Metallic Love

Hey y’all! Happy Sunday! Day two and I am going strong. Lol. I know, I know, don’t count my chickens before they are hatched. Lol. I am OBSESSED with green and gold metallic shadows. My inspiration has definitely been coming from good ol’ Mother Nature herself. img_1771

I am sure the fact that green compliments my eyes helps a little but you know. So here is the rundown. . .

I ALWAYS start with a base. Usually white. My favorite base to use is the NYX Eyeshadow Base in 01 white. I forgot the picture, sorry. It is super cheap and covers so well. You can buy it here.

After putting my base down, I go in with a color that would either match my skin color or brighten it even further. I laid down a base of Weenie from ColourPop.

ColourPop shadows go on best with synthetic brushes. This color is a beautiful rose gold color. It is a perfect metallic starting point. You definitely cannot beat the price of ColourPop shadows. $5, I mean, COME ON, $5?! It is found here. Get it before it goes away because it is a collab with KathleenLights, so you never know how long it is going to last.

After that I went in with Buxom’s Mink Magnet. The one I have is a sample size. I received this from the Sephora Play subscription and I LOVE it.

This is a beautiful metallic cool brown. I used this in my crease and my outer vee. It goes one super creamy and it is crazy pigmented. It can be purchase here. After I did this, I thought I wanted to pair this awesome brown with a stunning green.

I happened to find the Urban Decay Urban Spectrum palette on sale for $39. This palette is so unique. Unfortunately, this palette is no longer available and the only place I could even find it for sale was on eBay. Sorry!

The colors in this palette are pigmented and unique. The color in the pan is the color on the skin. I decided to reach for Protest.

It is a the perfect mossy/army green. With that, I packed this into my outer see and bended the crap out of it to get rid of the harsh edges.  After I finished this, the lid has lost some of its pop. I wanted it to be super shimmery. So I added Jordana Made to Last Liquid Eyeshadow in Forever Sand.

This stuff starts out as a beautiful liquid and turns to into a creamy shadow that is super blendable.

I decided to line my water line with the Sephora Contour Eye Pencil in Flirting Game. It can be purchased here. I got this from one of my Sephora Play subscriptions.

It is a pretty shimmer taupe. It glided on fairly well and was nicely pigmented. I unfortunately can’t used these types of pencils on my waterline because when they break down, they get under my contacts and dry them out. So, using this as a top lash liner worked really well.

Finally for the brow bone highlight and inner corner I reached for one of my all time favorite highlighter. The Lorac Light Source Illuminating Highlighter in Starlight.

It is a beautiful white opal color. It can be purchased here. It is worth every penny and after buying one of these I had to buy the entire collection. I reach for these more than my Becca ones. I am going to devote and entire post to these bad boys this month because they absolutely deserve it.

After the highlight of the inner corner and brow bone, I finished my entire face. Then I went back to smoke out the bottom lash line. I followed the same steps as my eyes. Starting with Mink Magnet by Buxom on the outside 1/4 of the lower lash line, Protest on the next 1/4 of the lower lash line, followed by Wennie (this was easier to use than the liquid eyeshadow and finally the Lorac Starlight.

I wish I could have gotten better pictures because I absolutely loved this look. It was so fun and even though it is a little more glam than everyday, I would rock this as an everyday look.
