Going for Gold

I normally stick to neutrals when it comes to eyeshadows, but for some reason I was strangely attracted to MAC's Golden Lemon pigment while picking up some eye cream at Nordstrom's the other day. I'm still not quite sure what the correct way to apply it is, but I had fun playing with it! What I did was dab a little MAC shadow paint on my eyelid and then I packed on the pigmented powder and blended gently with an eyeshadow brush. My best friend helped me with the fake eyelashes, thank you babygirl.

It looks gorgeous! I've never been drawn to golden tones, either, but somehow there's now a golden bracelet and golden nail polish on my shelf now (both gifts, of sorts) and this post encourages me to finally wear them. Thanks for that!

Golden Lemon is such a gorgeous shade! Looks amazing on you. Applying it over a paint or cream shadow is a great way to wear it, or you could simply mix it with a bit of water or mixing medium to make the shade more opaque and vibrant! Looks really pretty arranged with all the lovely gold jewelry :)

Hi Karla,
Gold is definitely an in color when it comes to eye shadows and jewelry as of late. I'm definitely a fan of Mac Eyeshadows and Pigments. I usually just pack on the color or use fix plus to make it set. Fix plus usually makes the color more vibrant. Have fun playing with your gold eye shadow. Take care.

XOXO,
Elle
