Starting with my base, I've been loving the Drunk Elephant D-Bronzi Serum* to add warmth to my foundations or to mix in my moisturisers for a lightweight feel. Aside from my usual bronzers which I like to use to add definition, I rely on blushers to add a bronzed look to my skin. The Milani Hermosa Rose* pick has been a favourite for many years now, but it isn't too overpowering and still looks natural every time I wear it. When you think of bronze products, my mind often wanders to the shimmers and sparkles, but it's a matte option for blusher that I reach for the most. The Glossier Dusk Cloud Paint is a perfect everyday hue that adds colour to the face without going OTT and can be used in conjunction with a variety of other products too.
Champagne highlighters go perfectly with a bronze smokey eye or a simple pop of blush. The Charlotte Tilbury Highlighting Wand is the perfect liquid illuminator as it blends perfectly into the skin and gives off the most impressive sheen. For a powder, I opt for the Anastasia Beverly Hills Amrezy Highlighter* as it's dreamy glow is just too gorgeous not to apply all over my face.
On my eyes this is where I like to experiment the most and the Urban Decay Naked Eyeshadow Palette* is the OG when it comes to a bronzed smokey eye. There's matte neutral browns and warm toned shimmers, all that help to create a wearable look. If I want to add even more glitter, I go for the Pixi Liquid Fairy Lights* as they pack a serious punch and look great on a Summer's evening date night. If I want something super easy, I blend the By Terry Ombre Blackstar* in Bronze Moon allow my bottom lash line and over the lid as it's just so quick! To highlight my inner corners I always go for the Nars Rigel Eyeshadow as it's champagne shade just picks up my entire eye area and is great if I've got a little too heavy handed.
