Face of the Day: Year of the Dragon

Last week I reviewed LUSH’s Red Dragon Soap, their celebratory soap for Chinese New Year. Yeah, it’s the year of the dragon.

I was really inspired by the look of the soap. Especially the colors. It was like gold over blood orange. So, I thought I’d do a face of the day to match.

Here’s what the soap looked like:

(This was one of the rare occasions where I straightened my hair.)

fotd01202012-02I used Cupcake Cult Eye Shadow is some mysterious red color at the outside of my lid and a bit into the crease. Then I used MAC Eye Shadow in Orange in the middle third of the lid. Near the inside corner, I used the gold shade from the L’Oreal HiP Metallic Eye Shadow in Gilded.

I used a bit of Urban Decay Eye Shadow in Oil Slick on the lower lid to darken things up a bit.

Finally, shadow-wise, I used the Fyrinnae Loose Eye Shadow in Polar Bear in the inside corner and below my eyebrows as a highlight. And, unfortunately, I knocked the little pot of loose shadow after using it. It fell on the bathroom floor and is gone forever. I’m sad about it.

I finished up the look with Maybelline Define-A-Line Eyeliner and Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara.

What do you think? Did I pull it off?

  3. I did the exact same thing with Polar Bear, but was able to rescue about 1/3 of the jar. But I was sad, let’s mourn Polar Bear together 🙁

    On a happier note, absolutely love this EOTD! So colorful and festive

  4. I love the colours, I will try this out on myself.
