Gold, Blue and Black Dramatic Makeup look with MAC

This look was inspired by a picture a friend of mine posted on my FB a few days ago. I don't know the source of it so I'm not going to post it on here (don't want to get in trouble for stealing pictures!). So this is for you PJ!  The hubby loved this look on me so I will have to do it again!

The necklace is a one of a kind piece I made for myself several years ago. But if you like the style, you might like what's in my eBay store:
