Golden Girl: A Valentino-inspired summer makeup look

March 9th, 2011

Summer makeup look 2011

Gold made a sparkling comeback in the S/S 11 catwalk shows. I loved the Valentino and Bottega Veneta looks in particular. The models flaunted dewy skin, gilded eyes, and soft pink lips and cheeks. If you dare to be different, rock it like Rodarte! They made a statement by pairing gold eyeshadow with metallic lipstick.
