OOTD & FOTD- Going Gold for Gatsby featuring Lorraine!

Hey Guys,

Today's post is a bit different that my usual posts! Today I will be talking about a very special make up look I did! 

Meet Lorraine, my brother's girlfriend a.k.a my baby sister ;-)

In December, Lorraine graduated and off she went to the ball!

This year, the graduation ball had a theme which has been big this year (or last year since I'm writing this in 2014 ;-))... The Great Gatsby!

Our lovely Lorraine is not a fan of a lot of make up and my brother doesn't have a huge make up obsession unlike his sister! Therefore, I had to adapt a great make up look were Lorraine would look natural yet glamourous at the same time!!

Lo and behold the sultry gold and brown smoky eye look and a lovely deep red lip which achieved the brother seal of approval (WIN!)

For this look I decided to spice up the eyeliner by placing a black eyeliner in her waterline and using a gold liquid eyeliner on the lid. As you can see Lorraine wears glasses so I had to place the right amount of eyeshadow just a bit above her normal crease line in order to achieve that depth with or without glasses. Keep in mind to always add a white eyeshadow in order to increase the area between the eyelid and the brow especially with larger lens glasses such as Lorraine's. We finished off this look with the signature 1920s lip colour!
