Make up look: Gilded Gold

IMG_0055

Lips: "Unity" by Chanel (Christmas gift)
Blush: Maybelline Mineral Powder in Gentle Pink
Mascara: Maybelline XXL Curl Power
Under eye concealer: Clinique in Light Neutral #1
On the eyes: Hip Eyeshadow Duo: L'Oreal in Gilded, both colors; 
Sonia Kashuk eye shadow duo in Take Cover - 
both colors and a highlighter from Maybelline quad

This is my go to makeup look if I want to focus on my eye makeup (read: have time to do proper makeup and not just put on some red lipstick) and I know I'll be wearing gold tones. It actually looked better in person but you can still get the basic idea of how it is looks. 

How I did the eyes:
I started with the light color of the Sonia Kashuk on the lid (after a bit of concealer to prime the eye lid) and the darker color in the crease. I added a few more layers of the darker color till I got the desired shape and color. Then I used the dark color from the Hip duo in the outer corner and blended it towards the center. On the inner corner I used the gold from the Hip duo and blended it towards the center. I finished it off with a whitish highlighter and blended everything a little bit more. 

I hope that my makeup artist friends approve!
