Using gold to highlight your eyes

February 13th, 2012 | Contributed by:

Gold makes a great highlight for your eyes!You're probably familiar with the highlighting trick that defines the inner corners of your eyes. Basically, you use a product like Jane Iredale – Eye Highlighter Pencil to create a small "V" shape at the inner corners, which helps brighten your face and make your eyes look wider and further apart. It's a technique many women have been using for a while.

However, The Beauty Department has taken this trick one step further by using gold shimmer to get the same effect. It's an unexpected pop of color that adds a certain elegance and sophistication to any look. You just have to make certain that the gold is the lightest shade you're using for your eye makeup.

Apply a gold shade of Youngblood – Crushed Mineral Eyeshadow to the inner corners of your eyes after you've put on eyeliner and eyeshadow, but before you finish up with mascara. This will ensure that your lashes don't get any gold on them.

You could take it a step further by using the gold shade on your brow bones as a highlight. Even a bit placed on your cheekbones could give you a subtle glow.
