How to Wear Metal Eyeshadow Four Ways

Metal colored eyeshadows can give your everyday makeup look a boost. These pretty shades of bronze, cooper or gold are very universal and go with nearly every color. Here are four versions that are so different.

Nude: Paired with a nude lip is great for the barely there look. To get this look I used MAC Subculture lip liner with MAC Myth lipstick and MAC Prism blush.

Classic: Another great daytime look and also a great bridal makeup look. Here I used MAC Dervish liner with MAC Chic lipstick and ELF Muted Mauve blush.

Pop: A pop of color brightens your day and can be used in all kinds of eye catching colors such as fuchsia or orange. I used for this look MAC Cherry lip liner and MAC Impassioned lipstick with MAC Dollymix blush.

Vamp: a metal eyeshadow looks amazing with a dark lip. Try using anything from a dark blood red or a dark eggplant. I used MAC Vino lip liner and Mary Kay lipstick in Confidence with MAC Ablaze blush.

For all of the looks I used Urban Decay Smog eyeshadow from the Naked 1 Pallette. So you can see one color can be used in many different ways. Try using lots of varieties and you will be in love with this new version of neutral makeup!

Sacramento Bride & Groom Editorial - Romance

Great news!  I've been published in the latest publication of Sacramento Bride & Groom!  It was so amazing to be apart of such a talented team of industry professionals.  I had the unique opportunity to have access to a vintage cottage in Placerville CA.  In fact it was my in-laws property that they were about to sell after living there for over 30 years.  So I had to jump on the chance to photograph there before it was gone!  Spring is the best time to shoot here because the back yard is in full bloom with these gorgeous pillow-y flowers that when they fall look like snow.  What a great day and thank you to Sacramento Bride & Groom for publishing the pictures and a special thanks to Darcie from a Dazzling Day for the connections!  Read the magazine here or on news stands now!

Here are some of the Hair and Makeup pictures....
