Makeup Monday: Bronze Beauty
I don’t know about you, but I love a warm, bronzey glow to my skin in the summertime. But I don’t always have the time or desire to sit in the sun to get said summery glow.
Enter bronzer! With bronzer, without even leaving your house you can transform pale skin into warm, sun-kissed skin that looks like you spent the weekend at the beach!
Top it off with golden-bronze eyes and you have a full-face look that is both gorgeous and laid-back… which is pretty much the definition of “summer” in my book.
You will need:
- Warm Bronzer
- Warm Rose Blush
- Champagne Pearl Eyeshadow
- Twinkle Wood Eyeshadow
- Harvest Oak Eyeshadow
- Pure Gold Eyeshadow
- Deep Brown Liner
- Laveshmint Hydrating Toner
- Foundation Brush
- Blush Brush (Brand new! Link coming soon!)
- Kiss Of Coral Lip Shimmer
- Large All-Over Brush
- Small All-Over Brush
- Angled Sculptor Brush
- Smudger Brush (Brand new! Link coming soon!)
- Eyeliner Brush
First, let’s start with the face. Always cleanse and moisturize before starting your makeup routine; it will create a smooth, clean “blank canvas” upon which your makeup will really shine. Apply your foundation to your clean, dry skin as you usually would.
Now for the fun! Grab your bronzer and swirl your foundation brush in it, being sure to tap off any extra. Start at your forehead and sweep the color underneath your hairline and around to your temples. Then hit the bridge of your nose and your chin. Swirl some color underneath your cheekbones and jawline to create some contouring as well.
Now hit the apples of your cheeks with Warm Rose blush, and the tops of your cheekbones with a dab of Champagne Pearl to highlight them and add some glowy shine.
For the eyes, highlight your brow bone and inner eye corners with Champagne Pearl using the Large All-Over Brush, then take Twinkle Wood on the Small All-Over Brush on your lids from the crease to the lash line. Deepen your crease with Harvest Oak using the Angled Sculptor Brush.
Now, using the Smudger Brush, mirror that same pattern underneath your lower lash line. First use Twinkle Wood to about 3/4 of the way in to your inner corner, then Harvest Oak from your outer corner to about 1/3 of the way to the center. For an extra pop of shimmer, add a dab of Pure Gold right in the center of your lids (where your pupil would be if your eyes were open) and on the inner corners, using the Small All-Over Brush. Use the Eye Liner Brush to finish it all off with a soft line of Deep Brown and a coat of mascara.
Mist your whole face with Laveshmint Hydrating Toner to settle the minerals on your skin, and to give a dewy finish. And bonus: it’s cooling and fresh! I like to carry the bottle around with me for a spritz of cool moisture during the hot summer days.
