I’m BACK! Been a crazy April and May, but I’ve got some inspiration and a new computer on the way – YIPPEE!
All the blogging about prom inspiration has really inspired me to not only create a fancy eye look, but find a place to wear a gown. Why isn’t adult prom a thing?
There’s also a ton of products in my collection that I purchased over the last few months and haven’t put to any use. So, I was able to sit down and create something since the theme of pink and rose gold seemed to lie amongst a lot of the ‘untouched’ items from the Sephora VIB Rouge Sale. For any application, I also used this Morphe Brush set (be sure to check out Google for an affiliate code – I don’t have my own, but there’s ALWAYS a million out there). I broke down the look step by step – let me know what you think!
Step One: Using a fluffy blending brush, I took ‘Candied Peach’ from the Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette and created some crease definition. This is meant to serve as my transition shade. The lighter shade on my eyelid here is just concealer I used as a primer before starting.
Step Two: On the corners of my eyes, I applied ‘Carmelized’ and then went over it with ‘Just Peachy’ for a shimmery look using the Pointed Blender Brush. I deepened the crease with a bit of the ‘Charmed, I’m Sure’, VERY lightly (as the pigment on this dark brown is pretty heavy, and I didn’t want it to overpower the pink tones I was going for).
Step Three: Once the corners were defined, I laid down a thin layer of Cover FX Customer Enhancer Drops in Rose Gold (see my review a few weeks back for swatches on this bad boy). Over that, I stuck some Rose Gold pigment. I used the one from the MAC Holiday Collection in Stardream, which is obviously not available anymore. BUT, I found this INCREDIBLE site that lists over 50+ places that you can find something similar. However, I’m a sucker for MAC Pigments, so Rose Gold in their collection is also a viable choice!
Step Four: I finished the look with some Ciate Liner & Tarteist Lash Paint. I didn’t have any lashes handy, but feel free to make it even more dramatic with these (some of my favorites).
