♕ Goldust MakeUp #1: Soft Shades & Gold Liner ♕
{Feat. Nabla Cosmetics ~ Goldust Collection}

Today I'm going to show you the first makeup look I made a couple of days ago to try the new shades from NABLA's Goldust Collection (here's my haul post!). I used all the four shadows I bought (Luna, Snowberry, Glasswork, Danae) plus the gold Dazzle Liner - which is my new love and main focus of this look. 


That day I had really little spare time, so I just grabbed my new products and made a very easy peasy look. I kept it very soft because the shades I purchased are all very natural (except Danae which is a little stronger) and also because I wanted the gold eyeliner, Klimt, to be the key product, the main focus of the look. (Yes it was love at first sight and yes, it's my favourite product of the entire collection so far)


I started off by applying my eye base (this time I went back to Too Faced's Shadow Insurance), then I applied Glasswork on my inner corner - to be honest I didn't anticipate it to be so... Colourless. Its hazelnut base simply vanished, once applied D: I tried to layer it a bit, unsuccessfully. It reminds me (way to much) of Water Dream - which also has almost no base colour, and is full of glitters.
I applied Luna all over the lid, followed by Snowberry on my crease and outer corner. Narciso and Antique White are, as always, the transition colour and brow bone shade respectively.
Luna and Snowberry make a nice colour combination, very natural and wearable - they give me Naked 3 vibes - but also a little flat for my taste. That's were the gold liner comes in!


I applied Klimt as I would do with any other eyeliner: I drew a pretty thick line (because I knew I wanted to apply the black liner below, also) and I got really excited to see how easy it is to apply. I love its teeny tiny brush, its fluid and perfectly pigmented formula - and of course its shade, so unique.
I drew the black line right below the gold one, keeping it thin - as I didn't want it to cover/overwhelm the main gold line.

We're almost done - I applied Danae on the lower lid (spoiler: it is my favourite shadow from this collection), then completed the look by applying eye kohl, false lashes and mascara.


So here's the first look I made to try out the new colours from the Goldust Collection! Some behaved as I was expecting (Luna, Snowberry), others surprised me a lot (Danae), while other let me down a bit (Glasswork). The Dazzle Liner in Klimt is definitely the jewel in the crown of this collection - I'm already planning to buy a backup, since it's a limited edition. 
Overall I liked this look - a little too plain for my taste, but it was easy and quick to make, and very wearable, I'll give it that... But I can't wait to show you the look I did next, which is waaay more exciting :p
