I must apologies in advance that my current posts are mostly face of the day in format. I'm on a little mission at the moment to use at least one neglected item from my collection each day. I hope you don't mind me sharing the results with you.
Today's chosen item was MAC Patina eyeshadow. After many mistakes buying neutrals that were too warm for me, this was a breathe of fresh air. The colour is a sort a muted and quite ashy gold with frosty finish. MAC describes it as a 'muted taupe brown with golden shimmer' but I really don't think I would describe it as Taupe, I think the golden shimmer makes it appear less brown to me. I certainly think it's a nice neutral shade for those with cool colouring.
I was inspired to try something a little different colour wise after seeing Bella Queen's beautiful look with NARS Daphne eyeshadow. I wouldn't have thought to put purple and gold together but I thought it looked gorgeous. I'm sorry for the rather excessive number of pictures for this particular FOTD. It was quite difficult to capture the colours and I found they came out better with the flash on. I think the colours look a little muddy in the natural daylight pictures, which is not how it looked in the flesh.
