This spring, your tried-and-true smoky eye is getting a heavy metal twist! Gilded accents were hot all over the spring runways, with the pretty peepers at Gucci and Jason Wu ranking at the top as our favorite (and most wearable!) looks. "Gold is the new neutral, and it's more interesting and has more life than beige or taupe," says InStyle beauty director Kahlana Barfield in the above video. The metallic eye couldn't be easier to master at home -- all you need to recreate it is your favorite 24-Karat shadow, a brown liner pencil, a rich bronze hue, and a soft blending brush. "I think a gold smoky eye is far more interesting than a traditional black or grey smoky eye, and it's a great neutral, so anyone can pull it off," she adds.
