Dirty Sexy Golds

I love gold eye shadow. Not fond of gold jewelry, per se, but gold eye shadow is fantabulous. Today I used three of my favorite gold eye shadows. BftE Salted Caramel (I believe this will be for sale on the BftE site on Friday) on the lid and lower lash line. I used Fyrinnae Shenanigans in the crease, outer v and outer lower lash line. I used Fyrinnae Book of the Dead at the inner upper crease. I used TheBalm No Money, No Honey as the highlight shade.

My 5 all time favorite gold shades are: Meow Santa Honey, BftE Salted Caramel, Fyrinnae Book of the Dead, Fyrinnae Shenanigans and Urban Decay Midnight Cowgirl. They’re all different gold shades, but each awesome in their own way. I feel like they do an excellent job of enhancing my eye color, rather than competing with it. That’s probably why I adore them.

I broke out my Meow Pampered Puss foundation in Inquisitive Siamese for today’s look. I did mix in a little bit of Joppa Minerals Morning Dew foundation in Citrine to add a slightly golden glow to my skin. TheBalm’s Hot Mama blush worked pretty well with this look. I recently picked up Revlon’s Tutti Frutti, which is an orange-leaning coral. I like the color a lot. If you’re afraid of orange, this is the shade to use to break you in to wearing oranges.
