This Lunar New Year, gold isn’t just an auspicious colour – it’s also super on-trend. While the rich hue is versatile enough to be used on the eyes, lips, cheeks and body, we’re particularly fond of using it on our lids.
A wash of golden eyeshadow is perfect for a full day of visiting at Lunar New Year. It’s subtle enough for reunion lunch or dinner and sexy enough for a night out with your friends. Paler girls should opt for brighter, cooler toned shadows while warm, olive-gold shades are better suited to deeper skin tones.
Use a fluffy brush to swipe on a light wash of gold eyeshadow and build up intensity as desired. Keep the look modern by skipping eyeliner and emphasising lashes with a few coats of mascara. Here are some gold eyeshadows you can pair with a nude or red lip depending on your mood.
