Summer Glam | Bold Gold Eyes and Glossy Red Lips

I felt inspired to reach for some gold eye shadow the other day and film a summer-friendly makeup look! I ended up smoking it out and pairing it with a bright red lip shade and an overall bronzed complexion. I really like how it turned out, and the best part is that this makeup really lasts even in the most intense heat and humidity. I think priming, setting with a powder and then spritzing a finishing spray really make a difference when it comes to ensuring your makeup stays put in the summertime.
