Shimmering Metallics

Hey Everyone!

I hope you are doing well :-)

I just wanted to say a very special THANK YOU for all the support and appreciation I've been getting over my last post, "Makeup For Each Decade".  Honestly, thank you so much. It was a blast to do, and it took me quite some time to put together with my hectic schedule.
Your words mean everything to me!

So let's get back to "glam makeup" (yay!).
For this look, I wanted to dip into some of my favorite shades. Sultry metallic tones :-)  (YAY!)
I have always loved gold, bronze, and copper shades. They are gorgeous on everyone!

Also, I'm going to start doing looks without foundation.  As you know I live in Arizona and it's about 314 degrees right now.  So I really don't want to hassle with foundation. Not so much.
I'm only wearing concealer and powder unless otherwise mentioned.

Concealer: Maybelline Instant Rewind
Powder: L'Oreal True Match Pressed Powder

I hope you enjoy!



For this look, I used a gorgeous Nyx Palette that is no longer available. :-(  
(I tried to search for one on Ebay and found one for $26!! SERIOUSLY!?!)


Don't fret!! Just find your fave metallic shadows and substitute!
Make it your own :-)


EYES:

♥ UDPP
♥ Nyx Jumbo Pencil in Iced Mocha
♥ Ulta Shadow in Naked from brow to crease
♥ Shade 1 (copper red) to crease
♥ Shade 2 (brassy orange) to diffuse shade 1, up and out towards brow bone
♥ Shade 3 (bright gold) to inner corner, top and bottom
♥ Shade 4 (bronze) and Nyx Glitter Powder in Salmon to lid, for some added dazzle
♥ Sugarpill's Bulletproof shadow (black) to outer V, crease, and lower lash line
♥ Black liner to lash and water line 
♥ Black mascara
♥ Red Cherry Lashes in 43's

BLUSH:
♥ Nyx Pressed Blush in Amber

LIPS:

♥ Nyx Round Lipstick in Peach
(Which is not peach at all, ironically. It's more of a pink/red/sparkly/awesome)
♥ Nyx Round Gloss in Whipped


I love how it turned out, and I adore how flirty copper shades can be ;-)
♥♥♥♥

I hope this inspires you! Thank you so much for stopping by, I truly love it when you do!

I need to mention that you might not see me around for a bit.  
I have a bit of a family medical emergency that needs my focus.  I will do everything I can to respond or stop in and visit blogs when I can, but my attention is needed somewhere very important right now.  
I know you all understand, and I appreciate you so much for that.

You can always tweet me: @VanityandVodka
Or find me on Instagram: @theVanityandVodka
I plan to stop in a bit more often there :-) 

Blessings to you!!
xoxo, 
Colleen
