BRONZE SUMMER MAKEUP ROUTINE

Hello Loves and happy Monday!

Today I’d like to share with you my new summer makeup routine. All the sweat and heat outside can really mess up my face fast so I came up with this routine that will keep my skin feeling light but will also give me that bronze glow, so much needed in a summertime!

I started to use fake tan on my body and face from time to time, when I feel like being more bronze or bronze at all. I’m naturally super pale person and when sun hits me all I get later is red and irritated skin. 😦 But that’s what is fake tan for, right?

Why am I even talking about fake tan when I was supposed to present my makeup routine? The thing is when I use the fake tan I need to pick cosmetics in darker shade – foundation and concealer. The routine below is quite versatile and I only change these 2 products depending on if I’m tanned or not. I feel this routine is very universal so you can repeat it yourself easily with the products you already own and match your skintone.

P.S. I’m describing my routine in order in which I like to apply all my products.

So without more rumbling here it is, my bronze summertime makeup routine!

Recently I finished up my trusty Color Correcting Liquid Primer in Green from NYX. Even though I really liked this product I decided to look for something else that will combine smoothness of the base with color correction. I went to NYX store and got this Studio Perfect Primer in green. As a start to my makeup I apply small amount with my hands, gently spreading around my face. Before the base I like to use moisturiser on my face and let it sit for a while to sink in to my skin.

Then I move to foundation. When I’m pale I only use my MAC Face and Body foundation. When I’m tanner I like to mix it with 123 Perfect CC cream by Bourjois. Depending on my skintone I mix them both in different proportions or when I’m very tan I use only CC cream. To apply foundation I also use my fingers. I find this technique makes my foundation to blend with my skin better leaving very light and natural effect than when I’m using a brush or a beauty blender. Therefore for a heavier coverage I’d recommend using a brush.

To complete my skin base I use NARS concealer under my eyes and then set all my face with MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Powder. When I’m tanner I prefer to use Maybelline Instant Age Rewind concealer.

As my skin is ready I start with shaping and adding color. First to my brows with ka-BROW Cream-Gel by Benefit and then with Hoola bronzer under my cheekbones, on the sides of my nose, at the top of my forehead and under my jawline. I like to make my face a little sculpted and bronzed. I always add little by little. It’s easier to add bronzer than take it off. It leaves my skin looking sun kissed and pretty.

After bronzer I move to my favourite Nars Orgasm blush that leaves my cheeks with beautiful color and golden pink shimmer highlighting my cheekbones. Since it’s summertime and usually quite hot outside I set everything with NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray. After setting spray is dry I put on Sephora Outrageous Curl mascara.

 

How about you? What are the products you use daily for that summertime look? Let me know!
