MAC’s Old Gold Pigment is one of my favourite eye products. This pigment has an interesting mix of gold, orange and green and looks different depending on the angle it is viewed. I used a turquoise coloured paint pot underneath the pigment and applied blue eyeliner to provide an interesting contrast to the gold tones.

Lid: MAC Old Gold Pigment (shimmery orangey-gold)
Crease: MAC Cork eyeshadow (medium matte neutral brown)
Overlay Crease: MAC Texture eyeshadow (medium matte orange-brown)
Highlight: MAC Shroom eyeshadow (light shimmery beige)
Upper Lashline: Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner in Deviant (bright royal blue)
1. Apply Rollikin Paint Pot all over the lid as a base.
2. Pat Old Gold onto the lid, using a flat shader brush (e.g. MAC 239).
3. Apply Cork in the crease of the eye with a crease/blender brush using a windshield wiper motion (e.g. MAC 217).
4. Overlay Cork by applying Texture in the crease of the eye with a crease/blender brush (e.g. 217).
5. Using a crease/blender brush (e.g. MAC 217) or a pointed crease brush (e.g. MAC 226), sweep Shrrom on to the browbone to highlight. Take this down into the inner corner as well to brighten the eye.
6. Sweep a line of Deviant eyeliner along the top lashline.
7. Apply mascara to the top and bottom lashes.
