Hey, guys! It’s a beautiful day here with lots of sunshine, so I went for beachy makeup today. I feel as though I achieved a bronzed look without using bronzer! (Note: I don’t have a tan, and these photos are unfiltered.)
I used the foundation and eye concealer I apply every single day, along with my usual mascara, eyeliner, and brow gel routine. But here are the items I credit to my bronzy glow:
- Clinique Chubby Stick Sculpting Highlight in Hefty Highlight: I applied and blended above my blush line, on my temples and above the ends of my eyebrows, and on the bridge of my nose.
- Clinique Chubby Stick Cheek Colour Balm in Plumped Up Peony: I dotted it under cheekbones and on apples and blended. This is the perfect color for the bronzed look- It is pink enough to be blush but dark enough to give your cheeks a sun-kissed shade. I got this as bonus from Clinique after purchasing some necessities. What an awesome bonus! They give the best samples- substantial in size and highly usable.
- Pixie by Petra Mesmerizing Mineral Palette Eyeshadow in Copper Peach: I covered my lids and brow bones with shade 1 and mixed shades 2 and 3 into my creases. I finished with dabbing shade 1 under the peaks of my eyebrows and on the inner corners of my eyes for extra sparkle.
- bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss in Show Off: This gloss is the perfect peachy color for summer, and I have a feeling it would look great on any skintone. I am obsessed with it! You can watch my You Tube video about it HERE.
There you have it! A bronzed look without bronzer. I feel like if I had actually added bronzer to the mix, I would have looked overly done and like I was trying too hard to look sun-kissed. Do you agree??
That’s what’s up with my makeup routine today. I hope you have a fabulous weekend, and, as always, thanks for reading!
