Party season is the perfect opportunity to bring out your inner glitterati and wear gold… not just on your nails! There are dozens of ways to incorporate gold into your makeup, from super easy looks like gold glitter eyeliner to more complex makeup, like the black and gold smoky eye look, for example.

So here’s the best 10 gold makeup ideas for every skills level.

1. Gold Foil Eyes

Stunning party makeup idea that is also easy to do.  Just add gold foil eye shadows like these Stila Magnificent Metal Foil.

3. Glitter Smoky Eye

Do the smoky eyes look as usual, then add extra shiny gold glitter eye shadows to the inner corners of your eye lids for extra drama. Try Makeup Forever D410 Gold Diamond eye shadow.

4. Golden Lips

Minimalist makeup with a statement lip. The true gold lipstick may not look particularly flattering, so use instead copper or bronze shades, like NARS Bilbao or Makeup Forever Diamond Copper Gold.

7. Gold Eyeshadows and Cat Eye Eyeliner

Some skill required for this makeup look. So it’s a good idea to practice your cat eye before the party to make sure you nail it on the big day. Use SmashBox Mini Full Exposure palette or shimmering NARS Dione eye shadow to achieve the look.

I’m loving the idea of mixed metallic eye shadow makeup (look #8), but for my face and complexion, the gold foil eyeshadow (looks #1 and #2) or the golden cat eye (look #7) will be more suitable. A definite possibility  for the New Year’s Eve. What about you, which look do you like the most? Keen to try any?
