Going For Gold

Posted on: Wednesday, May 7, 2014

Sparkly, metallic, shimmery or matte… I am in love with gold tones for makeup.
Blame it on the abundance of gorgeous autumn leaves behind my house…but I can’t get enough of this look.
So I thought I share my pro beauty tips on how to achieve this look:

From a sweep of golden shimmer to flashes of bold gold applied to the inner corners the eyes for an enhancing effect, this trend is the epitome of romantic and translates beautifully for an ethereal bride!
A good quality shimmer can also be mixed in with your lotion, to enhance collarbones or shoulders. It’s best to be applied with a good quality dome shaped makeup brush.

In the evening cheekbones, cupids-bow & bridge of the nose can be highlighted the same way sweeping the smallest amount along those areas with a dome shaped or contouring brush.
It’s important to keep glitter as an accent and to avoid too much all over use, to keep it elegant and timeless.
Golden shimmer suits all complexions, although I recommend warmer deep gold and coppers for dark skin tones and light soft honey golds for fair skin, rose gold can also work wonders on fair skin too. It’s good to test a little swatch of colour on your cheek to see which hue works best with your skin tone.
Please refer to the inspiration images for ideas of how to have a play with the new gold makeup products.
I love soft washes all over the lid, as well as more graphic statements.

A full lash line compliments the eye and the softness of this style perfectly, using several coats of a voloumizing and lengthening mascara, carefully brushed out to achieve a natural looking fullness and separation. For your wedding day I recommend using a water resistant formula.
The eyes will best be finished of with a very soft and natural brow, only filled in with a light powder, were necessary. A good helper to hold them in place is stroke of clear brow-gel.
The lips can be left nude or soft pink for a soft look or add a deep red lip for more drama and evening looks.

I love how this looks is catchy and captivating, yet subtle enough to work for brides too.
It perfectly translates from day to evening, which makes it super wearable too.
