SIMPLE SILVER EYESHADOW

Neutrals are a safety go-to, which can make an eyeshadow color like silver feel like you’re really pushing the boundaries. Silver can be a tricky color to rock. When done well and simply as the [singular] focal point on the eye, it’s a stunning statement and pop of color.

ALL-OVER GOLDEN GLOW

This artsy look will have you feeling like an art piece. It pairs a flawless base with a glam-neutral look including natural but defined brows, a smudgy lash line, and subtle ombre lips. On top, add a sheen of a true gold highlighter. Get liberal with it, extending the highlighter up to your eye just under the brow bone, on the Cupid’s bow, and the chin. You can even add some to your collar bones for extra effect.

GRAPHIC OIL-SLICK EYES

I love the combination of a graphic shape mixed with a light-reflecting metallic aspect to it. I’m even more inspired by the people who love to play with these styles and textures. It’s bold and mesmerizing, and you can’t help but stare!

GILDED NAILS

I love gold anywhere I can put it and make it make sense. Try a gold-dipped French mani, all-over gold, or a bit of golden glitter on top of a neutral hue. Crimson also has a pretty sweet hack for this one, which involves gold eyeshadow! Take clear nail polish and your favorite metallic eyeshadow – perhaps one that’s broken – and add it to the clear polish. Now you have a custom polish.

Take your lips to the next level by coating them in sparkly goodness. The key is to use high-quality, cosmetic-grade products that will hold up throughout the evening.
