FOTD: Natural Flawless Bronzed

I haven’t done a FOTD post in ages, but as I keep getting some many compliments on my flawless complexion I thought I would share with you my products I’ve been using.

FOTD: Natural Flawless Bronzed  This look is super easy and relatively quick. It also is great if you are going away for a weekend or want minimal makeup to carry with you as my bronzer palette (Which is a total bargain and I’ll talk about shortly) is used on my cheeks as blush, for contouring, bronzing and eye shadow too!

Products used to create this look…

The Base – I apply my base with a Real Techniques Buffing Brush (Post Here). The concealers are blended out with a Real Techniques Deluxe Crease Brush. I set the base with my Maybelline Super Stay 24h powder (Post Here) as I find this lasts amazingly well on my skin using my Real Techniques Retractable Bronzer Brush (Post Here) and finish with a quick spritz of MAC Fix + (As it takes away the powdery look I don’t like leaving me with a fresh glow).

The Cheeks, Contour, Bronzer and Highlight – For my contour I use the deepest shade (Bottom left) of the ELF Cool Bronzer. This compact is a steal at £3.95! I mix all 4 shades to bronze my face up and then apply the rosy bronzed shade (Bottom right) on my cheeks as a subtle bronzed cheek. For highlight I use ELF Pinktastic Baked Blush which is a perfect dupe for MAC Soft and Gentle MSF.

The Eyes –  On my lid I use the white shade of the ELF Cool Bronzer. In the crease I blend the deepest shade on the bottom left (That I also use as my contour). I then blend a small amount of the bottom right shade (The one I use on my cheeks) into the outer v and also drag this and blend along my lower lash line. I use the same brush for all of my eyeshadow which is the Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush. On the upper water line I use the Eye Of Horus Smokey Goddess Eye Pencil (Post here). This works just like a gel liner and stays put on me all day! I also apply a small amount to my outer corner blended into my lash line (But only a third of the way across), creating a small wing. I curl my lashes and apply 1 coat of 2True Pro FLASHeyes Mascara (Post here) my all time favourite mascara and on my lower lashes for just a small amount of definition I use the L’Oreal Telescopic False Lash Effect Mascara in Brown. I also set my under eyes with the white powder of the ELF Cool Bronzer. My brows are filled in with my trusty Collection Brow Definer in Blonde as always.

The Lips – On the lips I keep it nude and natural with Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Nude Delight. Nude Delight is a great dupe for MAC Shy Girl.

Overall, I think its a really nice put together look. It doesn’t take a lot of time at all to do and my skin looks flawless. I also love that it lasts all day too even without a primer. This is my go to look at present. I am loving a more natural eye look with the definition being place on the lashes mostly. I can see this carrying through into Summer and all I would need to do really is get MAC Face and Body in N3 to achieve this as I tan really well.

If you would like to see this look in a quick tutorial, drop me a comment below and I’ll film it as its really quick and easy and about a 5-10 minute look!

Have you a go to look at present?

Lots of Love,

Mel xxxx
