To get this eye look, ensure you have a good gold eyeshadow and a bold bronze eyeliner.
1.) Start off by sweeping your lids with a soft base colour that will act as a foundation for the gold shadow. We like bareMinerals Well-Rested as it provides an excellent canvas for eye make-up and assists in making you look fresh and awake.
2.) Next, take to your entire lid with a gold eyeshadow (we’re loving Bobbi Brown Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow in Gold), working it up to your brow bone, into the corner of each eye, and underneath your bottom lash line too.
3.) To intensify the colour, simply take to your lash line with a pigmented crayon that’s easy to blend. We like Vani-T Krush Minerals Eye Crayon in Bronzalicious for this.
You can also add a swipe to the brow bone and the corner of each eye if you’d like the look to be more pronounced. Just remember to blend the crayon into the gold shadow properly.
4.) For the lips, use a good lip primer, which will keep your colour in place for longer. We like Clinique All About Lips, which is hydrating and minimises fine lines.
5.) Next, take a lip brush (like Adorn’s Retractable Lip Brush) to a gold lip colour of your choice. We’re loving MAC Lipstick in Out Minxed (a light yellow gold) from its new Leopard Luxe Collection.
6.) Once you have applied one coat, wait 60 seconds for it to dry before applying a second coat. The colour shouldn’t look as bold as if you were applying a pink or red hue as gold is naturally more sheer, which means it may look more like a pigmented gloss that leaves a brilliant sheen to your pout.
