So here we are again with another instalment of makeup experimentation. Today we are talking foiled eyeshadow, in particular the Stila Magnificent Metals Eyeshadow in Kitten. I have done a whole post on this product here, but in short this is a cream to powder eyeshadow that delivers a foil finish, it's mega pigmented and mega glittery and almost wet looking. But most of all it's a bit intimidating to me. As we have already established I am very simple when it comes to makeup but even more so when it comes to my eyes, I will either put a bit of On and On Bronze all over my lid or a bit of Mac Kid in my crease and be done with it. But today I have pulled out the copper eyeshadows again and the glitter.

As always I started off my putting the Colour Tattoo in Creme de Nude all over my lid so I can start with a blank canvas. Then I went straight into the copper shades, I started by putting MAC Cut To Fit all over my lid and into the crease, I liked how it looked but I wanted to make it look a bit more red so it was a bit different and even  more out of my comfort zone. So I used the gorgeous rusty red shade in the Rimmel 5 Pan Eyeshadow in Brixton Brown. This is one of the most amazingly pigmented eyeshadows that I have tried from the drugstore, unfortunately the other shades in this palette aren't consistent but its worth the £6.99 for the red shade alone. Then using a flat brush I sprayed a bit of thermal water on it and then dipped it into the Stila Foiled Eyeshadow. The easiest way to apply this shadow is just to pat it onto your lid, don't bother with blending or it will just end up moving around to much. I wish the pictures did the shadow justice because in person the red copper shades looked so rich and the foil shadow was seriously glittery and looked wet on my eyes, just take my word for it - trust.

Then for something out of my comfort zone again I didn't put any eyeliner, now this is crazy for me. My makeup is never complete without a winged eyeliner or something smudged along my lash line, today all I did was use the Maybelline Master Drama Eyeliner in my tight line just to make my makeup look a bit more intense. I then completed the look with the Better Than Sex Mascara which has become my current favourite.

What do you think about this look? Do you see yourself giving the copper and foil eyeshadow look a go?
