Eyeshadow Tips: How to Wear Gold Eyeshadow

March 16, 2007

Unlike the gold eyeshadow we see last year, the color this year is more metallic with a bit of cool undertones. Below are two different ways to wear it as requested by Shellie.

Look #1: Gold + Silver = Cool Look
As spotted on the Chanel Spring 2007 runway, gold + silver eyes are oh-so-hot right now! To recreate the look, apply the silver color of Chanel Lumiere Dartifices ($75) on your entire upper eyelid and the gold color from the same palette on your lower eye. Alternatively, you try MAC Perverted Pearl eyeshadow and Jane Goldilocks.

As for the rest of your face, keep it as bare as possible. Use a tinted moisturizer and concealer to cover up all flaws and even out skin tone. Brush an eyebrow gel on your eyebrows. Draw a thin line along your upper lash line and apply several coats of black mascara. Finish the look with a slick of peachy pink lip color.

Look #2: Gold + Purple = Girly Look
For a more girly look, try pairing gold with purple just like MAC’s about-to-be-released collection, Strange Hybrid. This combo has always been my favorite and will look good on anyone.

Simply sweep a gold eyeshadow like Rose Blanc from the collection on your upper eye followed by a dark purple eyeshadow like Fertile on your lower eye. Another way to do this is to apply the purple on your entire eyelid and the gold on your crease.

When using such colors, try to keep the rest of your face as understated as possible. A little baby pink blush and gloss with lots and lots of mascara will do.
