Golden Cleopatra Eyes: Test Shoot with Sihle Sogaula and Gemma Shepherd

4:33:00 PM

In light of Pat McGrath's release of her Gold 001 pigment, I wanted to create a beauty look inspired by Pat's now iconic solid-gold Cleopatra eyes, which over the past few years have become a cult on international runways.

In these images shot by Gemma Mary Shepherd, I used Mehron's Metallic Powder in 'Gold' to create an edgy, winged cat's eye.

A little beauty tip? If you want to prevent an eye makeup look like this from creasing, make sure to add some eye shadow primer to your lids. A primer will create a matte base over the area and also diminish any pesky oils sitting on the surface of your lids. These oils are usually the main culprits behind creasing or fading eye shadow.

Mehron's Metallic Powder comes in various shades and can be bought at Kohl Makeup Academy or Masque FX Warehouse in Cape Town.

Foundation: Mehron Celebre Pro-HD.
Concealer: Alila Corrector Palette (R370).
Lipstick: Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipstick in Matte Shades (R245) Chocolate.
