Summer is here! It’s time to celebrate with a healthy bronze glow. Keep reading to see how to get the perfect bronzed eyes for the new season. I love the healthy glow that bronze tones give to your face!

Step 1: Apply an eyeshadow primer to the lids. Use a pale gold colour all over the lid and slightly above the crease. Pat the colour onto the lids in order to get an even base of colour.

Step 2: Take a shimmery bronze colour on a fluffy blending brush. Apply this just above the crease in a gentle sweeping motion. To check that you’ve done this correctly, the colour should just be visible when you’re looking straight ahead.

Step 3: Take a shimmery dark chocolate brown colour on a tapered blending brush or pencil brush. Apply this just to the crease and blend in order to remove the hard edge of colour, but don’t bring this colour higher than the crease. Skip this step if you want a softer look for the daytime.

Step 4: Use the same pale gold colour used in Step 1 to highlight the inner eye corner. Use a matte colour a few shades lighter than your skin tone to highlight the brow bone.

Step 5: Line the top and bottom lashline using a chocolate brown pencil liner and gently smudge the colour using a sponge tip/finger/cotton bud. For longer wear, set the pencil with brown eyeshadow.

To finish, curl lashes and apply mascara! The eyes are done!

On my face, I applied a light dusting of matte bronzer all over. I then used the same bronzer to concentrate colour under my cheekbones for a slight contour. I applied a shimmery liquid highlighter to my cheekbones and the bridge of my nose for a sun kissed glow.

I think this a look that will be flattering every skin colour since the bronze tones make you look healthy and beachy. Be careful not to overdose with the bronzer or you may go from beachy to peachy…to orangey!

List of products used:

As always, don’t feel pressured to use the exact same products I mentioned. But for the makeup beginner, a bronzer and a bronze eyeshadow are a good investment as they can be used everyday.

Thanks again for reading!
