Hey guys! I got a few requests to do a makeup tutorial and to use my NYX products from the Haul I just picked up. Today I’ll be doing a spring colored smokey sparkly gold eyeshadow look! It’s super girly and springy and you’ll look like a super beautiful spring goddess nymph when you’re done! *goals*
So let’s get started! Here, I start of with a light foundation and my eyebrows already done.
These are the products I will be using today:
In the Stila palette on the left, I use the top right brown color called Sandstone. In the Revlon palette in the middle, I use the bottom reddish color. The eyeliner is called NYX Golden Bronze Extreme Shine Eyeliner. The NYX Lingerie Liquid Lipstick is in the color Bedtime Flirt. The lipliner is by Revlon in the color Raisin (my favorite!). And the two shadows on the far right are the NYX Liquid Gold Prismatic Shadow and the NYX Dance the Tides Nude Matte Eyeshadow.
First, I take the NYX Dance the Tides Nude Matte Eyeshadow and using a fluffy brush I blend it into the crease of my eye, bringing it almost all the way to the bridge of my nose.
Next, I take the color from the Revlon eyeshadow palette and blend it with the same fluffy brush right on top of that NYX Nude crease color. Using a regular eyeshadow brush, I took the Sandstone color in the Stila palette and blended it under the outer half of my lower lash line and up onto the outer corner of my eyelid/crease to give it some depth.
Next, I take the NYX Liquid Gold Prismatic Eyeshadow and pat it right onto my eyelid as well as a little bit on the bottom of my tear ducts to brighten up my eyes. You can either use your finger for this step, or use a regular eyeshadow brush. Then, I took the NYX Golden Bronze Extreme Shine Eyeliner and drew it onto my lower waterline.
Next, I put my false eyelashes on as well as some blush onto my cheeks. (My lashes are a bit uneven, I know. I didn’t realize it until after I took the pictures lol)
Finally, I use my Revlon lipliner in Raisin to line my lips, and placed the NYX Lingerie Liquid Lipstick in the center of my lips and blended them together to create an ombre effect. You can use your finger or a makeup brush to blend them together. For those readers with smaller lips, this helps them look larger!
I forgot to include my highlight in the description, but I like to place my highlight on the high points of my face. Such as the top of my cheek bones, the bridge of my nose, on my brow bone, and a tiny bit on my cupids bow. The highlight I used is really just a random Revlon cream highlight that is so old they probably don’t even make it anymore. Although, I just ordered a new one from Amazon so I will review that once it arrives!
Thanks for reading and let me know what you guys think of this look!
