Yellow & gold makeup is ‘in’ for Spring!

September 21, 2009

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!
