What’s ‘in’ for sring when it comes to makeup? Maria Gabriel Ertas from The Makeup Store says warm tones are the way to go. This means colours that have more of a yellow/gold influence. With the sun’s reflection, it will give you the most amazing results. So here’s how to achieve the look for…


Use a gold eyeliner along the inner rim of your eyes to make your eyes really pop! The thing I really love about gold is that its suits all eye colours and skin tones (try our eyeliner – czar). You may also run the eyeliner along your top lashline or just on the bottom inner corner to really open your eyes up.

Hot on SS09 catwalks was the combo – go for either eyes and cheeks or eyes and lips – eyes, lips and cheeks is just not hot right now or too overdone is just not the look for SS09 as seen in full force at Louis Vuitton.


You can use a pastel orange on the apple of the cheeks for a fresh look try Make Up Store blush – “lush”. Team it up with a soft peachy/gold eyedust to add a subtle highlight along your cheek bones try MUS eyedust “morning breeze”, $30. With this look, tone down the lips with a warm nude gloss with gold reflection go wild with Make Up Store Gloss Lips in “aura”.


Use a gossy pastel orange on the lips to compliment the gold eyes – MUS Lipstick in “prairie”, $34. Add a hint of peachy/gold eyedust through the middle of your lips for an edge and fuller looking shimmery lips, great for this is MUS eyedust – “morning breeze”.

With this look, keep the apple of the cheeks bare, you can add a very soft application of a gold influenced bronzer two shades darker than your skintone. Apply it softly under the cheekbones for a very mild contour with MUS Bronzer – “sun” or “tan”, $40, – making you look instantly glowing and high summer fabulous!
