Color Me Bluetiful: Bronze Beauty

Wow, has it really been a week since we talked to our lovelies? Sheesh...time flies when you're trying to get your life together. Anywho, we missed you all like we missed like we miss Suede Magazine (R.I.P.). So on that note...on with the posting...yaaayyyy!!!

Today's Color Me Beautiful segment was inspired by the youtube clip that was recently posted. The golden/bronzy look has been my staple for the summer. I just love the alluring "glow" that it gives off and how it plays so well with the sun & warm dewy weather. Seeing thequeenofblending at work inspired me to add a lil pizzazz to my usual look. I usually rock a rather nuetral lip with this look, but after suggesting various lip colors in the youtube post, I decided to take my own advice. I went with a soft yet funky candy pink lip, copper eyes, and a little golden bronzer.

Products Used:
Black Radiance Perfect Blend Creme Foundation with SPF 15 shade 6815
Black Radiance Golden Shimmer Mosaic Bronzer in 3512

Loreal H.i.P Cream Shadow Paint in Commanding (used as eyelid base)
Maybelline Pure Makeup liquid foundation in medium beige 3 (highlight base)
Wet & Wild eyeshadow pallette in Sand Castle (copper shade on outer corner of lid & gold shade on inner corner)
Black Radiance Desert Clay quad (bronze shade, and dark brown shade blended into crease)
Loreal H.i.P eyeshadow duo in Flare (light golden shade as highlight)
MAC fluidline in blacktrack (line upper & lower lid)
MAC pro longlash mascara in pitchblack

Joya lip liner in berry nude
Prescriptives Moonbeam Reflective Gloss in Meteor

So bluetiful ones, don't forget to embrace your inner "golden goddess" while you're heating things up during what's left of the summer. And don't be afraid to throw in a some various lip shades to add a special pop of color to your look. Hope you enjoyed the pics & feel free to tell us what some of your favorite summer make up looks are. Sharing is caring!
Keep it blue!
