Proof That Gold Makeup Is Summer’s Best Neutral

In the world of fashion and accessories, all manner of shine and sparkle is fair game. When it comes to makeup however, metallics can be intimidating—especially in lipstick form. If anyone can convince us to get over those fears it’s Tom Ford, who made gold lips look downright wearable in his Fall 2015 ad campaign. (With dewy skin and practically no mascara, the look is surprisingly neutral.) While we aren’t convinced that this bold lipstick look will fit seamlessly into our beauty routines, we’re feeling mighty inspired to break out gold-laced bronzers, shadow sticks, and body oils. Here, our favorite gilded beauty buys on shelves now.
