It’s been a while since we talked beauty on the blog.
Anyhoo, gold seems to be the colour of next season. It’s been slowly making it’s off the catwalk and into my make-up bag. First onto my nails and sneakily via my eyeliner. Indeed a have a very dull gold eyeliner from Stila which I adore.
So how do you translate catwalk style to your daily style or even your bridal style?
I love these relatively subtle looks with a nod to gold. They are beautiful yet with a fashion edge. The gold just enhances the eye and makes it “pop” (for want of a better word!).

I guess glitter could be a little dangerous to those of us who wear contact lenses but I really want to go a little glitter crazy at a Christmas party! Would you?

Or you could go all out and fall in love with gold leaf. Oh the deliciousness. Seriously, I adore these looks. I wish I were brave enough. Particularly the golden eyebrow! Yes this is an incredibly bold look but gold leaf can be used far more subtly, just a few flakes in the corner or edge of your eye. Perfection.

Not gold, but heavenly.
So are you a golden girl?
For more pretty eyes, do check out my pinterest page. I think I will need to bit of culling. Why can people not attribute images correctly?! Also, why doesn’t reversing the image search ever really find the correct source.
