Simple Gold Spring Makeup Look

 

The other day I was absolutely full of a cold (still am actually, how long will this plague drag on for?!), and I didn’t quite dare wear my trusty winged eyeliner, because I knew I would probably end up with eyes so watery that it all came off in a panda-esque mess throughout the evening. So I thought I would try something fairly simple, and I went for this gold spring makeup look.
I’ve been trying out a few new products lately, makeup wise. I’ll have some separate posts up soon on what new makeup products I’m loving and why, but let’s talk through the main products I used in this look.

One thing that’s new in the makeup bag lately is the Bourjois Colorband eyeshadow stick in ‘Beige Minimaliste’, which is a lovely light gold. It claims to be waterproof, and 24 hour wear, and I honestly do find that it stays on very well. I love golds for my eyes, and I wore this with just a touch of ‘Smog’ from my Urban Decay Naked Palette in the crease (I’m still loving the original Naked 1, and you can tell that Smog is my favourite shade because I have well and truly hit pan on this one!).I highlighted my brow bone and inner corner with the Bourjois Little Round Pot Eyeshadow in 08 which is a lovely champagne shade, and then finished off my eyes with a few layers of the Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Waterproof – because waterpoofing was an essential that day!

For my brows, I have been reaching for my Soap & Glory Brow Archery Pencil a lot recently, I have it in ‘Blondeshell’ and it’s the perfect shade for me. It’s difficult to find eyebrow pencils which are ashey enough for me, but this one is spot on. I hear this is a dupe for the much raved about Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz, which I haven’t tried, but I can confirm that this is a brilliant eyebrow staple.

I thought I would make my lips the main point of focus, since the chances of me managing to sneeze off lipstick are slim to none, and finished off the look with my favourite Benefit Lipstick in the shade ‘Do Tell’, which is a gorgeous plummy purple. Quite an autumn lip colour I suppose, but I am fully prepared to work it in the spring!

The low down on what I was wearing on my face will be coming soon, in a separate post, so stay tuned for that!
