Trial The Trend | Golden Goddess

I was recently asked by Urban Retreat Beautique to create an AW14 Inspired look using gold shades and I was sent a couple of Laura Mercier products to help me with the look. I know AW14 seems quite far away but I thought I’d make this look Summer appropriate by incorporating a pretty pink lip, of course to make it more AW appropriate you could add a bright red or deep berry lip.
I started by using the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Gilded Gold*, I swooped this over the whole eye lid and also on the lower lash line to dramatise the look a little more. I really liked using this stick because it was so easy to use and the cream formula was super smooth too, you can easily add a light wash of colour and blend in or use more product to really intensify it. I then added a neutral brown shadow to the crease and really blended it out for a soft look. I also added some brown shadow to the lower lash line beneath the gold to add some extra smokiness to the look and to define my eyes a little more. Last steps were eye liner, I added a liquid liner to the top lash line and a kohl onto the waterline and also added some mascara to define and separate my lashes this┬áLaura Mercier Long Lash Black Mascara* really works well on my lashes, it’s clump free and smudge free even on those lower lashes! Last but not least I added some falsies to dramatise and complete the look.
Have you started to see many AW14 makeup trends pop up? What’s your favourite so far, I think golds will always be a classic that I will love and adore.
