Gilt-y Looks

Gilded makeup is never out of style, but it’s certainly enjoying a moment right now. From gold flake eyelids to high shine metallic nails, palettes, and even fragrances, the shade has been everywhere lately.
 
And there’s a very good reason gold is such a perennial. It complements almost any other shade (including its primary rival, silver), it warms up every skin tone—even those with cool undertones—and it adds a little bit of drama even the most basic ensemble.
 
Check out all the gilt-inspired goodness below, and then show us how you’d make the look work with a set!
