Summer Makeup: Sizzling Summer Eyes

Ahhh Summer! Lounging by the pool, enjoying the cool breeze at the beach, or strolling through downtown Manhattan on a late, humid night!

We are finally getting some warmer weather here in New York and I’ve felt the need to do inventory on all the hot shades I’ll be sporting this Summer!

Although I enjoy a nice healthy pop of color in the warmer weather I definately lean towards bronzes, golds, oranges, and peachy shades as well!

This post is dedicated to all those wonderful shades that shout sun and fun!

When choosing my selections above I was thinking sun and heat! The colors are all perfectly suited to both the sun and the warm weather. Shimmering hues of copper, yellows, golds, bronzes, chocolates, and bronze all put me in the mood for Summer!

What are some of your Summer must have shades?

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I like minty greens like the one in the UD Deluxe palette and sparkling lilac shades like my Jill Stuart shadow in the pot (that jelly-like one).

    Muse, have you ever considered doing a post of what’s in your makeup bag? Some of the other bloggers are doing it and it would be so cool to see yours!

    Gosh, I just love m/u porn. :p
