How to Do Gold Makeup

Step 1

Apply your usual makeup base, which may include primer, concealer, foundation and powder. Apply a powder blush that flatters your skin to the apples of your cheeks and brush upward. Blend well with light strokes.

Step 2

Blend the black eye pencil into the upper lashes. Smudge the line gently using an eyeliner brush or a cotton swab. You want a subtle, slightly messy line.

Step 3

Dip your eye shadow blending brush lightly in the deep gold creme eye shadow. Apply it to the lids of your eyes and very lightly under the lower lash line to make a circular shape. Blend outward with your fingertip.

Step 4

Dip the eye shadow brush in the loose gold shimmer powder and tap it on the side of the container to remove the excess. Apply the gold shimmer from the lid up to the eyebrow, focusing on the brow bone. Sweep the gold shimmer under the lower lashes.

Step 5

Apply black mascara to the upper lashes.

Step 6

Use the lip brush to apply the neutral lipstick. Clean the lip brush and use it to apply the shimmery gold lip gloss over the lipstick.

Step 7

Dip the blush brush in the loose gold shimmer powder and tap it over a sink or trash can so only a small amount remains on the brush. Sweep the brush over your cheekbones and up to your temples to finish off the look.
