Craig's Last Beauty Post: All About Eyes

It's his last day, and he can rant if he wants to. Adieu, glorious Intern Craig! I miss you already.

Ladies, we need to have a discussion. Stop wearing scary eyeshadows! Today I'm breaking away from my usual love of Sephora and heading across the street to the MAC kiosk in Macy's Herald Square. MAC's reputation obviously precedes it and for good reason: amazing makeup and great prices for the quality of the product. It's no surprise that most makeup artists rely strictly on MAC.

I'm in awe of the new tartan collection just because the shadows are just too much fun to look at. My favorite color is definitely the Golden Crown. This light taupe is a color that every woman (or drag queen) should have in her makeup bag. You can sweep this all over the lid if you're in a hurry or use it as a highlighter along the brow bone if you'll be using other colors for a more dramatic look.

If you like to rock the boat with your eye color, then take a look at the mineralize eye shadow duo in Fresh Green. You can mix the colors together for an awesome mix of greens, golds, blues, and browns, or you can use them separately to create some depth on the lid. Combine with a gold or sheer shimmer to complete the look.

If you're constantly on the go and don't have time to apply and blend, then perhaps you should opt for the shadestick in Shimmersand. It's a light shimmery brown and can be applied directly to the lid and blended with your finger as you ride the train to work. It's not the most ideal makeup situation, but for the woman on the go one must make compromises.
