Heavy Metals: Eyes Get Gilt-y for Evening

  • The value of gold is at a premium for nighttime. Here’s how to master the metallics that give lids a foiled effect for a gilded eye with a big beauty payoff.

  • Start by giving your complexion an allover radiance with a few drops of Magic Lumi Light Infusing Primer smoothed over your face. This creates an instant boost on its own, or you can mix it right into your regular foundation.

  • Give your cheeks a subtle flush of color with a light dusting of True Match Blush in Sweet Ginger—a color that won’t compete with the gorgeous, shimmery eye you’re about to create.

  • To give eyes a deeply dimensional glow, the trick is to use complementary shades of gold. We love the luxe, velvety texture of Infallible® 24 HR Eye Shadow for its rich effects. Apply Eternal Sunshine to the entire lid from lash line to brow. Next, use the Bronzed Taupe color to add depth by applying it to the eye creases and outer corners of eyes.

  • Now make the gilded look really pop by drawing a line along top lashes with Extra Intense™ Liquid Pencil Eyeliner in Black. Finally, pile on the mascara—black-as-night Voluminous® False Fiber Lashes™ provides dramatic contrast.

  • Finish with a soft berry shade on your lips. Infallible® Le Rouge in Beyond Blushing lends just the right flush.
