Some trends are so wild, unexpected and flashy that they are nearly impossible to actually pull-off, and better suited to be admired from afar. Others are more subtle, gaining steam over time without causing a fuss. While tougher to spot, it's these subtler trends that tend to be the most wearable – and Hollywood just gave us fall's biggest one yet: golden eyes and glossy lips. Not only are gold lids and glossy lips easy to master, there's really no wrong way to wear them.
From metallic bronze to soft copper and electric gold, there's a fresh version spotted on multiple celebrities for everyone – each of which is paired with a lip that ranges from vinyl shine to soft sheen. While this look is quite simple to achieve, Get The Look is showing you how to perfect it for a flawless fall look!
MAKEUP TREND: GOLDEN EYES AND GLOSSY LIPS
The whole point of this trend is to play up your eyes with a golden, shimmery shadow for a warm, subtle look. When it comes to mastering this look, it's important to let your personality shine through – so find a shadow and technique that works for your eyes. While those with bright blue eyes may want to enhance them with a lighter gold shimmery shadow, those with brown or dark eyes might opt for a golden shade that's closer to brown. If you aren't into shimmery gold's but would still like to try out the look, opt for a rust-coloured shade of matte shadow to enhance your eyes.
We encourage you to play up your eyes with the technique that works best for you, but if you need a little extra inspiration, here are a few ways to play around with gold shadow:
Tip 1: Start off by creating a base on your lids with a light brown shadow, then using an angled shadow brush, use gold glitter shadow to create small dashes of sparkle along your upper lash line and beneath your lower one, like Margot Robbie. If you're feeling extra daring you can even apply small doses of glitter between your brows.
Tip 2: To enhance blue eyes like Barbara Palvin's , apply an orange, rust coloured shadow to your lids and beneath your lower lash line, then layer it with a gold shadow for a little shimmer.
Tip 3: If you have brown eyes, incorporate glitter into your look like Kim Kardashian by applying brown shadow on your upper lids and beneath your lower lashes, then apply gold shadow into the inner corners of your eyes, creating a slight V-shape.
When applying foundation, it's important to think about your skin type. If you have dry skin, a powder foundation may enhance the dryness. If you have oily skin, liquid foundation will only create more oil. After you've found a foundation that works for you, unify your base with a makeup sponge.
To enhance the golden shimmer on your lids, apply a small dose of highlighter on the upper part of your cheekbones. And if you're really into the glow-y look, apply it on your forehead, bridge of nose and chin as well!
Now for the easy part: The lips. Arm yourself with a clear gloss of your choice and layer it on for a full-on glow-y makeup look. If you'd like to add a bit of colour to your complexion, opt for a soft shade of pink lipgloss.
