Golden Arabian Sea

I was going out to the Illamasqua Beauty School Drop-in class and had to represent with some brights, so I created this colourful dramatic double stacked eyeliner look.

I was craving a minty colour combined with gold and a dark purple lipstick. I've been hanging out to use Coloured Raine Arabian Nights, thus that was my lip choice. I also reached for Sugarpill Mochi and Goldilux and pretty much just blended those two delicious colours across the lid and blended the crease out with a bit of the blue toned Revlon CustomEyes palette and then highlighted the brow with the lovely #35 AMC shine light gold shadow from Inglot. 

I created the eyeliner with two Urban Decay 24/7 Liquid liners. I stacked Perversion along the lashline and ran Eldorado above it. These eyeliners are so pigmented that they can be opaque over shadows in one swipe and they can also be used to even up each other's edge if you don't get your line even on the first go like me. 

I also had a really fun day chilling with MissMinxette, another Australian blogger, who's got spectacular style and is an even more fabulous dancer! Check out her YouTube channel for great makeup tips and some previews of her awesome dancing!

If you like the stunning sea foam minty green and brilliant metallic gold pigment I used in this look check out Sugarpill here, along with many other gorgeous bright shadows!
