What’s hot right now: Gold eye shadow!

How about adding a little glamour to your beauty routine, by adding a touch of gold to your eyes!

Stars are loving the new look, including Emily Blunt, Amber Heard, Rihanna, and Kate Mara.

Gold warms up all skin tones, and can be worn in so many ways!

Blunt and Mara kept their looks subtle, pairing antique gold shadow with a natural lip. Heard channeled her inner pin-up girl, with pale platinum eye makeup, strong brows, and a crimson pout, while Rihanna went for a 24-karat bronze goddess effect. The gilded age of shadows isn’t limited to just one hue. Get flirty with a warm rose gold, or line your eyes with a sultry weathered shade. Be sure to use an eye primer to give your solid gold look extra staying power. A shade this rich should last all day long!

Here are some of our favorite gold shadows!
