Gold and Olive Inspired FOTN

1/22/11

So while browsing through a two month old issue of InStyle I saw this add for this charm bracelet featuring yellow gold and olive and rose gold. I couldn't stop staring at it the colours were absolutely G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S!! I knew I had to cut it out and use it as inspiration for a look-so I did :) 
For this look I used an yellow gold eyeshadow (with a bit of an rusted tint to it when it's on my eyelid) and an olive with a gold shimmer. I love these colours; not only are they super in for Fall/Winter but they are vibrant enough that I love to use them in the summer! Especially the rusted gold-it just brings out the eyes so well.





What I used:

Face
Revlon Photoready Golden Beige 008
MAC Studio Fix NC 25
Chanel Joues Contraste Reflex 82 (Cheeks)
MAC Bronzer in Matte Bronze (Contour)
Eyes
MAC "Ricepaper" (highlight)
MAC "Amber Lights" (all over lid)
L'Oreal "325 Golden Olive" (crease)
MAC "Carbon" (outer V)
Oriflame stylo eyeliner in Black
Covergirl LashBlast Mascara in Black
Lips
MAC "Half n' Half" lipstick
MAC "Instant Gold" lustreglass

It's a more natural and lighter FOTN. Although if you wanted to make it more smokey and sultry all I'd recommend is using L'Oreal Golden Olive all over the lid and MAC Carbon for the outer crease and just some black eyeliner and black mascara. It's definitely a easy "Day into Night" look :) L'Oreal's Golden Olive is a really lovely colour: its pigmented enough that you can get a good swipe on the first try but you can also build it up for a darker version!

What are your favourite olive eyeshadows?? I also really love MAC's Sumptuous Olive!

  1. This is such a beautiful look!! I love how soft and warm the colors are!

    My favorite olive shadow is Khaki Vert, from Chanel's Fall 2010 collection. Its a deeper and slightly more gray version of sumptuous olive, which is also very pretty!
