Golden Eyeshadow Look

Happy Tuesday Ladies!

I have created this simple  beautiful golden eyeshadow look using one of the ColourPop eyeshadows. If you haven't seen already, I swathed some of the ColourPop eyeshadows I recently purchased a couple weeks ago. 

This look is perfect for a date night, going out, or everyday glam! 

Products Used:

Milani Bella Eyes Gel Powder Eyeshadow in Bella Sand – This eyeshadow can be purchased in drugstores that carry Milani products such as Walgreens and Walmart. 

ColourPop Eyeshadow in Get Lucky

Revlon Colorstay 12 Hour Eye Shadow – This is an older palette so it is no longer sold in stores. If you do not have this palette you can use a brown shadow such as Frappe by Makeup Geek or a more berry toned shadow such as Last Dance by Makeup Geek.

NYC Liquid Eyeliner in 887 Black – Can be purchased from drugstores that sell NYC products. 

Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof Eyeliner in Noir Intense #88

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

First, I used the Milani eyeshadow only on the lid as my base shadow. It has some shimmer so you don't want to apply too much. I used the darkest shade from the Revlon Colorstay palette in my crease. I generally would use a transition shade in my crease to allow the darker shade to blend smoothly into the crease, but I didn't this time. When working with dark colors, you want to make sure you really blend it well into the crease so there are no harsh lines and the shadow looks even. I brought the crease shadow down to my under eye lash line, to create a subtle smokey effect and to make the eyeshadow look more cohesive. I finished the eyeshadow look by placing ColourPop Get Lucky Eyeshadow to the lid. Get Lucky is such a beautiful gold shade! I love it. 

I used the NYC Liquid Eyeliner to create a winged line. You can create whatever winged liner shape that works best for your eye shape. I have hooded eyelids so I can't always create a thick winged liner because it can take away from the eyeshadow. For my bottom waterline I used the Chanel Waterproof eyeliner. This liner is my favorite for my water line. It is a very intense and thick black. Lastly, to complete the look I used Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara on my eyelashes. To make this look more glam you can wear false lashes! I recommend Velour Whispie Sweet Nothings Lashes

This eye look would be great paired with a nude lip or even a dark berry lip. 

If you recreate this look tag me in your photo using the hashtag #jadanicola I would love to see your recreations!
