Spring Makeup: Antique Gold

When it comes to metallics, I am usually a silver tone person. Gold was never really my THANG, though I do wear it every now and then. Lately, for some reason, I have been attracted to antique/neutral golds rather than yellow, brassy, in-your-face sorts of gold tones that I would normally pick. I recently got a nice tunic top from Plastik Wrap that has a cute gold searhorse and tentacle print on it that inspired me to try some gold makeup. I also dug through my jewelry stash for some earrings that I bought to go with a shirt that got wrecked a long time ago. I love when I hold on to an old accesory/piece of clothing and find a new use for it later! I wore this look to go to a casual dinner party at a friend's place.


L'Oreal Colour Infallible eyeshadow in Sahara Treasure, Camo Glam eyeshadow (made by an independent company that I do not believe exists anymore), and MAC Cremesheen Glass in Jet Boy.

Have you resurrected any items from your wardrobe lately?


  1. So pretty and simple! I've loved looking at antique golden shades on other ladies but I personally don't wear many myself! I love those ear rings and how they go with the eyeshadow so well! I usually think of beautiful mysterious long haired boho looking ladies when I think antique gold! Far from my style although I can see it being a shade so easy to wear!

  2. I love those kind of gold shades, too. I should dig them out again - they always go really well with summer makeup - all the bright lipsticks and things.

    I haven't really resurrected anything from my wardrobe, but I did do a massive cleaning and got rid of things that I'd been holding on to for too long! That felt good.

  3. No, I haven't...usually if I'm not wearing it, there's a reason. I've tried to revive a few pieces, but no. It's usually when I buy something cheap because it's cheap. I am absolutely digging your makeup. The gold eyeshadow is so glamorous.
