I drew my inspiration for the colors for the look from the element, symbol, metal, and look of the lion. The Zodiac Element is Fire and I figured it was apt to use bright orange (specifically Sugarpill's Flamepoint) and the metal is gold so I had to use Sugarpill Goldilux. Its symbol is the Lion so I was inspired by their eyes to try to do cat eye liner and also to emulate the flaxen mane of a lion with a pale gold.
I went through a few renditions of the look before I settled on this one and it was starting to get super hot in my room so that may explain my expression in this picture. I feel like I look all surly but this was a mixture of me becoming overheated and wanting to get a good picture.
I just adore the metallic sheen of Goldilux, it's easily my favorite gold eyeshadow to use.
