Aztec Gold

Yeah, I’ve finished moving, but things aren’t back to normal.  I don’t have a dedicated makeup area, since my new  bathroom is about a third the size of the old one, with NO room for makeup.  I haven’t decided what other areas of the house will have the best lighting for me to set up shop.  Ah well.  I haven’t even managed to find even enough lighting to feel comfortable reshaping my brows.

They still look a bit uneven—this is actually my natural growth pattern!  For some reason, one of my brows has thicker hair toward the bottom of the brow, textured upwards, and the other  brow has thicker hair up top.  This is why I usually prefer a VERY heavily filled-in and defined look for them.  I’m practicing other options, though.  I still love Aztec Gold with Goldilux, and I thought it set off the coral lips pretty nicely.

Anyways, bear with me a little longer!  I’ll try to get some reviews finished, and get steadier about posting makeup, when I get my space set up.

      Thanks! I LOVE golds on other people, but haven’t had a lot of interest in putting them on myself. It’s a nice compromise, though, between an occasion appropriate neutral look and my preferred crazy colorful smoky eyes. I’ve been wearing them a lot for professional meetings where I don’t want to be too over the top.

      Thanks! I’m looking forward to things sorting themselves out over here-I’ve missed my makeup time! Barely done any shoots, either, and I’m so tired I’ve been trying to gather the energy to schedule some more!

      I actually have photographed a few looks while testing lighting. It took me several days to find my camera cord, though, even after we got the internet back up! I hate moving….

      I’m not a huge fan of gold, but it’s been growing on me, slowly. Goldilux is IMPECCABLE, and makes Aztec Gold perfectly wearable! (the green sheen isn’t visible in the pictures)
