Look: Shades of Gold

I had a client that wanted a look done with golds to match an ivory dress with gold in it. So I did a look that might go well with such a dress, but I paired it with a black shirt. Did you know…that MAC employees wear all black because light doesn’t reflect off of black, so the bright lights in the department store won’t reflect the color of their clothing onto the faces of customers they’re doing makeup for. Makes sense! Plus they can wear any kind of makeup they want with all black!



For this look I used:

  • Eyes: UDPPS (primer), Cash Flow PP (base), Gold Mode Pigment (inner lid), Rose Gold Pigment (outer lid), Gorgeous Gold (middle lid), Goldmine (middle lid), Black Tied (crease), Dreammaker (highlight), Blacktrack Fluidline (upper lashline), Feline Kohl Power (waterline), UD 24/7 Honey liner (lower lashline), Chanel Exceptionnel mascara
  • Cheeks: Margin blush
  • Lips: Cream Cerise lipstick + lipgloss I can’t remember…sorry!

    this is also a pretty look….i’m not really into (drab) neutrals but i like to do a gold eye from time to time. its neutral to me, lol….

    that makes sense abt the all black attire. the last time i went to a MAC counter (been a while….i’m a recessionista nowadays, lol) the MA was wearing a black corset that revealed so much, i admitted to her that i was having a hard time trying to find something to look at considering so much of her breasts dangled in my face. it was awkward. but she was a very sweet young lady…..but awkward.

    i guess u can wear ANYTHING as long as its black….

    LOL I agree that they are OTT sometimes! I don’t like myself “hanging out” so to speak.

    And I’m with you Lady – I’m not really into drab neutrals much either. I prefer lots of color and smokey styles, but so many others like the neutrals…so I gotta change it up from time to time :-) Thanks for checking out my site!
