A Bronze FOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On June - 26 - 2010

Nothing screams Summer like a warm bronzed complexion with copper accents.  Bronze scares me in so many ways!  I love metallics and I adore golds… but bronze?  It’s a touch red… that little bit bolder no?

Bronze and copper totally brings out the greens lurking in your iris though.

Did I tell you that I finally found a bronzer that I can apply with my eyes shut?  Guerlain Terracotta Light Bronzer in 01 Blondes.  If you’re as pale and cool toned as me and think bronzer isn’t for you?  Shut Up.  Just go and try it.  I wish I’d found it years ago.

I’ll do a proper review on it soon…

Anyway, the eyes…

I swished my Laura Geller Eye Rimz in Bewitching Bronze all over…. yeah, 1 colour.  Bite me.  I’m a lazy bitch most days, I’ve got approx 549589430 eyeshadows and 50% of the time (unless I’m showing off) I just grab one shade and go.

But check out the eyeliner! I don’t even know if it goes with the shadow… I don’t really care ‘cos it’s HOT!

Guerlain Divinora Liquid Eyeliner, I think they’re discontinued now.  The colour is immense, the packaging beautiful… the formula a little gloopy and slow-drying… but whatever, the colour. is. great.  I’ll have to start stalking eBay.

Are you stalking eBay for anything discontinued?  Do you do that?

    I think Collection 2000 does a pretty much exact dupe of that colour in their line, at probably much cheaper as well.:) Love the bronze mix though!

    Yours eyes look molten metallic…lovely!!

  3. Beth says:

    That’s such a pretty look. Summery and classy – love it!

    How do you find the Laura Geller Eye Rimz? I’ve seen them on QVC a few times and been tempted, but have showed restraint (for a change).

    The only thing I’m stalking on ebay at the mo is Stila Kitten Eyeshadow. I’ve never had it or even seen it in person but I need to know what all the fuss is about!

    Ooh, that’s lovely and Summery!

    I would love some original Biba and Quant cosmetics. They come up occasionally but I haven’t splurged yet.
    Most of my stuff is from old collections.

    Lovely look! :)

    I’m always stalking eBay for discontinued things (Guerlain Meteorites Voyage Powder in Eclat de Rose in particular and also Mac MSFs), but also new things because I often find BNIB products from the latest collections for about half the rrp. That’s how I got my new Guerlain single eyeshadows (3 are testers actually). Review on my blog btw. :)

    Very pretty. I love LG eyeshadows- well, all her products. I have stalked ebay for discontinued stuff but it tends to be going for more than I want to pay.

  8. I have an Urban Decay liquid liner that looks just like this, the shade is Lucky. :)

  9. Lena says:

    Lovely! Kind of makes me sound like an idiot, but I’ve never thought of doing a bold, bronze eyeliner on a nudey-ish lid. I wear bronze shadow a lot (MAC Amberlights) and find it to be extremely flattering. Will have to rock this very soon!

    I love bronze eyes for the summer and this looks like a gorgeous bronze! I love the liner too, it really gives the whole look an extra something!

  11. baby in a corner says:

    totally agree about the guerlain bronzer, i am blue-pink-white blonde with blue eyes and it totally looks natural and lovely!

  12. I’m LOVING what you have done with your eyes.
    Can I give some constructive criticism? As a makeup atist I have learned that an eye look is not complete until the brows are shaped and filled in.

  13. shaimaa says:

    You look so lovely

  14. @Tammerly – Um, I had shaped and filled them in!

    But I’ll forgive you, because I do have the worst thin but straggly brows in the world x

    Phenomenal eye makeup!!! I love this! <333
