Spotlight On: MAC Cork

Finish: Satin / Muted golden brown

Known Dupes: UD Buck

Cork is a beautiful, neutral shade with endless possibilities. It can be paired with a variety of colors and in a variety of ways. The matte formula applies beautifully to the skin and is even easier to blend out or into other colors. This especially looks great when paired with some of the other colors from MAC’s Matte2 shades (i.e. Tete A Tint, Brown Script, Handwritten, Brown Down, Blanc Type). I really like to dust it on the lid with a fluffy brush too, when I’m looking for a quick, easy, out-the-door look.

    1. Hi Nikke – welcome! πŸ™‚
      I’m so happy you’re enjoying the site and thank you for spreading the word!
      I appreciate your support!

  1. I have been searching extensively for a good brown color for use in the crease. There are just so many! I’m NC15 with cooler undertones and blue eyes. The main ones I’ve been considering are Cork, Omega and maybe Era. Any advise would be greatly appreciated!

  2. I am a redhead with dark brown eyes and happy to be getting instruction from a fellow sister! Too bad you do not have more freckles as this is my biggest challenge. Don’t get me wrong, I love them but It is difficult to find colours and bases that deliver the looks in tutorials as my freckles show through!

    Best described as painting a landscape on a black polka dotted canvas. My mac collection consists of bisque, era, orb, quarry, brown script, naked lunch, expensive pink, antiqued, amber lights (last 2 I find hard to get good looks out of)

    I look forward to learning from you


    1. Hi Michelle!
      Welcome! Thank you for your kind words! πŸ™‚
      Ha! I had a tremendous amount of freckles as a kid and hated them with a passion!
      I tried everything to get rid of them and finally learned wearing sunscreen and staying out of the sun would make less appear.
      So I did that from about age 15 onwards and they have significantly faded! They’re still there, but foundation covers them up thankfully.
      So, I’m sorry they’re not more visible, but I’m glad they’re faded myself! πŸ˜‰

      Painting on a polka dotted canvas – ha! Yep! I hear ya!
      So happy you’re here! And I’m glad you’re enjoying the tutorials πŸ™‚

  3. Forgot to mention how fabulous your tutorials are! I am especially pleased that you are a red head. Also, the close camera on your eyes during sessions is extremely helpful!
