Summer bronze

It’s been a long time since my last post!

Here I am with a summer bronze look. I went out for lunch on this very hot Sunday and I didn’t want to put too much makeup on my skin, so I came up with this glowy skin and a bronze variation on my eyes. I kept it easy on my lips too putting on a shiny and pink “gloss-stick”. Here are the details. I hope you like it!

After I moisturised my skin I applied the Benefits POREfessional face primer to hide the pores. I do have a lot of problems hiding the pores, especially with high temperatures, so this step is very important for my skin prep. While I was waiting for the face primer to soak into the skin, I applied my Zoeva Eye primer. Then I went back to the face to apply the Bourjois Healthy mixserum Fond de Teint Gel in the number 53. I took a little of the shine with the L’Oréal Nude Magique BB Powder which I put on the t-zone. On the cheeks, I applied a little layer of Shiseido Bronzing Powder in the shade 1.

After I did my brows with the Kiko Eye brow Expert kit, I contined with the eyes. Once I applied the NYX jumbo pencil in the shade yogurt as a base on the lid, I covert it with the shade “Chopper” of the UD Naked 2. I used “Snakebite” from the same palette in the crease in order to create some dimension. To highlight the brow bone, I first put a little NYX Jumbo Pencil in the color “Milk” and then, I applied the MAC “Whisper of Guilt” highlighter. In order to define the lash line, I traced a very thin line with an angled brush and the color “Blackout” from the same palette. I repeated the action on the bottom lash line. A little L’Oréal Volume millions de cils excess and my Bourjois Healthy mix concealer, also in the shade 53.

Finally, I put a little touch of my new L’Oréal GlamShine Balmy Gloss in the color 901, “Sorbet Rose”. It might look too “pinkish” but I think it leave the lips in a natural and healthy rose. As usual you will find a detailed list at the very end of the article. Enjoy!
