For my first day at my new company (on Tuesday), I went with a cautiously colorful look. I shouldn’t have worried because there was no problem with me wearing color at all. I used MAC Trax on my lid, and MAC Patina in my crease and along my lower lash line. I think both of those shades work really well with my eye color. Also? I love MAC’s Velvet finish, which is what Trax is. I just adore it.

It’s no surprise, I love it!!! Your hair’s looking good too!
Rawr thank you!
This combo is totally gorgeous on you! I LOVE Trax and I feel like sometimes it gets a bad rap. I never really understood why. It goes so well with so many colors. Sometimes there’s a bit of fallout but there is with any shadow that is partially glittery. Sometimes it comes out a little pigment lacking, but as you’ve shown here you can certainly build the color (and the base sometimes makes a huge difference). Confession: I actually don’t own any of the other colors you mentioned (other than Blacktrack). I think I may need to add to my “Will buy in the future” list.
Yay thanks Styrch! I’ve not had problems with Trax, but I do really adore it
Gorgeous!! And how great that you can wear more color now!
How did your first day go?
It was great!
You look so cute! I love the hair clips. I only own like 3 MAC eyeshadows, but you’ve made me want to pick up both Patina and Trax. Oh, and Hi Phaedra! She always has to be close to you doesn’t she?
Thank you Jessi!
Yay for a new job- I think the fact that you can wear color again is a good sign! Good luck <3
What a great color combination! It looks amazing with your hair It’s always a nice feeling when your work lets you be yourself, to an extent. I work in education but that doesn’t stop me from wearing colors on my eyes! My kids love seeing what color my nails are for the week
That’s awesome Zelda!
So pretty! Good luck with the new job

I knew your first day at your job was coming up, I don’t think I knew exactly which day though. I hope it went really well.
Great look! Bronze and purple-ish shadows are so beautiful together.
Thanks Kimberly, it went well!
this is one of my favorite looks that you’ve ever done – it’s so beautiful on you, the colors really emphasize and flatter your eyes. i love that it’s both colorful and subtle at once.
