If you want to do a party look but haven't the time to labor over your face half the day then try this neat trick. Gold is a universally flattering colour, so take whatever you have (eyeliner, shadow - heck, really intense bronzer) and draw a neat line beneath your lower lids. I went for a Cleopatra sort of thing, milking the length of gold running across my eye to meet my eyebrow. I wasn't particularly neat about it, either. You don't have to be: the general idea will do. It's the thought (or smudge) that counts here. The overall effect is quite powerful when worn with a paired back, nude look. Well, from far at least.
Until next time. x
