Makeup Looks for Holidays: 3 takes on golden shades


Hello my lovelies! We're only a week away from Christmas eve, where did this year go?
I'm here to share with you some ideas on makeup looks for special occasions using metallic shades. Remeber my last week's post on holidays makeup looks using silver?  Well, today is the turn for the GOLDEN shades!



Look N°1: Pale cool gold

Just a wash of white gold on the lids and the accent put on rich sultry red for the lips. Suitable for skin with cool undertones. I would recommend vampy red nails with this look!

For this look I used:
Eyes
- NYX Above & beyond full coverage concealer in 04Beige
- Urban decay eyeshadow primer potion
- Catrice The Shanghai Collection eyes & cheeks palette:Oriental pearl Tower & Cloud 9 bar
- Catrice Absolute eye colour 420 Talk like an Egyptian
- Amuse Ultra fine eyeliner Dark brown
- Nyx Doll eye Mascara Volume
Face:
- NYX Above & beyond full coverage concealer in 04Beige
- MAC Pro long wear foundation NC20
- Benefit Hello flawless compact powder Beige
- Essence Vintage district collection It's popul-art
Lips
- MAC Cremesheen lipstick Dare you!

Look N°2: Warm gold 

Yellow and orange shades bring warmness to the gold for the eyes. Just a little nudy sparkle on the lips for a look that can take you from day to night. I think this look is specially suitable for skin with warm undertones. I think OPI Golden eye would be a good match for the nails, though I'm not wearing it for the pictures.

  3. You make choosing impossible, Nati :-) But if I'd have to pick just one look then I'd go for the second one.

  6. Hey girly, I'm digging all three looks! I've been more into neutral/cool-toned neutrals recently, but I am definitely planning to wear something warmer on the Christmas Eve!
