mac tartan tale golden crown eyeshadow look

Hello! How are you? I recieved such a lovely gift from my lil sister for Christmas - she got me one of the single pot Mac Tartan Tale eyeshadows and because she's my sister and she knows me inside out she picked the most gorgeous pale gold sparkly shade. It's got that lovely patterning print on the front of the eyeshadow though and I really don't want to ruin it! Anyway, I did and I thought i'd share it with you. As i work full time in retail now I mostly have to stick to soft, classic make up looks. This eyeshadow makes a little bling of sparkle to a soft brown taupe look and I wanted to show you how easily it is done.

First up, the eye look i've been wearing to work most days:

And here's a lovely photo of the eyeshadow in question:

So for the look I used:
MAC Paintpot in Rubenesque
MAC eyeshadows in Golden Crown, Sable and Smut
Topshop crayon in Sun Shower
MAC Opuash mascara
MAC Feline Kohl Power

 Rubenesque Paint Pot

Clockwise - Golden Crown, Smut, Sable

Opulash, Sun Shower and my battered loved Feline

I love this look because it's literally so soft and wearable. I think any skin tone could pull it off beautifully because of the soft golden tones in the Golden Crown eyeshadow and the red undertones of Sable. I love it! So quick and easy to do aswell, took me about 5 minutes, perfect for the early morning just before work (when i'm usually all sleepy!)


What did you think of the Tartan Tale collection? What eye looks do you wear to your work? Do you like the look I created, would you wear something similar? Link me to any posts you have on either of these, i'd love to read them!
Much love, Zozo xxxxx


  1. Oh I love this! I never wear eyshadow cos I'm too lazy basically, but I do lik to make an effort for nights out and I like brown/neutral smokey eyes bestso will definintely need to try this one. It's so pretty.

  2. Love this look, a lot. I used to wear gold makeup a lot and don't any more - now I really think I should start again!

  3. I love gold and brown looks they are gorgeous. I noticed in a previous post you had your ear stretched (or it at least looked like a plug) a post on that and how you did it would be cool :) x

  4. Could you do a video on how you achieved the look? I've tried half a dozen times but it never looks as good :/
    Awesome post and look though xxx
