FOTD: Gold and Purple

I found these photos in one of my folders and thought I’d make use of them. I used my Urban Decay 15 anniversary palette to create this look. A very simple one actually, just light gold on my lids, dark purple on the outer corner of my eyes, and the metallic purple on my lower lash lines. I used NARS Orgasm as blush (again!) and on my lips, I seriously can’t remember what I used. Might be Dior Charnelle πŸ˜›




I used all products in the picture above except for the Clinique Chubby Stick. And here is the final look:

I believe I tight lined my upper lashes using the grey liner and lined my bottom lash line with the taupe before using the metallic purple to go over it. For my brows, I filled it in using an old Benefit eye shadow in Bossy. Hope you liked today’s look! Planned to do a review, but too lazy to edit photos and write too many words. You’re stuck with my face for today πŸ™‚

  • LOL I love being stuck with your pretty face haha! Love the colour on the bottom lash line! I’m a huge fan of it as you know! πŸ˜‰

    • Lily

      I know! I saw these photos and immediately thought of you πŸ™‚

    Very pretty! I like lining my lower lash line with bright colours too. Sometimes a colour may not work well on the lids but can look pretty on the lash line instead.

    • Lily

      I’m glad you like it Lyn. It’s definitely one of the easier ways to wear colour on the eyes πŸ™‚

  • I love the photo where you can see your purple top, it looks like your eyeliner is in a teasing mode πŸ™‚ So pretty how you pull off the purple eyeliner. xoxo

    • Lily

      Thank you for the compliment!

  • Oh this is a GORGEOUS look, Lily!!! I especially love the dash of color on your lower lash line πŸ™‚

    • Lily

      Thanks Sunny. Something bright on the lower lash line is fun!

  • Liz

    Oooh, love the lower line action. Imma gonna copy you. πŸ™‚ (And every time I see the neat rows of those depotted shadows, it makes me really happy for some reason!)

    • Lily

      Will you do the look and post it on your blog? And yes this palette needs to be depotted. So much better!

  • Loooovely!! Great placement idea for all the purple + gold palettes out there!

    • Lily

      Thank you Noodles πŸ™‚ You can skip the lower lash line action and just have gold on the lids with purple on the outer corner as well!

  • But we LOVE your face πŸ™‚

    I can never make shadows look good on the lower lashline. It doesn’t seem to melt into the shape enough and it looks weird on my eye shape, LOL. I give up.

    • Lily

      No way Larie! I wish I had your huge almond shaped eyes. So sexy πŸ™‚

  • This is a gorgeous neutral look with a pop of color. Interesting you put a taupe shade before you lined them! Must try this! ;D

    • Lily

      There is no particular reason for using taupe before lining though. Just want to use the products above. Lol!

  • Jaa

    Always happy to see this type of post! Photos speak louder than words. ;D Gotta try this for a simple everyday going-to-work kind of look!

    • Lily

      And I always love seeing the looks you create too!

  • That metallic purple is such a pretty pop of colour!

    • Lily

      Thank you Jenn πŸ™‚
