I love that phase just before going to a party where you try out each and every combination of makeup looks to see if you'd like them on the night. Some test out their outfits, I prefer trying on eyeshadow.
I needed a rusty copper-like look for a steampunk party, so I fell in love with the Beauty UK Amazon palette, which you'll see my review for pretty soon. I think this look came out okay, but I'll certainly notch up the blending standards on the night. I also think I'll wear a much deeper red lipstick, perhaps Topshop's Beguiled, as this one feels a little more post-Victorian than I'd like.
