I don’t get many nights out with JUST the hubby. If we go out, it’s usually somewhere that you can wear jeans and a t-shirt and there are TVs on the wall and chicken nuggets on the menu. But when I do get the opportunity to go out, my first thought for my makeup would be to combine the colors black and gold, bc they go together like peanut butter and jelly. It’s a color scheme that just works on clothes and eye makeup for a chic and sophisticated combination. Your basic black along with some gold metal shimmer = perfect Fall evening out look!
MAC’s Antique Gold glitter brillants to line ONLY the LOWER lash line for my subtle pop of gold!
I used a flat tipped brush and dipped it in glitter glue from Sally Beauty (cheap cheap) then applied to lower lash line AFTER mascara was applied.
(That way some of the glitter stuck to my lashes creating more sparkle!)
I thought this black and gold eye makeup look would go along quite nicely with my fantasy outfit and accessories I put together through polyvore.com. I say “fantasy” bc most of these items, this mama could NEVER afford, but it’s so much fun to dream;-) And I just watched Rachel Zoe last night, and I feel like I’m living her life of styling by pulling together high end items on a whimsy with cost not being an option!! I put a plum colored top with my black and gold, bc no color goes better with these two than the color of royalty-right?!! And of course a little leopard print must be thrown in there with the cute ring!
