Shimmery Gold

Hey my lovely readers! The weather has been so lovely the last few days, unfortunately I can't enjoy it, because I've been quite restricted these last few days. I had to have a laparoscopy on Thursday, and then I caught a bad cold on Friday. So I've been getting better (I can sit down without help now!) and I decided to do a nice, golden make-up look to cheer myself up a bit. I also wanted to use some of the birthday presents I got from my sister, I get so excited about using new things!

Benefit Brows a-go-go Brow And Eye Shaping Kit 
 I used my ELF Small Angled Brush to apply the wax and a tiny bit of the light brown eyeshadow to my eyebrows, because I didn't felt like putting too much on them. I'm still a bit ill, so I felt I'd be slightly uncomfortable putting too much on.

Gold Cream Eyeshader from Hema
I got this from my sister, along with a silver one, and they are so nice! I used this as a base, and put it all over my lid. It goes on so well!

ELF Palette
I've been using my ELF palette a lot recently, the colours are so nice and pigmented. I used my ELF blending brush to apply the medium-dark gold colour all over my lid and then I blended out the crease a little.
Bobbi Brown Creamy Eye Pencil in Walnut & Maybelline The Colossal Volum' Express Mascara
I absolutely adore my Bobbi Brown eyeliner, and now it's getting warmer, I find I've been chosing brown over black when it comes to lining my eyes. It's a lot less harsh, and slightly more natural. I lined my top lashline very finely, so that's it's barely noticeable. I then made the bottom lashline a little more brown by pressing a bit harder. Then I used a coat of my Maybelline Mascara, for more natural, daytime lashes.
MeMeMe Blush Me Blush Box in Rouge
And finally, I used my lovely MeMeMe blush in Rouge on the apples of my cheeks. To apply it, I used my new angled blush brush which I got from my sister. It's from Hema, which is this great shop that sells a lot of different things, from clothes to make-up to cooking utensils. It's also quite cheap, yet great quality, which is great because most of the shops here aren't.
