Growing up, I used to wear a lot of blue, grey and silver eye make up, to go with my almost-black hair and my amazing taste in rock bands. When I coloured my hair back to a more natural hue (read: strawberry blonde!) I started using more gold and bronzes, which seriously made me realise how much my blue eyes pop some days. Since then, I only seem to wear colder tones when I'm going for a night out and want a vampier look.
This eye makeup trend has waterfalled into my other make up, and although I've still never used a bronzer, I have a lot more gold in my look than ever before.
This Rimmel Lasting Finish Wear Max polish in 378 Posh Trash is the perfect pink-gold, and it really does have staying power. I painted my toe nails with this almost two weeks ago, and they still haven't chipped. I love this shade so much that when I went into my nail polish collection to find it, I found two. Woops.
I bought the Urban Decay Naked palette on the plane back from Ibiza last May to benefit from the duty free prices. I can honestly say that I have used this palette at least 3 times a week since I bought it. The matte nude shade (Naked) is perfect for work, whereas the glittery gold (Half Baked) is perfect for adding some sparkle to my eyes.
Maybelline Colour Tattoo eyeshadow pots enough. This is 'On and On Bronze' and really does stay on all day. It's light to apply, doesn't stick into creases and doesn't fade or rub off. I treated myself to 'Pink Gold' as well last weekend, and am completely in love with it.
