I’m going through a proper bronze/ gold phase at the moment when it comes to eyeshadow. I just seem to be gravitating towards these shades on an almost daily basis. They just seem so appropriate at this time of year and I suspect I’ll still be craving them when the party season rocks up in a couple of months time. Here are some of my current favourites.
MAC Woodwinked – This has almost a peachy tone to it and I have heard some people with cooler skin tones saying that it pulls orange on them. On my though (neutral undertones) it’s a gorgeous burnished gold.
MUA Heaven & Earth Palette (third shade from left of top row) – This is a little more yellow toned than Woodwinked. The texture is very comparable though and it is excellent quality, especially considering that the palette is only £3!).
Urban Decay Twice Baked – This is found in the Naked Palette although I suspect it probably crops up in other Urban Decay palettes too. This is probably my favourite true gold. It’s bright, clean and fairly neutral in tone. The formula is perfect as well.
Urban Decay Oraculum – This is in the Alice in Wonderland palette although I believe it appears in others under the name Baked. This is more of a coppery shade with a very strong orange tone. I love this on the lid with black in the crease for a Halloween vibe.
Barry M Dazzle Dust 24 Old Gold – This is a much cooler, dirtier shade. Whereas the others are smooth and shimmery this is more glittery. You can see in the swatch picture that my camera just couldn’t make sense of it. These are best used with sticky bases but the effect is very beautiful when on.
