Summer Makeup: Sizzling Summer Eyes

Ahhh Summer! Lounging by the pool, enjoying the cool breeze at the beach, or strolling through downtown Manhattan on a late, humid night!

We are finally getting some warmer weather here in New York and I've felt the need to do inventory on all the hot shades I'll be sporting this Summer!

Although I enjoy a nice healthy pop of color in the warmer weather I definately lean towards bronzes, golds, oranges, and peachy shades as well!

This post is dedicated to all those wonderful shades that shout sun and fun!

Click the photos below to find out the items displayed!

When choosing my selections above I was thinking sun and heat! The colors are all perfectly suited to both the sun and the warm weather. Shimmering hues of copper, yellows, golds, bronzes, chocolates, and bronze all put me in the mood for Summer!

What are some of your Summer must have shades?

I like minty greens like the one in the UD Deluxe palette and sparkling lilac shades like my Jill Stuart shadow in the pot (that jelly-like one).

Muse, have you ever considered doing a post of what's in your makeup bag? Some of the other bloggers are doing it and it would be so cool to see yours!

Gosh, I just love m/u porn. :p
