Light, soft golden tones applied to the lids with deeper gold blended in the crease creates a “sunrise” effect that is seriously gorgeous. The mixed gold tones shape and contour eyes in all the right places, and the slightly metallic finish on the lids is breathtaking.

The tiniest hint of gold along the eyelids gives just enough shimmer and sparkle, while soft nude colors are blended in the crease and worn on the cheeks and lips. Gold can instantly enhance skin even when applied lightly, which is why it’s such a beautiful color to wear in any season.

Gold Smoke

Gold that glistens on the eyelids paired with deeper shades makes way for a golden smoky shadow look that is gorgeous any time of the year. Wear it for a special occasion, or just because you feel like it—we highly approve either way. To create a smoky look, try using Natasha Denona’s Bronze Eyeshadow Palette ($65) for lots of shadow pairing inspiration.

Just a touch of gold defines the eyelids in the best way, while an allover dewy look ensures a radiant glow. By keeping things largely simple, you barely have to do anything to put emphasis on your eyes.

Hint of Gold, Pop of Color

Continuing with our theory that gold and bright colors pair perfectly together, this look explains itself without us really having to do any extra work. The bright liner on the inner and outer corners of the eyes paired with bronze-gold eyelids is a look we won’t be forgetting any time soon. The gold and bronze shadows from Urban Decay’s Naked Honey Eyeshadow Palette ($49) are perfect for recreating this look.

Glittery and Glossy

A touch of glitter, a smoky wing, and a beautiful shiny lip allow this gold eyeshadow look to radiate and shimmer in all the right places. You can apply whichever shimmery gold you want to the lids, then precisely apply and blend a darker shade before finishing your look with an allover dewy, glossy finish.

Golden Soft Glam

Soft golden eyeshadow glam is the best kind because of how versatile it can be. In this case, gold eyeshadow is blended on the eyes and followed up with bronze shadows that ever so softly contour the crease. Eyeliner and a few coats of mascara finish the look off strong.

Even the most subtle gold shadow makes a statement, like this glittery golden dream scattered just across the eyelids. Apply the shadow to lids in a packing motion with your brush or finger to ensure you get your desired level of sparkle.
