Learn how to wear gold eye makeup the right way

How To Wear Gold Eye Makeup When most people imagine gold eye makeup, disco is typically the first image that comes to mind. Gold eye makeup can be tricky, but it can look amazing when done the right way. Be sure to follow this list of guidelines when attempting to master the perfect gold eye look. First, keep your gold in check. If you are doing gold eyes, stick to that and keep your lips and cheeks neutral. You do not want to go into gold overload by doing gold eye makeup along with gold cheek shimmer and lip gloss as well. The quality of the eye makeup you select is also important, as an overly shiny or sparkly gold will detract from your look. Pick an eye shadow that contains a sheer hint of gold without going overboard. Read 7 Worst Eyeshadows for a list of eye makeup to avoid.

If you are not up to the task of doing an entire eyelid in gold, there are other ways you can create a gold eye makeup look. For instance, you can use a gold pencil eyeliner to line your lash lines for a subtle pop of gold, or you can apply a sheer gold color to your brow bone area as a highlighter.

Gold does look good on blue eyes and is not really that difficult to master as it is a type of neutal unless its a sparkly or glitery formula. I have a palette with two gold shades, a rusty colour, dk brown and green. It offers beaur=tiful choices and brings out blue eyes wonderfully. If you want less neutral add some of the green. It is Lise Watier Summer 2012 Summer Sunset, Tropical (there were two in colection)

I bought an all gold kit from ELF. They have very affordable makeup. It had eye shadow, lip gloss , bronzer and a few other items for less than $20. I have bought a lot of stuff from there. Gold is a great highlighter for browns shades of eyeshadows.

I like combining my golds with green, orange, or a nice cinnamon brown.

Look for golds that compliment your skin tone, just a few shades darker than your skin.
