Let’s be honest – nothing beats the warm summer glow you get during the summer – everyone feels prettier with a little bit of a bronzed, sun-kissed look. And you know what goes well with a sun-kissed summer glow? More glowy-goodness! I’m talking gold. It looks so good against bronzed skin. No big surprise then, that golden bronzed makeup is on trend for the summer months. Metallics in general are big this coming season, but the shimmery gold is what I’ve fallen head over heels for. Its glamorous, its sexy and I can’t wait to bust it out this summer.
You can go big and bold (the gold foiled eyes at Fendi, anyone?) or you can do subtle. You can do bright gold eyes, or you can do a smoky gold eye with deep rich browns and bronzes – like the image here on the bottom. If you want to do gold really subtly, try a gold dusting powder or an gold-toned illuminator on your skin. I think my favorite new idea for wearing gold makeup is the eyeliner in the picture above – a line of gold on top of a line of black.
I’m ready to bronzed, glowing and golden – how about you?
