To create a subtle look, so that the focus can be on the on the dress or on the hairdo of the model, the make up artist can may be use a simple dab of gold dust on the upper lid and then blend it in well.

Or sometime it is used only in the inner crease, where it has to be blended outwards from the inner corner of the eyes.
