Makeup of the Night: Gold Smokey Eye

Hi guys!
I wanted to do a gold smokey eye for a Christmas party and I thought that I'd do a makeup of the night post on it! It is very similar to other tutorials that I've done, so I won't go into that much detail. So let's get started!

So for my face, I just used a little concealer and filled in my brows. Nothing that fancy. 

I used a wet brush to apply a gold shadow all over the lid (using patting motions!) and I took a pencil brush and built up the outer V with a matte chocolate brown shade. I built it up quite a bit because I wanted it dramatic! I also took a matte medium brown in the crease and a matte cream shade as a highlight. I used a black pencil liner on the upper and lower lashes and finished with 2 coats of mascara. 

I didn't do any lip products because I didn't feel like reapplying after I ate (haha I'm so lazy!) But I think a peach lip would look fab with this!

So that was my quick makeup of the night post! Let me know what you think of it in the comments below and don't forget to follow this blog for more posts!


  1. Beautiful look. I love how its bold enough to notice but subtle enough to ear almost anywhere! :)
