Chocolate Brown Smokey eyes using MAC Chocolate Brown pigment - I feel extremely happy when I rediscover products lying somewhere back in my stash

Hello Everyone, 

Hope you all are happy and healthy. 

While I was just going through my considerably large make-up collection which I have made over last couple of years, I found this beautiful pigment from MAC called Chocolate Brown. I have this pigment from a long time and didn't use it for like more than a year. I feel ashamed that I didn't use this pigment much as I used to love it so much. This pigment is so versatile that you can use it round the year, just pair an appropriate lipstick/ blush to suit the season. Anyways, I am happy that I could use it today to create a smokey eye look which is perfect for summers. 

Chocolate Brown, Chocolate copper/ bronze, is a BEAUTIFUL shimmery rich brown shade with red / burgundy undertones. This is an absolute stunner shade. I feel like kicking my a** for not using it much for such a long time. 

Here are few pictures and swatches of this beautiful pigment. 

For today's look I have paired it with a coral blush and nude pink lips. 

Here is the list of products used to create the look: 

  • Chanel Perfection Lumiere Foundation (review here)
  • MAC Pro Longwear concealer in NC42 
  • MAC Studio Finish concealer in NC42
  • MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural - Medium Dark Shade
  • MAC Bronzer in Refined Golden 
  • Nars blush in Torrid (review here)
  • Dior Powder Highlighter in Amber Diamond (review here)
  • Urban Decay Primer Potion 
  • MAC Eyeshadows/ Pigments: Texture, Handwritten, Vanilla Pigment, Chocolate Brown Pigment
  • Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner pencil in Zero, Inglot Kohl in Black (review here)
  • Maybelline Th e Falsies Drama mascara 
  • Chanel Rouge Coco Hydrating Lipstick in Organdi Rose
  • MAC Lipglass in Nymphette 
Here are a few simple steps to create this smokey eye look using Chocolate Brown Pigment
  • After priming your lids, apply UD 24/7 Zero eye pencil on outer 2/3rd of upper lash line and smudge smudge and wing it out. 
  • Apply Texture e/s in the crease and blend it up to the brow bone
  • Apply Handwritten eyeshadow in the outer V 
  • Apply Chocolate Brown pigment on the lid 
  • Apply Vanilla pigment in the tear duct and on the highest point of brow arch
  • Finished it with black kohl in the water line and black mascara
Here are a few more pictures of the look and some close-up of eyes: 

I hope you all liked the pigment and the smokey eye look. Are you going to give this pigment a try? Have you rediscovered a product from your stash lately which you used to love a lot? Do share your stories with me in the comments below, I would love to hear and know who all are with me in this crime of collecting & forgetting make-up products. 

Hope you all had a great Thursday and wishing you a great Friday and weekend ahead. 

Lots of Love

  1. Hey Eesha,
    The color of that pigment is really gorgeous. I've been trying to look for an eye product that comes off really warm like that for those chocolate colored smokey eyes, but every time I try to create the look with warm brown eyeshadows from my collection, it always blends & smokes out to almost an ash tone that I really don't want :( I'm going to have to try this & see if I have any luck with it. Is it MAC pro or just regular?? Looks gorgeous on you.
