With this installation of my #BareFacedorBold Westfield challenge, I wanted to make a bit of a point - that just because you go 'bare' on the eyes, doesn't mean you have to be completely 'bare'. That's the great thing about make-up, you can really accentuate what you want to accentuate.
This look is for the early risers, or the "still getting to grips with what eyeshadow is"-ers. MAC's Copperplate eyeshadow could be your new best friend. This eyeshadow is a matte grey, but with a taupey/purpley undertone that prevents it from being that cold, blue-toned grey.
The great thing about this look is that it literally is just Copperplate applied to the eyelid. That's it. It's a colour that is so sophisticated and beautiful on its own, that with the right 'surrounding' make up, it'll look amazing. It also creates a subtle smokey eye that isn't inappropriate for the day time or perhaps even the office.
For me, this was all about the smudged eyeliner, banging lashes, and the further banging lips. I lined my eyes, just until the end with no wing, and smudged it with a bit of Copperplate. This defined my eyes and added to that smokey look.
As for cheeks, I used a peachy tone to warm up the face - Copperplate can be a bit cool on its own. And for the lips, I went in with L'Oreal's L'Extraordinaire in Ruby Opera - one of my favourite reds. The gloss really compliments the matte-ness of Copperplate beautifully.
