Golden Glow at The Met Gala

Golden Goddess Iman, a timeless beauty...

The 63rd annual Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art is where celebrities show their wilder sides after all of the Awards Shows are over. It’s the last major dress-up occasion of the season, and we were not disappointed, especially with so many women wearing Alexander McQueen, this year’s posthumous honoree.

One look we saw that is not only on-trend but plain and simply fabulous is the golden glow sported by Iman and Michelle Williams.

The ever-amazing Iman was breathtaking in head-to-toe gold from her hair to her Stella McCartney jumpsuit to her Louboutins. Her smoky gold eye makeup brought out the gorgeous caramel tones of her skin and hair. You can get the same look with colorOn’s Lava instant eye shadow from The Eye Envy Precious Metals Variety Kit, a mix of shimmering gold and black that will give you the same look in literally 5 minutes. After applying Lava to the eyes from the lash-line to the brow-bone, use an eyeliner brush to take a bit of the excess colorOn creamy mineral shadow and trace the black under the lower lash-line, and add a bit more gold to the inner corners of the eye. Set it with our glittering Get Set Powder #2, and you’ll be just as sultry as this fashion icon.

Golden Girl Michelle Williams

Golden Girl Michelle Williams

Michelle Williams had one of the most wildly successful Awards Seasons ever. Here, she ends the season with a golden glow offset by the sequined swallows on her amazing Miu Miu gown. She’s gone to a more golden blonde pixie, and her makeup is a tonal collection of golds, bronzes and caramel gloss. You can get the same eye look with colorOn’s 14 Karat instant eye shadow from The Metallics Variety Kit applied from lashes to brows. A bit of brow pencil to frame the eyes, plenty of mascara and a sweep of bronzer, and you can look like this Golden Girl.
