Though gold goes with many kinds of skin tones, you need to be a bit careful while choosing makeup for a golden dress as a simple mistake can break your look that you will not want. To get the perfect base makeup with a gold dress, try to create smooth and even-toned skin. Irrespective of the kind of dress that you wear, it will look best. What you need to concentrate on is how to hide the flaws.
Things like the color of your eyeshade or lipstick will be your next priority. Based on your skin tone, choose a good concealer. To hide dark circles, use a concealer 2 to 3 shades lighter, it will help you to look brighter and younger. For the next stages of makeup, apply a foundation either with a brush or your finger.
When it comes to choosing a makeup look for a gold bridesmaid gown, it is always better to keep your blush subtle. Use a hint of blush only to add a rosy tint to your checks, too much blush can ruin the whole look. If you have a fair or pale complexion, then apply an apricot or peachy blush, on the other side, if you have a darker skin tone, then go for a wine-colored blush.
To draw attention to your cheekbones, add some highlighter on top of the blush. Moreover, you can use a contouring powder on the hollow part of your cheeks to get a slimmer look. Blend well with a big brush.
3. Eyes & Lips
You can put light pale gold on the eyes if you have medium skin complexion. However, you need to choose a champagne colored eye shadow if you got fair skin tone. Now take a pen eyeliner and outline your eyes. You can also extend the eyeliner to get a winged look. Finish your eye makeup by using several coats of the mascara. For lips, always choose a bold shade that will complement the color of your dress.
To get a stunning look, choose a deep red or wine or magenta color that can never fail to grab the limelight. Before using lipstick, never forget to apply a lip liner as it will add more definition to your pout.
