Matte Eyes

What with the several (I mean everyday...) exams I've had over the past week and half, I haven't been wearing much shadow. No time and no point really. However, now that the weekend is upon us and the last test is done, I was allotted some time to do something. Decided to show some love to matte shades today.

Please excuse my scary brows; been neglecting them too. (big no no)
Eyes: MAC Quarry all over lid, MAC Copperplate in the crease/outer corner
Physician's Formula Eye Booster Eyeliner in black (my HG, no contest)
Maybelline The Falsies mascara in black, waterproof

Quarry and Copperplate are some of my favorite shades from MAC. Copperplate is a Matte 2 formula, which are my favorites; they are pigmented and so smooth aka easy to work with. I never used to gravitate towards matte shadows before except for the crease but I liked how this look came out. It looked interesting but professional; I think if you work in a conservative office, matte shadows would be a great thing to invest in. It's not a ton of color going on, however I think the purple undertones of Quarry make it more fun than say a wash of medium brown (but I still love my browns!).

Do you rock matte eyes or prefer shimmer/satin finishes? I'd love links to some of your matte EOTDs!
