FOTN & EOTN: Sunlit Gold

I haven't posted a FOTD/EOTD (Face/Eye of the Day, for those of you who didn't know what that meant) in a while but I remembered to take a few photos before I shot out the door on Wednesday to go to a pre-wedding party.
Yes, you read correctly - I had another wedding this weekend.
It seems that people are getting married left, right and center this year and I have atleast another 3 to attend over the next couple of months. Crazy, I know!

Anyway, this is what the ol' muggins looked like:
I went for a simple look with no major colour blocking or splashes as the pre-wedding party was a small family affair and wasn't really the place for crazy colours.
Products on my face:
- Benefit 'Porefessional'
- Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation
- Benefit 'Girl Meets Pearl' - mixed in with foundation
- Bobbi Brown Sheer Loose Powder - to set
- Benefit Erase Paste concealer
- MAC Powder Blush in 'Sur' - from the Mickey Contractor collection
- MAC Powder Blush in 'Style'

Products on my lips:
- Lancome L'Absolue Rouge lipstick in 152 Rouge Mars
- Lancome Juicy Tubes lipgloss in 31 Peche

This is a closer look at my eyes:

For the eye makeup, I went with what I do best - a simple golden/brown look and a slick of black liquid liner paired with lashings of mascara. I've done this look on countless occasions and it always manages to do the job and accentuate my brown eyes and make my look complete.

Products I used:
- Urban Decay Primer Potion
- 17 Vintage Love palette in Metallic Nudes - I used pretty much all of the shades in the palette (which is pretty good considering it was only £4 or something around that price) and MAC 'Grain' as a highlight.
- Lancome Artliner in Noir
- Paula's Choice Illicit Lash Maximum Impact Mascara
- Max Factor Kohl Eyeliner
- ELF Eyebrow Lifter & Filler - I used the 'Filler' end with my Bobbi Brown Eyebrow Brush to make my brows fuller and then set them with Natio Brow & Lash Gel.

That's it. Job done!
What do you think? Did I pull of a Sunlit Gold look pretty well or would you recommend I try some different products to achieve more of a sunkissed look? Let me know in the box.

Until next time...
Keep swivelling those hips in your
