One thing you’ll learn about me is that I’m a damn proud Leo… whether or not I believe astrological readings are entirely accurate are another story though. But this look was inspired by my star-sign nonetheless!

I never felt particularly impressed by any art or makeup done in honor of Leo season because I always felt much of the potential for creativity was lost in people taking it too literally. So, I had some fun doing my own thing to represent my inner-lioness without actually painting a lion on my face…

To pay homage to the beast in the stars this look is a messy and wild piece made up of golden and fiery hues. What’s your star sign and what star sign do you actually relate to???


Eyes: Kat Von D Monarch Palette (discontinued) |Colourpop Cosmetics super shock shadow in Fluffy | NYX Cosmetics tinted brow mascara in Black

Lips: Sephora luster matte lip color in Russet Luster

Face: BeBella Cosmetics Fairy Dust Palette | Makeup Revolution vivid baked highlighter in Golden Lights| Wet n Wild Cosmetics contouring palette in Caramel Toffee | e.l.f. cosmetics HD lifting concealer in Fair

I used a matte dark brown to bring depth to the crease with a big, fluffy blending brush and then I went into the crease with a shimmering taupe-brown and applied it with a slim blending brush. Next, I spread Colourpop’s super shock shadow in Fluffy, which is a light, glittering gold with flecks of pink, all over my lid with my finger. The last two steps were to blend out a deep shimmery orange over my lower lid and add a true-gold to my inner corner.

If my face looks kinda orange it’s because I contoured the center of it with the same orange I used on my eyes! And the other interesting detail I added was to pat Colourpop’s super shock shadow in Fluffy on over my eyebrows.

The lips were my favorite part of the look and really brought everything together, I think. I used a rusty orange liquid lipstick and gave my lips extra dimension by dusting a true-gold shimmer eyeshadow over them and dragging it up onto my cupid’s bow. I also gave them a smudged appearance by brushing orange eyeshadow around the rim of my lips.

The glow is once again thanks to my BeBella Cosmetics Fairy Dust Palette.
