Zodiac Collaboration: Leo

I had so much fun doing the Sailor Moon Collaboration that when Amy asked if I was interested in doing another one, I jumped at the chance to do it. We went back and forth on what topic to do and finally decided on a Zodiac Collaboration and I called dibs on Leo (since that's my Zodiac!) I know that some people don't hold much stock in Astrology and their opinion falls along the lines of this while others are big believers but it's still nice to do a look on it anyway.

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.

  1. The gold and the liner are awesome. I love how you interpreted Leo!

  2. this reminds me of another look you did, I think. dunno if I'm just imagining things though. the liner look fab (as always) and I like how it's shorter than usual, it's cute!

  3. Wohoow, white liner! Looks fierce

  4. I'm a Leo so I definitely love this one! Gorgeous with the golds and red! :)

  5. Beautiful! I really like Goldilux, it has such easy blendability and it's so so so pigmented. Awesome! I updated my post to include your collab link :-D
