Purple and Gold (with glitter!!) cut crease/Arabic(ish) look!

I'm on a roll!  Third post in 3 days.  Not too shabby if I do say so myself!  I get into a groove where I do my makeup nicely a lot and then I have a week or two where I barely do anything.  It'd be better if it were more consistent but whatev.  So today I wanted to use my gold glitter liner for some reason.  I saw it sitting there and gold glitter sounded good.  But I don't really wear gold very often so I debated on what to do.  Then I saw my MUFE 92 shadow sitting there too and they looked like they wanted to be worn together.  So I went with that.  I know I've done purple and gold kinda like this before but I like it.  So here's what I did today!
I used Kassie's suggestions and used natural light and a flash for this picture

Natural light (thank goodness for sunshine today!!)

Natural light again but no flash.  See how you can't see the glitter like you can in the first picture?

I really like how this came out.  I don't think the cut crease shape I made this time is the best shape for my eyes but I like it anyways.
What I used:
NYX JEP "milk"
Jesse's Girl loose pigment a white gold color (on lid and as highlight)
NYX Candy Glitter Liner "Gold"
NYX shadow "black"
Revlon/Wet 'n Wild black liquid liners mixed
L'oreal Voluminous Carbon Black

ELF Studio cream liner "Coffee"
Inglot 363 M

ELF blush/bronzer duo
NYX "peach" blush

MAC "Myth" lipstick
NYX "Thalia" lipstick

So that's my look for today.  It's pretty dramatic, with the glitter and all, but I think it's fun.  

This is a picture I took yesterday but I wanted to show you.  We had the most gorgeous sunset.  Like it was stunning.  Everything had a soft orange glow, it was beautiful!  I just love sunsets!
Isn't is gorgeous??  I could just stare at it all day haha.

But that's all I have for today!  As always, thank you soooo much for checking this out!  I appreciate your support so much!!  Thanks guys!!
