And a few more shots of the look:
I have to say that this was one of my favourite makeup looks ever! I know that's saying a lot, but I really love metallics and don't play with them nearly often enough! Once I finished the eye makeup, it reminded me of a stunning look that Lauren Luke created in this video, inspired by the Roberto Cavalli runway. Some true subconscious inspiration! As for my version, Bora Bora Bronze really is a stunning shimmery (ultra long-wearing!) bronze shadow and I'm so pleased with how much use I'm getting out of my rainbow-coloured The Siren palette. I'm reaching for it every weekend! And just a moment for Succubus- I had zero complaints about this bold gloss. From the texture to the shade- it was perfection!
Do you like playing with metallics? Any favourite red glosses?
