Want to add some heat to your holiday looks? Try a golden eye. Because of its inherent warmth, gold works great for our skin tones. Metallic shades will make your eyes the focus of your face by brightening them—a cool trick for helping tired eyes look more awake. Want to get gilded?

Here’s one way to light up your lids: Apply an intense gold shadow, like L’Oreal’s Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Eternal Sunshine, all over the lid blending up to the brow bone. Add a bit of dimension with a bronze color applied to the outer corners of your lid. Blend well. Add definition with black pencil eyeliner on the upper and lower lashes and finish with black mascara.

Go for a light lip color, maybe a creamy rose, so that your eyes will really stand out.

Great gold eyeshadows:
