Makeup Monday: Golden Sun








Left to right: Too Faced Shadow Insurance (base), Radiant Cosmetics Goldilocks eyeshadow applied and blended up to brow bone (pssst! Radiant Cosmetics donates a minimum of 20% of their profits to fight Human Trafficking), MAC Brash from Call Me Bubbles quad (bottom right shadow - layered/swept into crease), Urban Decay 24/7 liquid liner in El Dorado (upper lash line), Diorshow Mascara




Left to right: Too Faced Beauty Balm in Vanilla Glow, Too Faced blush in Who's Your Poppy?, MAC Vegas Volt


I added a pop of gold liner to add a little something something to an otherwise subtle, golden peachy look. That hint of metallic really brightens up the eyes. I wore it layered over shadows today,  but I  also love to wear it alone, à la Cinna. It's a simple way to brighten up an ordinary look!

  8. Stunning as ever, especially with the goldenrod yellow sweater.

    Your posts are always inspiring. I included one of your leather posts in this collection of luxury leopard trends for the summer. Thanks for all you do in the fashion community, Keiko!

    I want to give it a try. But I have blue eyes and golden yellow doesn't work for me. Which shades would match blue eyes?

  22. I have to say, this summer has revived my love for yellow, and make it look like and oddly attractive color, even in makeup.

  23. As soon as the temperatures cool down - right now, this makeup would melt off of my face - I'm going to try this look. I'm surprised at how well the pink lips complement the gold eyes. You look fantastic!

  31. Darling Keiko! Your make-up tutorials are the best! I wish I could execute them as effortlessly as you do. What make-up would you recommend for acne prone skin? I'm 30 and my acne has been around for 16 years now and has only become worse with age. Any suggestions? BTW I am riddled with dark spots and pot marks, gosh I hate my skin and face:(

    I would consult your dermatologist before trying out new makeup, but if that's out of the question, I am a fan of YoungBlood Cosmetics for problematic skin. http://www.ybskin.com/
