{beauty board} the sunkissed series...

From nails and lips to eyes and skin you'll find everything you need to sunkiss your life for summer and beyond right here!

The eyes are the windows to the soul... and one of the simplest ways to sun-kiss your face. Sweep a gold, bronze, or copper shadow all over the lid to prettify your peepers and add a sunny sparkle. Can't decide on which shade to go for? Go from dark to light for one supremely summery #eotd {copper all over the lid and in the crease, bronze along the upper lashline, and gold in the inner corner and on the lower lashline}. Here are 5 options for this uber-metallic {and mesmerizing} makeup look!

A glistening pout is only a swipe of gold-flecked gloss away! Capture a true ray of light on your lips with a soft coral, peach, or pink hue for a your-lips-but-better look that's enhanced in the most summery of ways with gold shimmering particles. Already have a favorite lip color you plan on rocking for the sizzling months? Pick up a gold gloss in a clear base that can be applied over it for a seriously summery smooch!

A bronze, golden glow is an #fotd must once the temps rise, but doesn't mean you need to slather yourself in self-tanner. The question is: how sunkissed do you want to go? For all-over healthy color, opt for a bronzing primer or bb / cc cream applied under foundation or alone for a subtle golden goddess glow. For sunkiss with a kick {read: total beach babe}, apply a bronzing powder to temple, cheekbones, and chin {the places the sun would naturally hit}. Good to glow!

I don't know why I've never done gold nails, but they look so pretty! I'll definitely have to try those out. The colors with a little sparkly are so fun, yet still so classy.

Bronze and gold eyeshadows are my day-to-day go to. Love them in the summer especially when you can see the shimmer.
