For an outstanding girls' night out you need a sexy and comfy outfit, a pretty manicure and of course, a glamorous makeup look! Check out these gorgeous look ideas that incorporate the most quintessential glam shade of all time: gold!
All of these are easy to recreate and will look awesome on any skin complexion and eye color because gold is a neutral shade and goes with everything! Enjoy these look ideas for your next night out.
CHAMPAGNE OR WHITE GOLD:
Champagne, white gold or a shimmery warm sand palette is the easiest way to get the classic glam makeup look. With just one swipe, you're left with soft and velvety lids. This look is perfect if you're looking to add a poppin' statement lip or are going for a soft glowy look.
Intensify white gold or champagne lids by applying the shadow wet for a metallic effect. Pair with warm toned gold shadow and a dramatic smokey and paint the town red!
Soft and delicate rose gold eyeshadow is one of those charming makeup trends which never goes out of fashion. All you need to recreate this beautiful, glowing makeup is to apply matte rosy eyeshadow on your crease, add a little bit of shimmering gold eyeshadow on the eyelids and softly blend the transition between the colors. Viola, an easy and effortless way to add a bit of color and sparkle to your look!
Go for an antique gold eye makeup look with a tarnished feel if you're not digging the intense yellow gold look. The gold shade will have more of a grunge, sage or olive undertone which pairs well with brown, burgundy, bronze and coppery shades for wearable earthy vibes.
If you're a bit hesitant with incorporating gold into your look, the easiest and quickest way to do so would be with a gold accent. The fun part is you can really get creative here and add your own personal touch by thinking outside of the box. Gold foil, rhinestones and glitter are a few fun elements to add to any look.
Probably the most easiest and grown up way to add an accent is with metallic or glitter eyeliner. It's foolproof, not messy and adds just the right amount of shine. Add to your crease for a faux cut crease look, to the upper lashline, bottom lashline or layer adjacent to your normal liner - so many ways to wear this fun look.
For the days you're going for a more subtle eye look or aren't just digging so much drama, try metallic or glitter liner. It adds an unexpected twist to your eye makeup and with a bit of black mascara, highlighter on the cheeks and a nude lipstick, you'll get a very pretty yet minimal party makeup look. Or just add to your already glam look to amp up the drama.
For full on glam, go with gilded gold lids. This classic style is versatile and there's so many different ways of rocking this look. The key to a gorgeous gilded lid, is the crease or transition shade. Make sure it's a nice opaque matte shade which will add the right amount of contour to your lids which is needed especially in flash photography so your lids don't get completely washed out.
Try dark, deep and aged golden shades for a different take on the classic gold. These colors look especially beautiful on deep brown and amber eyes. Pick colors that complement each other and your beautiful eye color. Remember, blending is key to a gorgeous gilded look.
As always, amp up your look with a sexy smokey, falsies and winged liner - which are always a good thing especially when you're in party mode.
Metallic, foiled and duochrome are the next level ways to take your gilded lids up a notch. They really add that high impact shine and glow for incredible glam factor.
Try layering different textures, colors and playing around with different finishes to create a look that suits your style. Metallics and duochrome are so extra and OTT and are essential to create that stunning evening look.
BLACK AND GOLD // SMOKEY GOLD:
The most sexiest and striking ways to rock gold is in combination with a smokey eye. An intense smoldering smokey eye is hot AF and when combined with metallic gold - you've got the quintessential party all night vibes look.
Smokey eyes are one of the best makeup options for a night out. They are definitely a bit dramatic and one of the more complicated looks to create, but once you've mastered the look, it's definitely worth the extra effort.
Add a bit of golden shimmer to the center of the lids to upgrade your classy smokey to a standout halo. With unusual graphic eyeliner, you can take this makeup to next level!
If you're not in the mood to play with eyeshadows and eyeliner, then you definitely need to complete your makeup with glamorous gold lips.
Get The Look:
Begin with a black lip base. The dark base will intensify the shade that is layered on top. Layer a metallic gold pigment on top of the black base. Metallic is the way to go if you're not a fan of chunky glitter but love the shine. For a nice highlight, add a lighter gold shade to the center of the lips. Complete the look with a transparent lip gloss which will really add dimension and shine!
If you're really in party mode, try glitter lips! Just make sure the glitter is cosmetic grade (finely milled is the way to go) and that you've applied a glitter primer to prep your lips. Lock it all in with a clear lip gloss.
If you love the look of glitter but DIY lips aren't your thing, lip toppers are your new BFF! You'll get multifaceted dimension and shine without the hassle or mess of pigments and glitter.
Unleash your inner artist and layer rhinestones and one-of-a-kind pieces (that are easily available at your local craft store) for an editorial vibes look! Disclaimer, this look might require drinking out of straw, though.
GLAMOROUS NAIL ART:
Don't hesitate to add some golden glam to your manicure. You can use golden flakes, rhinestones, crystals and more to your nails, just don't forget to seal them in with a good transparent top coat.
We hope this gave you some party centric look ideas to try for your next night out.
