Gold is one of those colors that’s bright and attention-catching, but not necessarily what you’d call bold.

Megan Thee Stallion pretty much always looks like a million bucks, so it’s fitting that she’d go for such an expensive-looking eyeshadow moment for the VMAs.

If you can’t tear your eyes away from a resplendent, gold-draped Beyoncé, you are not alone. Her matching eyeshadow is thoughtfully subtle, just a wash of pale gold across the lids.

Taylor Swift was already an industry veteran by the time she turned up at the 2012 ACMAs with this deep gold smoky eye.

Leave it to Gen Z icon Naomi Osaka to put her own spin on gold — a metal she’s very, very familiar with thanks to her legendary tennis career. For a Mykonos getaway, Osaka blended a Grecian sky blue with glimmering gold for a two-tone look made for an adventure-packed vacation. @naomiosaka
