Anja Rubik smothered in gold (Japan Vogue May 2009)

I’m attracted to all things gold. I can’t help it. I’ve been collecting gold eye shadows for years and now that I’ve gotten my hands on the Gold Shu Uemura Eyelashes, I need some serious gold to match them. These are some of my favs that I tested so far:

Cargo Mojave

I’ve been using this one for years. Amazing Cargo.


MAC Goldmine
I usually wear MAC’s Goldmine to glam it up during Christmas season. All-time fav.

Chanel Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Gold
Tried it. Loved it. Very very bright yellow gold.

Stila Eye Shadow Trio
Great smart packaging. Love three times.

Shu Uemura Me Gold 331

Shu Uemura Me Gold 340

Shu Uemura Me Gold 350

Shu Uemura Ir Gold 350
I love that Shu made not one but three different golds. I want to get all of them and blend them.

Oscar de la Renta Ready-to-Wear Spring 2008
(Love this look. Last year but whatev)

Gold can be both day and evening, summer and winter. It goes with every skin colour. Wear with black eyeliner and mascara but don’t overdo on the make-up! Keep the rest of the face simple: minimal blush and natural lip.
