You’ll Be a Bronze Goddess After Following This Tutorial

You name the season, and you’ll find a reason to glow. Summer? Just an excuse to pack on more bronzer. Autumn? Go ahead and show off your post-summer bronze. Winter? The perfect time to bring a little life back to your complexion. Even during the spring, you can start channeling your best summer spirit with a kiss of glowy radiance in your skin. We love a touch of year-round warmth for the healthy glow it gives our makeup looks, and that’s why we’re obsessed with this super easy tutorial for everyday bronze makeup from lifestyle blogger Kimmy Nguyen.

Nguyen starts by tapping a bronzer on her cheeks, forehead, and chin; she then takes that same shade and buffs it out around her eye area for extra dimension. Tip alert! Using the same shade for both sculpting your face and defining your eyes helps tie your whole look in together. So if you’re the type to wonder if the shades you’ve picked out actually go together, trying this method of using the same shades in multiple areas of your face might be the way to go. Next, Nguyen applies a gorgeous bronze shadow onto the tops of her lids and follows up by adding another bronzer shade to her cheeks—this time, a little bit higher than where she laid down the first bronzer. Hellooooo, dimension! Then it’s time for arguably one of the best moments in any beauty routine: highlighter. Nguyen dips into a highlighter with a fluffy brush, then takes the shade across the tip of her nose, Cupid’s bow, and inner corner of her eyes. As a final step, she buffs out with her bottom lash line with her original bronzer shade (yup, you guessed it—bringing the whole look together!).

And voilà—you’re now well on your way to achieving your most radiant, bronze-goddess goals.
