Go For Gold! Summer's Hottest Colour!

Maybe it's that the weather's gone from freezing to not so chillly, or that daffodils are springing up and lambs are gambolling across fields, but we've set our sights on summer and we can't wait! Because this summer we're going for gold! ... and bronze... and champagne shimmers... Basically if it makes us think of the golden rays of the sun spreading across the water as the sun slowly dips below the horizon while we sip cocktails on a tropical beach, we want it on our bod. So what's got the crew excited? Check these gorgeous golden gals out!

Fenty Beauty by Rihanna's Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Trophy Wife is blindingly beautiful! And while it might not suit all skin tones as a highlighter, it can still totally be used as an eyeshadow. Or just smush it all over your body and pretend you're an Oscar statue.

Beauty lovers have been going nuts for Stila's Magnificent Metals eyeshadow range. I've got them on my 'to buy once I finish the no buy' list - and this shade is the first one I'm adding to my trolley. Come on down 'Gold Goddess' you glorious thing! (Followed closely by Bronzed Bell. So beautiful!)

Want to show your tootsies some love? Give them the gold star treatment with O.P.I Glitzerland! While you're at it get this shade on your fingernails as well. Sophisticated, chic and just a touch blingy - what's not to love?

Embrace your inner J-Lo and get set to glow with this divine product from Linden Leaves. The Gold Shimmer Mousse contains red rice extract and organic cold pressed chia oil, so not only will it tranform you into a shimmering vision, it will also nourish your skin while promoting the increase of collagen production. 

While a lipstick in the shade of gold might not be up everyone's alley, there's something playful about a lipstick that contains a touch of gold - like Avon's True Colour 24K Gold lipstick. The range features gorgeous colours with a hint of shimmer and a whole lot of nourishment thanks to the inclusion of Vitamin E. 

Summer. Get here already. We're ready for you. Jandals, sunnies, flippy frocks, makeup and all.

So are you a fan of the golden shades of makeup? What are your personal favourites? Is there anything we need to know about? Chat away!

Loving the look of the OPI nail polish and Stilas gold eyeshadow!! What a combo :-)

I need to get Fenty Beauty highlighter duos. The packaging alone is swoon worthy!

I love love love my Eye of Horus liquid eyeliner in gold, and I adore Sally Hansen's 'Game of Chromes' for my nails, I am yet to find the perfect illuminator with gold tinges for pale skin though.

The Game of Chromes sounds amazing!

Definitely not a fan of gold

Gold shades are so beautiful!

I am DESPERATE to get my hands on some Fenty Beauty products, they look outstanding!

Oh, these are all lovely! The nail polish probably tops my list though, it’s very wearable yet fun.

I was actually thinking the other day that my Pinterest seems to be filling up with more and more gold and bronze makeup! So pretty. Definitely jumping on this trend bandwagon.

I'm so on the gold train! Since the last Beauty Vault I have been using my Covergirl Tru Naked Goldens eyeshadow palette a lot. Everywhere between gold and red is my jam right now.

Oooohhh love gold!! Huzzah for summer :)

I do prefer a highlighter with a more warm golden or champagne sheen to it than a cooler toned one. I think quite a few of my makeup products have a gold sheen or shimmer to them.

Love, love, love! I would so use the Fenty Highlighter as an eyeshadow and the gold lips are to die for... but I’d probably settle for gold nails!

I recently brought a highlighter with a golden sheen it's incredible on my fair skin. All these products look amazing.
