Gold and Black Liner!

Tuesday, May 08, 2012

While browsing Pinterest, we found a gorgeous gold and black liner look that caught our eye and immediately re-pinned it to our 'Beauty Inspiration' folder! The look is really simple, but will make eyes really pop. It also kind of reminds me of what the character Cinna in The Hunger Games wears so that was cool too. Heres how:

1. Start by priming the eye with our Eyelid Primer so that the eyeliner lasts all day.

2. Next, cover the lid with a nude eyeshadow or face powder that matches your skin. The look here isn't about the eyeshadow, it's about the liner so we're keeping the eyelid simple.

3. Line eyes with our Liquid Eyeliner in 'Black' and add a wing at the ends if you'd like for a cat-eye effect.

4. Next, using our Mineral Eyeshadow in 'Golden Goddess' and our Eye Primer and Liner Sealer, use the Liner Sealer side to create a paste with the gold eyeshadow. With a steady hand, apply the gold as eyeliner right above (not on top of) the black eyeliner.

5. Messed up? No Worries! Use our Makeup Remover Pen to remove any mistakes.

6. Curl lashes and coat them with two coats of our Mineral Infused Mascara.

7. For extra drama, add some false lashes.

8. Finish off by applying our Shimmer Eyeliner Pencil in 'Blissful Blush' to the lower lash line for extra sparkle.

I have a suggestion on products you guys should begin working on. A foundation palette and while browsing the internet cosmetic sanitizer.I didn't even know that this existed but now that I do I'm so buying it and if you guys made it I would buy it all the time as it is expensive at the Beauty so clean company. Please think about these suggestions because you guys are the best on the high quality for cheap.

This gold + black look could work for a special event to enhance gold theme (i.e. Indian wedding or specific type of costume)...but I don't know about otherwise...just clean & simple black (E.L.F.) liquid liner works for me as an every-day wearable eye look

I'd love to try this look, but I'm not sure I have hands steady enough for two lines of liquid eyeliner! It looks amazing though

I really like this look! But like someone else mentioned, it sounds likeit world be hard to apply well if you don't have a steady hand. I would reserve this for special oh occasions because I think it would require multiple tries and lots of effort to apply two layers of liquid eyeliner.

I really like it! I'm not a fan of dark liner, so I might just do the gold by itself, even though the black really makes it pop.

Love the look. Would REALLY love to just have the liquid liner in gold though and not have to mess with making a paste from eyeshadow...

I don't think I'd have the coordination to make it look that nice, so no I wouldn't do that to my eyes.

Looks gorgeous. Has such an ethereal feel to it! You could easily switch up the glitter color to silver, purple etc to match your outfit!!

How about the first 27 comments, instead of 25? I'd totally wear it. Gold shades seem to go well with my green eyes.

Looks like a cool idea. I think this would look great as a bronzy smokey eye also using dark brown and gold liner:)

I wear a look like this but with silver liner quite a bit. I'll have to try gold, it would look nice in the summer!

I use a look like this quite often. Typically with the "Celebrity" mineral eye shadow (or any other neutral color close to my skin color) then I use a "base" eyeliner - (purple, green, brown, any color will do) and then place a very thin line right on the lash line with a little flick at the end. It goes great with any shade lipstick too. Makes for a "no brainer" routine in the morning when I'm in a hurry.
