Spotlight On: MAC Mylar

mylarΒ Finish: Satin / Creamy-white with shimmer

Mylar is usually used as a highlight under the brow bone for an added pop of definition, but for this post I wanted to show you ways you can wear it on the lid. It does make for a great eyeshadow in neutral, everyday looks. I find this one to be very pigmented, buttery and very easy to blend. I typically like to use it on the innermost portion of the eyes, but it’s also real nice when placed on the center of the lid to help brighten up a darker look (as in look #4). If you don’t have Mylar and you want to create some of these looks, a shade like MAC Shroom, UD Venus, UD Bootycall, or UD Virgin would work real well in its place, too. πŸ˜‰

  1. Pretty as always. πŸ™‚ I have so many like this one that I think I’ll pass. I really like # 4. Beautiful! I’ll have to try that one.

  2. I use mylar for setting my concealer and highliting underneath my eyes ( instead of MAC emphasize )

    1. At the Mac store they didn’t have emphasize and suggested me Mylar and its works perfectly. So its a eyeshadow and a highlighter. 2 for 1 πŸ™‚

  3. Thanks so much for this Spotlight!
    It made me realize Mylar was just the shadow I have hunted for lighten up my inner eye area.
    Bought it today and extended my fav natural look:
    Mylar on inner eye area, Omega on inner lid, Espresso on outer lid and crease, Cork as transition and Brule to blend.
    Will go for look #5 tomorrow.

  4. I just got bamboo and I actually like it better then soft brown, amazingly. I am NC20, blue eyes and have a lot of yellow undertones, and soft brown I have to apply very lightly because when I use too much it shows up and makes me look “scary,” and “mean” as my husband puts it. I have a lot of issues with darker shadows making me look “mean.” Lol.
