautiful charcoal gray with purple and brown tones. I frequently use this in place of a matte brown or matte black. Great as liner or for the outer v.

Which would make the cut for your Top 15?
