EOTN Rose Gold with Shiro and Fyrinnae

The hubby and I are going out to a nice dinner tonight since today is his Friday. So I decided to do a dramatic look. Who said neutrals had to be boring? Tonight I'm going to full shimmery rose gold. Because 1. it's my favorite metal (see bonus pics of my wedding set below) and 2. because it makes blue eyes P-O-P!

Here's what I used to get this look

White Out, The Truth, Sweet Honey, Epona, and Dwarf in the Flask

Rapunzel had extensions

Estee Lauder Double Wear Mascara in Black
Lancome Eyebrow Pencil in Taupe
Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy

Brushes/Tools (left to right)
Stiff Crease brush (Sonia Kashuk)
Tapered Blennding brush (Lancome)
Angled eyeliner brush (Lancome)
Fluffy Eyeshadow brush (CoverGirl)
Stiff Eyeshadow brush (Eco Tools)
Flat top eyeliner brush (Eco Tools)

You can do your makeup either before or after. I did mine before. If you're careful you won't really have fallout since these are shimmery colors without any glitter.

Step One - Prime Yo Lid

Use your eyeshadow primer and apply it with your fingertip along the entire lid all the way up to the brow bone. Make sure you get the inner corner and tear duct too. 

Once that's set up apply a tiny bit of pixie epoxy (I dab it on my pinky first and apply with my finger) along just the eyelid from inner to outer corner, but don't go above the crease.

Step Two - Highlight the Inner Corner

Use your stiff eyeshadow brush to pick up some of White Out and pat it onto the inner corner and along the lid halfway across. Stop in the middle. Make sure you've got the tear duct highlighted.

Step Three - Time for Rose Gold!

Using the same brush pat Rapunzel Had Extensions across the rest of the lid, just up to the crease. Make sure that you blend it into the White Out that we highlighted with.

Step Four - The Crease

Take the tapered blending brush and pick up sweet honey, blending it in the outer corner, into the crease, and up into rest of the lid. You're going for subtle, here. Blend, blend, blend.

Step Five - The Crease Pt. 2

Take the small, stiff crease brush and pick up Epona. Focus it in the outer corner and just into the crease. Blend out a bit, but keep it heavier in just the crease and outer corner. 

I forgot to take a photo of the next step but I took the angled brush and lined my bottom lash line  in Rapunzel Had Extensions (all along the lash line)and Epona (outer portion).

Step Six - Line those Lashes!

Use whatever lining method you prefer. I like to use the flat top eyeliner brush and Dwarf in the Flask to tight line. Since I'm going for a bold night-time look I lined my lower waterline. If you want to use pencil/gel/liquid that's fine! Do your thing, girl. Wing it out if you're feeling sassy.

Step Seven - Highlighting

Take your fluffy eyeshadow brush and highlight the brow bone and inner corner with The Truth. Blend so it's soft and subtle. Now apply your mascara and fill in your eyebrow. If you want extra drama you can add false lashes at this point.

And we're done! Here's how it turned out. Sorry for the crappy lighting but it's late afternoon here so the sun is pretty much gone.

Look at that gorgeous rose gold setting!

Here is the condensed version for anyone who wants to save this look to reference later.

  1. Your ring is beautiful! I love rose gold as well :) I like you eye look as well. Fyrinnae's RHE looks like a pale gold on my medium dark skin, so I have to use a white base to make it show up properly!

  2. I love skin care too & i really like your web log & posts like this that includes all the aid product you've got used however i'd like to understand if any of the product in your pics haven't lived up to expectations or simply not worked for you? you've got introduced ME to some nice product.

    1. I really like all of the products that I used. The only thing I don't like is that if you get the Estee Lauder mascara in your eye (from being clumsy) it burns and stings, and the Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy really only works with shimmery colors. If you use it with mattes it does not work as well. I have never had a Shiro or Fyrinnae eyeshadow that I didn't like. Let me know if you have any questions about a specific product.
