FOTD festive golds.


a recent makeup i did for a christmas party. of course i chose a shimmery golden eye makeup! and since a lot of food was involved in this party, i only went for the pink lip instead of a full-on red.

for the face:

foundation: mix of Guerlain Parure Extreme in #02 Beige Clair (1) and Rouge Bunny Rouge Milk Aquarelle Foundation in Almond Milk Parfait (2), applied with Le Métier de Beauté Blush Brush (6)

under-eye concealer: Giorgio Armani Master Corrector in #2 (4) and Giorgio Armani High Precision Retouch Concealer in #3 (5) applied with the fingers

contour: NARS Multiple Bronzer in Cap Vert (10) applied with MAC 109 brush (9)

powder: Chanel Poudre Universelle Libre in #20 Clair (3) applied with A'Squirrel Pure Squirrel Powder Brush (7)

blush: NARS Orgasm (11) applied with RMK Cheek Brush (9)

for the eyes & lips:

brows: MAC Omega eyeshadow (1) applied with Louise Young Brow Brush LY30 (2), additionally K-Palette 1-Day-Tattoo Brow Pen in Grayish Brown (3) to draw fine hairs for more stucture and a natural look

lips: Chanel Rouge Allure Lacque in #707 Empire (18)

eye makeup:

  • smooth UDPP (4) on the lid and lower lashline - for a party the makeup must stay fixed!
  • metallic gold shade in L'Oreal HIP Gilded duo (5) applied to the inner 2/3 of the lid and lower lashline with Sigma SS252 (8) brush.
  • Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill Silk Eyeshadow #6 (6), a metallic olive bronze, applied with the same brush to the outer parts with a soft flick outwards
  • both shades blended out and together with Edward Bess Luxury Eye Brush (9)
  • with Tom Ford Eyeshadow Brush (10), apply a bit of MAC Vanilla Pigment (7) to the tearduct area and below the arch of the brow. blend it above the golden shadow for a warm glow.
  • create a thick, slightly smudgy winged line with Essence Gel Eyeliner in London Baby (14), a shimmery cool dark brown, with For Your Beauty Lip Brush (12). smudge a thin line onto the most outer part of the lower lashline and meet up with the upper wing.
  • draw a very thin line extremely close to the upper lashline with K-Palette 1-Day-Tattoo Real Lasting Eyeliner (13) onto the brown liner to deepen it and thicken your lashes.
  • curl lashes with Shu Uemura curlers (15), apply one coat of Shiseido The Perfect Mascara (16, a samle size)
  • apply false eyelashes (17) - i used segments and applied with THIS METHOD for an absolutely undetectable result
  • apply black waterproof eyeliner to the upper inner rim to blend in your false lashes, i used P2 Perfect Look! Kajal in 010 Black (11).
