Illamasqua are generally known for their more 'out there' colours but they actually do nudes very well. I think that together Ore & Furore make such a beautiful eye combo. Ore is described as a rich russet bronze. When swatched it has quite a lot of gold in it but when blended out the bronze is a lot more evident. It contains some fine gold glitter and if you pack it on it looks stunning! As this is a fairly dark colour you do have to be careful with fallout. Just wipe it away with your foundation brush and only powder the rest of your face after you've applied the pigment. Furore is my favourite of the two as it's more of a multipurpose product than Ore. Whereas Ore only really works as an eyeshadow, Furore can also be used as a highlighter. Illamasqua describe it as a champagne peach shimmer and it really adds a gorgeous glow to your face. Here I've used it on top of my cheekbones, down my nose and on the top of my cupid's bow. The shine of both these pigments is just incredible and the highly metallic shimmer almost makes them look wet.
To do my eyes first of all I applied the Artdeco Eyeshadow Base with a MAC 239 brush. Then I used the same brush to pack Furore on all over my eyelid, right up to my eyebrows. I then used a MAC 219 brush to apply Ore to the outer corners of my eyes including underneath my lash line. I built up the colour and blended out the edges using a MAC 217 brush. Easy peasy! Pigments really aren't so scary if you use the right base product and brushes. The Illamasqua ones simply look amazing and are nowhere near as messy as other loose powders. I've been using these ones almost every day because they are just so beautiful and a lot easier to use than I thought. If you're into shimmery eyeshadows then Ore & Furore are well worth checking out next time you're near an Illamasqua counter.
