Cream Base Golden Makeup Look – Tutorial

As the days get warmer and brighter, I crave a more natural look. Don’t get me wrong I loooooooove a bright lip in the warmer months, but in terms of the face and eyes, they’re definitely more neutral, shimmery and golden.

My favourite way to look more natural is to use numerous cream products and less powders for my base. The products used in this tutorial are my favourite for a cream base, they give my face a gorgeous glow.

The Urban Decay Naked palette is great go-to palette for creating this kind of look, and it doesn’t matter what Naked palette they’re on these days.. 4? The original is always the best, just like film series. You can never get better than the first.

Using my favourite shades from the palette, I’ve created this gorgeous golden makeup look. I hope you enjoy!
