All That Glitters is Gold (Eye Shadow, That is)…

Once New York Fashion Week came to a close, we had the chance to look at all the fashion and beauty coverage that predicts what we’ll be wearing in the next few months and into the fall. One of the trends we noted right away was the heavy use of gold makeup, particularly on the eyes. At BCBG Max Azria, Band of Outsiders, Donna Karan, J Mendel, Rag and Bone, and Rodarte, makeup artists interpreted these designers’ call for gilded faces.

This is a universally flattering look – you’ll see it across various skin tones and eye colors: In a monochrome look with golden-toned bronzer and a warm yellow-based brown lipstick a shade or two more intense than the eye shadow; on an otherwise bare face with nude lips to make the eyes the total focus of the look; and paired with a baby-pink lipstick and an otherwise bare face.

ColorOn’s 14-Karat and Bronze Goddess instant eye shadows will help you achieve these looks. 14-Karat is a gradient wash of rich golds from pale to intense 14-karat bright gold, and depending on how heavily you apply, you can go from a pale wash like Donna Karan and J Mendel to the highly intense gold shown at Rodarte.

Bronze Goddess is a shimmery gold and glimmering deep brown, combining to create a deeper gilded bronzed look. With this colorOn look, you can easily recreate the heavier metals shown at Rodarte, Rag and Bone, and BCBG Max Azria.

Gold isn’t the only metallic showing up on the runways; our post two weeks ago was titled “Heavy Metal Eyes.” Come check out all of the great metallic looks we have at colorOn, where you can mix-and-match you own custom kit, or choose from pre-selected variety kits, at the same price. Surely we have something shiny that will catch your eye!
