Delicate Metallics
How To

Step 1
Start by fixing your hair back and use your favourite moisturiser to prepare the skin.

Step 2
Mix your foundation with a bronzer/highlighter to bring the glow and even out the complexion. I used Rouge Bunny Rouge Milk Aquarelle Liquid Foundation in ‘Almond’ and Bronzing Glow Liquid in ‘As if were summer still’.

Use your favourite concealer under the eyes and tap gently into place.

With your fingers, apply an eye shadow primer to the lids.

Step 3
Apply ‘Aubergine Gunmetal’ from Chronos Palette to the outer corner. I use Rouge Bunny Rouge Large Shade Brush 003.

Step 4
Apply the same shade now on the inner half of the lid, using the same brush, leaving the centre of the lid bare.

Step 5
Using a crease brush (such as Rouge Bunny Rouge Crease Brush #011), blend the edges.

Step 6
Apply ‘Champagne Pewter Highlighter’, the lightest shade from Chronos Palette to the middle of the lid, slightly overlapping into the darker colour for a smoothly blended look.

Step 7
Apply a very light highlighter shade to the inner corner to open up the eyes, I used Rouge Bunny Rouge Long Lasting Eye Shadow in ‘Alabaster Starling’.

Step 8
Using the Long Lasting Eye Pencil in ‘Salome’, line along the upper lashes, along the lower lashes and using the eye shadow brush, smudge them a little for a smoky effect.

Step 9
Apply Rouge Bunny Rouge Modelling Mascara Witchery in ‘Midnight’ for more drama.

Step 10
Use a lightweight loose powder to prolong your base, I used Impalpable Finishing Powder Diaphanous.

Now it is time for the blush to balance the eyes and the lips. I used Rouge Bunny Rouge Original Skin Blush ‘Habanera’ to match my warm lip tone.

Step 11
Apply your favourite nude lipstick, I recommend Rouge Bunny Rouge Succulence of Dew Sheer Lipstick in ‘Fluttering Sighs’.
