Gold eyeshadow flatters any skin tone and goes beyond just being a spring beauty trend. It can be soft, dramatic and accentuate the eyes. Creating a gold eye is a practice in blending. Start with a deeper shade of eyeshadow and blend into a seamless base. Next, go in with your gold shade, layering and blending for a wash of gold. After curling your lashesline your eyes with our brown Black Magic: Cocoa Edit Pencil Eyeliner then coat lashes with Black Magic: Cocoa Edit Mascara: the perfect accompaniment to golden eye makeup.
