Eyes: fabulous gold eyeshadow

I have brown eyes and I have learned what colors suit me and what colors make me look like I had a fight with a makeup artist.

Gold looks good on brown eyes because it is part of that color palette (what the heck, gold look good on everything!). I like to wear a smoky eye and then fill it with gold on the inside crease. Sometimes I wear black liner on the top lid and a small golden line under the eye. Looks pretty good if you ask me.

On the bottom I have posted three makeup tutorials I found on Youtube. Enjoy!

Feeling a little creative

Since I came back from my vacation, I am feeling artsy. Yes, that happens to me sometimes. As I got home, I cleaned, organized everything inside and did a lot of laundry. Then I looked around and got into that let’s-give-a-little-makeover-to-the-house mood. So I gathered five DIY tutorials that I will try soon.

-The first one I am going to try is this tutorial from Harpers Happenings. I have a frame that I bought two years ago and it has been moved from place to place with no specific purpose. This is a lovely idea.

-I will spray paint an old rock I have in the balcony and I am going to use it as a book holder like Bri from «Design Love Fest» did in her office makeover.

-There is something about gold spray paint that makes any object feel pretty. It’s shiny and glamorous. Hey! That is why I used it in my blog’s name. Smart girl right? 🙂 I used it in this tutorial too. The picture above is from the Style Me Pretty blog.

Let us shine: statement necklace inspiration

I’ve realized that I have a tons of extremely big necklaces. They are a wonderful piece that can change a simple outfit to a fabulous one. If you are going to wear a big necklace be sure you keep your earrings to a minimum, you don’t want to look like a Christmas tree.
