Celeb Look: Gilded Eyes

Nothing says "sexy" like a traditional smoky eye, but for a modern twist use metallic gold shadows to achieve a look that's less edgy and more ethereal. Instead of charcoals, grays, and blacks, use creamy vanillas and burnished golds to achieve this look. To balance your stunning eye makeup, keep the rest of your face muted. Flawless foundation, peachy cheeks, and light pink glossy lips equal a look that's perfect for dates, special events, or get-togethers with your girls.

Get Nicole Richie's look:
1. Apply a metallic or shimmery vanilla shimmer from your lashlines to browbones, making sure to dust some on your inner corner.
2. Use a brush and apply a metallic gold over your entire lid, layering over the vanilla.
3. Take a darker gold and blend it into your creases and outer corners.
4. Take an eyeliner brush and dip in into the dark gold color. Sweep this under your lower lashline.
5. Take black liquid liner and line only your upper lashline, making sure to keep the line very thin (so that it blends in with your lashes).
6. Curl lashes and apply two coats of carbon black mascara.
7. Clean up any shadow fallout with a moisturizer. Apply tinted moisturizer, concealor, and/or foundation as usual.
8. Smile and dust a peachy blush into the apples of your cheeks.
9. Pucker up and apply a light pink gloss!
10. For laidback cool, pull your hair into a loose ponytail or messy bun. Pull out a bunch of face-framing strands and scrunch with some hair spray.
