Look: Franken-fire (DGC POTW)

It's my turn again for the Darling Girl Pick of the Week!
This week my choice is Frankenstein, one of the shades from the new Oh The Horror collection from Darling Girl Cosmetics.

Frankenstein on center lid.
Frankenstein is an awesome shadow; the website describes it as a "murky greyish green with strong copper shift", which is very accurate. It looks almost gold-ish in the listing photos but for me it looks more coppery and has an almost pink/orange look to it. Check it out:

In my look I used it mainly on the center of my lid; I used Darling Girl's Glitter Glue to really bring out the copper shift, but the effect is much more understated without a base. It's a very versatile shade :)

-Reviva Labs primer
-Wet n' Wild Coverall Cream Foundation in 816 Fair/Light

I think Frankenstein is a perfect Fall color♥
I almost did a burgundy or rusty red lip with this look but decided to go with a more nude lip. I love the peachy golden sheen of Bubbly on the lips! And with the sticky elf gloss over it, it actually stayed on several hours; I even went out with it on, though I did pat some of the gook off and applied a little NYX Smokey Look over top so I didn't look like a corpse, lol. I think this look would be gorgeous with a red lip too!
