FOTD: The Bronze Age

I promised you I would shake up my FOTD's, and what better way than to step right out of my comfort zone? 

Although not necessarily a risky look, I wouldn't normally wear my make-up like this. 
I wanted a different twist on the lips, to brighten up the nude eye, so I slicked on L'oreal Crazy Fuschia, and then lightly dabbed MUA Eyeshadow in Shade 30 over the top. Surprisingly, this made a mocha pink colour, I don't think Brown-toned lips suit me too well, and I think frosted lips can look a bit 1990's. 
However, I actually love this look! 
It shows that even if you're pale, you can still rock the neutral and bronzed colours, without looking washed out.
This look also features the first outings of my Soap & Glory Kick-Ass Concealer and 17 Wild Metallics Cream Eyeshadow, that I purchased in my Glasgow Haul (both are firm favourites already).

I've even tried a different pose, albeit a pouty poserish one, but hey, I'm still learning this posing malarky. By the way, this is what my face actually looks like when I'm able to take pictures in natural light!

Products Used:
- 17 Photo Flawless Skin Primer.
- Loreal Paris Infallible Foundation Matte Finish in Porcelain
- Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua in B20

So what do you think, is this look a winner, or should eyeshadow stay firmly on the eyes? 
How do you experiment with make-up? 
I'd love to hear your tips.


  1. love your hair colour, goes well with the make up :)
