Good evening lovers,
Today’s look is a slight combination of a smokey eye and eyeliner emphasis. This look, inspired by the golden shades of Christmas and Jen’s creativity were pulled together in the most artistic way. I’ll have you notice the continuation of the gold line from the bottom of my eye, winged out towards the top corners, and put together with some slight contouring on the face.
This look is a little artsy per say, so it’s understandable if you don’t want to deck the halls at your staff christmas party looking like a golden cleopatra but we consider this one of our more artistic looks.
She started off this process like any other by applying foundation and this time we used MAC’s Prop Long Wear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation in the shade NC42, but we later realized I’m more of an NC40.
Jen flaked the under eyes with our usual wonderful white powder that is ELF HD Undereye Setting Powder to cover and then applied MAC’s Prep and Primer 24hour Extended Eye Base Powder.
She started off the eyes using a STILA eyeshadow in the shade Nectar as a base base, to give me a nice even lid. Then she used her MAC 266 liner brush and applied the gel liner in Black Jack to portray the most perfect cat eye I’ve ever witnessed.
She did a slight smokey eye using MAC’s soft brown all along the crease.
Jen applied the glitter using ELF’s Makeup Lock and Seal Liquid to make the glitter adhere to the brush and then into my face. She applied the glitter liner to the outer two thirds of the top, and the inner 1/3rd of the bottom.
After using REVLON Photo Ready Eye Brighter on my lower water line, Jen set the eyeliner with MAC’s black eyeshadow in Carbon and put a little bit on the underline and at the base of the lashes.
We used Rimmel’s Volume Flash Scandal Eyes Mascara and Jen clumped them together using tweezers to make them spike out. She wanted to try something new so she brought out STILA’s All Day Waterproof Brow Colour in the shade “Dark”.
It’s precision allows you to draw different hairs on, it looks very natural but it takes a little more patience because essentially you’re drawing in hairs
She combed the brows through and we were all good to move on to some slight contouring using Elizabeth Arden’s Pure Finish Summer Escape Bronzing Powder which was applied to my cheeks, forehead, nose and under the chin. And added a bit of blush to add some natural colour.
For the lips she used MAC’s Lip Gelee in the shade “Gold Sparkle” and a dab of Anna Sui Lip Gloss in 850 for a slight gold sparkle.
And ta daaaa!
We hoped you enjoyed this look just as much as we enjoyed putting it together!
