Eye of the Day: Purple, Pink and Gold Tones

Hey Loves!

As a lot of you might already know, I'm getting married in December and so my life is currently all things wedding, makeup being one of them. I thought I would just experiment on myself and so this is the Eye look I came up with. I wanted to pay attention to my eyes so I am not wearing any other makeup apart from something on my lips just to add dimension to my face.

I used a Pink and a Purple shadow through the crease of my eye and on the lower lash line. I also used a Matte Black shadow on the outer V of my eye. I used a wet Gold shadow for my eyelid and highlighted my inner corner and waterline with a Nyx Jumbo Pencil. Because my eyelid is shimmery, I used a matte white shadow for my brow bone highlight. I then lined my eyes and applied false lashes.

Products used:
  • MUA Glamour Nights Palette
  • NYX Jumbo Pencil - Milk
  • Maybelline Falsies Flared Mascara - Black
  • Red Cherry False Lashes - No 48
  • Benefit They're Real Push Up Liner
  • Mac Eyebrow Pencil - Spiked
  • NYX Xtreme Lip Cream - Pinky Nude

I am not sure who is doing my makeup and what I want etc so I thought a little experimenting would lead me in to the right direction. I realised though, that to the naked eye, this makeup seems like a lot, but once the flash was on, it washed the makeup out. Does that mean I need my makeup to be a lot heavier to the naked eye for it to show up on camera? What are the chances I'll still look like myself on the day with such a heavy 'face' on? Because this makeup, on camera, seemed border-line party makeup. 

Any help/ advice would be greatly appreciated.

Much Love,
