15 MAC Eyeshadows to Start Your Collection

If you are anything like me when I first started purchasing MAC, you are probably overwhelmed by the 165+ eyeshadows that MAC currently offers. If you are just starting your makeup collection, you may be wondering where to begin. There is a wide spectrum of colors and finishes to choose from. I tried to provide not only a variety of colors, but of textures as well.

This list will provide a well-rounded start to your soon to be makeup addiction!
