{beauty board} back to bronze

Spring Break is on the way, and nothing pairs better with your itty bitty bikini than beachy bronzed beauty. While sunless tanner is awesome for a full-body glow, I like to fake bake my face with a handful of makeup products that leave you with the type of lit-from-within bronze-y glow that Victoria's Secret Angel dreams are made of.

bronze

First, I apply a caramel-toned primer to my cheeks, chin, forehead, and slope of my nose, blending it with a brush {I like to use the e.l.f. Studio Fan Brush for this}. I then add golden highlighter on top of those same areas {this creates that lit-from-within glow I was talking about}. To finish, I apply gold / bronze shadow shades to my eyes, and sweep a caramel-meets-nude lipstick to my lips for a glowy pout. Here are 4 of my faves to get the look!

{1} MAYBELLINE Expert Wear Eyeshadow Quad in SUNLIT BRONZE {$4.99}

{2} SONIA KASHUK Bare Illuminating Bronzer in GODDESS 40 {$12.99}

{3} MILANI Color Statement Lipstick in DULCE CARAMELO {$5.49}

{4} MAKE UP FOR EVER Step 1 Skin Equalizer in RADIANT PRIMER CARAMEL {$36.00}

Your bronze highlighter suggestion was pure genius. I never thought of getting that (mainly because I'm so pale), but I can totally see that being the defining moment that changes your whole face and makes you glow. I'm so excited to try that tip!

I love the sun kissed glow look. I need to learn how to use some of these products so I can do it myself.
