Blingtastic EOTD with Goldilux and Tiara

Sometimes I do my makeup knowing exactly where it's going and other times I just open up a makeup drawer at random and see what jumps out at me.

I did the latter today and the first things I noticed were my Sugarpill Chromalust loose shadows in Goldilux and Tiara so I tried to put them in a look. Generally my rule for gold and silver (jewellery at least) is that I never wear them together but rules are made to be broken.

This look was super easy to create and if you're interested:

I started by priming my lids with Urban Decay Primer Potion
I applied MAC Soft Ochre Paint Pot all over my lid
I then used my Milani Liquifeye pencil in Gold over my lid leaving the centre of my lid free of colour
I used Milani Liquifeye pencil in Silver on the centre of my lid
I patted SSugarpill Chromalust shadow in Goldilux on my lid over the gold pencil
I patted Sugarpill Chromalust shadow in Tiara on the centre of my lid over the silver pencil
I blended the edges where the silver and gold shadows meet so that the line wasn't so harsh
I blended the crease with MAC Cork eyeshadow
I darkened the crease with MAC Concrete eyeshadow
I used MAC Bamboo eyeshadow to blend out the crease and up to the browbone
I applied MAC Solar White eyeshadow as a highlight around my tear duct
I lined my top lashline with Rimmel Studio Liquid Liner in Extreme Black and coated my lashes with Loreal Voluminous Mascara in Blackest Black


  1. Absolutely stunning! The simplest looks are often the prettiest, and I adore this one :)

  2. What a great idea! I never thought to mix my metallics either, but this totally works. Love the EOTD.

  3. i remember you mentioned previously that you got an allergic reaction to goldilux. how'd it work out this time? i keep hoping i can use it one day... for now it's just sitting pretty in my kit! :(

  4. I must try this combination! it is so attractive :)

    btw, I cannot believe I missed the FOTD post - you are SO beautiful :D

  5. Beautiful look!! I love the lighter patch right in the middle of the lid, it makes it just glow!

  6. Thanks Sara-May! I know what you mean, sometimes the most complicated looks don't look half as flattering as something really simple :)

    Arianne: Thank you! I was trying to 'think outside the box' and mix colours I wouldn't usually mix.

    MzCherrie: Thanks :)

    Arianne Cruz: Thank you :)

    VoodooGirl: Still allergic unfortunately but I can wear it for about 8-10 hours IF I do the following:
    - Use it dry instead of wet
    -Use it over multiple bases so it doesn't directly touch my skin
    - Don't wear it on days that are humid or to places like concerts or clubbing where it can get very hot and sticky.

    I can't use it 2 days in a row either so I usually wear it once every few weeks without problems :)

    Thanks Ki! You're too sweet :) I'm finding it so hard to keep up to date with everyones blog posts now that I've found so many blogs too follow! Too little time!

    Thanks Aseya :)

    Thanks Kayleigh! I was trying to go for that kind of glowing look :D

  7. this is SO pretty, and it compliments your skintone really well!

  8. thank you for the tips! i'll give it a go one of these days and keep those in mind :)

  9. I just bought Goldilux and have yet to take it out from the box. I hope to give it a try very soon. Very cute look!

  10. Thanks Caitlin. I'm obsessed with gold for that reason :)

    voodoo girl: Yay, hope it works out ok!

    SahilyAnais MUA: Thanks :) It's a gorgeous colour. Can't wait to see what you do with it.
