Steampunk: Makeup 'looks'

As I've mentioned in past posts, I'm attending a Steampunk themed costume party Oct. 5th...with that I'm not only working on props and costume pieces, but also planning my makeup and hair for this event...

So, here's a look I tried out lastnight, inspired by a look or two I saw on Pinterest:

This look was accomplished with MAC's "Blackground" paint pot as the base, MAC's "Carbon" eyeshadow brushed over the base, and "Crucible Gold" mineral shadow by patted over top.  CoverGirl's "Vanilla" eyeshadow on the brow bone.

I've been aiming more for browns/coppers/bronze shades and even silvers...but I was leaning more toward a wine shade this night:

Revlon's "Crushed Wine" eyeshadow over MAC's "Artifact" paint pot, Fyrinnae's "Pumpkin Fire" loose shadow on the outer corner and TKBTrading's "Crucible Gold" min. shadow on the inner corner.  Bobbi Brown's "Chocolate" cream liner at the lash line with MAC's "Blackline" Pearlglide eyeliner. 

Maybelline's 'Color Tattoo' cream shadow in "Bad to the Bronze" used as the base, MAC's "Copperbeam" pigment shadow over top, with MAC's "Carbon" eyeshadow in the outer corner. Bobbie Brown's "Chocolate" gel liner at lash line.

I like the combo of pewter and brown with this one...
Maybelline's 'Color Tattoo' cream shadow in "Audacious Asphalt" as the base on the lid, a gunmetal silver shade from Sleek Cosmetic's "Graphite" palette, Urban Decay's "Revolver" 24/7 liquid liner at the lash line, a matte "Brown Smolder" shadow by CoverGirl in the crease up to the brow bone.

MAC's "Moss Scape" paint pot as the base, TKBTrading's "Verdigris Gold" mineral shadow, TooFaced's "Label Whore" shadow in the crease to brow bone, MAC's "Plumage" shadow in the outer corner, MAC's "Rich Ground" Fluidline gel liner at the line.
