Getting Ready for Christmas #4: Red and Gold

Hi, everyone! In today's post I'm going to show you, what I did for day 4 in Getting Ready for Christmas challenge. This time the topic was red and gold. I did a simple golden eye look with red lips, which I think it's pretty classic for Christmas.


I also made a tutorial to give you an idea, what can you wear on those festive days. I decided to use Sleek Storm palette for this look, because I was neglecting it too much lately and it's one of my favourites.
Step 1: Prime your lid. Here I used NYX Milk as a primer.
Step 2: Appy a golden eyeshadow over your lid.
Step 3: Use a light brown matte eyeshadow, apply it in crease and then blend it on your browbone.
Step 4: Use a darker brown shade, apply it in crease and blend it out, but not too high on your browbone, because lighter eyeshadow should still be noticeable.


Step 5: Apply the same golden shade, that you used on lids, in inner corner of your eye and on 2/3 of you lower lashline. On outer 1/3 of your lowerlashlie apply darker brown shade and blend it together with golden shade.
Step 6: Use highlighter under your eyebrow and apply white pencil on your waterline. Here I used NYX Milk, which is perfect for waterline, because it lasts long and is also great for highlighting.
Step 7: Apply an eyeliner. You can also skip this step, if you don't like eyeliner or aplly thinner line, but as you know, I like my eyeliner a bit thicker. 
Step 8: Apply a mascara and you're done with eyes.


I have gorgeous false lashes, that would go perfectly with this look, but on that day I just couldn't apply them on my eyes, so I have photos only with my natural lashes. For the lips I went with red. First I applied Essence lipliner in Femme Fatale and then over it NYX gloss in True Red. On cheeks I also used red blush - Maybelline 501. Because I always look on photos like I don't have any blush, I applied a bit more this time. Tell me, does it look ok or it is too much?
