Just lately, my passion for deeply dramatic makeup has sparked up once again. I always feel this way around Valentine’s Day. For me, it’s the perfect time of year to experiment with some sultry, flirty makeup styles, and I find that a golden eye combination never fails. So, I decided to create a glamorous golden cut crease makeup look for Valentine’s day with Model Co’s Eye Lites Metallic Shadow.
I recently got the Model Co Eye Lites Metallic Shadow in my February Lookfantastic Beauty Box and it was the perfect inspiration for this look. The dreamy, creamy consistency is gorgeous to work with and once set, it’s firmly buckled down until you decide to remove it. The colour I got in my box is St Barts – a gorgeous almost champagne gold metallic shade.
To create the eye look below, I first went in with several Make Up Geek and Zoeva shades to create a perfectly dark and transitioned crease. I then cut the crease using my Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer before lightly setting it with a layer of a light golden eyeshadow. Next, I took the Eye Lites metallic shadow and placed it all over the concealed area that I had just painted before adding a layer of a darker gold eyeshadow from Zoeva.
The metallic shadow is gorgeous on it’s own, but I really wanted to amp up the colour so applying another layer of shadow over the top seriously kicked it up into high gear. To finish with, I added another light layer of the Eye Lites metallic shadow and allowed it to dry. I love the end effect – so pigmented and super-foiled!
I also added a thin layer of the shadow across my lips to give them a metallic shine. Although it gave a gorgeous effect for a photograph, it wouldn’t be too practical to wear if you’ll be eating or drinking as it tended to crack a little on the lips after wearing it for a short while. But on the eyes? This baby won’t budge!
I haven’t seen the Model Co Eye Lites Metallic Shadow available to buy online yet, but keep your eyes peeled for it popping up soon because I’m sure it’s going to be a popular one!
