Burning Gold | A Makeup Tutorial

Today I am back with a makeup tutorial - something I haven't done in quite a while since they aren't as popular on here as my other type of posts, yet at the same time they are still one of my favourite pieces to prepare, edit and write up. Today's look is quite natural yet dressy and you could get away with it at any occasion, whether casual or formal so here we go !

As always, there is a video from my YouTube channel that you can watch but if you prepare reading the tutorial in writing, below will hope summarise it perfectly !

1. So first, I used the Maybelline Fit Me concealer in shade 15 to prime my eye lids and then used the very first shade out of my W7 palette as a base for the heavier colours. 

2. Starting on the proper eye makeup, I used a gold shade out of my Perfect Look palette over the outer half of my eyelids and crease.  I then went over this with a darker, more bronze-like shade from the W7 palette. 

3. I then took the red-toned brown from the PL - lets just abbreviate it for space sake - palette and applied it over my outer corners and crease to intensify the look. Finally to complete the crease, I used the darkest brown on the very edge.

4. To give the eyes a darker look, I used the last shade from the W7 palette on my lower lash line. I finally finished the eye shadow by taking a makeup wipe to beyond my outer corners and below the lash line to sharpen the look. You could also use a cotton bud dipped in cleanser, in place of this. 

5. After this, I lined my upper lash line, using the Essence 2in1 eyeliner and winged it out to the side and then applied the Maybelline Great Lash mascara to both my upper and lower lashes, although this is completely optional. 

6. To complete this entire look, I filled in the ends of my brows a slight bit heavier than usual and then used a bronze gloss over my lips. 

Although you cannot see it best from the side, this is the completed 'Burning Gold' makeup look and I hope you enjoyed this post !

I'll try to have some kind of decent content up later on in the week !

  2. I have been loving more gold and red coloured shades recently so I will make sure to give this look a go! I have never used any of the products you mentioned besides the concealer but the others seem great. Great post!
