Simple Bronze Summer Makeup Tutorial

Want a natural and healthy bronze-like glow for summer? Follow these 5 simple steps...

Step one: Face Use a tinted moisturizer or light coverage foundation. Since it is summertime, you do not need your face totally covered with makeup. If you prefer more of a glowy look, add a tiny drop of liquid bronzer in with your moisturizer or foundation.

Step two: Golden Eyeshadow Prime your eyes with your favorite eyeshadow primer. Then use a medium golden colored eyeshadow for you lids and a darker bronze color for your crease. Place a very light colored shadow with a golden shimmer under your brow bone and take some more of the medium golden color and line the bottom of the eyes from the outer corner to the center.

Step three: Liner and Mascara Depending on how natural or dramatic of a look you want, you could completely skip the eyeliner. If you want liner, but desire a more natural look, just line the top with a dark brown color. If you prefer a more dramatic look, line the top with black and half of the bottom with black and smudge it out. Don't forget to add a coat of mascara to make your eyes pop even more.

Step four: Bronzer Instead of a normal blush, use a bronzer on your cheeks and pull it up to your temples. If you want to look more tan, go over your cheeks a few more times with the bronzer, but be sure to blend it out so it doesn't look fake.

Step five: Natural Lips Use a nude colored lipstick with a golden shimmery gloss. This will bring out the golden shimmer from your eyes, while still being natural.
