~Metallic FOTD~ Antipodean Beauties Challenge


What I love about these weekly challenges is that it allows me to draw from my inspiration images and come up with looks that I might not necessarily wear anywhere else. For the metallic challenge, I knew that I wanted to do gold brows and lips and my inspiration for what I came up with were the looks below.


Dior Spring 2014 RTW (from Style.com)


From Fendi Spring 2012 RTW (from Style.com)


Amazing bright pink and gold lips (From http://blog.mawi.co.uk/2011/03/16/read-my-lips/)

Here’s my interpretation:


The main players in this look were Sugarpill Goldilux Ioose eyeshadow and Sugarpill Mochi Eyeshadow from the Heartbreaker palette. I used Mochi on my lids and then used Makeup Forever Aqua Cream in Gold in the crease. I blended out the crease with Goldilux and then mixed it with Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray so I could use it wet as a liquid liner. I also wanted to colour my brows in with it as well but my brows were too dark/thick so I went with the gold foil instead. I just used gold foil I picked up from an art store and stuck it down with Duo Lash Adhesive.




I used Goldilux wet and applied it to my lips and then patted Mochi in the centre of the lips. I also used the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On eye pencil in El Dorado as a lip liner.


I used Burberry Velvet Foundation as a base, Tom Ford Illuminating Highlight Pen as a concealer and highlighted my cheeks with Goldilux. The end look was kind of space agey but mint and gold will always be one of my favourite colour combinations.

      Thanks Olivia! It was so much fun but also frustrating because gold foil is such a delicate product to work with. I highly recommend it though πŸ˜€
