Rose Gold Eyes ft. Winged Liner

Hey Everyone!
 I am finally back! I have been looking everywhere for my missing MAC pigment. I wanted to create a look with it, but it was gone! I ended up finding it in one of the drawers, so thankfully my collection is back to normal. Sigh.
Anyways, I wanted to try an eye look that could go from day to night, and could be created in a couple minutes. Impossible, right? I think I have figured out something that can come together and can be as dramatic as needed. Keep reading to find out how!

I first started off by priming and brightening my eye lids. Whenever I layer darker shadows, I light to start with a lighter canvas. If you are out of primer or you don’t use one, concealer can work too. Apply this to your lid, lower lash line, and brow bone to create a fresh canvas.

The reason this look is so simple is because of one product: MAC Pigments. I applied MAC’s Rose Gold Pigment all over my lid with a wet 252 brush. Rose gold is now a discontinued shade, but Antiqued Gold is very similar.

Next we want to blend out the harsh line at the crease. I chose MAC’s Patina eyeshadow to add a bit of depth to the eyes while blending. I originally applied this with a small fluff brush and then blended it out with a blending brush. This doesn’t have to be perfect; you can still blend it out more later.

I wanted a sharp wing to make my lashes appear fuller and add more intensity to the look. To create a fluid line, I applied MAC’s Typographic eyeshadow with a lightly dampened 266 brush to my upper lash line and followed to curve of my lower lash line to create the wing.

The easiest way to add intensity to a look is to add eyeliner. I applied my favorite waterline safe black eyeliner, Urban Decay’s Zero, to my waterline. You can set this with Typographic to ensure a long wearing look.

If you need to highlight the brow bone and blend out the crease any more, I would recommend doing it now. You can see the preparations because the eyeliner is now in place. 

The final step for the eyes is to add mascara, and you are done! I love how the pigment shines; it will bring out any eye color. The reason I love this look so much is it can easily be adjusted, so tweak it to your needs!

Can you tell this picture was taken in different lighting? I went from natural lighting to warm lights because it was getting darker outside, so it explains the warn tones.

For the lips, I kept it simple and combined two lip pencils. I chose NYX’s Soft Beige and Natural shades to create the finishing touch. Add a dab of your favorite clear gloss to the middle to achieve fuller looking lips.

That’s it! I hope this was helpful to those of you searching for a way to change it up; tell me in the comments if you like the new types of tutorials.
