Goldly Natural Look

Hey everyone!

I don't know why, but I am really loving a gold look now! I almost use different gold eyeshadows to create different looks every day, and today's blog is one of them. So, please forgive me if the next look will involve a gold eyeshadow again :p (Oh, I think it was because now is still summer! The sun and the heat remind me of gold.. and when the sun reflects your shimmery gold eyeshadows, you will be sparkling!)

Okay let's get started!

Start off with the eyes...

the finished look

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk, NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Gold,
Urban Decay Primer Potion in Original, Urban Decay Naked Palette, Rimmel Lash Accelerator,
MAC Fluidline in Black Track, MAC Palette in Burmese Beauty

Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Half Baked

MAC Eyeshadows in Showstopper

Left: NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk - Right: NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Gold

Stila brush #15, Sigma SS224, Sigma SS222, Sonia Kashuk Bent Eye Liner
  1. Apply eye primer Urban Decay Primer Potion in Original so that your eyeshadows will stay all day long! I do not recommend to apply it directly from the wand because you will waste a lot of product, and you actually don't need that much.
  2. Take NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk, and draw a line on your lids. Blend it with your fingers. 
  3. Then take NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Gold, and do the same thing as #2. (layers are the key!)
  4. Apply Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Half Baked, and apply it all over your lid with shader brush from Stila brush #15. 
  5. Use Sigma SS222, take MAC Eyeshadow in Showstopper in the crease (you can use darker eyeshadow if you want a darker look, but I'll just stick with two eyeshadows). 
  6. Blend the Showstopper in a circular motion with Sigma SS224. 
  7. Use the pencil brush from Stila brush #15, and line lower lash line, starting from inner corner, with Half Baked about half-way down.
  8. Use the same brush, continue lining your lower lash line with Showstopper until outer corner. 
  9. Line your upper lashline with MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack with Sonia Kashuk Bent Eye Liner. I love this brush - It makes lining your eyes super duper easy! 
  10. Line your water line also with Blacktrack using the same brush. 
  11. Curl your lashes and apply Rimmel Lash Accelerator Mascara Black.
You are done with the eyes! 

Lets move on to the face.. 

Urban Decay Setting Spray De Slick, e.l.f All Over the Stick in Golden Peach, Benefit Hoola Bronzer,
Palladio Rice Powder Natural, NARS Blush in Deep Throat, Misha Perfect BB Cream

Three brushes only! MAC 109, Sigma SS194, Sigma F84
As usual... ... ...
  1. Apply MISSHA M Perfect Cover BB Cream No.23 Natural Beige SPF42 PA+++ (50ml) all over your face! I used Sigma F84 brush.
  2. Cover your dark circle with Eve Pearl Salmon Concealer in Medium with Sigma SS194. 
  3. Smile, and take e.l.f All Over Stick in Golden Peach and apply it on your apple cheeks. You can use your fingers or Sigma F84 brush again. 
  4. Pat Palladio Rice Powder in Natural with powder puff, concentrated on your T-zone area. 
  5. Contour your cheeks with Benefit Hoola Bronzer with MAC 109. Also apply it on the side of your forehead, jaws, or whatever area where the sun hits. 
  6. Sweep NARS Blush in Deep Throat for pinky cheeks with MAC 109. 
  7. Spray Urban Decay De-Slick Oil Control Makeup Setting Spray 4 fl oz (118 ml) and you are done! 

Isn't this look so easy? You basically need to have two eyeshadows: Gold shimmer and matte brown. The Showstopper eyeshadow was limited edition, but honestly the color is not unique at all.. it is just a matte dark brown, no shimmer or glitter. I am pretty sure you can find these colors in drugstores, I saw tons of them. 

What do you guys think of this look? Would you try it out? Let me know in the comment below!
