At this time of year, having a quick and simple bronze makeup routine at hand is essential!
Here are some easy steps to follow to create your own bronze makeup look…
Skincare and Priming
To prep my skin before this look I use a water based moisturiser. It holds my makeup in place, and allows me to prime with a little illuminating moisture balm to slightly drier areas and cheeks for an added glow.
Concealing and Foundation
I always start with Instant Full Cover Concealer (Sand) to brighten my under eyes bringing it down towards the cheekbone. I do this first before foundation as this step will make your skin tone instantly look more even needing less foundation, the key to glowing makeup.
For foundation, I use my Foundation Stick (Natural) over areas I feel need extra coverage. Avoid too much foundation for this look, the less foundation you wear, the more the skincare will glow through giving a “lit from within” glow.
Define and Glow
Apply bronzing powder (Stonestreet) to where the sun would naturally hit your face. Forehead, cheekbones, top of the nose and jawline. More is more with bronzer when creating this look, just ensure you have the right tone of bronzer so it doesn’t go too dark/orange.
I then dust highlighting powder across my cheekbones and lightly through the centre of the face. Ensure your highlighter gives a brightening effect to the skin and isn’t darker than your skin tone. Fairer skin tones should use a Pink Glow highlighter where as warmer skin tones should opt for Bronze Glow.
I finish with a pop of cream pot rouge to the apples of the cheeks, this brings out the effect of moisture in the skin. This look works well with coral tones, my favourite being Fresh Melon.
Add a wash of molten bronze cream shadow stick over the eyelids and blend into the crease with your fingertips. This is the dream product to get glistening lids in minimal time. Finish with a dusting of bronzing powder through the crease of your eyes, a fine, defined liner to the lash line and a layer of your favourite mascara.
Rum Raisin Lip Pencil (obvs) diffused with a lipgloss, I like to use a clear gloss so it creates a wet lip look without too much colour. Finish with pressing a little pot rouge through the centre of the lips to tie everything together!
