Summer Shades

19 Jul

You may notice that during the summer you keep reaching for certain shades.  Some colors just seem much more summer appropriate than others. Here are some of our summer favorites.


Woodwinked by MAC:


Woodwinked is one of my favorite MAC shades ever. EVER. It is a nice warm gold with brown tinges to it. It’s a great shadow to sweep on the lid and go. I love wearing this one in the summer.

Bronze by MAC:

The name of this shadow, Bronze, describes it perfectly. I love pairing this color with a bright gold shadow, like the one mentioned below. Of course pairing it with gold, makes it an amazing summer combination.

Half Baked by Urban Decay:

I love wearing gold shades in the summer. Gold just screams summer to me. Half Baked is one of my favorite colors. It’s easy to make it look like a light sweep of gold or a very intense gold. This shade blends nicely, and pairs easily with other colors.


Sin by Urban Decay:

I like light shimmery colors all over the lid during the summer months. This is definitely a perfect example of that. And it’s also great to use from lid to brow with a matte light gray or medium brown in the crease to dress it up in case you want to party and party and pa-and-pa-and-party.

Erotica and Silk Teddy by Too Faced:

It’s no secret that I love me some Too Faced palettes. Unfortunately, none of these colors are sold as singles, and only a few come as duos. Silk Teddy is a super shimmery peach that works well with browns or greens or purples or whatever fun color you want to line your eyes with. This is so shimmery that I like to pair it with a matte color in the crease or under my brows, or just alone with a bit of liner.

What colors are you wearing a lot this summer?
