halloween tutorial: gold finger

If you know me, you probably know that my favorite color is gold so when I decided to do this feature, I knew I had to do a crazy gold look. Every time I think of my obsession with gold, the song goldfinger from james bond always comes into my head. Although this look doesn’t look exactly like the woman in goldfinger, it was certainly inspired by her.

products used:

nivea mens shave balm

milani conceal and perfect foundation – 02 natural

cover fx custom cover drops – moonlight

maybelline age rewind concealer – neutralizer

pat mcgrath highlighting stick – golden

pat mcgrath highlighting powder – golden

anastasia beverly hills glow kit – that glow

ofra liquid lipstick – fifth ave

jeffree star beauty killer palette

mac gigiblack mascara – black

lena lashes – bianca

duo clear lash glue

duo brush on lash glue

hobby lobby glitter & sequence

step 1: prime –  I applied nivea mens shave balm to smooth my skin and prolong my foundation wear

step 2: foundation – I mixed my milani foundation with the cover fx moonlight drops to create really glowy full coverage skin.

step 3: concealer – I used maybelline age rewind concealer to cover my dark circles and highlight my chin, cupids bow, bridge of nose, and center of forehead.

step 4: highlight – I applied pat mcgraths golden highlighting stick on the high points of my cheek and then put the powder golden highlight on top of it. Instead of using bronzer, I used ABH golden bronze on my cheeks. I then also fanned sunburst and dripping in gold on my cheekbones, bridge of my nose, cupids bow, and chin for an extra poppin’ highlight.

step 5: glitter explosion – I used a flat paint brush to paint duo clear lash glue onto my right eye area. I used my finger to pack a fine gold glitter on top of the glue before it dried.

step 6: sequence brow – I took each sequence and applied a little duo brush on lash glue on the back and pressed it on my brow until it was completely covered.

step 7: mascara – mac gigiblack mascara is my go to for darkening my lashes before falsies because it still looks natural enough to blend with lashes.

step 8: false lashes – I used lena lashes in bianca for this look. I like the duo brush on lash glue because it is so easy to apply it evenly on the lash band without a mess. I let it dry for  about 30 seconds before actually putting them on my eyes so that they are tacky enough. I press them against my real lashes with tweezers so that you can’t see a distinction line.

step 9: metallic lips – I applied ofra’s fifth ave liquid lipstick as the base for my golden lip. It wasn’t quite as pigmented as I wanted so I used my finger to pat on JS rich bitch on top.

step 10: glitter hairline – For an extra pop of gold I sprinkled a larger glitter all over my hairline.
