The holidays may be over, but that doesn't mean the sparkle has to! If making bolder beauty choices is on your list of New Year's resolutions, why not repeat the holi-slay look you you probably sported to parties and family gatherings?

All gold everything is the name of this makeup game, so MUA Danielle Lewis is sharing a foolproof, three step routine for eyeshadow that truly pops.

And if this irridescent pigment doesn't tickle your fancy, feel free to replace with any other vibrant shade; this tip is "one color fits all:" 

Step 1: Apply the gold eyeshadow all over your lid using a dense eyeshadow brush.

available at Sephora | $20 SHOP NOW

Dense brushes pick up more product and are perfect for applying lots of color. Pro-tip: Wet the brush for more pigment pay off! 

Step 2: Blend the gold shadow up towards the crease using a windshield whipper motion. Don't be afraid to add more color here. We want to take the gold from the lid to the brow!

Step 3: Apply more gold eyeshadow to the arch of the eyebrow, then blend with the fluffy brush to soften any harsh edges. Apply mascara, then take this gilded in gold show on the road!
