A Natural Bronzy Summertime Look

This look utilises shimmery golds and bronzes to create a glowy summertime face. I'm going to make this how to shorter than my last FOTD (the Gray Smokey Eye), so if you want the nitty-gritty details on what foundation I used etc. check out that guide- it's got everything in excruciating detail.

Here we go:

So...this is a nice natural look that ca be paired with pretty much any oufit, and quicky revved up for evening with a darker lip. Doesn't require much technical expertise to create either.


So, for the eyes, I used Milani Runway Basics eyeshadow set in Designer Browns.

1. Apply shimmer pale gold shade (2nd from the top) all over the lid and blend up and over the crease and browbone.

2. Using the copper shade (4th from the top), apply all over lid using a small shadow brush.

3. Using, the smaller edge of the sponge applicator included in the kit, applu some of the pale gold shadow from 1. to the inner corner of the eye and blend under the inner corner of the lower lid.

4. Line eyes with MAC Eye Kohl in Smolder, and apply a generous coat of TooFaced Lip Injection mascara. Separate lashes with a lash comb.


For the lips, a coat of Maybelline Shine Seduction Lipcolor in Sun Kissed was applied.


The cheek colour is barely noticeable in my pics- but it's there.

Apply NARS blush in Lovejoy to the cheeks, and then apply a very light dusting of NARS Orgasm over this.

Dust thin lines of NARS blush in Albatross over cheekbones, cupid's bow, temples, bridge of nose and hollow of chin. Blend well.

Voila! You are now a bronze goddess!!
