This golden eye makeup isn’t OTT, but it also isn’t very low-key either. Finding the right balance between the two, this look is apt for a party or even just a night out on the town. 

 

How to create the look

 

Step 1 - Eyeshadow

 

Dab a little eye sparkle shadow on your eyelids and blend away. When it comes golden, there are different shades you can actually pick from. All you need is the best eyeshadow from your makeup products. Whether you choose to go with a yellowish gold, a copper-gold, or even rose gold, it’s entirely up to you –– take your pick.

Step 2 - Eyeliner

 

Use a liquid liner to create a small and sharp wing. Make sure the line is very fine, except for when you reach the outer corners of your eyes. That’s when the wing needs to be a little thick.

The formula gives you a matte finish with an intense colour payoff that’s waterproof and long-lasting. The tip is so fine that you can even apply it super close to your lash line.

This is an ultra-glam look that uses golden in its best and most eye-catching form –– a dramatic smokey eye. This golden eye makeup look takes elements from two beloved trends and converts them into a single gorgeous and glam one!

 

Step 1 - Eyeshadow

 

Go for a dramatic eyeshadow palette for this look. Make sure you look for blacks and browns in your palette, as there’s going to be a lot of layering. Apply a deep matte brown eyeshadow on the outer corners of your eyes and blend it towards your crease. Take a bronze shimmery eyeshadow and apply it to the centre of your eyelid –– now blend that shade across your entire eyelid. Add a hint of shimmer to the inner corners of your eyes and your golden smokey eye is good to go!

Step 2 - Mascara

 

It’s all about the lashes with this one! Go for a mascara that’ll give you the effect of wearing false lashes without making you feel heavy…the way false lashes do. Apply 2-3 coats of it, making sure you cover each hair from top to bottom.

Golden eye makeup doesn’t necessarily mean you stick to only hues of gold. Mix and match the gold with a pink or purple shade and create a beautiful smokey eye. Scroll down to see how you can do this too!

 

How To Recreate This Look

 

Step 1 - Eyeshadow 

 

Apply a shimmery golden eyeshadow on your eyelids and blend it out into your crease and outer corners of your eyes. Take a flat eyeshadow brush and dip it in a shimmery purple or pink colour –– apply it like eyeliner on your eyelids. Just make sure the eyeshadow line is very fine. Using a blending brush blend the line lightly into the golden eyeshadow, just so that it isn’t very harsh.

Apply sparkly gold eyeshadow to the centre of your eyelids. Take a darker matte hue, and apply it to the outer corners of your eyes. Create a bit of a wing when doing so.
