2011 New Year’s Party New-New Part 3: The Eyes and The Lips

This was actually really hard because although I knew exactly what look I wanted to get (gold eyes with red lips) I wasn’t quite sure how to put it together…or if it would even look that great together.  Remember, I am no make up guru.  I just do what I can.

So I took to youtube to see what I could find and after a LONG time searching I finally found the perfect look.  I really like it so I’m gonna use it as my inspiration (minus the false lashes and possibly without the winged out eyeliner).  This is a tutorial I found by BeautySplurge.  Yes we’re different skin tones but I think it’ll work out 🙂

As for the products, I’ll be using the following.


– Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Eden
– NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Gold
– Assorted bronzes, golds, and browns from my Sephora Ultimate Blockbuster Palette
– Wet N’ Wild Mega Eyes Creme Eyeliner in 886 (Black)
– Maybelline Volume Express The Falsies Mascara


So this part I’m actually really excited about.  As many of my faithful readers may know, I recently bought my very first lipstick and I love it.  It’s my go to shade whenever I put make up on for church or whatever.  But for this occasion I wanted to do something a little bit more daring; hence the red lip.  Now this too was a quest, definitely had to get the help of a make up consultant at Nordstrom’s yesterday to kinda find a shade that I felt really went well with my skin tone.  And I really like this one a lot!  Definitely totally different and a little out of my comfort zone but hey it’s gonna be 2011!!! lol  So here’s the lip colour I picked out 🙂

(warm orange-red)

Then I realized….I’d probably need a liner as per all the tutorials I’ve seen on Youtube.  So decided to go cheap and try one out that’s a fave of one of my make up gurus on there, emilynoel83 of BeautyBroadcast.
