Samantha's Beauty Pick-Go for the Gold

This summer, smoky eyes are taking on a sun-kissed twist. Instead of using dark shadows to create a sexy look this season, use a gold shadow for a sultry daytime or evening look and you will attract all the men. This trend looks perfect on anyone on a date; the key is to finding the right shade for your skin tone. Ebony and olive skin tones are best paired with dark metallics similar to a bronze color while fair skin looks stunning in a light, yellow gold. Use a gold color to line just your bottom lid, highlight your brow bone or on your entire eyelid paired with dark mascara. My favorite is MAC's Goldmine. It stays on all day and night so you won't have to worry about reapplying. The best part is that splurging for this eyeshadow won't make a hole in your pocket. To really brighten your look, rub a little bit on your cheeks and lips to look extra healthy and beautiful especially when you are at the beach frolicking in the sand with a new love interest.
