Celebrity Inspiration: 11 Dramatic Gold Beauty Looks That Would Look Perfect at the Ball of Arabia

It’s the season to celebrate, with December offering up a tempting calendar of chic events. As the UAE celebrates its 50th anniversary, this month also marks the long-awaited return of  the second edition of Vogue Arabia’s Ball of Arabia. The second edition of the Ball of Arabia will celebrate the UAE’s Golden Jubilee with a VIP list of the region’s best-known names in fashion, beauty, culture, and art, hosted at Raffles The Palm on December 12. A luxurious red carpet event and celebrity-studded affair, this year’s gold theme calls for a matching golden beauty look.

Be inspired by a full golden lid look completed with gold foiled hair by makeup mogul and Ball of Arabia co-chair Huda Kattan, or opt for a more subtle glowing golden hour look, courtesy of Maya Diab. Ball of Arabia co-chair Mona Zaki was a vision in an exaggerated gold graphic eye look for her January 2021 Vogue Arabia cover story, while Kylie Jenner created a thinner cat-eye filled in with a soft gold pigment for her metallic look. Gigi Hadid knows the power of gold, with the model frequently experimenting with high-impact looks ranging from a golden halo lid, to an eye look devoted to shining gold glitter. Actress Julia Garner took the gilded look one step further, trying an eye-catching golden lipstick for a twist on the rep carpet-ready bold lip. Click through the gallery for these full looks, and more golden ideas from style leaders including Bella Hadid, Beyoncé, Margot Robbie, and Chiara Ferragni.
