Jade and gold

A couple of days ago we went out for a dinner and I thought of creating a look to match the mysterious shady atmosphere of the restaurant we were going to. Yes, you read it right: not lofty matters but a restaurant was my inspiration. I will post photos of my full outfit later. Yet today the story is about the makeup.

It has been created using two products that I picked up at a beauty blogger swap: L’Oreal HIP eyeshadows in Sassy and NYX golden glitter (see image below). As they say one man’s trash another man’s treasure. Out of all 125 shades of green, my absolute favourite is jade. You can easily tell that from my Twitter profile photo. I love gold too. So as soon as I saw these shimmery jade eyeshadows and glitter on a table, their destiny was determined and… here they are fully in action!

How to: A thick layer of eyeshadow with a hint of glitter on top. If you are interested to know how to recreate the look you can find a step-by-step smokey eye makeup tutorial here.

A special thank you to charming Rosy who made my day by bringing these treasures to a beauty swap.

A very special thank you to wonderful & super patient Joseph who took these (and many other) photos of me.

And to you all lovelies:

Have a Fabulous Friday!

    Gorgeous. The eye makeup has the smoky, moody 60s style but it’s also pretty because of the shimmer in the powder – not too overbearing.

    (Also, awesome earrings and PERFECT eyebrows.)

    I love the smoky eyes, and the combination with these earings, is just perfect. It reminds me of a noir movie :)

    Can’t wait to see your coverage of Sidney Fashion week!!

    That is a gorgeous eyeshadow combination. I would never have thought of the gold glitter over the top. Looks stunning.
