MAC Eye Shadows: Contrast|Woodwinked|Nocturnelle
Collection 2000 Glam Rocks in (black and gold!?)
In retrospect I’m not sure that I actually like this look, in theory it should work but I’m not sure that it does. I love navy and gold together but I think that Woodwinked was the wrong gold for the job in this case, I think that it’s a little bit too orange toned, something cooler might have worked better. Que sera sera. I added the glitter liner for a bit of pizazz!
What do you think?

  2. I really like it the way that it is. I'm sure it would look great with a cooler metallic too(would give it a more frosted look)but I think these colours go together nicely.

  4. I love this Amy :) really suits you! With your hair being so gorgeous and bright something a little smoky works so well on you - and then the touch of gold adds the special factor!

    Please come and do my makeup ha-ha!
