FFF: Lorac Pro Golden Bronze Makeup Look

This week's FFF is using the fairly newly acquired Lorac Pro Palette that a friend very sweetly got for me from the US as it's not available here in the UK (booooo!)
I wasn't sure what I'd do with the palette at first as it's so pretty and the texture is so soft but I decided on a fool proof golden bronze look, so I hope you like it!

Products used:
Eyes:
> UDPP - Eden

> Lorac Pro Palette - Cream, Taupe, Sable, Espresso, Black, Nude, Lt Bronze, Gold, Garnet

> Inglot AMC Gel liner in 77 (black)
> Rimmel ScandalEyes Kohl liner in Nude 5 
> Daniel Sandler Jumbo Jet Mascara
> Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer - Medium
> Urban Decay Heavy Metal glitter eyeliner in Midnight Cowboy
> Anastasia Beverley Hills Dip Brow Pomade - Ebony
> Eylure Girls Aloud lashes - Kimberley
Face: 
> UD Naked Skin foundation in 6.0
> UD Naked Skin Loose Finishing Powder in Medium Dark
> Motives Sculpt & Shape Duo 
> UD Toasted Bronzer - Toasted
Lips:
> UD Naked Ultra Nourishing lipgloss in Rule34

After priming the eyes with UDPP in Eden, I filled in the brows with the Anastasia Beverley Hills Dip Brow Pomade in Ebony and concealed around the brows to make them more clean. I then started applying Taupe with a fluffy brush to the crease of the eyes, and using a flat brush, applied Nude to the brow bone to highlight, blending in between with Cream and Taupe.
Using a pointed brush I applied Espresso to the outer V of the eye and crease and blended more. I then applied Gold to the middle-inner part of the lid and Lt Bronze to the inner corner of the eye, with Garnet and a bit of Black to the outer corner. You can add more Black to the crease with a pointed brush for more depth, making sure to blend upwards and at the lower outer lash line.
I then went with a flat liner brush and added more black to the outer corner, then further with Inglot AMC gel liner. With another liner brush I added Nude to the bottom inner lash line and UD Heavy Metal glitter eyeliner on top.
I lined the top eyelid with Inglot AMC Gel liner, extending the wing out and lining the top inner eye. For the bottom inner eye I used Rimmel ScandalEyes Kohl liner in Nude.
After coating the lashes with mascara, I added Eylure Girls Aloud Kimberley lashes and concealed under the eyes with Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection concealer to finish off the look:
For the rest of the face I used Urban Decay Naked Skin foundation in 6.0 (yellow toned), and the Naked Medium Dark Loose Powder.
For the cheeks I used the Motives Sculpt & Shape Duo with UD Toasted Bronzer in between the highlight and contour.
I decided to then keep the lips neutral as my last look was fairly dramatic and only used the UD Naked Ultra Nourishing lipgloss in Rule34 (no lip liner), which is quite sheer but a nude brown:
And voila, the look is done!
I usually prefer brighter colours on my lips and probably would have paired it with a less sheer nude or a plummy brown colour lipstick, but wanted to try out the new UD Naked Lipgloss for this look so I went with that.

What lip colour would you wear with this look?

    So inspirational and talented masha'allah! and your photography is amaaaazing too! I have so much to learn from you haha, and I would probably go for more of a pink nude, or a bolder red lip because the colours used are so neutral but still very pretty ^_^
