Color Focus Series: Gold and Champagne

I was inspired by EasyAccessBeauty to do a color focus series where I pick a color to focus on and show you and talk about the ones that I have. I found it a lot easier to put it in a video because with out it, this blog would have a photo overload. This is my first video and I do get nervous when it comes to being on camera so please don't mind the bad quality of the video or the fact that I don't do so well on it.

On both eyes i used my Urban Decay Primer Potion, my new Coastal Scents Warm 88 Palette, different shades of Physicians Formula gel liners, L'oreal Voluminous Curved Brush mascara and Ardell Fashion Lashes #109.
I was really bored and had A LOT of fun going through my palette and figuring out corresponding colors. This is how I spent my Sunday night
