Beauty: My golden eye obsession

One of my favourite 'go to' looks at the moment is a gorgeous golden eye. It's such an easy effortless makeup look to create and one that I can do really quickly. Now the weather is finally becoming cooler, and the berry lipstick's are beginning to show their face, I know that I am going to be drawn to this eye look even more. Plus it only uses two eyeshadow shades which can only mean its easy to do right? 

The products that I have used on my face are a mixture of some of my old and new favourites. First I applied the Laura Mercier primer all over my face. I am really loving this product at the moment as it feels really smooth to apply and makes my foundation set really comfortably onto the skin. Next I use my classic Rimmel London Wake me up foundation. I have been using this foundation everyday for the past year or two now and love how it leaves my skin looking. To set my makeup I have used the bloggers classic Stay Matte powder. I particularly use this on the T-zone, as well as on the cheeks and under my eyes. Before doing anything with my eyes I curled my lashes as I hate doing this after applying my eyeshadow! First on the eyes, I used my Seventeen Gold Eye eye eyeshadow*. I still can't get over how amazing this product is to use. I am always a little bit sceptical with cheap eyeshadow products as I am a big fan of the buttery Urban Decay palettes. The pigmentation of the gold is gorgeous and applies really easy. In the crease I used the shade Heartbreaker in the Tartelette palette. Again, the shades in this palette are so easy to blend and are so pigmented. I love how these two shades look together. To finish the eye look I then went back in with my Gold shadow in the middle of the eye and underneath to make them glow a little bit. Finally I applied the Natural Collections waterproof mascara. This mascara is another new favourite of mine. It coats the lashes evenly and holds them in place ALL day long. You can also build up the layers with this mascara without them looking too clumpy which I love. For the brows I applied the Benefit Goof Proof brow pencil. This is such an easy product to apply as it comes out really light allowing you to build up the shape of your brow. Underneath my brows and on my cheekbones I used the Seventeen WOW concealer. This works perfectly as a highlighter and I love the brush applicator as it allows you to be precise! I then applied the Seventeen Instant Glow bronzing powder* in the contour of the cheeks. I have been looking for a bronzing palette to take the place of my Hoola and I think I have found it! They are so similar in colour and apply gorgeously on the cheeks. To finish I used my Charlotte Tilbury Super Cindy Hot Lips lipstick to match the eye look.

I really love creating this look on days when I want to look put together without putting in too much effort! I know that I am going to be recreating this most mornings before Uni!
