Happy Top 10 Tuesday! Today I’ve got my top 10 favorite silver and gold makeup items for you.
This wound up being much harder than I anticipated but not for a reason I ever would have guessed. You see, up until maybe 5 or 6 years ago I didn’t like the color gold. I didn’t like gold clothing, jewelry, makeup, nail polish or even hardware accents on purses or jackets. I was 100% silver or nothing. But since I started blogging and have tried out so many amazing gold items, things have changed a bit. I actually don’t really like silver nail polish or eye shadow anywhere near as much as gold now! Plus certain shades of gold make my deep blue/grey eyes pop, so that helps. Luckily I can wear most any silver or gold shades because my skin tone is fairly neutral, so that’s great. And now that we have all these rose gold things, I am even more in love with the color!
NYX Glitzy Gold is just incredibly creamy, smooth, metallic and pigmented. Fab!
Urban Decay Cuff is a perfect, strong metallic silver.
NARS Etrusque is an old antiqued gold shade that has long been a favorite of mine. No primer here!
Makeup Geek Liquid Gold. No primer. I mean do I even need to say anything else?
Estee Lauder Heat Wave is so, so pretty as a highlighter. This is one of my go-to highlighters.
OPI My Signature is “DC” is such a great, opaque silver.
Illamasqua Swinger is definitely one of my all-time favorite gold nail shades. I love a cool-toned gold!
NARS Desperado is really weird and really cool. It’s more of a greenish-antiqued bronze/gold, but I still call it a gold. Old photo sorry!
NARS Venomous (the silver one, obviously) is an extremely pigmented shade. You basically only need one coat.
butter LONDON Champers is an excellent rose gold nail shade. Perfect formula, gorgeous shade.
