During the summer time, I have been loving the natural bronze glow makeup look! With the right products it is very simple to create!
The bronze makeup look is great, as it works for so many occasions! You can simplify the look and use lighter coverage products for an everyday summer fresh face. If you use higher coverage bases and more dramatic contours and highlighters, the look becomes very appropriate for any formal event!
With the bronze look, it may be a good idea to decide what your focus is! Eyes, lips, checks, face! If your bold, of course pick more than one but as a little tip, if you are going bold on the checks, go simple on the eyes and vice versa.
Steps to take to perfect the Bronze Beauty look
1. Start with your preferred base (foundation, powder, tinted moisturiser etc)
2. If you have used foundation/ tinted moisturiser as the base, try and avoid powdering it, so that the natural glow of your skin can shine through.
3. Decide whether you want to do a full on contour on the checks or just an all over bronze effect.
4. With both Bronzing and contouring, focus the products under the cheekbones, under the jawline and around the edges of your face.
5. choose a highlighter and apply it on the top of your cheekbones, down the brigade of your nose, middle of forehead and cupids bow.
6. Finish the look of with your preferred eye look and a finishing setting spray.
