Picture Tutorial: Gold, Copper and Red Glitter Makeup look with Archetype Cosmetics

This is a tutorial I did a few weeks ago. Going to try to catch up on posts but work is a top priority right now so not sure how consistent posting will be for a while. I know you understand. :-)

Necklace is available in my eBay store:


Click below for the picture tutorial.

Start with clean lids. Apply your fav anti-crease primer. Then apply a sticky base. I used Detrivore Eye Primer.

 Using a fluffy blending brush, apply elf - innocent just under brow and blending downward. Then apply Archetype - Queen of the Nile to the very middle of lid by patting on with a small shader brush.

 Apply Archetype - Mausie to either side of QOTN by patting on with a small shader brush.

 Apply Integra's Dog II to outer V/crease with a fluffy shader brush by patting then sweeping.

 Apply Integra's Dog II to inner lid with a small shader brush by patting

 again using Integra's Dog II, apply it to outer and inner lower lash line with a tiny shader brush by patting and lightly sweeping.

 Apply Mausie to middle of lower lash line with a tiny shader brush by patting.

 Apply Archetype Morning Star to the inner corner by patting it on with a tiny taklon brush

 Use a fluffy blending brush and soften any harsh lines.

 Apply a bit of black to the outer crease by patting and swirling with a small fluffy brush

 Take a liner brush like MAC 210 to mix with water and Kryolan Aquacolor liner - Black (the best liquid liner ever!) to get the consistency you like and gently, slowly apply to the upper lash line and extend outward to form a wing. Remember practice, patience and a steady hand will create lovely winged liner.
If you don't have Kryolan Aquacolor liner, then use whatever liner you want.

 Apply NYX Liquid Crystal Liner in Crystal Gold to the very middle of upper lid by swiping it on.

 Apply your fav lashes, mine are Ardell #113

Apply your fav black mascara to lower lashes and you're finished!

Here's the rest of what is on my face:

Eyebrows: Ardell eyebrow powder in soft black (applied with MAC 266) 
Lips: Morgana Cryptoria -  Clay Bakin'

Face: Skin MD Shielding lotion
Sobe Mineral Foundation in Light Neutral (applied with a vegan flat buffer brush by patting, then buffing)
Sobe DuoChrome Blush in After All

I hope this tutorial was helpful!


  1. Awesome tutorial, thank you!! You put a lot of work/color into your looks. :)

  2. Love that lipstick!
    Thanks for tutorial.

  3. Nice eye makeup as usual, love the colours you've used for this look.

  4. I am really enjoying your looks lately with the placement in the middle of your lid - this one, with the Queen of the Nile, and the Smoky blue makeup look with Morgana Cryptoria, with Ethereal Veil in the middle. Awesome placement, gorgeous effect. :)

  5. I love that almost green sheen in the centre of the lid :)
