Nine Gorgeous Golds for Summer!


It is finally that time of year where the perfect temperatures have arrived: 60s and 70s! Actually, it was 80 here yesterday, which is a little too hot for me, but it does have me looking forward to summer and wearing some glowy, luminous, makeup! Before the summer begins, I always look forward to wearing these types of colors, especially gold and bronze. Here are some of my favorites!


Josie Maran Eyeshadow in Mist– This shade is easy to blend and cruelty-free, and it’s a shimmery yellow gold with a tiny hint of peach.

MAC Goldmine Eyeshadow– I love this color! It is a true yellow gold; both warm and cool skin tones could wear this shade. It really brightens the eyes, and makes any color pop!


MAC Goldmine paired with MAC Daydreaming and MAC Parrot

Hard Candy bronzer in Tiki– Check out my full review of Tiki here.

L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in Eternal Sunshine– This color is amazing worn alone or with other colors. It is highly pigmented and blends easily.

Stila Smudge Stick in Koi– This eyeliner is great for precision application and longevity, if you want all day wear.

L’Oreal HIP Flare Duo– One side of the flare duo has a great peachy gold shade; a little more peachy than Mist. These HIP shadows are very pigmented compared to other drugstore shadows.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Shimmering Powder in Champagne– This powder is so finely milled, that this is one shimmer powder you can use all over your face without looking like a disco ball. It has a very subtle white rosy gold sheen.

MAC Blonde’s Gold Pigment– This gold has a brown undertone and is incredibly easy to apply and blend. It makes for a great shimmery neutral! The texture of this pigment is one of the best I’ve used!

Benefit Sunbeam– Sunbeam is the golden bronze sister to the very famous pink highlighter, High Beam. This highlighter will give you a sun-kissed look without having to spend the day outside frying your skin!

It’s really hard to pick a favorite of this bunch, but Tiki, Eternal Sunshine, and Goldmine are definitely up there! Do you have any gold must haves? What colors do you like to wear in the summer?

    That Koi liner is a really pretty colour! I tend to do a golden smokey-ish eye in the summer, especially on holiday – there’s just something about being sparkly and sunny in the warm weather 🙂

    These are all pretty and summery. Might have to look for one

  3. MAC Blonde’s Gold is beautiful! I love MAC Jaunty, but it was LE, so I’m hoarding what I have left. 🙂

    L’Oreal’s “HIP” eye shadows are my favorite “drugstore brand”. I’m having a harder time finding them, though – hope they’re not getting discontinued!!!
