EOTD Coppery Bronzey Golden with MAC Woodwinked

*Holy moly, the first picture looked like I am half dead.  Something went wonky with the color levels.  Re-uploaded!  Still problematic (blogger seems to adjust color levels automatically) but better.

Spur of the moment started working up an eye look using Woodwinked.  I was watching a tutorial, they got to their eyeliner which made me think about the new eyeliner I just got from Milani that I'd heard raves about - LIQUIF'EYE.  So I wandered myself over to my makeup area and started playing around.  I got the notion that I wanted to do an eye using MAC's Woodwinked to show how coppery orange it goes on my lids.  Photographing accurately the warmth of a shade is challenging to say the least with not a great lighting setup and less than expert knowledge of lighting and photography.  Blogger also changes the color balance on resized images, full sized will look different.


With my skintone and eye color, these shades are sort of my default, safe/easy combinations.


I did use my LeGloss but getting a whole face picture was a mess, I've already washed my face for the night so I didn't want to put any other makeup on and I was too blotchy to bother.
Used LORAC lid primer, UD Shakedown in brows, Woodwinked packed heavily on the lid and blended through the crease.  Smudged out the Milani LIQUIF'EYE on lower lash, lightly tightlined. 
Wet n Wild Bronzed pencil in the inner corner and smudged around the lower lash, MAC Surf, Baby metallic pigment from Surf the Ocean stack along lower lashes.  Smudged out some Woodwinked around lower lashes too. 

Not pictured, but swatched and in the actual end results I used the gold shade from Too Faced Romantic Eye palette, Honeymoon in the inner corner.  And used my new Physicians Formula organic mascara.  Formula is a bit dry, but I like the end results after working with it - 2 layers (let one coat dry, which I very rarely do - this didn't clump).


I did a little experiment swatching Woodwinked - left to right it's on bare skin, over NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk (plain white), and lastly over the LORAC lid primer.  They all give different shade variations, in the pot it's an antiqued gold.
