BeautyLuLu*s How-To: Sunkissed Summer Gold Eyeshadow Tutorial

While a hot bikini, tanning lotion, and a delicious cocktail are definite pool-side must-haves, we have one more summer essential to tack onto your list: gold eyeshadow! When paired with a warm toned shadow, a golden eyeshadow can easily brighten the eyes all while creating a perfectly sunkissed look to complement your summer glow! Follow our steps below to make this look your own!

Sunkissed Summer Gold Eyeshadow

Steps:

1. Create the base using a matte nude colored eyeshadow within the crease of the lid and outer corner.

2. Use a bright, shimmery gold eyeshadow for the perfect sunkissed glow.

3. Apply a matte beige eyeshadow to the brow bone. Blend this color into the base shadow to soften the shape.

4. Carefully line the upper lash line using dark brown eyeshadow. (You can use black liner for a more dramatic look!)

5. Finish by adding a hint of champagne shimmery eyeshadow to the inner corner of the eye to create a pop!

1. Create an even skin tone by applying liquid foundation to cover any dark circles or blemishes.
2. Lightly powder your entire face to set the foundation. Depending upon your preference, you can use either translucent or mineral powder. We chose a mineral powder for a little more coverage.
3. Apply a neutral tone blush to accent your cheek bones.
4. Sweep a nude brown eye-shadow across the lid and concentrate in the crease.
5. Blend a slightly darker brown shadow using a smaller brush and focus from outer corner to center of the crease to define the lid.
6. Use an ivory or white eye-shadow from the inner corner to the center of the lash line to create a pop of brightness and add to the wide-eyed effect.
7. Chose a narrow angle brush and apply cream black liner to the lash line to further define the look. Direct the liner upwards as you near the outer corner.
8. Complete the eyes by adding a few coats of mascara to the upper and lower lashes.
9. Last but not least, apply a candy apple red lipstick.

There! Now you have a simple and fabulous Hollywood Glam makeup look for the holiday season.
