Beauty How-To: Gold Eyes for Prom

Prom is right around the corner. You’ve got your dress, but how are you going to do your makeup?  My best friend, Kenya, is a great makeup artist, and she volunteered to show you how to do a glam gold eye that’s perfect for prom.

Step 1: Prime eyelid with Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow Primer


Step 2: Apply a dark brown shadow (Urban Decay’s “Darkhorse is a great choice) on the outer corner of the eyelid and in the crease of the lid, blend thoroughly.


Step 3: Place gold glitter (Bobbi Brown Shimmer Wash Eyeshadow Beige ) is a great choice to complete this look.) on the inner part of the eye and the center.


Step 4: Apply mascara to your own eyelashes, or apply false lashes for volume.


Step 5: Look GOLDEN!


Even if you’re not attending prom, this look is perfect for any future event that requires a touch of subtle glamor. Hope you like it!
