Soft Gold/pink smokey eye

So lately I’ve started a new game with my boyfriend. In the interests of playing with more of my collection, not just my same favorite colors and looks, I make him name a random color or colors, and qualify it, IE bright blue purple, or  red and gold.   Todays was red and gold.  As I don’t own any outright red eyeshadows, I chose to interpret that as  “dramatic lips and a warmer smokey eye”.

This one actually was very pretty in person, though considerably warmer than my usual.  I think I wasn’t thrilled with the lips, and tried a few different lipsticks.  I just need a brighter blue-red than I currently own.  You’ll notice that for the eyes, I used creme eyeshadow, as a base for the shadows to stick to. It contoured nicely, so the powdered shadows were more for texture/color, then intensity.
