For this episode of Makeup Wars, we are talking about our favorite holiday eye look. I haven’t been participating in Makeup Wars lately, so I’m really excited about being back in the saddle!
This is an eye look that I actually created this fall, when I decided antique gold was THE color of the season. I’m still really loving it. Here is how I created the look:
- Prep with primer. I always seem to use Urban Decay’s Eye Primer Potion in Eden.
- Lay down a base color all over the eye. I honestly can’t remember what I used here, but my new obsession is Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo Metal in Barely Branded.
- On the lid, I applied MAC’s Old Gold pigment powder. It is bright and noticeable – I love it!
- In the crease, I applied Urban Decay eyeshadow in Blackout. You don’t have to go full on black, try Oil Slick if Blackout is too much for you.
- Blend, blend, and blend some more.
- Apply false lashes. I used Ardell Glamour Lashes in Black 011 with Duo lash glue.
- Black liner comes next. I like mine all smudgy and dark, so I’m a fan of kajal liners. Try NYX Kohl Kajal Black Eyeliner. Make sure you fill in any gaps on your lash line. It’s also a good idea to tight line, if you can do it.
- Curl lashes with curler and apply a coat of mascara to help falsies blend with natural lashes. I used Make Up For Ever Smoky Extravagant Mascara in black.
- Blend again, for good measure. Fix your cat eye if that’s your thing.
As a side note, in the photo you can see my lashes don’t blend well with the falsies – that’s because I was using Latisse, and they made my lashes scary spider long! They were kind of unmanageable, so I stopped using it. Also, it was super expensive.
