Gold Standard

There are ways, other than garish holiday sweaters, to express your festive spirit. Our favorite? Gold! The universally flattering metallic hue looks as spirited painted along the lash line as it does on your nails--or, in the case of Yohji Yamamoto's F/W 12 show, highlighting a burgundy lip. We've rounded up some of our favorite metallic formulas, from shimmering shadows to glittery nails, to get you holiday-ready.1. NYX Cream Shadow ($5) in Suede
