Gold on the eyelids: instructions for a trendy makeup

Walleye at the top of the podiums
If khaki makeup was the star of the fall / winter 2012/2013 parades with the return of the army chic trend, the gold is undoubtedly contesting the first place on the podium. More discreet, he has nevertheless shone on Yves Saint Laurent shows, Dior, Monique Lhuillier, Carlos Miele, Roberto Cavalli, Nanette Leopore or Badgley Mischka. Our favorite: the make-up of the Barbara Bui show, ultra chic and desirable. The look of the models was perfectly highlighted by a sparkling gold eyeshadow resting on the mobile eyelid. The eyes of the tops were thus as adorned with gold leaves. Simple but ultra efficient.
All roads lead to gold
If, during the holidays, we tend to let go on the walleye, the golden girl look of autumn is much more chic and controlled. There is no question of turning into a Christmas tree but to use gold to warm our eyes. And, without having the heavy hand, the gold really allows to have fun. We can first play with different shades of gold, from champagne to bronze, golden offers us a thousand possibilities. Then we have fun with the shape: we dress his eyes with a halo 100% gold as Carlos Miele or just apply his makeup on the eyelid, as Barbara Bui or Monique Lhuillier. For a cooler look, we zap the eyeliner and we just marry it with a black or brown mascara and perfectly worked eyebrows. We can also associate its golden makeup with other shades, khaki as in National Costume, or brown as at Dior. We then put the walleye on the eyelid and the other eye shadow darker externally. Finally, the gold, placed at the inner corner of the eye, can illuminate a makeup, as Roberto Cavalli or Nanette Lepore.
The look that puts your eyes on it
Eyeshadow is not our only option to make our eyes shine thanks to walleye. More original, we can also bet on eyeliner or pencil for the eyes. We have totally caught on the fall look imagined by the makeup brand Black Up. A rather classic purple look makeup is totally boosted by a line of gold eyeliner. Superb. Less radical, Badgley Mischka, is a line of gold pencil at the bottom of the lower lashes that illuminates a purple on the eyelid mobile. This precious pencil stroke has already been adopted by Doutzen Kroes at the Dance For Life Cocktail at the end of October with success!
