Looking for gold in a wood of roses

I thought it was about time to start trying the makeup thing again. My eyes have been behaving very well with just eyeshadow (no base, so creasapalooza) and eyeliner and I really wanted to use my new Gosh Rosewood eyeshadow, I got it from Michelle in my Secret Twitter Santa package as one of the products she wasn’t using.
Rosewood is a beautiful brownish red colour and I wanted to combine it with more Gosh Effect Powders so I took Gold Dust and Plummy. It isn’t my favourite look in the world but I like it anyway. Gosh Effect Powders kick butt!

I also used Sugarpill Goldilux, just to make the gold on the moving eyelid a little more intense. Somehow I just can’t make any looks without Sugarpill, lol.

I really like the colour combination but it didn’t turn out the way I had in mind. As usual.
The light is also terrible at this time of year, no freaking sunshine at all!! My annual winterdepression still is nowhere to be seen but that’s probably because other than the eczema stuff life has been pretty good to me. So when the sun starts to shine around here again I hope I can get to work on more looks. I think I still have to take it easy for my skin, though. 🙂

I used a red lipstick because I thought the colours in this look were practically begging for some flaming red lips. The lipstick I used is from Konad and even though their makeup isn’t all great quality, their lipstick really, really is. It just glides over your lips and the colours are insane I only have 3 but if I can ever get more I would. Do you want to see a review of these lipsticks?

And what do you think of this look? Do you like it or would you like to see some other colours next time?
Please, let me know in the comments!
