Copper Sparkle is a difficult pigment to work with. For one it's very frosty and also a little chunky. I did a look very similar to this a couple of months ago and wasn't very happy with the outcome. It came out much better this time around. If you are working with high frost pigments, definitely layer them; first a layer of pigment with mixing medium and then another dry layer. Also make sure that the lid and crease colour don't cross or it will look messy, especially if you are working with a matte crease like I am here.

Hope you have all started an amazing week. Please let me know what you think of this.

And here's summer outfit of the day. The dress is from Forever 21 and thong wedges are from Clarks. I like the dress very much but the neckline is a little low for my not-so-humble assets and I always have to wear a tank top underneath :(
