Gold Eye Makeup For The Holidays

When it comes to holiday eye makeup, anything goes. Some women go for the sultry smoky eye, some for a colourful, glittery eye and some for a more natural, earthy look. One of our favourite eye makeup looks this holiday season is the golden eye. Gold eye shadows, gold eye liners, shimmer sticks and highlighters have been spotted on celebs and models this fall and it’s a look we highly recommend for the holiday season. 

Popular eye colour combinations this season include gold and black, gold and green, brown and gold and gold and purple. You can make it a soft gold eye, a sexier, smoldering one, or a more shimmery one. No matter how you wear it, gold eye makeup is a hot trend this holiday season. Check out our top gold eye makeup picks below and a fun, how-to video by Carli Bybel for creating the perfect gold brown eye makeup look.
