Golden Glow

I wanted to do a "wearable" look today that most people could pull off (at least as a party look if you think it's too harsh for everyday). The reason for this is mainly that I needed a picture to use when applying for a job and I needed it to be "neutral" and not too eccentric. I still wanted to feel like me though so a little darkness must be allowed. :P

Hope you like the look! :)

As a base I applied the gel liner Rave by Makeup Geek. It is the perfect "mushroom" base; shimmery metallic taupe that works great for brownish grey smokey eyes like this. :) It is very pretty on it's own but to enhance the shimmer a bit I applied the eyeshadow Moondust (also by Makeup Geek) on the lid.

Okay, don't freak out now, the piercings will be back! ;) As I said, I had to take a photo for job application purposes and since many working places have a no-piercing policy I figured it would be better if I took them out for this photo. 

Glossy, raspberry red lips finishes off this look. To achieve this lip look, first fill in your lips with a bright red lip-pencil, then apply the liquid lipstick Cherry tart by e.l.f. on top of it. Smells good and looks fantastic! :)

Christmas is drawing closer every day and I am just about to start doing looks suitable for dark December nights. I've got a few ideas already. :)
I am also planning an outfit post some time this week!

Thank you for reading and hope you've had a lovely weekend!
