sunkissed & bronzed.





This post is a little late, but I finally have a chance to post this look up after the busy week I’ve been having so far! For this look, I was aiming for a very bronzed and dewy look, as it was a very humid and muggy out that day. Instead of using my usual Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation, I decided to go with more of a lightweight kind of coverage for the dewy and natural look. As for my eyeshadows, I stuck with more of the bronzed and dark browns for this look using my Motives Pro Palette and my Smashbox Full Exposure palette.

Keep reading below on how I achieved this makeup look! 🙂

  1. Foundation: Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer (Oil Free)  in “Nude”
  2. Eye base Primer: Sigma Beauty Eye Base Primer in “Persuade”
  3. Begin filling in the outer crease with the color “Cappuccino” from the Motives Pro Palette
  4. Take the color “Hazelnut” from the Motives Pro Palette and apply to the inner crease, blending away in a sideways V shape for the smokey eyed look
  5. Take a smaller blending brush, and use the color “M1” from the Smashbox Full Exposure Palette and go over the inner crease area and blend into the previous color for a bigger smokey eye effect
    *This will also help make your eyes seem bigger, adding more dimension and depth*
  6. Take the color “Bedroom Eyes” from the Motives Pro Palette and apply on the rest of the lid for the base
  7. As for the highlight color, take the color “S4” from the Smashbox Full Exposure Palette and apply all underneath the brow
  8. Eyeliner: Motives Cosmetics Gel Eyeliner in “Little Black Dress”
  9. Mascara: L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Waterproof Mascara
  10. Bronzer: Motives Cosmetics Bronzer in “Miami Glow”
    *I used a lot of bronzer on the cheek bones and also lightly applied it all over for a more bronzed look*
  11. Blush: Motives Cosmetics Blush in “Lust”
  12. Lips: Lipliner – MAC Cosmetics in “Subculture” | Lipstick – MAC Cosmetics in “Half n’ Half”
  13. Setting Spray: Motives Cosmetics “10 Years Younger Setting Spray”
