Lilac with gold eyeliner

On to the second gold-inspired look for the day 🙂

This gold however, is not green, antique or you name it…it is Vintage! Oh yes, Sleek eye dust Vintage. Another gorgeous pigment from Sleek which this time around I used as a liner, wet.

You probably already knew that but pigments (and eyeshadows for that matter) tend to look even more fabulous when applied wet because the vibrancy of the colours stands out better. This technique is called “foiling” and can be achieved by using either a special mixing medium, or, if you don’t happen to have that (like me!), H2O – also known as water :P.

What I do is just wet the bursh a bit (damp, not soaking with water), mix it with a bit of the pigment in the cap, and apply. By the way, I would not do this with e/s…water may damage your eyeshadow! For foiling e/s I’d rather take some product out of the pan before using the wet brush… or just get a mixing medium.

I did a Lilac Gold look, not so dark but still a bit glamorous because of the Vintage eyeliner.




There’s a bit of pink too :)…I could name this look Golden Candy..or something..

Anyhow, I used:

  • Essence I love stage e/s base
  • NYX JEP Milk (thin layer as a base)
  • Barry M dazzle dust Candy
  • Sleek Snapshots palette
  • MUG e/s Chickadee
  • Sleek eye dust Vintage
  • Essence long lasting eye pencil #15 Bling Bling
  • Catrice Glamour Doll volume mascara

I hope you liked today’s makeup looks and I would be happy to receive your comments/suggestions/inquiries/….. on those 🙂

Till next time!
