All is not gold that glitters…it may be bronze!

As I mentioned here, a few weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending the IMATS show. One of the seminars presented was by Kevin James Bennett, titled “Runway Redefined”. He had recently keyed the Flaguni & Shane Peacock show during NY Fashion week, and mentioned that there was a HUUUUUUGE trend for metallics. ( you can watch the interview here) He then proceeded to give the model a stunning coppery bronze eye. Well, let me tell ya, that man sure knows his makeup! ( not two words I often use in the same sentence 😛 )
Since this is a look I gravitate towards VERY often, I was glad to hear I’ve been au courant this whole time! 😛
Normally, on days where I feel ‘uninspired’, I reach for MAC Bronze, and top it off with MAC Teddy liner. For my rendition here I decided to kick it up a notch, adding some gold….

Nars Ponderosa Cream shadow-base
MAC Bronze-lid
MAC Woodwinked– inner corner * I think that’s what it’s called 🙂 It’s the same shadow I used here

Coastal Scents Black Gel liner

L’Oreal Carbon Black Mascara-applied to curled lashes

Yves Rocher Waterproof liner in Black-waterline

Lashes-Ones I bought at IMATS 🙂

Fluffy dome brush-application and blending

I like this eye look best paired with peachy-pink blush and a fairly nude lip.  Depending how heavy handed you wanna be, it can either be quite subtle or really dramatic…

If executed properly, the sparkle in your eye won’t be the only thing shining! 🙂

So tell me, do you ever take inspiration from the runway?
