Summer makeup trend #4: Gold makeup"Not everyone will be able to pull off the golden lip or lash shown at the Rodarte Spring/Summer 2011 runway show, but what everyone can pull off is an ethereal glow," says Kae. For a wearable, summer-proof version of the metallic trend, lightly tap Smashbox Artificial Light Luminizing Lotion, $24 on the high-planes of your cheeks after applying your makeup.
For eyeshadow, the shade of gold depends on your skin tone. If you have pink undertones, use warmer golds. For olive undertones, use yellowy, brighter golds. For brown undertones, use pink golds, and for yellow undertones, opt for dark brown golds.
Melt-Proof Makeup Tip: To keep eye makeup from smudging, take a large eyeshadow brush and dip it into loose powder. Apply the powder just around the edges of your eye makeup to keep it from bleeding, says Rodriguez.
