Holiday Makeup--Golden Smokey Eyes

Hey you! It is the weekend...finally! What are your weekend plans? I'm still residing in Sick City over here, so my plans involve lots of Christmas movies on the couch and lots of hot cocoa. But in case you have a party soon, I wanted to share a holiday makeup look with you.

I'm sharing just the eye look today, but my lipstick is MAC Ruby Woo.

Here's the makeup I used for my eyes:
  • Too Face Chocolate Bar (ps I want the new one, Santa)
  • Maybelline Lash Sensational (review next week)
  • Rimmel Scandaleyes shadow stick
  • Kat Von D liner

-I began by placing the shadow stick over lids as a base.
1-I took a flat brush and patted this gold shade on the lid.
2-With a crease brush, I applied this milk chocolate into the crease and used a blending brush to blend it out.
3- Using a smaller crease blush, I applied this chocolate shade into the outer "v"  and blended it out.
4-I then applied this darker chocolate in the outer "v" but made a smaller "v" and blended that out.
-I took a pencil brush and smudged that darkest shade under my bottom lashes.
-I applied a matte cream to under my brow with a clean pencil brush.
-I curled lashes, applied mascara, and liquid liner.

Here are the eyes--it looks a bit more taupe here but is more golden in person.

I also made you a video showing this look! It's a collab with Tanya and some lovely bloggers:

  32. I love that palette, just the best colors! That lipstick really suits you!

  36. I hope you're feeling better, buddy. I love this makeup look. I've always wanted to achieve it but try as I do, even following clear instructions like yours, doesn't get me there. I think only assistance in person will help me understand how to do this.

  37. So pretty! The gold tones look gorgeous with your blue eyes. Hope you feel better!
