Everyday Gold Eye Makeup

I am all about gold eye makeup lately. Maybe it’s that fall is here and, I’m starting to reach for neutrals more and more, but recently there is something about gold that particularly floats my boat.

I have been falling back on this look almost every day I have been in the UK, easily switching it to more night appropriate by adding a darker brown in the crease.

1. Start off by priming your lid and applying under-eye concealer for any dark circles.

2. Apply a golden shadow to your entire lid. This is Half Baked from the Naked palette. Thanks Joanna for letting me know how awesome this shade is.

Apply a white or beige eyeliner to your lower waterline. My new favorite discovery is beige eyeliner. I had heard people talk about it before, but I didn’t try it until I started using a sample that came with my Glamoflauge concealer after I got to the UK. It really does a nice job of brightening your eyes without looking unnatural.

4. Apply a dark brown shadow to the outer corner of your lower lash line and your upper lash line. Lining your eyes with a brown shade adds definition without looking too out of place.

5. Apply mascara and, you’re ready to go.


Do you prefer neutral or more vivid eyeshadow shades?

      :) I haven’t tried the green and gold yet. I’ll have to give it a try.

    I prefer neutral eyeshadows, because I like wearing a bright lippie!

    Such a beautiful eye look! I’m going to have to try that out. By the way that top that you picked up from Primark looks really lovely on you.

    i’m a neutrals girl for sure, but a pop of color every now and then is fun!

    • Sam September 25, 2013 / 4:44 pm

      That’s true. Usually, I’m a neutral girl myself!

    I’ve been pairing neutral shadows with colorful eyeliners lately and I love the looks!

      I use the Panasonic Lumix SZ7 – it’s a point and shoot, but it works really well.
