A new trend has appeared for those who like to be a bit adventurous with their eye makeup, the gold leaf was one that shown on the models at Fendi and is no doubt, one heck of an eye-catcher as well, and the star of today’s Trend Report.
While it definitely brings something we haven’t really seen yet, the shiny appeal doesn’t seem like it would be enough to wear out in public…especially if you go heavy-handed with the gold leaf and cover everything from your lips to above the eyebrows. Though in being models and walking the runway, they can get away with the dramatics.
But there’s still a charm to the look that makes it still intriguing and tempting to find a way to flaunt it but maybe in a more toned-down way. In comes Miss Emma Watson, who is the great inspiration for an alternative way to sport this golden metallic eye.
As you can see, she’s wearing a classic smokey eye (which is gorgeous in itself) that has been brushed with a bit of gold eyeshadow in her inner corners for a look that is very punk chic. But the best finishing touch is the light sprinkle of decorative gold leaf (that you could pick up at any arts and craft store) on the outer corners - an easy way to apply it would be with a few dots of lash adhesive (so you can be sure it will come off easily later).
When done like this, I can’t see why you wouldn’t want to sport this trend. I totally love the playful nature and come on, who can resist gold?
