'Gold Smoke' Eye look...

Hey guys,
As you know, I wasn't very well last week so I haven't done any looks recently, so as soon as I started feeling better I was in my makeup chair!
The lighting wasn't fantastic, still getting yellow shadows, but I felt inspired the other night, and really want to use some products I haven't used for a while and play with the new lashes I made! So here's my look :)
It's a pretty simple look but the gold really does make it look stunning in person! I won't say too much about it, listing the products I used would take forever! They were from loads of different palettes because I was just playing around but this would be an easy to get look from using either the Urban Decay Naked or Naked 2 palettes, or Sleek Storm Palette.
Instead of using a matte white highlighter, like I usually do, I use a cream shadow with gold shimmer which definitely worked better than my usual go to! It actually seemed to make my eyes look bigger by taking the complete look higher, and using a darker shadow nearer my inner corner, and just using the gold on the centre third of my eyelid (and slightly bringing it in with my blending brush) made my eyes look a lot rounder too.
I made my false eyelashes using a pair I got ages ago from ELF which I'd never touched, and using duo glue, I added the gems which were from a nail art kit I picked up in River Island. They were my first attempt at making them so I was pretty happy! Although there's always room for improvement!
So that's my finished look :) I have fallen in love with my mascara from Benefit (They're Real) which I did at first hate! But wearing it over Mac's Black Lash makes my lashes so much thicker and longer! I love it!
I might start doing some tutorials of some of my looks, if you think it's a good idea then please leave me a comment and let me know!
Hope you've all had a nice weekend!
