Whether you have light, medium or dark skin a shimmer of gold can illuminate your eyes and your skin just in time for the holidays!
Here are 3 steps to being golden (and red!) this season:
- Prime and Paint. Sweep a cream eye shadow over lid from lash line to crease with your base shadow brush and blend out the edges with your deluxe crease brush. Dip your shading brush into glitter, tap off excess, and press onto the cream pigment. Keep glitter close to the eye for a subtle look or work out toward the crease and/or eyebrow for more drama. Try NYX Cream Shadow in Gold (1), Makeup Forever Glitter in Gold (2).
- Highlight. Choose a light golden shimmer like Bobbi Brown Nude Glow Shimmer Brick (3) and apply along temple and upper cheekbone stopping at the outside of iris with your buffing brush (4). Just a little shimmer goes a long way—light (natural or flash) will bounce off of the shimmer accenting your bone structure.
- Accent Color. Choose a creamy bright red (one that suits your unique coloring) and apply to lip with your detailer brush. The contrast in color and texture will balance out the sparkle going on above! Try Bobbi Brown Creamy Lip Color in Red Carpet (5).
