Black and Gold Disco Eye Makeup Look

Christmas eyes 13

Heavy eye looks are my favourite go to’s when it comes to the colder, darker winter months. As the turbulent weather becomes shadowy and more dramatic, so does my makeup! I’ve recently been enjoying revisiting some of my old favourite Peaches and Cream pigments and Lit glitters, some of which I used in this look, along with an old favourite MAC lipstick I got when I swapped six empties with the Back to MAC programme. (If you don’t know about this, you can return any six empty MAC product containers to the store and swap them for a brand new lipstick – read about it here!)

I’ve been feeling the festive spirit much earlier, what with finishing my christmas shopping and making plans with my cousin to visit the Christmas market in Leeds, I decided upon a black and gold disco eye makeup look to match my mood! The full list of products and tools used are below.
