Golden Sunrise Eyes! A Makeup Tutorial!

By Dana Fox

Hi friends!  I decided that with Christmas and the New Year coming up, it was necessary to put together yet another makeup tutorial!  This one is very holiday inspired, with golden tones and burgundy, but can also be used throughout the year… Summer sunrise anyone?! Grab your shimmery eyeshadows and shine like that little bombshell you are this holiday season!

Here’s the look:

Of course you don’t have to use the same products as me, but here’s what I used for reference…

Products used:
Yellow = Mac in Gorgeous Gold (Similar: Urban Decay in Eldorado)
Golden Brown = Mac in Woodwinked (Similar: Urban Decay in Maui Wowie)
Burgundy = Rock & Republic in Wicked (Similar: Stila matte eyeshadow in Pigalle)
White = Everyday Minerals in Bundled Up (similar here)
Eyeliner = Mac Kohl eyeliner (cheaper and just as good here)
Mascara = Rimmel Glam Eyes (extra black)

Here’s how it’s done!
