The twinkly lights have been turned on and the red cups are in — it’s officially party season, people. For 2017, the easiest way to show it on your face is with a little gold eyeliner, which Pinterest has seen searches for increase by 722% year-on-year. Major. Call it the Pat McGrath effect or the fact it’s oh-so- ‘grammable, but a gilded flash on one’s eyelids feels both grown-up and genuinely wearable right now. Provided you play it right, of course.
We’ve gathered the most photogenic Pin-spiration to give you ideas for your next party make-up looks that ooze some razzle dazzle.
You’d be forgiven for thinking gold liner top and bottom would be OTT, but here’s proof it works. Go graphic with your wing and soft along the lash lines for a stunning take on the trend.
Black and gold
To make the gold really stand out, simply pair it with black. Rim your lash lines with the metallic shade, alongside black kohl liner applied to the top and bottom waterlines.
For something more experimental, try a gold glitter crease joining a wing. Surprisingly it’s much easier to paint than black, as the lines needn’t be so sharp.
However, if wings still feel too tricksy, try your gold glitter creases alone. Partner with black mascara and a nude lip for a chic minimal party make-up look.
For something slightly more sophisticated – but still achievable – try splitting your flicks in two. This would work better with a more pigmented gold liner as opposed to a sheer glitter version to achieve definition.
If you’re loving the current trend for ‘sunset eyes’, try combining it with some gold liner and a subtle halo of glitter to take on the ‘sunshine eyes’ movement. Fittingly, it’s perfect for after hours.
If you’d rather a subtler take on the trend, simply add some gold to your lower lash lines (before applying your mascara) and the inner corners of the eye for a brightening highlight.
