Make-up look | MAC Metallic Nude look with the Amorous Alloy Extra Dimension Eyeshadow & Our Secret Fluidline

You know what they say: you either put the focus on your lips and go for bold lipstick, or you concentrate on your eye make-up and draw attention to your eyes. I already wrote a piece on lips earlier this week in my review on the new MAC Huggable Lipcolour lipsticks, so today it’s time to focus on the eyes. At the beginning of January MAC Cosmetics launched its new Metallic Nude collection here in Switzerland, and I got my hands on two products from that collection: the MAC Extra Dimension Eyeshadow in Amorous Alloy, and the MAC Fluidline in Our Secret. I’ve been experimenting all week with my new two MAC goodies, and today I’m showing you my favorite look, based on the MAC Metallic Nude campaign picture. That means smokey eyes with a metallic twist, and nude skin and lips!

MAC Extra Dimension Eyeshadow in Amorous Alloy

Amorous Alloy is a warm brownish copper shade with a metallic finish. The color looks mouthwateringly gorgeous in the pan – I mean, just look at it! – and since most of my MAC eyeshadow is Pro refill eyeshadow it’s nice to finally have a MAC eyeshadow with a pretty print. Amorous Alloy is easy to apply and has minimal fall-out, and the coverage is nice and even. With a good eyeshadow primer underneath the color stays perfectly put from AM to PM.

Our Secret is a lovely warm chocolaty brown shade with a metallic finish. Like all MAC Fluidlines, Our Secret is waterproof, very long-lasting and easy to apply in one smooth movement. For my Magnetic Nude look I used Our Secret on my lower and upper lash line, but you can also use it as an eyeshadow base and maybe even as eyeshadow on its own, kind of like a MAC paint pot.

Alright, enough talk, let’s check out the look!

Pretty cute, right*? I personally really love a smokey eye + nude lip combo, so this is a look I’ll definitely wear again in the future!
* I initially wanted to copy the model’s pose from the campaign shot, but that didn’t turn out very well… giant nostrils + an about-to-sneeze look = not very attractive

The MAC Magnetic Nude collection has been available since January in all MAC stores as well as in the MAC online store. The MAC Extra Dimension Eyeshadow in Amorous Alloy and the MAC Fluidline in Our Secret will set you back 32 and 26 CHF.

  4. Echt een mooie oogschaduw! Past perfect bij je haar. Mooie look.

  5. Fluidline look great!! under the eyes it looks so perfect, like it a lot :-)

  6. Wauw, je hebt een prachtige look gemaakt! De kleuren spreken mij enorm aan.

  7. Je hebt er een hele mooie look mee gemaakt! Hou wel van dat smokey :)

  8. Prachtige look heb je gemaakt! :)

  9. Je hebt een gave look gemaakt!

  10. De oogschaduw is heel mooi! Vooral ook het extra dimension printje erin :)

  11. Pretty cute yesss! I never thought dark eyes would go with that colour but you did a great job :D and how pretty is that?! <3 I need to start replacing some of my pretties because I abuse this word 0_o

  12. Wat een mooie producten en je look.. gorgeous. Ik vind jou nog mooier dan het model hihi. Ik meen het echt!! Ik vind je haar kleur ook super mooi. You rock girl!

  13. I love both on you, but the eyeshadow is probably too red for me. The liner on the other hand: insane!

  14. Mooie look ! De fluidlines van Mac vind ik echt super. Ze blijven zo goed zitten.

  15. Super super mooi is dat en ook je haar is ineens zo anders van kleur,wauw ja prachtig!!!

  16. Wow such an elegant look hun. Great job.

  17. Wauw wat een prachtige look! :)

  18. Wow, wat een mooie look! De kleuren staan je erg mooi!

  19. You look goregeous! Lovely make-up!

  20. Oh my word!!! This look is gorgeous on you! That eye shadow is so lovely, I might give it a try oven a primer since I don’t do too well with MAC, even the fluidline doesn’t stay on my eyes. I wish I had non deep set, non droppy eye lids like yours!!! :(

  21. Wat een prachtige look, heel subtiel maar wel echt supermooi <3

  22. Wat een prachtige look, heel subtiel maar wel echt supermooi

  23. Prachtig! je ziet er fantastisch uit! Super mooie look en ik hou echt van warme, bruine kleuren dus dat kan wel eens in mijn kast belanden ;)

  24. The model has no tiny facial hair or pores. She’s been airbrushed like crazy. I’m betting her big horsey nostrils were photoshopped together, so I wouldn’t feel bad that your own pic didn’t turn out the way you wanted.

  25. Wow! You really do look amazeballz with these two products. I like the MAC Fluidlines, and IMO can’t really go wrong with them:)

  26. omg, ik ben verliefd. wat prachtig! ik had deze ook al zien liggen, maar tja.. weer een bruine kleur dacht ik. Nu ik het zo zie… WIL IK HET!!! wat doe je me aan :P echt gorgeous!

  27. Wauw, heel erg mooi gedaan, echt goed gelukt! Het zijn prachtige producten. x

  28. Wat een prachtige look heb je weer gemaakt!

  29. Coucou ma belle
    Ce maquillage est top pour tout les jours je trouve et ses mèches plus clair dans tes cheveux te vont très bien :)

  30. Mooie look heb je gemaakt! Zowel de oogschaduw als paint pot zien er prachtig uit

  31. I love MAC products and in particular their eye shadows. This new line sounds great. Seems like it blends well. Much like the model in the picture I have very deep set eyes, and this makes putting on shadow a bit tricky. Because they are so deep, there is always this spot that gets missed right below the brow bone and no end of blending helps the shadow just does’t go there. I think with a creamier shadow it may help with this. But you did a stupendous job!

  32. Schitterende look met hele mooie kleuren make-up ;-)

  33. Wow! This is a gorgous look! It’s like ‘wearable smoky’ :-) The rest of your makeup looks fabulous in the photos, too!

  34. Gorgeous! I so need to learn eye makeup from you!

  35. Aha, I like your way write…big nostrils and so in :) but the metallics looks very nice in you! Mac is great!

  36. amazing colours, i can’t get enought of Mac make up!

  37. LOVE. I have the eye shadow, but that liner! I think I need it now!

  38. Welke haarkleur heb je in je haar? dat beetje roodachtig, mooi!!

  39. I usually play up my lips but it is good to mix it up and play up my eyes from time to time… especially when I have just had my eyes waxed… I just need some new great eye colors… :)

  40. Love all d colors so warm..

  41. I want to eat the Amorous Alloy, not put it on my eyes! I like this smokey eye better than with black.

  42. the eyeshadow looks amazing!

  43. Where do they come up with names for these? They always sound so enticing and just make you wanna buy a shit load of the product. I always wanna do the looking down the camera pose too, I think it looks really cool – when the models do it. Then I try it and it’s just horrible.:D Why is that?? I’m sure they photoshop the shit out of the picture.

  44. I’m not really the one who goes for the eye-makeups, but yours does look great! I’d love to try out more MAC products, but I can’t find them anywhere in St.Gallen + the’re so expensive :(

  45. Mooi!

    PS: Doe jij al mee aan mijn winactie? :)

  46. I need this eyeshadow!

  47. Amazing! Especially the looks <33 X Anna

  48. Gorgeous look.
    Love the eyeshadow and lipstick on you.

  49. wauuuuw gorgeous gedaan zeg <3

  50. Heel mooie look! Ik vind het printje van de oogschaduw ook erg mooi, way to go Mac!

  51. C’est super joli!!! Ca fait ressortir tes yeux!!!! Magnifiques!

  52. Mooie look :D en echt mooie kleurtjes van MAC!

  53. Zoals altijd echt prachtig gedaan! Zien er fijne Mac producten uit! x

  54. I really like these colours on you. BTW did you get some highlights? Your hair looks really nice!

  55. It’s gorgeous! I love MAC’s nude collections – such beautiful neutrals.

  56. The smokey eye + nude lip comb is beautiful!

  57. Very lovely colours. They suit your eyes and hair very well. Beautiful look.

  58. Amorous Alloy looks so pretty, it wears gorgeous on you! I think the eyeshadow + lip combo is perfect! :)

  59. Mooie post! Is de oogschaduwkleur vergelijkbaar met Woodwinked? Die oogschaduwkleur is namelijk de rood voor mij en doet me er erg moe uitzien. Is dat met Amorous Alloy ook zo? De kleur lijkt wel koeler van tint dan Woodwinked.

    Great choice! Amorous Alloy just looks gorgeous on you ♥

  61. I should not have seen this. Now I want the eyeshadow!!!!!!!!!!!!!! that’s exactly the kind of colors I LOVE!
    Btw, I went to the Estée Lauder presentation in Bern today (I have to work next Monday so I couldn’t go at the pres in Lausanne) and Regina told me about you. Too bad you can’t go ;_;

    • Oh she did? Yeah, work :-( It’s cool that you got to go though. I’ve seen some photos of the first presentation and it looked great.

      • haha yeah, she just said you couldn’t come in Lausanne because just as me, you had to work. Too bad! Yes, the presentation was pretty cool with much interesting information! I’ll write something on the blog soon :)

  62. Gorgeous! Gorgeous! Gorgeous!

  63. This is such a pretty look!
