I am very happy with these colours for creating a warm cognac/amber inspired look. I love the level of warmth and richness of the colours and its a look that works for both a day or evening event. I find it looks soft, elegant and romantic with a hint of drama as well. For day, I would stick with a neutral palette for clothes - perhaps bronze and brown tones with added hints of camel or warm cream beige. For evening, I think this would look amazing with extra cognac/amber inspired tones, even going into the true metallic gold, copper and bronze shades. I have to say that this look will probably become a favourite for me - possibly even a 'signature' look - just to re-cap on the makeup:
I started with my basic face: W5 foundation (Loreal), Bobbi Brown warm beige concealer, MAC's Refined Golden Bronzer. I then used Make Up For Ever #70 blush with MAC's Gold Deposit as a pop of colour. For my eyes, I only made one small change from the previous post - I started with Silent Night as a base shade, used Soba from the lid into the crease (I omited using Woodwinked in the crease, since I wanted the golden undertones to take centre stage on the lips vs the eyes). I lined my eyes with Laura Mercier's Brown-Copper eyeliner and smudged the upper lash-line with Galapagos shadow, finishing with a coat of Brown-Black mascara by Loreal Voluminous. For the lips, I used Cork lipliner with Make Up For Ever #17 lipstick (this lipstick has Holy-Grail status in my makeup bag)!!! If you're looking for a #17 dupe, try MAC's Bronze Shimmer - it seems to be a close match!!!
