This Makeup Trend Is Going To Be Huge — & It's SO Flattering

Some trends are so wild, unexpected, and flashy that they hit the red carpet like a beauty tidal wave. See: platinum hair or rainbow lipstick. Others are more subtle, gaining steam without causing a ruckus. While tougher to spot, it's these subtler trends that tend to be the most wearable — and Hollywood just gave us fall's biggest one yet: gilded eyes and glossy lips.

In fact, once we started noticed this ultra-flattering pairing last month, we couldn't stop seeing it. It's as if the top makeup artists, whose client rosters include Zendaya, Shay Mitchell, and Gigi Hadid, got together over Labor Day and said, "Let's make this the look for fall."

Not only is it flattering and easy to master, there's really no wrong way to wear it. From metallic bronze to soft copper and electric gold, there's a fresh version from the past month for everyone — each of which is paired with a lip look that ranges from vinyl shine to a soft sheen.

Ahead, 13 of your favorite celebs demonstrate how they're wearing gilded eyes and shiny lips right now — plus product recs to pull off the trend at home.

Hailee Steinfeld

Steinfeld stepped out during the press tour for The Edge of Seventeen with a smudged, shimmery, and all around badass rose gold eye. Keep the rest of the face neutral, with cheeks rooted in shades of rose, to keep the finished look super-polished.

Try: Build out your smoky eye using a palette of neutral browns and golds, then gently pat loose, shimmery pigment over the top of the lid and under the center of the eye using a small, stiff brush.

Try: Any earthy metallic palette will work — but the real trick to this look is nailing the sharp lines. Novices will find it easy when done with a simple strip of tape or an eyeshadow shield as a guide.

Jordyn Woods

Woods made her eyes look wide awake with pale, shimmery gold shadow dabbed in the center of the lid. (She also shows that a vinyl-effect lip gloss is not required — low-shine peach is just as pretty.)
