If I am honest with you, I actually hate mixing metals, especially with jewellery! I don’t know why but I always have! I used the shades Vermeer and Primavera from the Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills (*) as the silver and gold shades in this look. Vermeer is not straight up silver but it is a very icy shade with a pink undertone while Primavera is a very subtle gold. I came up with this “mixing metals” idea as I often see people using different shades of shimmery shadows on their lid, but it is often different shades of the same colour. If you want to know how I created this look, then keep on reading!
To start of this eyeshadow look, I primed my eyelids with the MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in the shade Soft Ochre and used a translucent powder to set it. Next, I dipped straight into the Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette (*) from Anastasia Beverly Hills! The first shade I used was Golden Ochre in my crease with a Crease Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. Next, I dipped the same brush into the shade Raw Sienna from the same palette and placed it a bit lower in my crease. I wanted to make the eyeshadow more warm-toned, so I dipped into the shade Burnt Orange with the Classic Blender Brush from Coastal Scents and lightly swept it over my entire crease. Then I applied some of the shade Raw Sienna to the outer corner of my lid using the Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents to lay down the shadow but used the Crease Blender Brush to blend it out.
Before I started on the shimmery shadows, I layed down some of the shade Raw Sienna under my eyes with the same Pointed Blender Brush and again I used the Crease Blender Brush to blend it out but this time I had dipped the brush into the shade Burnt Orange. To make the shimmery shadows more metallic, I dipped my brush (Pointed Detail Brush from Coastal Scents) into some NYX Cosmetics Dewy Setting Spray (*) which I had sprayed into the cap it comes with. I started by applying the shade Vermeer to about half of my lid, then I used the same brush and applied the shade Primavera to the middle of my eyelid, so I applied it a bit over the Vermeer shadow and into the shade Raw Sienna I had placed on the outer part of my lid. I used the shade Raw Sienna to blend out the edge of Primavera and then I just kept going back and forth until I was happy with the result! To do this I used the Pointed Blender Brush for Raw Sienna and the Pointed Detail Brush for Primavera.
Then I curled my lashes with the Eylure Heated Eyelash Curler (*) and applied the Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara from Essence to my lashes. For my brows, I used the NYX Cosmetics Tame & Frame Tinted Brow Pomade (*) in the shades Blonde and Brunette. And believe it or not, but I actually forgot to put on highlighter!
