Face Of The Day: Golden Girl

By Dana Fox

My warm weather makeup routine has consisted of lots of gold lately. I just think that gold is so pretty in the summertime and adds a bit of a sparkle to your eyes.

I’ve been using the Urban Decay gold shadow in Half Baked which is by far one of my favourite gold tones. It has such an awesome texture and look… almost like gold foil… and goes on nice and saturated. I have yet to find another that matches my love for it.  I apply a matte brown in the crease and on the outer V, as well as half way across the under-eye area to bring it all together. So far this has been my go-to look this month… I hope you like it too!

    This is so pretty, I love metallics in the summer. Nicely played-down smokiness, but still very sexy!

    i LOVE LOVE LOVE GOLD EYESHADOW! You can do so many things with it, like add it to lip gloss for a hint of shimmer or the tops of your cheekbones to highlight! Awesome choice.

    I adore gold eyeshadow. I normally mix it in with some other colors – but I think I’m going to have to try this simpler approach soon!

    Wow. I really, really like this. I used to wear gold a lot, but I haven’t been for some reason. It’s really a perfect shade to wear for summer, when you want to look like you’re “glowing.” … I just need to figured out how to put on eyeliner. I’m 26 years old and still don’t know how to do that, damn it, haha.
