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:

  1. Prep with primer. I always seem to use Urban Decay’s Eye Primer Potion in Eden.
  2. 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.
  3. On the lid, I applied MAC’s Old Gold pigment powder. It is bright and noticeable – I love it!
  4. 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.
  5. Blend, blend, and blend some more.
  6. Apply false lashes. I used Ardell Glamour Lashes in Black 011 with Duo lash glue.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
