A queen and her gold are never separated. If you are the kind of queen who would rather be over dressed than be caught under dressed for any given occasion, here are some ways you can infuse gold into your daily makeup. We offer some subtle, and some not-so-subtle ways in which you too can rock this royal metallic colour.

Lightly sweep a golden hued eye shadow from the Lakmé 9to5 Eye Quartet – Silk Route palette on your eye lids and dab a little on the inner corners of your eye. Line your upper lash line with Lakmé 9to5 Naturale Gel Kajal in black for an understated, yet sophisticated look.


Take a cue from Priyanka Chopra who has lightly lined her upper and lower lash line with a chunkier golden eye shadow and paired it with deep berry lips for a glamorous look.


Try this edgy look courtesy Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, where you just sweep gold eyeshadow on your entire lid and just below your brow bone, and add a darker eyeshadow into your crease. Line the lower lash line with the same darker eyeshadow for a beautiful golden take on the classic smoky eye.


Use the Lakmé Absolute Shine Line in Liquid Gold for a subtle, shimmery take on the classic black liner.


For a festive or party look, apply a nude lipstick and lightly dab a golden eyeshadow over the lipstick, concentrating on the centre of the upper lip and the centre of the lower lip. This will make your lips look fuller and add a very interesting golden accent to your look.


What is interesting about this look is that the same glittery eye shadow that has been used on the eyes is also used to create drama on the lips. Use a bright red lipstick on your lips and dab the gold eye shadow over the lipstick.


Adding golden accents to your look need not be just to your makeup. There are limitless ways you can gild your nails. Whether you want to add a golden accent nail, or create ombré looks with glittery gold nail colours or just add plain golden lines to give your nails a twist, we hope you get inspired and create your own looks with Lakmé Absolute Gel Stylist (Illuminate) in Gold Glaze.


Add chunky gold glitter on your eyelids and the inner corner of your eye for this festive look that is sure to get you noticed! Line your eyes with a black liner and apply a few coats of mascara, and you are ready to paint the town gold!
