Mushu inspired EOTD

Red and gold go together really well, like on a bejeweled crown, a ruby ring... or an animated dragon from a Disney cartoon. I like Mushu (from Mulan), and this look is inspired by him. I might even start a series of Disney sidekick character eye-looks (e.g Lumiere, Zazu, Gus or Flit - just off the top of my head). That sounds like fun, right?

Base: Urban Decay Primer Potion (original, I am yet to crack open Eden), UD 24/7 liner in Baked (under gold to help it stick).
Eyeshadows: Sugarpill Goldilux, Love+, Flamepoint (to blend down red onto lid) and Dollipop (to blend out red to brow) and a touch of Inglot AMC 74 (Raspberry) to darken the crease slightly and matte 352 (skintone) to blend right up to brow.
Eyeliner: Boujois Clubbing Liner Intense in Black.
Mascara: Boujois Volumizer (step 2 then step 1 to comb it through, yeah I like it backwards best...)
Brows: Clinique free-gift greyish brown eyeshadow.
Foundation: Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer in Porcelain.
Blush: MAC cream blush in Posey.
Powder: A mix of Clinique translucent to set oily areas (like my nose, forehead, chin) and Guerlain pressed meteorites powder in Mythic Parfait on less oily areas (for a little glow).
Lips: Just some strawberry balm.

    (And sidekick, not the main characters, at that - unusual and good.)

  2. Ana - I especially think Flit has great colours, and what about Iago! So many possibities :)
