When it comes to summer makeup, I have been searching for everything golden and bronze hued! I am all about natural and subtle beauty looks, so when I came across these products I loved them because not only do they add a natural glow to everyday makeup, but they radiate gold!
The first product I want to talk about is the Laura Mercier Face Illuminator in shade “Addiction.” Isn’t this product beautiful? Not only does the packaging and the appearance of the product itself incapsulate, but the quality is amazing! When it comes to golden highlights, it is important to note your personal skin tone, because there are always a range of gold colors, and if you are a darker skin tone, this highlighter could be lighter on your skin than one with a more deep gold color! What I love about this product is the high level of pigment, the minimal fallout, and the buttery consistency of the highlighter. One of my pet peeves is wearing a chalkier highlight because I believe it highlights my pores and imperfections. This highlighter works really well on the skin, and is easily blendable! I would highly suggest this product if you are into a natural “glowing from within” appearance- it is perfect for summer! (Swatch of the product is on the far left.)
In addition, when it comes to eyeshadow, I absolutely love my shimmer shades. I never feel complete without light shimmers overtop of my eyemakeup look! As a result, I am loving my new Nars Duo Eyeshadow in the shade “Alhambra.” What I love about this product is the shades of the two eyeshadows; one is a champagne gold color, while the other almost resembles a light rose gold! They are so versatile! Alongside the colors, the high level of pigment and the thick and smooth consistency of the product sealed the deal for me! The swatches are the middle and far right swatch, and I only dipped into the product one time, which just shows the quality without further description! I would highly suggest this product if you adore shimmers!
Finally, I was headed to the checkout line and I stumbled upon the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipsticks, and I noticed they were only $20.00 each. This is a great price point compared to the average competitor when it comes to liquid lipsticks! Hence, I had to try one out for myself! I took a short minute to swatch a few, and decided on a deep red called “Trophy Wife,” but last minute, I ran back over to the shelf and traded the color out for shade “Bombshell.” Best. Decision. Ever. Luckily, I stumbled upon my perfect nude- this color perfectly highlights the exact color of my natural lips! I am in love with this product! Not only do I love the color, but if the heavy and thick average liquid lipstick bothers you, Huda Beauty is for you! The product feels light weight and hydrating, while also having an opaque finish. I know I will be adding more Huda Beauty to my collection soon!
