The colour gold makes me think of Christmas and of the winter. It is such a pretty shiny colour and when paired with some red lips, it can really look even better.
I started out with MAC Prep+Prime Skin primer and applying a generous amount on my entire face. This primer is great as it leaves tiny glitters which wil make the skin look more illuminated and healthy as well as give it a matte finish. I then used my Revlon Colorstay foundation for oily-combination skin to get a flawless, almost full matte base and following up with my Rimmel Stay Matte powder to set the makeup and keep the oil at bay.
To give my face a bit more warmth and definition I used the Rimmel Natural Waterproof bronzer and New York Color Mosaic powder in their pink shade.
A big part of this look is of course the eyes, so I went in with my W7 In The Buff palette and grabbed Silk as a base colour and followed up with Earth and applying it over half of my lid, a golden colour for a bit of a contrast. For the crease I applied Topaz, a shimmery dark brown and for a more glittery golden look, I used Camel and lightly patted this over the middle of my lid, giving it that warm golden look. Then using Sand, a matte off white colour I applied this on my brow bone and on the inner corners of my eyes and blended it together with the crease colour for a bit less of a harsh look.
Filling my brows in with a slightly lighter brown eyebrow pencil by L’Oreal and applying my L’Oreal Collection Exclusive Pure Reds lipstick in Blake’s True Red (matte, creamy blue toned red) to finish off the look and lastly applying my Bourjois 3D Max gloss and I’m ready to go!
