How to Wear Gold Leaf | Makeup, Nails, Body Art & Faux Jewelry

Gold Leaf accents are not just for your home anymore! While artists and crafters alike have been applying gold leaf to anything they can get their hands on for decades and maybe even centuries, it was Fendi’s Spring 2012 Ready to Wear runway collection and show that sparked the Gold Leaf Makeup trend.

Since then, this shiny gilded gold leafing has popped up everywhere in beauty and fashion in the form of body art, as temporary tattoos and faux jewelry, makeup, and pretty nail art, and I’ve found a few really great affordable options for sale and DIY tutorials to create this look for yourself. Let’s get creative!
