FOTD- Red and Gold Eyes

Isn't the weather miserable today? I decided to brighten my day up with a little colourful make-up.

My eye bags appear to be alarmingly large today so apologies for that!
I've noticed recently that I've moved away from colourful eye make-up so I've decided to make a conscious effort to get back into the habit. I used to have big bold eyes everyday so I'm not too sure what happened.
As the base I've just used a small amount of Garnier BB cream topped with my trusty Calvin Klein pressed powder and a sweep of a light blusher across the cheeks. On my lips I used my Lush Lip Scrub and a light pink Barry M lipgloss.

To get the look on my eyes, first of all I used an eye primer to keep the colour looking bold and crease free. Using a flat brush I applied the gold shadow to the inner corner of the eye, blending it out towards the middle of the eye. I did this on the top and bottom then, after cleaning the brush, I lightly built up the red around the edges, blending it inwards until the two colours meet and blend together in the middle of the eyelid. I extended the red a little along the crease of the eye to give more depth. Next I used a waterproof black pencil in the water line to enhance the lower lashes and finished off with a coat of Max Factor False Lash Effect mascara and a spritz of setting spray.
Et voila!
Do you like the bold eyed look? Does anyone know when this gloomy weather will end?
