Christmas Gold Eyes

Everybody loves a good old gold smokey eye around Christmas right? I love the look and it makes me feel so festive! Once again, just like my winter day time look, I am using the Makeup Revolution Iconic 2 palette which I absolutely love.



First I applied NYX jumbo eye pencil in milk all over my lid like always. Then A was applied all over my lid, I am not actually a fan of this shade of gold on my skin tone so B was then put over the top to create a lighter gold (1). To create a subtle crease colour just to give depth, I added C just above my socket (2). To make this darker D was applied right over the top (3). You could just stop at this stage but I still wanted the look to be darker therefore E was applied just to my outer v. Be careful with this shade though, only apply a little bit as it is not as easy to blend like the others! Finally I added winged liner, mascara and eyeliner on my bottom lash line and its done! If you would like to see what face products, eyeliner and mascara I used, it can be found in this post.

Why do my eyebrows look so different!?

The lipstick that finished off the look is by Makeup Revolution in shade Rebel with Cause. Sadly I have to say that I am not a fan. First off the shade looks so much darker in the bullet! Also, as you can probably see from the photos, as soon as you rub your lips together the lipstick wears off the centre of your lips. In these photos I had it on for 2 minutes! This is just my opinion though, you never know the lipstick might work for you. At £1 it is definitely worth a try.




What is your go to winter look?

  18. Such a gorgeous palette, did you know that their Iconic range are dupes for the Urban Decay Naked palettes? :) This is the second, for example. I had no clue until I was sent their Iconic 3 palette - there's a full review and eyeshadow look on my blog if you're interested - and it's an exact dupe for the UD Naked 3 :) so amazing considering the affordable price! You look gorgeous, such a great festive look.
