Fifty Shades Of Colour #1

So gorgeous people here is my first ever Fifty Shades Of Colour. I am trying to use lots of different colours and will focus on the main colour I apply that day and will show what products I used and photos galore :). So heres my first one, neutral tones the main colour being a metallic bronze from an Accesorize palette. Altogether I used four colours, a base colour, a brown shade for the crease, the metallic bronze for all over and a dark metallic brown for the edge. See below the colours and products used.
Firstly I use MAC select cover up in NW25 for all over my lid and under to cover my dark circles from no sleep being a mother! This also keeps my eyeshadows fabulous for a whole day.

Secondly, I used a matte cream toned eyeshadow over my lids and under my eyebrow, and a matte brown for my crease to create smokey definition.

Base colour



Then I used the main feature metallic bronze over my lid, this colour is stunning and gives a gorgeous sheen! It has a bronze colour and personally I would use this for day and night.

To then create more smoke I added a dark brown to the edge and around my eye lid to create definition, a flick of Maybelline Eyeliner Gel that lasts all day! I had it on during a 16 hour labour and it lasted! Amazing!

Then to open up my lids I used my MAC Iridescent Pressed Powder in Belightful in the inner corner, below my eyebrow and on my lower lash line, this opens up my eyes and creates a lovely shimmer. Its a staple in my makeup bag!


Finally, I use lashings of Maxfactor Calorie 2000 mascara in black an define my eyebrows with Benefit Brow Shaping kit in dark to complete the look! Add concealer again to touch up.
