Posted Oct 19, 2017
This fall we’ve noticed a very prominent hair and makeup trend: all things gold, shimmery, and glittery. And we are STOKED. Can you imagine a better trend? We think it’s especially perfect for this time of year. Not only will you softly glow in the gentle fall sun, but you will stand out among the orange and red leaves in the trees! To maximize on this brilliant trend, we’ve found some of the best gold and glitter looks for you to try.
Shimmer and Shine With Gold Makeup of All Kinds
There are tons of ways you can use glitter and gold makeup. From gold and smokey eyes, to shimmery lips, you’ve got to try these looks!
If you’ve ever wanted to achieve those fierce, beauty-blogger sparkle lids, try this simple smattering of glitter on the inner and lower eye. This will make your eyes crazy sparkle!
Intensify your life with brilliant golden lips. To achieve this look simply use a gold lipstick, then use a lip brush dipped in gold glitter and tap it on your lips until they are evenly coated. This can be used for a halloween costume or just a regular day if you’re brave enough.
Doesn’t this just look like gold leaf? It’s almost as if they applied a thin layer of actual gold to their lips. You’ll stop everyone in their tracks if you sport this lip.
