Bookmark and Share Posted on 12/11/2012

We're gifting you this holiday season with the 'midas touch'! For the woman with a creative flair who loves to create beauty and make a statement then this is a look you're going to love. Incorporate some or all of the steps into your New Years Eve makeup routine for a glowing and gilded look that guarantees wow factor...

For this look, the main focal point is going to be the eyes and there is no better product to put people under your spell then the Ellis Faas Eye Lights in E303. Much more than a highlighter or eyeshadow, it creates the illusion of metallic eyes by appearing moist and wet but is actually perfectly dry. Create even more depth by lining upper and lower lashes with the Kevyn Aucoin Eye Pencil Primatif and finishing off the eyes with the Ellis Faas Mascara. A staff favorite this mascara delivers big and full lashes like you've never seen before. 

 

You can't go gold without complimenting it with a romantic glow and the Halo Gold Leaf Balm by Belmacz offers a subtle gold shine to inner corners of eyes and bridge of nose. Next, apply Butter London's West End Wonderland, in a densely pigmented gold all over the lip area for an instant luxe look and pair it up on the nails with Butter London's Full Monty Nail Lacquer.

 

The last thing we want when doing a strong shimmer makeup look is a shiny complexion so mattify the face with the Ellis Faas Powder to create a flawless and shine free canvas. Add the final note of dramatic flair by spritzing a few sprays of Evening Edged in Gold Eau de Parfum by Ineke. This opulent fragrance creates a sensual warmth with night scented flowers that is idea for any sparkling soirees.

After you've applied your favorite illuminating base like Becca Cosmetics Luminous Skin Color it's time to draw attention to the eyes with the Kevyn Aucoin Eyeshadow Duo in Soft Gold Lame and Smoky Brown. This is the perfect eyeshadow for day or night and because we want the lip to be the focal point we want to keep the eye area soft and shimmery. Next, enhance lashes with the By Terry Mascara Terrybly Growth Booster Mascara in Black. This is a lash growth boosting treatment as well as amazing big lash mascara! 

Sculpt cheekbones and give a subtle hint of color with By Terry's Or de Rose Blush Prestige. This blush literally a-washes the cheeks in a luminous pinky-bronze glow that appears to come from within. Now let's create the wow factor with the Paul & Joe Full Coverage Lipstick Refill #304 (rich red) and matching nails with Deborah Lippmann's My Old Flame nail lacquer. No look is complete without a fragrance and for a classic girl we suggest a classic scent such as Sottile Eau de Parfum by Yosh.
