Rich Amber (Golden Buttercup Hot Pot)
I’m determined to run through all those Hot Pots I got, and I hope it’s helping some of you decide what colors to buy in your next Coastal Scents purchase!
Today I’m featuring a particularly lovely yellow-gold called Golden Buttercup. Yellow is hard to wear, but a golden amber can look dramatic and nicely-warm on most skin tones if you make sure to add enough definition using a dark brown.
This look is especially nice on tan-to-deep skin tones.
You will just need 3 shades which should be easy to find in most drugstore palettes:
- A dark matte brown (I used Revlon Soft Sable Matte Shadow - if you can’t find a matte, a shimmer is fine although matte is better for contrast)
- A metallic bronze (I used Coastal Scents Pure Bronze Hot Pot)
- A yellow gold (I used Coastal Scents Golden Buttercup Hot Pot)—
Step 1: Using a flat or pointed brush, apply dark brown shadow from the outer corners inwards in three lines; along the upper lash line, along the socket, and along the lower lash line. Make sure the socket line is very soft and smoky, and the upper lash line very dark and intense.
Step 2: Pack a golden yellow metallic shadow to the lid from the inner corners outward until you reach and blend very slightly into the dark brown. Then run the remainder on the brush along the inner corners of the lower lash line as well.
Step 3: Apply a rich bronze shade just outside the center of the eye, so there is a nice transition between the gold and the brown.
Run along the center of the lower lash line as well.
Step 4: Using a brown pencil, run along the upper lash line and lower lash line, avoiding the inner corners, so you don’t muddy the gold there. Then finish with plenty of black mascara.
Olivia Wilde Sultry Summer Makeup
Olivia Wilde has the most gorgeous cat-like eyes paired with unbelievable bone structure, giving her that slightly exotic look.
Here, she shows it’s perfectly fine to wear a smoky eye in the day time as long as you keep it soft with a medium color and pearlescent finish. The overall effect is oh-so-sultry without being too heavy if you only use a deeper shade on the outer corners and along the socket line and lash line.
You can also do what Olivia’s makeup artist did and add a touch of pale highlight at the inner corners to lighten and brighten the whole effect.
The skin should be kept quite light and natural aside from blush (no heavy powder!) and a barely there shade on the lips.
It might be just me, but I think this would look equally wicked at an outdoor party as with a tight, sleek chignon and a suit for an important meeting.
