MAC Hey, Sailor! Eye Shadow in Barefoot Review and Swatches

MAC Hey, Sailor! Eye Shadow in Barefoot ($16) is not your typical gold eye shadow; it has a unique brassy tone that sets it apart from the crowd. I wonder if it was meant to evoke the brass medals and stars that decorate the shoulders of high-ranking Navy men...

Just because this eye shadow is brassy doesn't mean it's drab. MAC Hey, Sailor! Eye Shadow in Barefoot is very bright with a lot of yellow. The unique color makes me feel like I'm wearing something bolder than the gold shadows I typically favor.

For this eye look, I applied MAC Hey, Sailor! Eye Shadow in Barefoot to the lid and blended upwards. I used Urban Decay Buck to contour in the crease and Urban Decay Virgin to highlight the browbone and inner corners of my eyes.

  2. Great color Nicole. I agree that it goes really well with your beautiful eyes :-). It's also exactly the type of shade I use for my eyes (on the rare occasions that I actually wear makeup these days).

    Anway, just stopping by from the SITS Sharefest. Have a great holiday weekend!
