4 Summer Gold Make-Up Staples

4 Summer Gold Make-Up Staples

Recently I picked up a few new make-up bits in anticipation of some summer rays, and like a lot of girls I love the idea of the summer golden and naturally sun-kissed look! Browsing some of my favourite green beauty websites, I hunted down these gold-copper-shimmer products to add that summer glow which I especially love using with a bronzed tan…

A rich bronze-pink with golden shimmer, Bellápierre seem to have captured summer glow in their Vanilla Pink Super Gloss. It’s a gorgeous shade that reminds me of toasted caramelised almonds and smells of vanilla cupcakes. A staple for the handbag or beach bag, this moisturising lip gloss will make you feel like a golden goddess! To see a swatch of how it looks when worn, check out my other blog post here. It is available to purchase at Amazon and Love Lula.

Lily Lolo Mineral Blush - Cherry BlossomLily Lolo Mineral Blush – Cherry Blossom

This delicious shimmery carmine-free blush from Lily Lolo gives a subtle highlight to the cheek bones with the colour of sun-ripened apricots. Perfect for the ladies that prefer an understated shimmer to show off their summer skin, I very much like this Mineral Blush in Cherry Blossom to bring that glow to the complexion. I like to add a generous amount swept across the cheek bones, temples, bridge of the nose and dusted on the décolletage. Buildable colour means there is little risk of resembling a disco ball!

Lavera Beautiful Mineral Eyeshadow - Golden BeigeLavera Beautiful Mineral Eyeshadow – Golden Beige 02

Goldie glazed eyelids match magically with a complexion that has been out in the sunshine, adding an extra touch of beach-babe vibe and summer goddess in an instant. An easy shadow to swipe on with a little hazelnut eyeliner, I have been enjoying this pretty golden-beige eyeshadow on beautiful bright blue-sky days to catch the sunshine – a colour I think suits both blondes and brunettes. A nice sparkly shadow from Lavera, it is very sheer and seems to work best on top of another eyeshadow to bring it to life. I have been opting for some of the complementary golden-pearl shades in the Lily Lolo Laid Bare palette to add to the intensity of the look. Since purchasing, this eyeshadow has been discontinued however it is still available on Amazon.

Sante Nail Polish Metallic Copper 09Sante Nail Polish – Metallic Copper 09

A true copper-bronze, I have been obsessed with this nail polish whether I’m pale or a little more tanned, it looks so summery! The formulation is brilliant, with no chipping for three days it’s been my go-to nail colour. Usually not a fan of pearl or metallic nail polishes (I always thought they were just what old ladies wore), this one is definitely one you need in your collection this season. I managed to grab this Metallic Copper Sante Nail Polish in the sale at Love Lula and is now out of stock, but they also have the shade Metallic Gold 08 which I may have to purchase too….
