Bronze Face of the Day


  Although this is a beauty blog I am definately no makeup artist so I feel a bit funny showing my makeup looks.  This is just a simple summery look that I'd wear on hot weekend days.  Being naturally very fair bronzer isn't something I normally use.  However by some sort of miracle I've picked up a (teeny tiny) bit of colour from walking around in the sun.  I thought I'd inhance this barely there tan with a new bronzer I've been loving lately.  It has been super hot and humid in Toronto this week so I've been mixing GOSH BB Cream with my foundation to make it feel lighter on my face.

  This is the bronzer I'm wearing in the above pictures.  As you can see it's very light and cool toned, perfect for light skin tones.  You can get NYC Bronzer for $2.99 at Rexall or Wal-Mart.

The other makeup I'm wearing:

Eyes:
Lid: Bronzey eyeshadow from the Sleek Original Palette
Inner corner: MAC eyeshadow in Nylon
Lower lash line: MAC eyeshadow in Mulch
Liner: NYC Liquid Eyeliner
Mascara: GOSH Catchy Eyes

Face:
Foundation: GOSH BB Cream in Sand mixed with Bourjous Healthy Mix in 53
Undereye concealer: Rimmel Match Perfection in Ivory

Cheeks:
Blush: Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Tipsy
Highlighter: Nars Highlighting Powder in Albatross

Lips:
Lipstick: Maybelline Color Whisper in Oh La La Lilac
Lipgloss: MAC Dazzleglass Creme in Demure

  1. You look realisticly tan! I like it! That bronzer looks nice, very natural, and not orange-y at all. Its been humid here too, I was literally sweating off my sunscreen yesterday.

    1. Thanks Jasmine! It's so hard to find a bronzer that's not orange on fair skin. This humidity has come so suddenly! I can't stand it.

  11. So pretty :) I have been looking for a matte bronzer for ages and I cannot find one. I might just buy a face powder thats a few shades too dark for me.
