The Secret to Lupita's Metallic Gold Eye Shadow

There was an array of stunning beauty looks last night at Glamour’s Women of the Year Awards, but Lupita Nyongo’s festive, sparkly gold and bronze eye makeup tops our list.  The metallic, shimmery sand and bronze shades from Lancôme’s Colour Design 5 Pan Eye Shadow Palette ($50) in Kissed by Gold popped against her skin and gave her eyes a goddess-y glow. We got the inside scoop from her makeup artist, Nick Barose, who told us his secret for intensifying any metallic colour: wetting the eye shadow brush. “[The palette] is one of Lupita’s favourite go-to eye shadows, but I made it more dramatic tonight by using it wet, with a damp brush, so it looks extra metallic,” he spills. Genius! He finished off the look with Lancôme’s L’Absolu Rouge ($30) in Jezebel, a shimmery, bronzed-berry shade. The perfect holiday makeup inspiration, no?
