I grew up when the Saints were bad.  So bad they were the “Ain’t”s.  So bad that the handful of fans in the Superdome wore paper bags on their heads whenever they got on TV.  Just when I thought Hurricane Katrina ruined NOLA for good, the voodoo deities declared that this is the washing of all previous sins by the Ain’t-s.  A Superbowl win, crazy video game offense, and a defense that couldn’t possibly go wrong.  Well, the defense did go wrong.  I don’t like to call them bounties, more like employee incentives for ESPN top 10 worthy clips and ending opponents’ careers.   I mean, hard hits are awesome in video games.  Might as well make it real, right?  I still call this crew the Saints.  Drew Breesus is enough proof the Saints are still blessed (or covered in voodoo gris-gris).

Colors Used
Black Eyeliner – Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero
Black Eyeliner (liquid) – Urban Decay 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Perversion
Old Gold – Combination.  Base layer is Inglot Cosmetics Freedom System Eyeshadow in 56 AMC.  Top layer is Disney Cinderella Collection By Sephora Storylook Eyeshadow Palette in Drizela (limited edition)
White Eyeliner – Kryolan Eye Liner in Silver. White may work better on you but silver really shows as white on my skin.

Chances are high you have a shiny golden eyeshadow in a palette or bought as a single.  The thing is, that gold is too shiny for the Saints.  You will need to muddy up that bright gold on purpose.  Use that taupe you always break out for work/day looks as a base layer.  Take a fluffy eyeshadow brush and gently lay down the shiny gold on top.  This way you get that antiqued gold look and enough shimmer to catch the sunlight.  You could go anywhere with your curves and flairs to match the Saints’ fleur de lys emblem.  If you decide to line your lower lash line, though, do not use liquid eyeliner.  Use an eyeliner pencil or even cream eyeshadow with a flat brush.  I do not want to hear stories of you having to flush your eye with running water for 30 minutes and admitting yourself to the ER.  For makeup.  There are plenty of video tutorials if you need guidance on how to line your lower lash line.  If the black is too scary for you, feel free to switch the placement of the white and black lines.
