Poison gold for Easter
I had to work all easter so I didn’t get to do a lot but I had a late shift too and that morning we had a nice over the top breakfast and after that I got to spend some time with my make-up buddies.
I wanted to do something colourful and dramatic and I personally feel I’ve succeeded. I also did my hair a little different than usual and I liked it a lot. I got a lot of sweet comments on it so I guess I wasn’t the only one.
I was thinking about a purple with green look when I was browsing through my pigment samples but then I ran into my MAC Copper Beam pigment and I thought a gold/copper look with purple would be better because I’ve done green with purple for a million time already. That’s not going to stop me from doing looks with those colours in the future but a little variation is a good thing, right?
I also left out the eyeliner again because the look was pretty heavy as it was and I really wanted to show the colours without the eyeliner getting in the way.
The lips are also pretty light but that was just laziness, I had this lipgloss on my table and I had to get up for another one.
I think the light purple on the lower lashline (Sugarpill Weekender) works really well to keep the look from becoming too dark and smokey. And it’s just a stunning colour in combination with the gold and copper pigments.
I have to say I’m really happy with this look and it makes me want to come up with more colour combinations that I wouldn’t normally use. I’m guessing I just have to keep browsing my stash because that usually gets the inspiration flowing. I’ll do a bright yellow with pink look soon because it was requested but if you have any other combinations you’d like to see, please let me know in the comments!
