The truth is there are a lot of bronze makeup tutorials out there. Some have titles with the word Autumn, others back to school, fall bronze looks. Then you’ll see holiday glam bronze headlines. Come summer it’s “bronzed beachy.” The only thing that really changes in these tutorials is the nail lacquer and lip. Perhaps the foundation is a medium to fuller coverage in the cooler seasons, with a tinted moisturizer or BB cream in summer. Know what “holiday bronze” is? It means there’s glitter involved, sometimes false lashes, a red lip. We get it. The point is, once you learn a bronze eye, you’re covered year round.
This photo looks a bit cheesy, as if it were taken at GlamourShots studios. My iphone photos sometimes blur this way, sorry. But I still wanted to use it because I feel pretty in this makeup, despite the comments that “older women shouldn’t wear a dark eye.” Also, check out those hair highlights. They practically define the curls when there’s no definition.
