Spring Beauty Trends 2012: Gold!

One of the trends I'm most excited for, aside from t he natural trend, would be the gold trend! Primarily eyeshadow and highlighters.
This is perfect, and can be school appropriate when toned down,but can also be fun and flirty.
Gold looks gorgeous in the sun, with the light reflecting it, so this trend is the perfect trend for spring and into summer. Here are some options for gold make up as well as some tips!

Gold Eyeshadow:
Mac's Honey Lust
Maybelline Color Tattoo in "Bold Gold"
Maybelline's "Chai Latte" Quad- Crease color

Gold Highlighter:
Benefit's "SunBeam"

Here are some ways to use gold in your makeup
  • You could use the gold eyeshadow three ways: 1. All over the lid and into the tear duct area. 2. In the crease with a champagne color all over the lid. Or 3. On the bottom last line to make the eyes appear brighter.
  • Apply a gold highlighter above your cheekbones as well as a little bit on the apples of your cheeks before you put on blush for a cheeky glow.
  • Try mixing a golden highlighter, like benefit's "sunbeam" with your foundation for a nice, subtle, all over the face glow!
