Gold Rush

As seen on the runways of Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, and Marchesa.  Gold is one of the colors that flatters any skin tone.  It will brighten and make the color of your eyes pop.  It can be dressed up by adding black or brown eyeliner for evening or just a light dusting of the gold on the top and bottom lids for daytime dazzle.  I always suggest using 2-3 coats of mascara day or night.

The trick to selecting gold eye shadow is to pick the warmest color that blends with your skin tone.  Fair skin should use more light yellow golds while olive or ebony skin should lean more toward bronze and darker metallics.  You can also use the 24K gold dust (as seen in the picture above) to highlight your cheek bones and brow bones. 

What is your favorite color to make your eyes sparkle?

  1. I love using light purples and blues around the eyelids to make them shine.

  2. I just love Jane Iredale's 24 Karat Gold Dust, but thanks for sharing some other products as well, gold is in for sure!
