'Sea of Gold and Envy' Look

'Sea of Gold and Envy' Look

When life gives you lemons make lemonade! Well that's what I tried to do here when the LA Splash Sea of Gold Pigment failed me. Note to self, pigments and loose eyeshadows need a sticky base to adhere to...at least these ones do. I picked up a few LA Splash pigments and they are beautiful in swatches but not so great in practice. I will test them out some more before I give a final verdict.

How have you guys been? How was Valentine's Day? Things have been so hectic that the blog has suffered a tad...please bear with me : )


I started off with NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base all over my lid up to the brow bone. I applied MAC Layin' Low Paintpot (matte beige) all over my lid and on my brow bone as my primary base. Sonia Kashuk Dome Blending Brush

On the inner lid and tearduct area I applied LA Splash Sea of Gold Pigment (shimmery gold). MAC 242 Shader Brush
Next on the middle of the I applied Rock & Republic Envy Eye Color (satin forest green). MAC 239 Eye Shader Brush
For the outer lid and crease I used Rock & Republic Fatalistic Eye Color (matte black). Sigma Medium Angled Shading E70 Brush
On the browbone area and for blending I used MAC Wild By Nature Eyeshadow (matte camel). MAC 252 Large Shader Brush
For highlight I used MAC Ricepaper Eyeshadow (shimmery champagne). MAC Large 252 Shader Brush
For my lower lashline I used the MAC Black Line Pearlglide Intense Eyeliner Pencil (shimmery black w/ green  and gold sparkles).

My brows are filled in with MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Stud and NARS Coconut Grove Eyeshadow (matte blackened brown). Paula Dorf Eye Definer Flat Top Brush

I lined my upper lashline with Stila Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner.
I lined my lower waterline with L'Oreal HIP Cream Eyeliner in Black. Stila #28 Smudge Pot Brush
I used Too Faced Lash Injection Mascara for my lashes and added Beautee Senses Adventurous False Eyelashes for effect.

 Just a glob of gold pigment. Ick! So hard to try a fix!


For my lips I used MAC Underplay Lipstick (creamy nude).

Discontinued CCO find...great nude! And it's an Amplified Creme!


I primed my skin with Tarte ReCreate™ Silicone-Free Primer. I used MAC Pro Longwear Foundation in NC45 - Sigma Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki Brush - for my face and set my t-zone with MAC Blot Powder in Dark. I used MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NC45 - Fingers : ) under my eyes set with Benefit Powderflage - Beauty Blender Sponge.

I used MAC Amazon Princess Blush (satin peach pink) for my cheeks - MAC 129 Powder/Blush Brush, MUFE #2 Sculpting Kit for contour and highlight - Sephora Professional #49 Blush Brush.
