Summer Makeup: Bronzed Goddess – 2015 Routine

Do you find that you have certain items sitting in your makeup collection that you only ever use in certain times of the year? Well, speaking of those items, here are mine! These products (minus foundation, liner, mascara and my ABH pomade) are items that I reserve for the summer months to give my face a glowing, bronzed-goddess feel!

Note: The images below have had no filtering or airbrushing – just me and my DSLR. These are accurate representations of the finishes of products and their shades.

For the summer time, I love to load up on bronzers and highlighters (lets be honest: I always load up on highlighter). I tend to use my warmer toned products, despite being a cool-toned person myself as it gives me a more sun-kissed look.


About the look:

The look as a whole is not super dramatic. It’s a warm, earthy toned look that focuses on all the features – not necessarily downplaying some and emphasizing others – but working on making the face as a whole more bronzed, more summery and adding warmth.

Enough talk! Makeup deets time:

Foundation: Clinique 2-in-1 Foundation + Concealer in 9 Neutral
Concealer: Maybelline Fit Me (I use this rather than my MAC Pro- Long wear as its not as heavy)
Bronzer: Sonia Kashuk Creme Bronzer or Hourglass Creme to Powder Bronze (switch off days) ((pictured above: SK))
Highlight: Victoria’s Secret Luminous Cheek Highlighter in Striking
Lips: Marc Jacobs Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
