If you buy anything this season, make sure it’s gold.
At Prada’s Spring 2016 show, makeup artist Pat McGrath previewed her now famous Gold 001, a gold sparkling powder that made fashion and beauty headlines worldwide for it’s dramatic and cult-like appeal. Images of the gold clad models went viral and it undeniably became one of the most buzzed about moments of the season. McGrath even released her hit product to 1,000 lucky fans, and with no surprise it sold out immediately.
While McGrath may have set the golden bar this season, glitter, sparkles and gilded shades of metallic gold dominated the runways. With the holiday season right around the corner, we have no excuse but to glisten and gleam with or without our very own 001.
And just in time for your first holiday soirée, the golden gods have delivered a bevy of modern and wearable gold products that are not in the least bit tacky. Whether you are inspired by Grace Jones and the disco era, Cleopatra and her gold-leaf eyes, or an ethereal Grecian princess, there is something for you. These are the 7 best golden hits of the season that every editor that I know is talking about.
Forget everything you knew about traditional hair treatments, because this is the ultimate holiday hair product. Its makes your hair super soft, and nourished. It’s perfect if your hair is over styled and processed like me. It’s keratin safe, and is made with watermelon, lychee and even edelweiss flower extracts.
This simple little tool is all your need for a maximum gold impact, with minimal effort. Swipe a bit of gold onto the tips of your lashes for an instant eye-catching, goddess like effect.
This pigmented golden metallic eye shadow is perfectly buildable, delivering the perfect glowing, light-reflective finish. You can wear it over your whole eyelid or simply on the inner corners of your eyes for a hint of gleam. This is the perfect day to night transition product. It’s also made of raw and organic ingredients, so it’s safe for dry or sensitive eyes and regular use.
Whatever Dior puts out there is magic, and this limited edition gold flecked nail color is no exception. This color was made for the holiday season, and features tiny flakes of silver and gold, bold red, intense plum and metallic grey-mauve. No matter your preference, you’re sure to find the color to suit your outfit and your mood.
For a high drama and mega reflective eye look, try Armani’s latest release. It turns from liquid to solid in seconds and stays put all night, so you don’t have to worry about this budging like an eye gloss would. You can use this as an eyeliner or eyeshadow, so it’s pretty versatile.
I love the look of a simple thin line of golden glittery eyeliner without anything else on the eyes, and this is the perfect little tool for this look. One thin line is all you need for a chic and modern look.
