6. Jaguar cut-crease eyeshadow

Bored of the classical gold eyeshadow look? Be original and recreate this leopard-inspired gold eyeshadow look. You’ll need a steady hand for all the detail, but with a little practice, you can ace this look!

To give the eyes more depth, apply a darker shade on the outer eye and top it off with gold eyeliner on the cut crease.

7. Intense Glitter Shadow

Get this pop of glitter gold eyeshadow and combine it with a rich pink lip for a fabulous vintage look. Use some brown eyeliner on the lash line and crease line to complete the look.

8. Bronze-gold eyeshadow

Mixing gold with its neighbouring bronze color, creates this beautiful soft kaleidoscope effect. The bronze makes the gold pop and it shows how combining colors correctly can give stunning results!

Wear this eyeshadow for a party or wedding, it’s a look you can’t go wrong with!

9. Gradient golden eyes

Use warm tones to create this golden brown gradient. The lovely thing about gold eyeshadow is that you can warm it up with warm shades like brown and cool it down with cool shades like black.

For the best eyeshadow results, always match the tone of your eyeshadow to the tone of your skin. Darker and golden skin needs warm shades and lighter skin needs cooler ones.

10. Smoke with a hint of green

Gold and green eyeshadow make the perfect color combo since they’re next to each other on the color wheel and complement each other to a T!

To recreate this look, use a dark green shade on the outer corner to create the smokiness and bright yellow gold in the centre to create that pop!

11. Muted lines

Although it takes a steady hand and some skill to apply eyeliner, the beauty of it is that the looks you can create are endless and it’s easy to be original with your lines!

12. Yellow & blue smoke

For a bold pop of color, pair yellow with a bright blue, the contrast is stunning! Add some graphic liner to separate the golden eyeshadow from the yellow and blue on the outer lid.

My Thoughts

Applying eyeshadow can take some skill, but often you can get away with a swipe of color and you’ll have beautiful eyes. These gold eyeshadow looks have something for everyone and every level.

Play around with each look and customize it to your own needs for a personal touch! And don’t forget the main thing is to have fun:) Check out these silver eyeshadow looks for more eyeshadow inspo!
