Allure Backstage Spring 2008 – Gold Shadow. Bronzy-gold lids tempered with rich brown shadows add a glamorous touch to neutral makeup. At many of the shows makeup artists used shadows that were a bright yellowy gold or slightly bronzed. Gold really looks best at night and it can edge into day if it’s a little toned down and not too sparkly, but it’s a really great look for night and if you temper it with a little brown it’s fantastic.
At Versace Pat McGrath used a combination of bronzed gold and a little brown and the result was very sunny woman, very Versace it looked a little bit like Donatella and she called the makeup blonde of course, “The look is very luminescent – I want to see a girl who has light in her face”.
