Okay what I'm curious about is the eye makeup. You can't see it clearly in this pic, but go here

"A Plot Against Lord Marshall"

I'd screen cap it, but it won't let me. You'll see her eye makeup as soon as it starts. I'm seeing hints of bronze/gold on that shadow... That's not "flat black" but I can't tell what it is... can anyone help, since I hafta duplicate her makeup for a costume?

It is definitely black with a bronze/copper look sheen. You could create that by blending a couple of MAC pigments together and applying them wet.

I'm thinking Matte Black mixed with Gold or Rose Gold would create that color.

Old Gold and Black, would those two work? Or do you think I should stick to your suggestions of Rose Gold and Matte Black?
(I've never used MAC, so this should be quite the adventure)

here's a some pics from CarolineSwing's pigment collection of makeupalley.com:

you can look at Old Gold and Rose Gold and see what you prefer.
If you go into a MAC store that sells them you could probably get samples of both for free. I think either would work. From what i remember the "Black" pigment has a bit of shine to it which is why i suggested going with "Matte Black." The movie clip looks very matte to me ;)

Another option - buy a gold and a black eyeshadow the drugstore, crumble them up and mix them together in the right proportion (I'd say 9:1 black:gold)
it'd be cheaper and if you applied it with a wet brush it'd look just as good :)

I'm too lazy to go all the way out to Boca and go to MAC *smiles* so I figured instead of buying them seperately, I'd just got the four. Thank you for the link to what the pigments looks like, it helps a ton :) I figured I'd use the violet and platinum for other things anyway so I was getting a better deal for four for ten that buying them indivudually for 3-4 a pop. If the black is too shiny (I'll e-mail the girl and ask), I'll dull it down some. It doesn't have to be perfect, but i just wanted the shade. Thanks so much for the advice!

I can't view the video due to a firewall, but for eyeshadow of that depth, pigments would be a good way to go.

Try this site:

They have heaps and heaps of pigment shades. Email them with the link and I'm sure they can recommend the right shade for you. The best thing is though - you can ask for a kit complimentary swatches of 20 shades. I've just placed an order from them, the customer service is excellent.

You get 1oz of pigment for $12 which is much cheaper than MAC. Plus - if you want 6 shades, you can create a kit for $60.

I find pigments work best with some sort of base also - MMU Eye Rescue is a good one - apply the pigment straight onto the eye rescue before it sets. Also, MAC Mixing Medium is great for mixing your pigments.
