It’s summer. This means that 99% of my looks will be based around bronze/warm shades of eyeshadow, plenty of bronzer and either a super nude or super bright lip. I think it would be wrong of me to purposely create a look that I wouldn’t wear on a day to day basis because let’s be honest, most of us have work, school or something else that takes up the majority of our week.
So you may be thinking, oh great, here’s another bronzed smoky eyed look – but you’ll be kidding yourself if you say you don’t stick to a similar style 80% of the week. For that reason, I’m proudly bringing you another bronzed smoky eye tutorial, this time with that bit of extra definition – meaning you could take this look from day to night very easily. Just whack on a pair of falsies!
I hope you enjoy my ‘safe’ looks and I’ll keep them coming! If there’s anything you do want me to try, be it another kind of smoky bronze or even something crazy please let me know in the comments. I’ll be sure to use it as inspiration!
Without further ado, I present to you my bronzed smoky eye with nude lip..
