Shine Bright and Get ‘Em With the Gold!

There’s nothing quite like gold against brown skin, is it? This precious metal plays up our skin and makes us glow. If you’re looking for ways to stand out at holiday gatherings through the remainder of the season, don’t sleep on gold–whether it’s with makeup, clothes, or both!

Here’s a few of my favorite go-to golds:

Josie Maran Argan Enlightenment Illuminizing Wand $28


I love how everything in this product line is infused with good-for-your-skin ingredients with argan oil as the cornerstone. Champagne highlighter works well, even on the darkest of skin tones. I like to apply this above my cheekbones and under-eye area before I add foundation or powder.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Waterproof Creme Color, HONEY $18

Brows may have made Anastasia Beverly Hills famous, but they don’t stop with that–the company  comes out with cutting-edge shadows and and lip glosses that regularly sell out at Sephora. Check out this highly pigmented cream eyeshadow–and picture every guy in the room with his eyes on yours.

Mally Illuminating Body Shine $10.50


I love applying this moisturizing luminizer to any part of my body that showing to add a subtle sheen of gold. It glides on easily and makes your skin look super moist and hydrated.

Salley Hansen Miracle Gel, GAME OF CHROMES $9.99



Wear this and you won’t ever have to worry about chipping your polish for a few days. It’s not as durable and long lasting on the hands as the company suggests, but it DOES last significantly longer than most.
