Face of the day/turquoise and gold.

This look=super easy.  The great part is that you can alter colors: instead of turquoise you can go with blue, or purple (or any color you want for that matter).

Products used:
Rimmel London professional eyebrow pencil in Hazel

Urban Decay Primer Potion in Original
MAC pigment in Gold Mode
Benefit Lust Duster shimmering loose powder in Big Daddy and Snow Bunny
MAC eye kohl in Float On By
Smashbox Lash DNA Mascara in Jet Black

MAC beauty powder blush in On A Mission

MAC lipglaze in Beachbound
MAC lipglass in Flurry

This look is very spring time but I have been feeling like sun lately!  

First step:

Apply foundation/concealer as needed, fill in eyebrows, and prime the eyelids!

Step 2:

Apply your gold shadow all over the eyelid.  I used my MAC pigment in gold mode, but you use what you have!

Step 3:

Using a more rusty bronze color (I used Benefit Lust Duster in Big Daddy) with a fluffy brush apply to crease staying mostly on the outer corner.  You just want to add a little bit of depth here to the eye.  

Step 4, 5, & 6:

Apply the blue/turquoise/purple eye kohl to your water line, and lower lash line, making sure you stay close to the water line and gently smudge to blend.  Take a white/off white (I used Benefit Lust Duster in Snow Bunny) and apply to your tear duct area and blend into the gold.  You want to highlight the area-it will make you look more alert!  Curl your lashes and add mascara-several layers on top and one light coat on bottom is optional.

Steps 7 & 8:

Apply a wine colored blush to cheeks OR a nice bronzer-whichever you prefer and add some lip color in a bronze or nude shimmer along with a coat of lipgloss and you're done!  

So easy, and it will look like it took you much longer!  

Hope you enjoyed this face of the day!  If you have any questions or comments, be sure to let us know :)
