I've really been embracing bronze and gold toned eyeshadows at the moment. I'm not sure why but I've rekindled my love for a bit of a darker eye (let's not get carried away - it's still quite subtle in the scheme of things) of late and I feel like the Urban Decay Naked Palette is the perfect palette to create such a look.
If you want to know how I created this look, keep reading!
My brows were a combination of two Anastasia Beverly Hills products, the Dipbrow Pomade in Medium Brown and the Brow Wiz Skinny Brow Pencil in Medium Ash. I like to start off with the pomade and fill in the outer three quarters of my brows, creating a slightly more defined arch and shape. When I'm happy with them I like to run a bit of the Brow Wiz through the middle. I find it's a lot more subtle than the pomade and it ties everything together really nicely.
My cheeks were a combination of a few old favourites with one or two new additions to my collection bits thrown in for good measure. I lightly buffed NARS' Laguna Powder Bronzer around the perimeter of my face with a large duo fibre brush. To add some more definition I lightly contoured with the Face of Australia Glamazon Contour & Highlight Kit and my NARS ITA brush. To add some colour back into my cheeks I patted a bit of NARS' Matte Multiple in Anguila and set it with MAC's Cheeky Bugger Powder Blush.
Like always, I primed my lids with MAC's Paint Pot in Painterly to even out the skin tone and create a great base for my shadow. The Rimmel London Scandaleyes Shadow Paint in Golden Bronze was the absolute perfect base for this look. This product is absolutely fantastic and I really recommend them if you can get your hands on it! All of the eyeshadows for this look came from the Urban Decay Naked Palette. I started off by buffing Naked into the crease to act as a transition colour. I then patted Smog all over the lid and worked Darkhorse into the outer corner. To add a bit more dimension to the look I patted a small amount of Half Baked on the inner corner. I don't normally line my waterline with anything but a flesh toned liner but I decided to smoke things out a bit more by lining with the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Pencil in Smog. For mascara I wore an old favourite that is, unfortunately, on its way out, the Estee Lauder Sumptuous Bold Volume Mascara.
Last but not least, I threw MAC's Coral Bliss lipstick on.
And there's another look! I've been recreating this look a lot lately and I really love it. I feel like this look is a lot nicer and more dramatic in person but it just wouldn't translate to photo, no matter how hard I tried!
What do you think? How do you wear bronze shadows? What's your favourite?
