Nothing says summer quite like a bronze makeup look. The warm, sunny season immediately brings images of tan, bronze skin to mind. And while you’ve probably mastered self-tanner by now (you don’t want to get sun damage!), you may be wondering how you can incorporate beautiful bronze tones into your makeup look. Below, we’re sharing step-by-step tutorials on three bronze makeup looks—from face makeup to eye makeup to lip makeup—that are perfect for summer.
Want to rock a bronze complexion? Follow the steps below for a bronze face makeup look.
First thing’s first—you’ll want to prep your skin by using a makeup primer. Opt for one with a radiant finish, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Lock Makeup Primer, to complement your soon-to-be bronze complexion.
Next, create a flawless foundation by applying a full coverage, lightweight foundation. We love the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Up to 24HR Fresh Wear Foundation, Lightweight, which resists sweat, water, and transfer and has a natural finish. Apply it using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender for a seamless finish.
It’s time to bring on the bronze! Use the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer in Deep as a liquid bronzer. Apply it to your temples, jawline, the hollows of your cheeks, and the sides of your nose. Then, set the liquid with a powder bronzer, like the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Bronze It Bronzer, to keep your glow from fading or budging throughout the day.
Who says blush has to be pink or peach? Instead of reaching for a traditional blush shade, opt for one that will enhance your bronze makeup look. Think warmer hues that fall somewhere between blush and bronzer. Apply the L’Oréal Paris True Match Blush in Sweet Ginger to the apples of your cheeks, then it’s onto your next step.
What’s a bronze makeup look without some bronze highlighter? Pop the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Crushed Foils Metallic Highlighter in Gilded Glow onto your cheekbones, cupid’s bow, and the tip of your nose for the perfect dose of bronze shimmer.
You wouldn’t want your bronze makeup look to fade throughout the day, would you? Of course not! Set your look with a radiant setting spray. Spritz on the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Shake & Glow Dew Mist for a natural, dewy glow that lasts.
Want to focus your bronze makeup look on your eyes? Grab your bronze eye shadow and eyeliner, then read on to find out how.
Before we get into your bronze eye makeup look, begin by prepping your lids with an eye makeup primer.
Your eye shadow will serve as the base for your bronze eye makeup look—so take your time perfecting it! First, coat your lid with a shimmery light brown eye shadow like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Amber Rush. Then, blend the color into your crease using a matte nude shadow, like the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Mix and Matte.
Next up: Eyeliner! Start by lining your upper and lower lash lines with a brown pencil liner, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof, Up to 24HR Pencil Eyeliner in Brown, and gently smudging the line for a smoky look. Then, line your waterline with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof, Up to 24HR Pencil Eyeliner in Bronze for a shimmering pop.
Since this bronze makeup look is centered around your eyes, you’ll want to give your brows a natural-looking boost. Use the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Boost & Set Brow Mascara to do just that.
Finish your bronze eye makeup look with a few coats of brown mascara. Apply the L’Oréal Paris Unlimited Lash Lifting and Lengthening Washable Mascara in Black Brown for an instant lash-lift effect.
Our final bronze makeup look is all about your pout! Here’s how to get the look.
Outline your lips with a nude lip liner, like the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lip Liner in Nudes for Life. After you’ve outlined their shape, fill in your pout!
Editor’s note: Wondering why you would use lip liner to do anything but, well, line your lips? By using it to fill in the shape of your lips completely, you create an even base for your lipstick that will help fight fading! The more you know.
Next, color your lips with a bronze lipstick. We love the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lipstick Lipcolour in Bronze Coin because of its hydrating formula and rich color.
It’s only natural to top off your lipstick with a shimmering lip gloss. Use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Crushed Foils Metallic Lip Gloss in Luster to take your bronze lip look up a notch.
Finish the look with a bit of highlighter and all eyes will be on your beautiful bronze pout! Apply the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glow Amour Glow Boosting Drops in Golden Hour onto your cupid’s bow and you’re ready to pucker up.
Next, give your body a faux bronze boost to match your bronze makeup look! Check out our L’Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze Self-Tanner Reviews for all of our best self-tanner recs.
