Daily Beauty Buzz: Kat Graham’s Glittery Gold Eyeshadow
While you were tucked in bed with the Sunday scaries, Kat Graham was on the iHeartRADIO MuchMusic Video Awards red carpet, serving up yet another standout beauty look. The singer gave us a lesson in metallic makeup when she showed up to the red carpet wearing a sultry smoky eye created with glittery gold and neutral shadows.
She complemented the eye look with a slightly glossy nude lip, groomed brows, lengthened lashes, and a sleek low bun with a center part.

File this palette under "blends well with others." The creamy texture works well enough solo, so you don't even need a shadow primer, or can do double-duty as a base tone for the rest of your color spread. Courtesy 1 of 8 Advertisement
