Festive Red & Gold

Hi everyone,
I decided to do a test run of the make up look that I want to do on Christmas day. I love playing around with make up and will use any excuse to go all out with it. I definitely wanted to go for the classic red and gold and I used several different eyeshadows to achieve the perfect gold. Not too bright but not too muted. I went for a mix of lipsticks again, as NARS Heatwave seemed a bit too bright on its own. I really like how it turned out, especially the winged liner. I blended out the bottom liner to create a sort of shadow of a wing underneath the liquid liner wing, which I think looks quite nice. Hopefully I will be able to recreate this look perfectly on the day!
