By now you’ve probably guessed that we absolutely love using one product in so many awesome ways. Multitasking beauty products are super handy to have around and can help make you look fabulous while saving money. Gold eye shadow is a must, especially with the festive season here. We give you a few awesome ways to use gold eye shadow on different parts of your face to help you really shine this festive season.
1. As An Eyeliner
You can really make your eyes pop by using any gold eye shadow you have lying around as an eyeliner. Apply it with a flat eye brush along your lower water line to brighten up your peepers instantly. You can also switch up your ordinary black eyeliner for this and draw a thick/ thin line - whatever you feel like - to change up your look. You can also apply it to the inner corners of your eyes and pair with black liner to really make it stand out.
2. Enhance Your Brows
No, we don’t mean to step out with golden brows, obviously, but a little bit of shimmer is a great way to enhance your brows and define them well. Brush on a bit of your eyeshadow along your eyebrows and blend super well to help make them stand out.
3. As A Bronzer
No need to invest in a pricey bronzer when you can add some shimmer with your gold eye shadow. Use it to avoid looking washed out and to really light up your face. Apply some powder shadow on your face with a big, fluffy brush and tone down any excess sparkle with loose powder.
4. Highlight Your Features
We’re all pretty obsessed with highlighting right now (hello, strobing!). Who wouldn’t want to bring a gorgeous glow to their face? One quick way to do it is by dabbing your eyeshadow along the high points of your face, namely your cheekbones, brow bone, the bridge of your nose and cupid’s bow. Don’t forget to blend well. You’ll be amazed at how luminous you look.
5. Plump Up Your Lips
Adding some shine to the centre of your lips is a sneaky trick to make them appear fuller. So don’t be afraid to brush on your eyeshadow in the middle of your lips before applying your lipstick or gloss. Also, apply it right above your lips, on the lip line along the cupid’s bow. It may sound ridiculous at first, but once you try it and see how fabulous your pout looks you’ll know why.
6. For Flawless Legs
Try this tip the next time you wear a short dress or skirt to wow wherever you go. Mix some powder eyeshadow in your body lotion before applying it on your legs to help them shine every time the light hits them with every step. It will give the illusion of soft, shiny skin that will get heads turning.
7. On Your Eyes, Obviously!
Stippling your favourite gold eye shadow onto your lids and then blending well is perfect look for a Diwali party or wedding. Gold eyeshadow compliments Indian skin tones amazingly, so don’t shy away from using it. Finish off with mascara to make your eyes look super gorgeous.
