Not only are gold eyeshadows festive and fun for the holidays, but they’re also great to disguise dark circles from last night’s hangover. The yellow tones cancel out greens and purples, while the shimmer camouflages redness and makes your peepers pop. I’m a fan of the stuff year round, but come holiday season, I take license to go full-blown sparkle.
Whether you’re looking for a subtle shimmer or a virtual gold rush, there are a million ways to wear gold on your eyelids. Try it — you’ll like it.
