bronzed eyeshadow

Golden Eye Edit

From Day-to-Day

Burberry Sheer Eyeshadow in No. 22 Pale Barley – This is a complex, hard to describe shade that seems to look different on everyone. On me, it’s a light to medium, warm brown that pulls slightly golden, with a lovely sheen and very, very fine iridescent shimmer which is almost imperceptible.

The formula is something to shout about – smooth, creamy, buttery, silky. Everything you’ve come to expect from a Burberry eyeshadow. It has incredible colour payoff and is fully opaque in just one sweep. The perfect subtle shadow for daily golden sheen. This was a tricky one to find, but it’s well worth the search.

From Day-to-Night
MAC Mulch – My go to shade, a one wash wonder if you will. It’s a medium-dark, red toned brown with a golden warm undertone. The pearly finish can be blended out to a subtle sheen and it’s a beauty. A similar colour can be found with the MAC Paint Pot in Eclair and MAC Lie Low.

This is one of my favourite eyeshadows as it intensifies my green peepers and adds a little somethin’ somethin’ to any outfit.

All Night Long…
NARS Kalahari Duo – marked as a Gold confection and a Sugared cocoa, these two are beautiful. Kalahari appears in one of my favourite palettes ‘And God Created the Woman’ and here is where my love affair began. Swept all over the lid this shadow imparts a subtle shimmer and a warm hue, but packed on with a flat brush and buffed out – this can create a show stopping bronzed smokey eye like no other. Top marks.

The tiny palette is composed of one bright yet old bronze shade that is not all that dissimilar from MAC Woodwinked and the other segment is a cool toned taupe that it equally as beautiful.This will take you all through the night with a show-stopping gold wash that won’t disappoint.
