  1. oOOO i would make a really smoky eye with these. On the cheeks I would use sunstrip bronzing powder, and on the lips I would go for a nude look. Thats one of my favorite looks!

    Hmm…I’m wondering what Black Ore would look like with Lovely Lily all over lid, Violet in the middle, Black Ore on outer corner and crease. Then maybe Sweetie lipstick and Ms. Fizz lipgloss. Maybe you could try something like this? I don’t have the Black Ore or the Sweetie.

    i have this and i love it.
    i use to make my eyes smokey

    Black Tied, Knight Divine and Silver Ring.
    Dior Diorshow Mascara and Dior Eyeliner in Noir.

    either a very pale pink lip like estee lauder lipstick in precious pink
    or a rosy lip like MAC lipglass in soft & slow

    i would even pair it with a guerlain eye palette. i don’t remember the name/number but it was like smokey greens and grays it was gorgeous. i saw it in an airport last month but didn’t buy it. but im going to get it in 2 weeks when i go back

  5. I think I would go with a mac bronzer for cheeks and a neutral lip glass. This eyeshadow is stunning just beautiful.

    I used this for the first time a few days ago, and was in a mad hurry. I put it in the crease and outer lid with Tempting over the top and it looked like a really lovely deep bronze. I plan on trying a few more combos!
