Natural Bronze: A Summer Makeup Tutorial!

During the summer, I usually like to wear one of two looks, a super natural look or a bronze look. Today's post is going to be a bronze look that is perfect for summer, because its more on the natural side which is good for the warm summer days! This look is also good whether you are just going to hang out outside with your friends or just going out for the night. Bronze colors are so pretty in the summer, especially when the sun hits your face. The color bronze also looks good with any skin tone and any eye color, so this is a very versatile look. Read on to see how to achieve a natural bronze look!

First apply a tinted moisturizer with SPF to protect your skin from the sun. Next, take a bronzer with a tiny bit of shimmer and apply it lightly to your temples, top of your forehead, the hollows of your cheeks, chin, and nose. These are the points of your face where the sun will naturally hit. 
Next, take the bronzer and mix it with a peach blush and apply it to the apples of your cheeks to add some color. Apply a highlighter on the top of your cheekbones to add more brightness to your face.

Apply a light champange/gold color in the inner corner and center of the lid. Next, take a golden champange color and apply it to the outer corner and blend it into the center of the eye. Take the bronzer from before and apply the color with a fluffy brush into the crease and blend well.
Taking a golden shadow pencil or eyeliner, line your bottom lash line, from the outer end and fading it towards the inner corner.

 Next, apply a dark brown eyeliner to the upper lash line and finish off with black mascara.

For lips, apply any light color that suits you. Darker colors can clash with the bronze look so go for a more lighter pink/peach color to finish off the look. 

I hope this helped!

    I randomly stumbled a pon your blog and I love it! Following for sure. ;)

    It's winter here, but I love to do the whole bronzed look anyways. Gives me a fresher, brighter look when it's dreary outside.

    Look forward to reading more of your stuff,
