Thanks to all the festivities on the horizon, this time of year is a golden opportunity to play around with bold makeup looks that you may otherwise shy away from. And it would seem that one glamorous shade in particular is trending to be big this season: gold. So stock up on the latest slew of gold makeup products at Sephora and try the luxe look for yourself for a beauty routine that's, well, as good as gold.
Each time the holiday season comes back around, it tends to have a way of inspiring more adventurous, playful beauty looks. Between the cheerful spirit in the air and all the festive events to attend, there's no better time to have a little extra fun with makeup. And while there's plenty of eye-catching looks to try — like a bright red lip — nothing quite says holiday like a high-impact dose of metallics. Not only that, but what better way to amp up a glowy complexion than with a wash of golden color?
Luckily, Sephora's latest drop of new arrivals seems to agree, because the beauty store's site is brimming with golden goodies that are ideal for creating a glamorous party-ready look. And whether you prefer to get the look by way of a metallic eye, sparkling lips, or an all over gold glow, there's plenty of choices to be had.
To create a goddess-like golden eye look, snag the latest eyeshadow palette from Natasha Denona, aptly named the Gold Eyeshadow Palette. The $129 palette may be a tad pricey, but the 15 shades included promise amazing color payoff and high impact metallic, shimmer, and matte finishes. Try a golden take on a smokey eye by sweeping a deep gold shade on the lid, and working a darker bronze into the crease.
Or, give a classic cat-eye a gilded makeover with Christian Louboutin's new Goldomania Tape A l'Oeil Metallic Eye Color, $50. Replace basic black liner with this intense gold shade for a festive, modern take for holiday parties; it's an unexpected way to incorporate the metallic shade.
If you prefer to put the emphasis on your pout instead, you'll also want to take a look at the latest Louboutin launches at Sephora. Opt for the Goldomania Loubilaque Lip Lacquer, $85, to give your lips a glossy, golden appearance. The lacquer is loaded with a sparkling gold pigment that can be worn alone or layered over a lipstick to provide holiday glamour.
And all in favor of a full-face glow need look no further than the luminous golden highlighters that Sephora's now stocking. Charlotte Tilbury's bestselling Bar of Gold highlighter now comes in two additional shades, a rose gold and a deep bronze gold, and you can get all three in one perfect package. The Bar Of Gold Highlighting Palette, $58, is ideal for sculpting your face with buildable shimmer. For a super-metallic finish, try Marc Jacobs Beauty O!Mega Glaze All-Over Foil Luminizer, $49. The super-pigmented gold highlighter gives you high-impact glow, without the glitter. That way, you look fresh-faced and glam, but not over-the-top sparkly.
No matter the way you choose to wear gold this season, it's guaranteed to give you a glowing and holiday-ready look. Shop a selection of the best new golden picks at Sephora below, and head to the one-stop beauty store's site for even more ways to get your glow on.
