     every year as summer approaches, i start to love everything rose gold again, especially anything beauty related. sun kissed skin and rose gold makeup is the most beautiful combination. my go-to makeup look this summer will be mostly rose gold with a hint of pink, with some new and old product faves. i’ve listed what i’m using below to get this bronzy pink look.

on my eyes:

i’m wearing this new tom ford eyeshadow duo in color paradiso. it’s literally amazing. i had bought it in naked bronze in january and loved the cream to powder formula so much that i bought it in paradiso. i’m obsessed with it. it’s so pretty and the perfect pink with a hint of metallic which ends up being a rosey gold. it’s a cream base that is gorgeous on it’s own but then you can add a metallic powder on top for a dramatic look. this eyeshadow is on the pricier side, BUT it’s totally worth it and i think i’ll get it in the color sun worship next. also, tom ford packaging is just beautiful as per usual which is always an added bonus

on my cheeks: 

i use the loreal true match lumi liquid illuminator in color rose on the tops of my cheeks. it’s a true rose gold color and the formula is a sheer shimmer as opposed to some which have flaky sparkles which is a big no no. i highly recommend it for all skin types.

on my lips:

ysl rouge volupte lipstick in lingerie pink paired with the ysl gloss volupte in nude carat. this is an amazing combo. i love them both on their own or with other products as well, but paired together leaves you with a golden nude-pink gloss. the lipstick is matte which gives you the pink color but the gloss gives your lips some depth and tones down the very pink color into a more nude gold which is perfect for this look. sometimes in the summer, i’ll just wear the gloss which is equally beautiful on it’s own.

my perfume:

the tom ford orchid soleil perfume screams summer. first, let’s talk about the bottle. it’s beautiful. it’s what sold me before i even smelled it. maybe i could sense that it would smell like balmy beach nights. it’s a warm, peppery scent with notes of  tuberose. it’s very original so if you want something different, definitely pick it up for summer.

hi guys! so i did some online shopping a few weeks ago in the u.s. because i had some family visiting me in mumbai. it was such a treat because after living here, trust me, shopping in the u.s. is just a breeze. anyway, i wish i could branch out of the color blush right now because i’ve literally been crushing on it since january when i was home last, but i guess i can’t because when i saw this color, i had to have it! i also really wanted some more bell sleeves, so it was a match for me. i love everything about this dress. it’s the perfect “me” dress. the color, lace and style. the skater style with the bell sleeves reminds me of my figure skating days, which always makes me happy anyway. also, the shoes are SO pretty! i’ve been living in them. lucky for you, the dress is now majorly on sale from the time i bought it. there are only a few sizes left in this color so hurry up and grab it! also, this ysl lipstick in color lingerie pink is AMAZING! everything is linked below.

last week, my mom and i went for a quick vaca to kerala in south india. just the sound of that sounds like paradise, and it truly was. we stayed at the amazing leela property there, which was on the beach and just so beautiful and tropical. i’m lucky enough to have summer weather almost 365 days a year but being on vacation just brings a magical glow. nothing beats wavy, salty hair and a tan while staying on a lush green property! my sweet mom and sister brought me all the cute vaca clothes so i really lucked out since i didn’t have to hunt around here in india (bikinis really don’t exist)! two of my favorites were these adorable pom pom tie dyed shorts and relaxed white lace trim top! i can’t think of a better match for pom pom shorts than a beachy vaca. they are all linked below so grab them in time for summer!
