Ideal for: Going to any party.
How to style: All you have to do is coat black eyeshadow on the inner and outer corners of your eye while using a neutral brown as a transition shade on your crease. You can fill the gap in the middle, between the black eyeshadows, with a nice golden eyeshadow. Voila, you will get a perfect black and golden eye makeup look.
2. Black Cut Crease
This black and gold eye makeup look is a great look for formal events since it looks sophisticated as well.
Ideal for: Black-tie events.
How to style: Using brown and black eyeshadow create a smooth transition and then a nice black base eyeshadow. Then, using a concealer, cut across your eyelid creating a cut crease. Pat down bright golden eyeshadow over the concealer and finish the look off with a nice black winged eyeliner!

The black and gold smoky eye makeup is a wildly popular party look.
Ideal for: Night-time weddings, black-tie events or formal dinners.
