A golden shimmering eyeshadow is one of our favourite Summer makeup looks. It is perfect against Summer skin and you can make it work for every occasion. We're sharing our tips on how to wear it, with the best shadows out there for getting the look.
Soft and Subtle
For an everyday touch of gold, go for soft, pale shimmering shades. Use them mainly on the inner corner of the eye as a highlight and it opens up the eyes.
This is our favourite daytime look, with a slick of eyeliner and mascara for a clean and fresh finish.

Sultry and Deep
Switching out browns and blacks for rich golds and coppers makes an incredible evening look for a Summer night out.
Choose palettes with warm tones and a mix of shades to blend out. Make sure to apply the gold in the centre of your lid to catch the light and widen the eyes.

Bold and Glittery
If you have a special occasion where you want to try something different, a gold glitter eye can look incredible. From rich, glimmering eyeliner to intense metallic shadows, this is one for making a statement.
To keep it from looking like too much, pair with nude lips and a flawlessly dewy base. It will let your eye makeup stand out.
