A Brave New Year FOTD

I love reading FOTD posts, so I thought I'd summon the courage to give it a try. Please be kind, I'm still learning how to apply makeup and how to work the camera. I have learned to live with the bits that only PS can fix :)

I based my new year's eve look on the gold Shiseido cream eyeshadow I recently purchased (I'm a sucker for GWPs). It's a very simple look that's within my skill-level, a wash of eyeshadow, some blush and a festive lipstick.

The mug shots were taken with an Olympus Camera, indoors with natural light from windows. I intend to learn how to use my DH's Canon DSLR for future FOTDs as that seems to make my skin less hideous.
