Spring Gold

A part of my daily ritual is listening to music while I do my make-up. I get hooked on a particular song and I do my face accordingly. It can be unfortunate if I become obsessed with David Bowie or Alice Cooper – I leave the house looking very strange indeed. However, at the moment I’m into gentle folk music, The Staves and First Aid Kit have been on repeat. I intended to do a short and sweet video, but because I can’t leave well enough alone, this look became more elaborate. Please excuse my shoddy sound editing, I had to play the song twice in order to fit in this lengthy make-up. Mid-way through this video my cat Cleo upstaged me with shameless glee.

I love to use highlighter on my cheekbones and the high points of my face, and this rose gold eyeshadow by Urban Decay works really well. This is nice for daytime, or even as a bridal or light party look.
