Metallic neutrals overload: copper and gold

This autumn is going to be all about metallics, we've all heard this over and over and my renovated love for all things gold and copper falls perfectly in tune with the season.

It all started out while trying out some new bits I got, among which a new cream eyeshadow from Essence and it escalated to this full on metallic look. I was inspired  by the gorgeous Fran from Being Cute is not a Crime, who has shown in here series Matchy Matchy how a one color look can work wonderfully, so I went on and put the aforementioned eyeshadow over my lips as well. 
Disclaimer has to be the horrified face of the boyfriend when seeing the lips and honestly I wouldn't go out like this, but I like it, so here it is!

Products used:

  • Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation in 56 Light Bronze
  • Maybelline Fit Me Concealer 20
  • Kiko Golden Game Sculpting Bronzer and Highlighter in 01 Radiant Honey

  • Essence Effect Eyeshadow in 01 Eagypt's Treasure all over the lid and blended out
