What’s hot right now: Gold eye shadow!

How about adding a little glamour to your beauty routine, by adding a touch of gold to your eyes!

Stars are loving the new look, including Emily Blunt, Amber Heard, Rihanna, and Kate Mara.

Gold warms up all skin tones, and can be worn in so many ways!

Blunt and Mara kept their looks subtle, pairing antique gold shadow with a natural lip. Heard channeled her inner pin-up girl, with pale platinum eye makeup, strong brows, and a crimson pout, while Rihanna went for a 24-karat bronze goddess effect. The gilded age of shadows isn’t limited to just one hue. Get flirty with a warm rose gold, or line your eyes with a sultry weathered shade. Be sure to use an eye primer to give your solid gold look extra staying power. A shade this rich should last all day long!

Here are some of our favorite gold shadows!

Loving Stila’s “In The Light” Palette!

So I went into Ulta the other day with only one thing to purchase. Fekkai’s glossing cream. After grabbing it, I stopped by Stila’s makeup – just for a look! Of course, I end up grabbing Stila’s new ‘In The Light’ palette – it could not be helped! They’re all my favorite colors – in one palette! This palette is one of 3 beautiful collections. There’s In The Garden, In The Moment and mine (above) In The Light. Each palette contains 10 eye shadow shades. My palette contains the best-selling shade Kitten, and a limited edition Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner.

The new In The Light Palette is a beautiful collection of Stila’s award-winning Eye Shadows in wearable, neutral shades for every skintone that can be worn wet or dry. The palette also includes an exclusive Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in Damsel, a matte chocolate brown, and an eight-page lookbook with detailed how-to tips and tricks.

I love the lookbook that comes with this palette. It gives soooooo many awesome how-to ideas for your eye shadow. Bottom line – this palette does not disappoint!! You can own it by clicking the link above! $39 for 10 shadows is a steal!
