I wanted to fierce up my look for today (without looking too freaky, I am a mother of 3 and I’m just headed to a taco joint for lunch) so I did it by mixing two rich colors together…Black and Gold.
There is no easier way to get a dramatic, but wearable, look than with black. And by adding a little gilded gold, well then you’ve immediately got your fierce look!!
- A good rich black liner. I used Rimmel London’s Exxagerate liner in “noir.”($6) I used it on my upper lid and on the lower and inside the lower rim. Black out the whole lash line for a dramatic effect!
- Shimmery gold shadow. I used a loose Bare Minerals glimmer powder in “true gold.”($13) This was applied on top of my Stila “twig” (a shimmery earthen brown, $18) eyeshadow pan as well as along the lower lash line all the way into the tear duct area for a golden glow!
- A gold toned lip gloss or lip stick. I love love L’Oreal Infallible lip gloss in Dulce de Leche ($9). It’s a beautiful neutral brown color with just enough golden sparkle in it. I’ve read it’s one of Eva Longoria’s fave colors.
