January 2011 Series: 14th

A gold, rust, & silver look with heavy eyeliner.

I started off this look by applying a neutral base, followed by a white base for extra hold. Next, I applied a gold shade on the lid & blended it a bit above the crease. A dark rust shade was applied on the outer third of the lid & a bit in the crease & blended. A silver eyeshadow was then applied as the highlight & brought down to meet the dark rust & gold & blended in well with these colours. Next, a black cream eyeliner was used to apply a fairly thick line on the lower lashline & winged at the end. The cream eyeliner was then applied in a thick line on the upper lashline & winged as well, but this wing was not joined with the bottom wing. Instead, the top wing ran parallel to the bottom wing & the top wing was purposely kept a little shorter than the bottom wing. On the inner corner of the eye, the eyeliner from the upper & lower lashline were brought together in a triangle sort of point (I'm not sure how to put this in words - see pictures below). The gold eyeshadow that was used first was then placed in between the top & bottom wings. Black pencil eyeliner was then used to tightline & applied on the waterline. The look was finished off by applying black mascara to the upper & lower lashes.




Products Used:
  • Urban Decay Primer Potion
  • NYX jumbo eye pencil Milk
  • Prestige Cosmetics eyeshadow in C-179 Golden Retriever
  • The Body Shop eyeshadow in Brick (this is OLD - my mum bought this more than 10 years ago)
  • Rimmel Colour Rush Quad Eye Shadow in 001 Smokey Noir (silver used as the highlight)
  • Senna Cosmetics CreamLine in Jet
  • Almay Blendable Eye Pencil in Black
  • Almay One Coat Triple Effect mascara in Black
