Master the Midas Touch in Gold Eye Makeup

Gold Eye Shadow Trends
Pro makeup artists are mining gold shadows to give smoky eyes a gorgeous, sun-kissed twist. Now’s the time to master the Midas touch: the good news is that this look is perfection on everyone. Here are a few tricks for wearing shimmery gold eye shadow for a sultry evening or daytime look. Try on gold eye shadow in our virtual makeup studio.

Anyone can wear gold eye shadow; the trick is to select a warm color that blends easily with your skin tone. Ebony and olive skin tones are best paired with dark metallics that border on bronze, and fair skin looks ravishing in light yellow gold.

To get the gilded look without looking too disco queen-esque, use a soft, smudge-able charcoal pencil to line your lashes and set it with black or brown shadow. A hint of gold shimmer is sexy on the center of the lid and the inner corners of the eyes (near the tear ducts).

There are several variations of the gold eye makeup look: use gold shadow to line only your lower lashes, to highlight your brow bone, or to paint your entire lid. Pair 24 karat-inspired eye makeup with gilded lip gloss for maximum impact. You can also dust a bit of gold eye shadow on your cheekbones to give your face a goddess-inspired glow. --Stephanie Simons

Gold is always a beautiful color to work with; but, you never want to add too much of anything. You most likely want to balance your look. The eyes might get more attention then the lips or the blush. You want add a little of everything. So everything gets notice. This comment has been removed.

Depends on where you're wearing it to. if you're wearing casual clothes and have your face made up like that, maybe. but to a formal occasion, it would be a stunning look. This comment has been removed.

I like this look. would it be overkill to wear it with red lipstick like the model in the picture? This comment has been removed.
