Velvet Gold Makeup Look

|

Do you ever see an eyeshadow or set of shades that immediately speak to you? That's what happens the moment I spot a stunning gold or purple shadow. Caryl Baker Visage recently sent me a few new products to try and this is the sultry look I came up with! The best part? You could rock this to work or take it out to town.


For the eyes, I wanted to create a subtle velvet effect using a blend between purple, pink and orange with a pop of metallic gold in the centre. To give the shadow more drama, I used gel eyeliner and many coats of mascara.

Eye products used:

While I don't necessarily bake when I'm sculpting my face, I do like to bring brightness under my eyes, around my cheeks and along my t-zone. I begin by applying foundation all over my face, then use concealer in the areas that I want to highlight and go in with the bronzer and blush.

Face products used:



I love a flirty, feminine lip, so I blended two shades together, MAC Cosmetics "Verve" and "Captive", to get this unique nude pink colour. It is subtle enough that it doesn't take away from the dramatic eyes, but also shows that you didn't forget your lipstick!
