Who doesn’t love a touch of gold? Whether it’s a flash of metal on the lids or a fully-gilded pout, 24-karat magic is best enjoyed during the holidays. Oh, and it looks super-flattering, too! In need of some inspo? See 5 stars wearing gold makeup below, and tell us you won’t be doing the same this season.

#1: STUNNING YET SUBTLE

Yassi Pressman proves that gold can be gorgeous without being overbearing. Just dust on a shimmery gold highlighter over the high points of your face. Then, finish it off with sheer, gold lipstick atop your fave nude for a complete look! Perfect for a traditional gathering with family and friends. (And even a Christmas Eve ceremony, if you really wanted to.)

GOLD LOOK #2: SUN-KISSED & GLOWING

Spending your holiday vacay by the beach? Pair your sun-kissed glow with a touch of warm-toned gold shades à la Maja Salvador. Think: a peachy-gold shimmer with a coral-orange tint. It’ll look festive, yet natural enough for the sun and sea. Swipe these on and you’ll look good enough to top any Christmas tree!

GOLD LOOK #3: SWEET & LOVELY

Go the extra mile on romantic nights out with hints of rose-gold hues. Make like Anne Curtis and blend it onto your eyes and cheeks for a sweet, shimmery twist. Finish it off with a berry lip and you’ll be sure to wow your date.

GOLD LOOK #4: SOFT & GLAM

Once the parties start rolling in, go for a look that’ll make you the star of the show. Spice up a typical, smoky eye by patting on a silky gold just like Solenn Heussaff. And with a pop of pink on the lips, this look is practically begging for a good time.

GOLD LOOK #5: STRIKING & FIERCE

Walk into the new year like you want to own it. Allow the stunning Pia Wurtzbach to show you how it’s done. Just layer on a knockout, bronze-gold eye with a statement red lip. As a classic holiday look, this is a foolproof way to look good but feel great, too. And if you’re feeling extra confident, you might get a NY kiss, too!
