The Best Gold Makeup Products

Whatever the season is, gold makeup can look good on everyone. A universally flattering shade, gold is a classic makeup look that enhances radiance, catching the light to illuminate the complexion in a beautiful way. We’ve picked out our top gold makeup products to create the ultimate golden goddess look.

Illuminating Gold Primers

Begin the makeup look with an illuminating primer which has a radiant satin finish. We love the Shiseido Synchro Skin Illuminator which creates a smooth base with a subtle golden glow. You can also apply it on top of foundation for a sheer highlight.

Gold Eyeshadows

After applying base makeup products, select a gold eye shadow. With options of powder, liquid and cream formulas, you can create a variety of different looks to suit your occasion. For an everyday wash of subtle gold shimmer, we recommend a powder shadow, such as the Illamasqua Powder Eyeshadow in the shade Hoard. If you’re looking for a more intense pigment, opt for a cream or liquid eyeshadow that you can pair with a powder for double intensity.

Gold Highlighter

Gold Highlighter is a highly flattering shade that looks good on all skin tones. Whether you prefer powder, cream or liquid formulas, there’s something for everyone in this luxe edit.

If you’re looking to try a new beauty trend this season, give gold lips a go. The L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Gold Obsession Lipstick in Nude Gold delivers a beautiful metallic finish with the added benefit of Vitamin E to condition the lips.

Gold Brows

Add a touch of gold to your brows with the Pixi Gold Brow Brightener. This tinted brow gel is infused with nourishing ingredients, making it the ultimate 2 in 1 brow product.
