LOOK: Gold and Bronzey Summer Makeup.

I have a love and hate relationship with summer. I hate being hot and sweaty but I love the fact that I get to wear pretty dresses, skirts, shorts tanks, sandals and bright makeup looks!

 I'm going to do a series of summer makeup looks and this Gold and Bronzey Summer Makeup is my first one. For the eye makeup, I stayed in the tones of gold and browns. I used the eye shadows in my Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland Book of Shadows. I've only used it several times and, I need to give it some more love. For the cheeks I use a capri bronze blush that compliments the eye makeup and for the lips I just used my favorite shimmery light pink nude lip gloss. I hope you guys like it ^_^







 I used all shimmery eye shadows and the shimmers catches the light from the flash of the camera making the colors look washed out. Shimmers are not great for flash photography so mix in some matte eye shadows if you're gonna take pictures.

Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland Book of Shadows. The texture of these eye shadows are very soft and and pigmented. Love it!

Oraculum, Drink Me Eat Me, Mad Hatter and Jabberwocky swiped once.



Don't forget to put sunblock if you're going to be exposed to the sun. I especially love Neutrogena's Ultra Sheer Liquid Daily Sunblock spf 55. It's sheer and it layers invisibly under makeup.

I like to use a refresher though out the day to refresh my face. I love the Mark Mist Opportunity Multi-Tasking refresher. It's really great for summer. It's comparable to Mac's fix+.

  7. i love the bronzy look on your eyes. gold and bronzy shades are indeed the colors of summer. :)

    now that you mentioned the alice in wonderland book of shadows, i haven't used mine in a while. i think since i bought it last march, i used it only twice. i need to use it one of these days. it has such a beautiful array of colors too.

    keep your bangs. they look cute on you. :) any look suits you though. with or without bangs, you are always pretty. :D

    You look good with bangs :)

    I was wondering, how does your neutrogena sunblock smell like? :P I want to use sunblock more but I'm not too fond of the smell of the ones we use for our body ><
