What I used: 1) Urban Decay Primer Potion, 2) Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream in #11, 3) Urban Decay Black Palette (I used Cobra, the black shadow with gold flecks, and the Zero pencil), 4) Urban Decay Naked2 Palette (I used Bootycall to highlight), 5) Almay One Coat Mascara, 6) MAC Pro Longwear Lipcreme in Love Forever!
(If you need alternative product suggestions, ask me on twitter!)

I bought this gold Aqua Cream months ago, but I only rediscovered it the other day. It somehow got lost in the sea of makeup that consumes my life (I really should find a better way to organize); I end up going back to the same products over and over because I forget about everything else I have. After using this aqua cream again, I doubt I’ll forget it again. Whether alone or paired with gold-flecked dark shadow for a metallic smokey eye, this intense, beautiful gold is perfect for a statement eye.

Kim from Eat.Sleep.Wear. was in town to help me with the blogger garage sale for Women In Need (more on that, later!), so I asked her to be my lovely model for this look.  Thank you, Kim!
