Rose Gold Summer Makeup

Something that has been on my makeup wishlist for quite a few months now is the Mac Rose Gold Pigment- so I thought I'd try my best to concoct a few of my own eyeshadows to create a similar shade. After experimenting for a while, I was pretty happy with the outcome and even managed to get a decent close up of the eyeshadow, which I don't think I've ever succeeded in, so I thought I'd share with you what I used!

I started with my usual base of the Bourjois CC Cream and the Collection 2000 Concealer which you can see in pretty much all of my previous makeup posts, along with a light dusting of the Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in seductive pink which I've been loving recently to give a little colour and shimmer on the cheeks. 
For the eyes, I used quite a large collection of eyeshadows (in comparison to my usual makeup anyway!) starting with the Benefit Cream Eyeshadow in R.S.V.P for a base. I then blended Mac's Gleam into the crease along with the dusky rose shade from a Body Shop palette I have, which I don't think is available to buy anymore, unfortunately. It's very similar to  tease in the Naked Palettes I think; a warm pinky/mauve colour. For the gold tint, I pressed on a little of the L'Oreal Colour Riche Eyeshadow in gold in my inner corner and blended some of Mac's Woodwinked into the crease on top of the pink.

I kept it simple with eyeliner and simply lined the top of my eyes with my usual L'Oreal Superliner and smudged the Rimmel Scandaleyes Kohl Liner in bronze on my lashline, finishing off with a few coats of the Maybelline Lash Sensation Mascara which I have been obsessed with recently! 

I hope you all like the makeup look- it's definitely not something I could be bothered with doing everyday but maybe for a special occasion in the evening or something more fancy. Thanks for reading!
