Metallics for Spring/Summer 2014: Ft Rimmel/Missguided

Hey everyone. So today is a glorious day in England, the sun is shining and even though its bitterly cold out, there is spring in the air and I'm sitting here inside (wearing a dressing gown because I'm so cold!) dreaming of summer!
A little while back, Missguided contacted me telling me they are going to be offering Rimmel products on their site now, making it very easy for you to grab your favourite Rimmel staples while getting a new outfit in! They offered to send me a selection of the products that they will be stocking on the website to create some looks and tutorials with and with the sun shining and me dreaming of summer, it only made sense to do a metallic-y type look. 

Metallic has been a huge trend which is carrying over into S/S 2014 and I chose metallic bronzed beachy tones to really get me in the mood. I can totally see myself wearing this when I'm out and about in the sunshine. Can you? 

I did a tutorial for this look, something which I'm hoping to do more of this year as people always comment and ask "how" exactly do they achieve the looks I post! 
I would really love to know in the comments below whether this is something I should continue? Or too space/time consuming?

1) Using the Rimmel Shadow Paint in Golden Bronze, apply directly to the lid.
2) Using your ring finger, lightly blend out. For the edges I used a tapping motion.
3) Using the gold shade from the Rimmel Glam Eyes HD Quad in Golden Eye, apply over the Shadow Paint.
4) Using the Rimmel Glam Eyes HD Quad in Brixton Brown, I lightly defined the crease with the deep brown/burgandy shade and used the centre shade (which is an excellent dupe of MAC Cranberry) lightly on the edges.
5) Now apply the finishing touches. I highlighted my brow bone and applied the shadow paint to my lower lash line, softening with my finger.
6) I curled my lashes and applied a coat of the Rimmel Scandaleyes Rockin' Curves mascara. I then deepened my crease using the darkest shade from the Brixton Brown Quad and blended all the edges to soften!
And the finished look! 

And there you have it. A simple and very easy tutorial on how to achieve a metallic beachy look in time for the warmer months. I have this theory, that if we all start wearing summery make up, it might encourage the sun to peep his head out? No, just me? OK then. And again, let me know on the tutorial situation! I'll only do it if you want me too :)
I do hope you'll go and check out the Missguided Rimmel range which you can find here, as well as all the products I used for my eyes linked above! They have a pretty impressive range, well worth checking out. I don't know about you, but Rimmel has really been pulling it out of the bag in the last year. Can't wait to see what they do this year. 

What are your favourite Rimmel products? I'd love to know!
Mine are their blushers and the Apocolips range :)

  2. That's gorgeous! i agree, please keep doing these tutorial posts!

  3. This is such a pretty look! Yes, please do more tutorials. I love seeing exactly how people create their looks. I especially like this because it's more of a complex wash than a really structured smokey. It seems that the majority of looks are variations of a smokey look. Which I like but I like seeing other types too. Thanks!!

  4. This is such a gorgeous look! And totally one I could rock at work. Love it.

  5. I love this look! It'd make a really nice evening look for a summer holiday. And yes, please do more tutorials - I love your eye make-up and would love to see how you put your looks together.

  6. This is indeed a very lovely, understated look. Really nice for a summer holidays, evening walks or just going down the town to go shopping on a lovely sunny day. Although you have used a bright metallic colour you have still managed to make it look very natural and not so over the top. I like this look very much. Once again looks lovely on brown eyes, but I am sure it would also suit green eyes as well.
