Bronze Shimmer Lipstick MAC

Not quite bronze, not quite amber and not quite gold, all of 'Bronze Shimmer's' 'Not Quites' make it the PERFECT bronze-amber-gold combination - I love how in not being able to describe a shade, it morphs into its own perfect 'unexplained' colour. Regardless of what 'Bronze Shimmer' is or isn't, its ideal for a warm, terracotta or orange-brown based. If you're looking for a unique 'autumn' tone to wear this fall, Bronze Autumn may just be your perfect shade because its stunning when paired or blended with other shades or liners. You can tone it down for everyday with a natural liner like Spice or Chicory (I used chicory in this look) or use it on top of a tomato red shade for an evening 'uber HOT' look! I decided to play around with warm golden brown, copper and amber tones with this look - check it out:
I started with my basic concealer, tinted moisturizer and then applied my current 'favourite' blush - coppertone by MAC. For the eyes, I used brule+retrospeck, blended as a base shade. I also mixed amber lights and espresso and applied this combo on the lid into the crease (all MAC shadows). I used NARS mambo eyeliner and smudged the upper lashline with MAC's espresso before finishing with mascara. MAC chicory lipliner was applied to the lip and topped with Bronze Shimmer Lipstick - Voila, a warm, gold infused autumn look!!!
