One common color combination I feel I’ve been seeing more often as we get into autumn is a mix of copper, gold, and plum. Here’s my current favorite mix of shades in that vein! :) These could all be worn together or as three or four shades.  Subra is great for making the look appear smokier, cooler, while Goddess and Deep Damson create dimension with their less frosted finishes.  I’d love to hear what shades you’re using to recreate the combination as well.

  1. Make Up For Ever ME728 Copper Red — a metallic, golden copper
  2. Makeup Geek Goddess — a satiny, orange with hints of brown
  3. Make Up For Ever ME654 Cauldron — a rich bronze with a frosted sheen
  4. MAC Deep Damson — a matte, plummy burgundy
  5. NARS Subra — a deepened yet muted purpled burgundy with a soft, frosted finish

Temptalia Asks You


What’s your favorite way to apply foundation? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerIt’s hard for a product to be universal, and even if you ignore color, you have price, accessibility, and just plain ol’ preferences that come into play! I certainly think that there are some great, cult products that are worth checking out, but even some of the major classics (NARS Orgasm always comes to mind) have 239847234 iterations since their creation where some of the “dupes” are better.
